Longvida Optimized Curcumin Extract claims to provide potent antioxidant properties designed to neutralize free radicals in the body. According to the manufacturer, as a polyphenol curcumin, its formula can boost the activity of enzymes in your body (although no details are provided on which enzymes, and what their effects/benefits are). Additionally, this formula is said to reduce inflammation in the digestive tract and colon to help with digestion. And its anti-inflammatory effects are claimed to promote cellular health. Quite the list of claims. Does it live up to its billing? Read our review below to find out.
What is in Longvida Optimized Curcumin Extract?
Curcumin is the only active ingredients in this formula. It is mainly extracted from turmeric though can be found in smaller amounts in ginger. Curcumin, also known as curcuminoid, has similar effects as other polyphenols, organic micronutrients that act as powerful antioxidants. When in normal form, curcumin generally has a poor bioavailability. This formula, according to the manufacturer, promises to improve curcumin’s bioavailability to help it reach all parts of your body.
Other ingredients include lecithin and stearic acid in the capsule. This formula doesn’t contain piperine or unstable oils from turmeric roots.
How Do You Use Longvida Optimized Curcumin Extract?
Unlike most curcumin supplements which are formulated as capsules, this product comes in powder form. The manufacturer suggests taking 200 mg daily. Note that the manufacturer emphasizes on the product label that dosage should be apportioned using a scale that measures milligrams.
You can purchase a 30 g jar of Longvida Optimized Curcumin Extract from the manufacturer’s official website for $29.99. A 60 g bottle of this formula was selling for$54.99. We didn’t find special discounts or offers for customers who purchase more than one bottle. Shipping is free for all domestic orders exceeding $50.00. The 30 g bottle would last about 5 months at 200 mg per day.
Is there a Guarantee?
Unfortunately, we did not find a money back guarantee on the manufacturer’s website. This can be an indication that this formula is not as effective as it alleges.
The Conclusion of our Longvida Optimized Curcumin Extract Review
According to our analysis, Longvida Optimized Curcumin Extract may be helpful, providing a number of health benefits, especially if its proprietary process for increasing the bioavailability of its active ingredients works. And we like the fact that it is quite affordable.
However, there were not enough customer reviews to give us a sense of its real-world effectiveness. And we are disappointed with the lack of a money back guarantee whose absence means, in practical terms, that new customers have no way of testing the product’s effectiveness without risking their money. There are many competitive supplements out there that will allow customers to return opened and used product for a refund. We would recommend looking for such products, rather than trying this one.
