According to the Now Foods CurcuBrain reviews posted by customers, this supplement was an absolute game-changer.
Many people report this having a profound positive impact on their joint health and pain-reducing effect. Others praise it for also improving mood and energy levels. Whereas others more are thrilled with its neuroprotective capabilities. It has also helped with sleep, digestive, brain health, and more.
So, in this Now Foods CurcuBrain review, it will be about cutting it wide open and seeing whether it truly has what it takes.
Hence, the idea is to be no extension of the manufacturer’s marketing or other similar nonsense. This is all going to be about what I feel is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And we’ll do that by assessing marketing, ingredients, side effects (additives), customer feedback, and pricing. We’ll do it the truth-seeking way.
Marketing | CurcuBrain For Cognitive Support, Immune Stuff & More
According to the manufacturer, the Now Foods CurcuBrain is a supplement bringing to the table a patented version of Curcumin which has its bioavailability significantly improved. Hence, it has a lot more to offer than just our regular Curcumin. Furthermore, the supplement has also gathered some awards along the way.
The product page for it I like a lot. I mean, it basically doesn’t do any marketing. And even about those awards earned, it’s very subtle.
And that’s extremely unlike products like the BioTrust Ageless Turmeric (review) or Seven Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin (review). Both of which just wreaks of marketing. Discounts in bulk, money-back guarantees, even free e-books, and more.
For benefits, the Now Foods CurcuBrain leads with cognitive (brain) support. But that’s a very narrow way to look at it. So, it also promises an improved immune system and healthy neuronal tissues.
As for the free-of claims, it’s Non-GMO. Plus, the product is also Kosher and Halal certified, and even UL certified. It’s also Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Vegan.
Overall, from the product page alone, the supplement of this review does feel like a great product. But is it genuinely the case?
Ingredients | Longvida Is Definitely One Of The Best Ways To Do It
At this point, I think that it’s kind of universally known that raw Turmeric has very poor absorbability. But patented formulations used in supplements like the Solgar Curcumin (review) and Kyolic Curcumin (review) have changed that. And the CurcuBrain of Now Foods offers that too.
Longvida is a patented Curcumin formulation created of primarily 20-30% Curcuminoids, Soy Lecithin (purified phospholipids), Docosahexaenoic Acid, Vegetable Stearic Acid, and Ascorbyl esters. It has an improved, calculated, relative bioavailability of 100-fold [R, R].
That puts it right after NovaSOL with 185-fold bioavailability and CurcuWIN with 136-fold bioavailability (all bioavailabilities are recalculated for easier cross-formulation comparison). Meaning, it’s one of the most powerful Curcumin formulations out there [R, R, R].
But a unique aspect of the Longvida is that it also helps brain health in a way of improving working memory, enhancing overall mood, and offering more energy with lower mental and physical fatigue levels. I mean, Curcumin inherently also aids brain health. However, with Longvida, the effects seem to be more profound [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Plus, we won’t be leaving out any of the other Curcuminoids-related benefits like pain healing, improved detoxification, augmented anti-aging, and so many more. Plus, 400 milligrams of the stuff seems to be the effective dosage to make all that happen since it’s what Longvida-specific studies used [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
As for third-party testing, as far as I’m aware, Now Foods doesn’t have that. That being said, it probably has one of the best in-house testing approaches there is. And it’s just an extremely reliable brand overall. So, in this particular case, I wouldn’t consider not having third-party testing a flaw [R, R].
Side Effects | To Review Additives, Now Foods CurcuBrain Is Dope
Side effects are the product of additives. But additives are kind of a tricky thing. Because it may seem that everything that is allowed to be put into food or supplements is fine to be consuming. But the reality is much graver than that.
I mean, pretty much anything that doesn’t make people drop dead immediately gets approved by the so-called health agencies. This is why we can easily find additives like Potassium Sorbate in supplements like Leefy Organics (review) despite research showing that it might damage DNA and lead to chronic illnesses [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, how is this Now Foods CurcuBrain fine in the side effect regard?
Well, it’s actually a great one. It’s built with Cellulose, Rice Flour, Stearic Acid, Magnesium Stearate, and Silica.
Of these, Cellulose and Silica are stuff that we can also find in nature. I mean, the former is what most plant structures are made of. Whereas Silica is basically sand. And we can eat tons of it without any health concern [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Then, we’ve got Rice Flour which is basically the Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, healthy alternative to either Corn-Flour or Wheat Flour. I mean, it’s just such a better choice than either of those two [R, R, R, R, R].
