Curcumin Phytosome – Sustained Release (formerly Meriva-SF) Details
Thorne’s Curcumin Phytosome, as Meriva®, helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body. Curcumin Phytosome – Sustained Release provides relief from occasional aches, joint stiffness, and muscle soreness.*
Used in Asia for thousands of years, curcumin is a potent antioxidant that offers multiple health benefits, including support of joint, liver, GI, eyes, and cardiovascular function.* Normally, however, curcumin is poorly absorbed in the bloodstream, whether it comes from food or nutritional supplements. Thorne’s Curcumin Phytosome, as Meriva, is the most clinically studied curcumin on the market, is a unique curcumin extract with significantly better absorption than other curcumin extracts.* In fact, a human study demonstrated 29-times greater absorption than with ordinary curcumin.*
Curcumin is an antioxidant flavonoid that helps maintain the body’s normal inflammatory response through optimization of cytokine production.* The superior curcumin absorption is attributable to a unique formula that contains three curcuminoids (95% curcuminoid material) and is based on Indena S.p.A.’s proprietary “phytosome” technology. A phytosome is a plant extract bound to a phospholipid (from sunflower oil). Phospholipids are essential components of all human cells; and although the body makes phospholipids, such as phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine, phospholipids can also be obtained from food or nutritional supplements. When taken orally, phospholipids are very well absorbed. The proprietary phytosome technology utilized in Curcumin Phytosome attaches a curcumin extract to a phospholipid, which optimizes the curcumin’s absorption.* Supplementation results in higher plasma concentrations of curcumin from a much smaller amount than with ordinary curcumin supplementation.*
Turmeric is widely studied for its health-promoting properties. It has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as Ayurvedic medicine, for more than 2,000 years. Curcumin is turmeric’s most active component and provides numerous health benefits, including support for joint function and mobility, liver and gut health, cardiovascular function. Curcumin is also a potent antioxidant.*
