Developed by University neuroscientists as an absorption promoting technology, SLCP™, or Solid Lipid Curcumin Particle formulation, protects free curcumin from initial hydrolysis, allowing the uptake of free curcumin and delivering bioefficcious levels into the bloodstream, target tissues, and the brain. SLCP™ is a patented, finely-tuned lipophilic formulation brought together in a gentle, multi-step process. The end product preserves the natural spectrum curcumin from the harsh environment of the stomach, dissolves it at the point of absorption in the GI tract, and delivers the free form (also called intact or native) into the blood stream and target tissues. This technology is exclusively licensed to Verdure Sciences®.
Our patented Solid Lipid Particle (SLP) formulation, was developed by Verdure in collaboration with University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA) neuroscientists Dr. Sally Frautschy, PhD, professor of medicine and neurology, and Dr. Gregory Cole, PhD, professor of medicine and neurology and associate director of the UCLA Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. This absorption process is used in conjunction with several Verdure Science brands, specifically Longvida®. This is a delivery system which improves the stability, solubility, and permeability of certain types of biologically active compounds in the gut after oral consumption.
