This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

Blackmores Brain Active contains Longvida, an optimised form of curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric). Longvida[R] is based on over 10 years research by neuroscientists at University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA). It may support alertness and working memory (part of short-term memory) and may help reduce mental fatigue.

Background information
Back in the late 1990s, neuroscientists at UCLA embarked on a mission to fi nd natural compounds that had potential to support brain health. One of the ingredients they came across was turmeric and more importantly, its active constituent, curcumin. They saw that turmeric had an extensive history of use in humans, a low toxicity profile and possessed a diverse range of properties that were associated with general health and the brain, including anti-infl ammatory and antioxidant activity.

Bioavailability of curcumin
Unformulated (regular) curcumin has poor oral bioavailability in humans. Using advanced SLCP technology, Longvida[R] encases the curcumin particle inside an optimised matrix layer. This helps to "protect the curcumin from the harsh environment in the stomach and allows it to dissolve at the optimal point of absorption in the gastrointestinal tract", for superior bioavailability.

Curcumin in the brain
Curcumin possesses antioxidant activity and turmeric extracts/ powders are well known for their anti-infl ammatory activity. The brain contains a high percentage of neurons and fatty acids, including the omega-3 fatty acid DHA. DHA is susceptible to free radical damage. Although the mechanisms are not completely understood, excessive inflammation and oxidative stress both appear to impact the brain.
A 4-week trial in healthy older adults taking one capsule containing 400 mg Longvida[R] daily for 30 days helped to modify markers in the body associated with stress, antioxidant activity and brain health/ageing.
