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.
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 and curcumin can be bound to PC to enhance its absorption.
A human study 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.