And so, many people falsely believe that Stearic Acid promotes cancer.
Many random bloggers say that. We encounter some doctors that claim that, too. And then, at the end of the spectrum, there are even supplement manufacturers that advertise not using it as an advantage of some kind.
Personally, I’ve spent 10+ hours researching this, and I have to agree with the high-profile doctors that it’s a safe one. It all stems from a huge misunderstanding of the available research. Moreover, there are tons of Stearic Acid in mother’s milk; more than we could ever have through supplements [R, R, R, R, R].
But we don’t see babies randomly getting cancer. I mean, according to what those bloggers and other ignorant people, we should be. Clearly, that’s not the case.
Reviews | Only About 1 In 20 People Aren’t Happy With It
When it comes to real Now Foods CurcuBrain reviews left by customers, we aren’t really offered any on its product page. And while some may see that as a flaw. It’s actually better not to have them.
This is because product pages seem to be heavily biased when it comes to honest feedback anyway. I mean, the Bio Schwartz Turmeric Curcumin (review) and the Puritan’s Pride Turmeric Curcumin (review) are just great examples of that.
I mean, product pages for these supplements promise like 99% success rate or close to that. But the reality is never that ecstatic.
So, I look at everything I could find as far as the customer reviews go. And mostly all feedback is coming from either iHerb or Amazon. But it can be found also by other major platforms or supplement retailers like eBay, e-Vitamins, LuckyVitamin, and others.
So, in total, I managed to find 1,210 Now Foods CurcuBrain reviews. Of these, 1,144 were positive and 66 were negative. In other words, to do the math, that’s a global success rate of 94.5%. Which is really good.
On that note, there were certainly a ton of people who swear by it. But what about those that don’t?
Well, most reported that they didn’t experience any benefits whatsoever after a bottle. But I would argue that we need at least two bottles to be sure.
I mean, Turmeric Curcumin is a tricky herb because its benefits can become noticeable as many as eight weeks after daily consumption of the thing. Given that there are 50 capsules per container, that does fall a bit short. Thus, I would speculate that these people either weren’t consistent or didn’t stick with it long enough [R].
But there were also some select few people who probably encountered some allergic reactions. The most prominent category in this regard felt like the notion of digestive distress.
Pricing | It’s Very High Value & Very Affordable Compared To Rivals
Going through the customer-left negative Now Foods CurcuBrain reviews, I didn’t really find anyone who complained about the price. I mean, sure, there were people saying that it’s a waste of money but still, that’s kind of expected if they didn’t feel any benefit.
Either way, it would be very useful to assess what the pricing is objectively like. Hence, I did some math.
So, per container of this Now Foods, we’re getting 50 capsules. The container typically costs $21.06. In other words, that’s 42.1 cents for every 400 milligrams of Longvida. And that’s an extreme price for Longvida.
I mean, if we look at something like the Protocol for Life Balance Cogumin SLCP or Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) CurcuViva it’s an insane difference. I mean, the former costs 88.0 cents whereas the latter is 46.6 cents.
Thus, with the Protocol for Life Balance, it’s just overpriced. Whereas with the AOR, the price is fine. But it does use some very nasty additives. Hence, I just wouldn’t go for it. And these two are basically the best alternatives for Longvida. For others, it only gets worse.

Ranking | Where Does This Turmeric Curcumin Rank (In 2022)?
Overall | This Is A Supplement I Would Simply Go & Buy
There is one thing that Now Foods really excels at. And that’s offering great quality supplements for very fair prices. And the CurcuBrain is kind of a prime example of that. I mean, there’s essentially nothing that I would consider a real flaw with it.
Whereas for positives, we have many.
The first and obvious one is that it uses a very capable and well-researched Curcumin formulation. And then, it has also great additives. And it’s also Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Vegan. Great success rates.
And the pricing aspect is really insane. I mean, if we want Longvida, there basically are no alternatives at this price range. And while we didn’t really go in detail to compare it to other formulations, do know that it measures up really well.
Hence, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I would propose to just go ahead and buy it. Furthermore, I think it’s easily one of the best Turmeric Curcumin supplements out there. Plus, the added more profound benefits on brain health I think many will find captivating. And it’s a great deal.
I mean, I’ve even gotten some containers to try this myself when my current container of NutriCology CurcuWIN (full review) runs out.
