Choose PureSea® for Cognitive Health

PureSea® unique seaweed ingredients are a natural vegan wholefood source of iodine, an essential nutrient and integral component of the thyroid hormones. Iodine mediates the effects of thyroid on brain development and other functions in the body, including metabolism, nervous system, development in children and healthy skin.*

Demonstrated in independent clinical trials, PureSea® seaweed releases iodine in a sustained way, with longer retention in the body compared to artificial sources (potassium iodide) often used in food supplements.

To achieve an EFSA claim on cognitive health, only 100mg of PureSea® are needed per serving, allowing multiple product concepts and ingredient combinations. And with PureSea® Protect, almost any application is possible due to the proprietary micro-encapsulation of the powder that results in a  white, odourless and highly dispersible powder, with proven targeted nutrient release during digestion.

Longvida®: New Human Clinical Trial on Healthy Neurocognitive Aging

Four years ago, researchers at Swinburne University conducted a study investigating the effects of Longvida® curcumin on cognition and mood in a healthy older population (aged 60-80). After 4 weeks of administration, they found that daily Longvida® (400 mg) supplementation led to significant improvements in cognitive function in as little as one hour. This 2015 "NutraIngredients Research of the Year" winner included measures for memory, attention, fatigue, stress, and mood and prompted researchers to evaluate cognitive impact after long term supplementation with a second study. The follow-up study aimed to determine whether similar effects were evident following 12 weeks of taking Longvida.

 

We are excited to share that the much-awaited results are in; according to Scholey et al., this follow-up study “confirms that Longvida® improves aspects of mood and working memory in a healthy older cohort”. The study is still awaiting publication but initial details can be read in the scientific summary, downloadable here.

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.
