Frequently asked questions
What is curcumin?
Curcumin is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound primarily found in turmeric (Curcuma longa) root. You can find turmeric in many different foods and drinks either as a spice or coloring additive.
Does Longvida Optimized Curcumin contain magnesium stearate?
Myodyne Longvida Optimized Curcumin does not contain magnesium stearate. Nor do we add any fillers or flow agents to our vegetarian capsules. The ingredients found after "Other ingredients" underneath the supplement facts panel are apart of the proprietary Longvida SLCP Technology. This absorption technology is what allows Longvida to be effective.
Does Myodyne Longvida Optimized Curcumin contain GMOs?

Is Myodyne Optimized Curcumin manufactured in the United States?

What does Myodyne Optimized Longvida contain?
Myodyne optimized curcumin contains Longvida®, a patented natural curcumin extract that was developed by an elite group of neuroscientists at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Verdure Sciences.
What makes Longvida® curcumin superior to other forms of curcumin?
Longvida® contains SLCP™ technology that allows efficacious concentrations of free form curcumin to penetrate target tissues such as the brain. No other curcumin on the market can provide this significant benefit except for Longvida®. Longvida is the only proven curcumin on the market to get free curcumin into the blood stream, not glucuronidated or inactivated curcumin, which is common of other brands.
Why is absorption so critical? Why can’t I just increase the dosage of any standard curcumin?
When it comes to curcumin, the key factor is how much of it is absorbed into the bloodstream, not how much is actually consumed. Taking increased dosages will not guarantee that your body will absorb more. Effective levels of absorption are imperative to achieve the full range of health benefits from curcumin.
What additional benefits does Longvida® offer?
A randomized placebo controlled 30-day study conducted at The Ohio State University showed improved biomarkers in healthy brain aging, cerebro and cardiovascular health as well as amyloid deposition. Some of the many benefits detailed in the study include the following:
- Reduction of circulating amyloid beta
- Increased blood antioxidant activity
- Reduced blood lipids (plasma triglycerides)
- Increased vasodilator activity (plasma nitric oxide)
- Improved liver enzyme levels (ALT)
Is Myodyne Optimized Curcumin safe?
Yes, Longvida® has not exhibited acute high dose toxicity at the highest dose tested, a dose equivalent to 1,000 times the recommended dose. Longvida is also self-GRAS (generally recognized as safe).
Are heavy metals a concern with Longvida?
No, Longvida meets or exceeds California Proposition 65 for heavy metal parameters. California Proposition 65 is amongst the highest of standards for heavy metal testing.
