Thorne Research Meriva-SR® -- 120 Vegetarian Capsules

Hypoallergenic. Vegetarian Capsules. Meriva® is a unique patented curcumin product. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant flavonoid that offers numerous health benefits including supporting joint health and hepatic GI and cardiovascular function by helping to maintain the body’s normal inflammatory response.*. Whether taken as a supplement or from food curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Meriva curcumin phytosome is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phosphatidylcholine (PC) an essential component of human cells. When taken orally PC is very well absorbed; curcumin can be bound to PC to enhance its absorption too. A recent human study (not yet published) demonstrated 29-times greater bioavailability than ordinary curcumin. Meriva supplementation resulted in higher plasma concentrations of curcumin from a much smaller dose than with ordinary curcumin. In a recent eight-month human trial Meriva was shown to support a healthy inflammatory response.* Individuals experienced improvements in clinical and biochemical end-points associated with joint health.
