Optimized Curcumin with Neurophenol™ is a unique formula containing two clinically supported and trademarked ingredients: Longvida® Optimized Curcumin with extended absorption and bioavailability, and Neurophenol™, a proprietary blend of standardized blueberry and grape extracts.
Curcumin is a naturally occurring biologically active group of compounds from turmeric. Traditionally, Herbal Medicine has used turmeric as an anti-inflammatory to help relieve joint pain. Researchers believe curcumin’s mechanism of action is likely mediated through its ability to inhibit enzymes involved in the body’s inflammatory response – including cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and lipoxygenase (LOX) – and induce nitric oxide synthase. Curcumin also inhibits inflammatory mediators, including thromboxanes and leukotrienes, and affects intracellular signaling cascades involving NF-ÎºB and mitogen-activated protein kinases to further support joint comfort. Neurophenol™ provides flavonoids from standardized extracts of blueberry and grape, such as anthocyanidins, monomers, dimmers and oligomers, to provide antioxidant support.
