Longvida® Safety

Longvida® has been self-affirmed GRAS since 2012 and has been extensively investigated for its efficacy and safety in multiple human clinical trials, animal studies, and in in vitro experimental studies.

 

Gota et al (2010) investigated the pharmacokinetics of Longvida® compared to 95% standard curcuminoids in a crossover, double-blind, comparative pharmacokinetic analysis in healthy adult human subjects. In these healthy subjects, the mean peak concentration of curcumin (Cmax) achieved from dosing 650mg of Longvida® SLCP was 22.43 ng/mL, whereas plasma curcumin from dosing an equal quantity of unformulated 95% curcuminoids extract was not detected (<1 ng/ml). In the same study, administration of Longvida® in oral dosages of 2000mg, 3000mg, and 4000mg (containing 400-600mg of curcumin, respectively), with 8oz of water to osteosarcoma patients showed high plasma concentrations and dose-related AUCs. Overall, good tolerability was noted in both healthy and osteosarcoma groups.

OptiMSM® and Suphur: Nature's Beauty Mineral

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a rich source of sulphur (34% by weight) and a key component of collagen that supports the skin’s structural framework. It is also a building block of keratin, the main structural constituent of hair and nails.

 In recent years, Bergstrom Nutrition, the manufacturers of OptiMSM® has employed the most cutting-edge technology to research how OptiMSM® works to support healthy, younger skin. Findings have demonstrated that OptiMSM® may reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and elasticity and provide overall support to the structural integrity of the skin. Furthermore OptiMSM® benefits may also help the skin, hair and nails to regain and retain a more youthful appearance, with only 1 gram daily (study awaiting for publication). A brief overview of the finding of this recent reseach can be downloaded here.

OptiMSM® is a USA made, 99.9% pure, consistent and high-quality form of MSM, backed by extensive scientific and toxicological data and more than 30 years’ experience. To learn more, please visit our dedicated page or contact us.

Product Highlight: Ester-C®

Ester-C® Calcium Ascorbate -Threonate was discovered back in the early 80s, when its inventor, an ever-curious doctor and scientist set out on a quest for the first stomach-friendly Vitamin. The result of his research is what we know today as Ester-C®, a unique form of Vitamin C.

Clinical studies show that Ester-C® increases vitamin C levels in white blood cells, which are essential part of the immune system. Ester-C® stays in the body longer than regular vitamin C, up to 24 hours. The naturally occurring metabolites in the formula are the reason why it lasts longer than generic Vitamin C. Ester-C® has neutral pH, therefore designed to be non-acidic so it can be taken all year long and in a variety of application and formats. All the EFSA Claims for Vitamin C can be used for Ester-C®, with the benefits and advantages of this patented ingredient.

Longvida®: New Study

“Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of Capsule Longvida® Optimized Curcumin (solid lipid curcumin particles) in knee osteoarthritis: a pilot clinical study” is the title of the latest publication about Longvida® in the Journal of Inflammation Research.

The independent double-blind, placebo-controlled, human clinical trial demonstrated that oral administration of Longvida® (400mg twice a day) was found to be effective and safe in alleviating symptoms in patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis when administered for 90 days. This improvement was comparable to sub-therapeutic doses of ibuprofen. Significant improvements in VAS and WOMAC scores compared to baseline were observed. Longvida® was found to be “faster acting” in providing “pain relief” compared to ibuprofen in the first 30 days. No serious adverse events were reported, therefore this study further confirms the safety of Longvida®.

Bacognize® & Sleep Support

Clinical research indicates that Bacognize® may offer a broad array of benefits for cognitive health linked to major neuroprotective mechanisms including neurotransmitter receptor (serotonin) binding activity. This is thanks to its natural spectrum standardization to specific bacopa glycosides, tested and confirmed for serotonin receptor activity.Bacognize® has 3 human clinical studies and 3 preclinical studies for memory, mood, and focus and can be used in daily life or specifically in sports to help focus without using stimulants.  Clinical research is available from our Bacognize® dedicated page.

Furthermore, research suggests that proprietary Bacognize® extract may help to both promote better quality of sleep and support the regulation of sleep cycles by interacting with serotonin receptors, helping to alleviate stress, and providing antioxidation benefits.
