Longvida bioenhanced curcumin extract
Curcumin. One of the great extracts with enhanced bioavailability is Longvida from Verdue Sciences. It has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier so it may be the extract of choice for anything brain related. Interesting interview by Nigel Pollard from the Natural Health Science Foundation and Grand Rounds with the CEO of Verdue Sciences.

Book Review: Phytotherapy Desk Reference
Reviewed by Mim Beim
My original copy of Michael Thomsen’s Phytotherapy Desk Reference is herb-stained and dog-eared. So it was with much excitement that I received the latest edition of this little gem.
The book, as with the previous editions, has been designed not as an exhaustive materia medica but rather as a desk reference for the busy herbalist. It contains short, precise descriptions of 236 of the most commonly used herbs in Australia and New Zealand.
