What Is It?
CurcuMIND provides a high dose of Optimized Curcumin in synergy with vegan vitamin D3, a first in the world combination from AOR. Optimized Curcumin was specially formulated to provide a solution to the curcumin conundrum of low bioavailability, poor absorption and rapid breakdown. Although bioavailability and absorption help determine effectiveness, the key lies within its ability to remain free. This free state of curcumin is achieved due to the formula's ability to avoid being rapidly broken down within the body. Because free curcumin retains its “unbroken” form, it is then taken up through the blood stream where it is stable, concentrated, and retains maximum effectiveness for up to 24 hours, making it the most effective, absorbable curcumin available for cognitive health.
What Does It Do?Primary Uses: CurcuMIND is designed to support cognition and protect brain cells against the effects of toxic beta-amyloid proteins. In vitro studies with curcumin and vitamin D3, alone and in combination, have been found to support the clearance of beta-amyloid. In mice, curcumin helped repair nerve function in the brain and positively affected their behaviour. Finally, several studies in healthy humans showed that just 80 mg of Optimized Curcumin improved cognitive function and mood and reduced blood levels of beta-amyloid in just 30 days - a feat that other “bioavailable” curcumins have failed to accomplish.Secondary Uses: CurcuMIND can also provide support for autoimmune conditions and inflammation related to autoimmunity since curcumin and vitamin D work synergistically to modulate immune function.
Who Should Take It?
Up to 9 capsules of CurcuMIND per day will provide powerful support for those suffering from age-related cognitive decline, severe inflammation, auto-immune disorders and supports healthy cellular growth & differentiation.
Take up to 3 capsules three times daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
