Curcumin Optimized 90 capsules - Longvida curcumin-extract with methyl-B12 and vitamin C | Power Supplements
Curcumin is quickly gaining popularity. At least one in five Americans aged 55 and older who use supplements take a curcumin supplement. The use of curcumin is taking off rapidly in Europe too. It is now the most popular supplement.
Curcumin is a natural substance that is present in the root of the turmeric plant (Curcuma), also known as the Golden Spice from India. Turmeric is also widely used as a spice in Indian cuisine. Curcumin is one of the substances that give turmeric its yellow colour.
Turmeric also contains closely related compounds such as desmethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Together, these compounds are known as curcuminoids. The turmeric spice contains about 3% curcuminoids. These curcuminoids can be found in Optimized Curcumin.
The curcuminoids in this supplement are aided by vitamin C, a vitamin that contributes to normal formation of collagen and thus normal cartilage function. Optimized Curcumin also contains vitamin B12 and methylcobalamin. Vitamin B12 plays a role in the cell division process and contributes to normal psychological function.
Optimal absorption, safe absorption
On its own, curcumin - just like the other curcuminoids - is not well absorbed by the body. To get the most out of curcumin supplements, scientists have sought different ways to improve this absorption. The best method is one that combines very good absorption with maximum safety of use.
Longvida® Optimized Curcumin was selected as the ingredient that excels in these two qualities. The phospholipids method used for this curcumin ensures a 95-times higher absorption of curcumin. In contrast to several other methods, it does not have any potential adverse effects.

By choosing Optimized Curcumin , you are choosing quality.
The right dosage. Because of the varying and generally low absorbability of many curcumin preparations, it is often difficult to specify a correct dosage. With Longvida® Optimized Curcumin this is not a problem. A total of 19 scientific studies have been conducted with this ingredient up to 2018. These studies have shown that already with 400 mg Longvida® a large amount of curcuminoids find their way through the human body. After more than 7 hours half of the absorbed curcuminoids are still active, and 24 hours after intake a significant amount remains in the bloodstream. Thanks to this long-lasting release, you only have to take one dose of Optimized Curcumin a day.
Guaranteed quality. This top-quality ingredient is produced by Verdure Sciences, an American company that has widely invested in scientific research. The processing of Curcuma plants into the final ingredient is done in conformity with ISO 22000 and ISO 9001 standards. The processing of the ingredients into capsules takes place in the Netherlands under strict procedures (GMP standard).
Independently tested. The end product is randomly tested for heavy metals and biological pollutants by the independent laboratory NutriControl

How to prevent getting sick from the flu
You can prevent germs from making you ill in two ways: prevent entry into the body by careful hygiene, and if they do get in, make sure your body’s natural immune system is able to fight these germs, so they self-destruct before overwhelming the system.
Most flu germs are spread in two ways:
- touching such as hand-to-hand contact
- droplet spread when germs ride along on tiny water droplets that are sneezed or coughed into the air
Try these flu prevention tips to avoid person-to-person spread:
- avoid shaking hands, but bow or give a head nod
- avoid nose-picking as the nose is a breeding ground for germs
- sneeze into a disposable handkerchief and if you don't have one available, sneeze inside your elbow
- shun coughers and sneezers as much as possible.
- avoid crowded rooms
PFAS pollutants causing turmoil
In October, nearly every construction project came to a grinding halt in the Netherlands, because not a single project except the smallest ones can be completed without excessive paper work or laboratory tests.
Why? The current legal threshold for PFAS, an abbreviation for perfluorinated alkylated substances has been set extremely low until the government is able to define a proper health limit for contaminated soil so as to prevent contamination of clean soil with more heavily contaminated soil.
If cemeteries hadn't been exempt from the rule, not a single dead body could have been interred, since PFAS-chemicals , also known as 'forever chemicals' have accumulated in our bodies to an extent that exceeds the legally set threshold, which is currently as low as the lowest possible detection level.
Take 1 to 2 capsules daily,with food.
For enhanced joint protection, take 1 capsule 2 times per day or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
Do you have difficulty swallowing capsules? You can open the capsule by separating the two halves and just use the powder. You can combine it with liquids such as water, fruit juice, or yoghurt.
