Curcumin-SLCP 60 capsules - Longvida solid lipid curcumin particles | Vitals
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 Curcumin-SLCP.
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 Curcumin-SLCP , 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® Curcumin-SLCP 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.

Leptin, leptin resistance and SIRT1
After demand for resveratrol and pterostilbene went up considerably, due to a remark on tv by a doctor about its' effect on leptin and cardiovascular function, we got a lot of requests to explain how leptin works.
Currently, a major topic in the field of obesity research is the link between obesity and the hormone leptin. Some evidence suggests that obese-prone individuals don’t respond to increasing leptin levels in the same way that non-obese-prone individuals do, which is the reason obesity is now being associated with possible “leptin resistance.” Scientists first discovered leptin in 1994, after years of research focused on hormones that affect body weight and calorie intake. While initially researchers believed the discovery could be used to create powerful weight loss supplements, this has never happened.
How does leptin function in the body and where does the hormone come from? Leptin interacts with areas of the brain that control hunger and eating behavior. The nickname “the starvation hormone” has been given to leptin because levels tend to plummet when someone restricts their calorie intake too much, exercises more and loses body fat. These are all factors involved in what’s called “starvation mode.”
Meanwhile, ghrelin is called a “hunger hormone” that increases your desire to eat.
At your ideal “set point weight,” fat cells produce a given amount of leptin, which maintains the internal energy balance needed for necessary cellular function and proper weight management. In most healthy adults, changes in body weight will trigger changes in leptin, causing appetite to either increase when body fat falls or decrease when body fat rises — although in some susceptible individuals this energy-balance system seems to malfunction.
There’s still a lot to learn about how leptin resistance or decreased sensitivity to leptin’s signals develops, and what can be done to prevent or reverse it. Many experts believe that eating a highly processed diet — especially while also leading a stressful and mostly sedentary lifestyle — is the perfect storm for developing leptin resistance.
Even if someone is genetically susceptible to weight gain or obesity, there’s still a lot they can do to help prevent this from happening, especially eating a nutrient-dense diet, getting enough exercise and taking steps to manage stress.
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
Take 1 capsule daily,with a meal.
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.
