The Benefits of Longvida Optimized Curcumin
With so many curcumin products claiming high bioavailability these days, how do you know what is the best curcumin supplement for you?

Longvida Optimized Curcumin was created as a solution to the curcumin problem of low bioavailability and poor tissue absorption.

Continuing to Explore Carrageenan and Contro...
In the spirit of transparency, it is important that we address the rationale behind why certain supplements are developed with ingredients and processes that challenge convention.

The Birds and the B’s: B Vitamins and ...
Okay everyone gather around, it’s time we have the talk… You know the benefits of B vitamins, a.k.a. the transmission fluid of our bodies, the 8-10 essential B vitamins as well as some “B vitamin-like” molecules, participate in numerous reactions throughout the body and are integral to the metabolism of the macronutrients (proteins, carbs and fats.) Other tasks more specific to certain members of the B-complex group of vitamins include support for the brain and central nervous system, the growth and development of red blood cells, the maintenance of healthy skin and muscle tone, immune function and hormone activity.
