Thorne Research Meriva-SF (Sustained Release)®

Curcumin Phytosome Supplement

Provides Potent Antioxidants - 120 Capsules

Thorne Research Meriva-SF® (Sustained Release) is a potent antioxidant supplement that supports the body's normal inflammatory response.

Meriva-SR is a unique, patented, time-release curcumin product. People throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin for centuries. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry), and is a potent antioxidant 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. In conjunction with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, we have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption - phytosome technology. Meriva curcumin phytosome is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts.

Curcumin complexed with phosphatidylcholine for superior bioavailability.

  • For maintenance of the body's normal inflammatory response
  • Provides potent antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity
  • Sustained-release formula allows for an optimal curcumin blood level over time
  • Significantly increased bioavailability from phytosome preparation

Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of human cells. Our bodies can make PC, but we can also get it from food or supplements. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. The scientists at Indena found a way to attach a curcumin extract to PC for superior absorption, resulting in Meriva. When you take Meriva your body absorbs the PC and the attached curcumin, resulting in more curcumin reaching the cells that can benefit from it.

A 2007 single-dose pharmacokinetic animal study demonstrated Meriva's superior bioavailability, compared to ordinary curcumin. The results demonstrated a >20-fold increase in absorption of curcumin from Meriva versus a standard curcumin preparation. In addition, a 2010 three-month clinical trial demonstrated 1,000 mg of Meriva-SF per day helped maintain healthy C-reactive protein levels and promoted healthy joint comfort and mobility. Furthermore, a 2010 randomized, single-blind, crossover human study revealed total curcuminoid bioavailability, as evaluated by the plasma area under the curve (AUC), to be 29-fold higher for Meriva than for the conventional standardized curcumin extract.

Several studies have illustrated curcumin's hepatoprotective effects, leading researchers to suggest its use in protecting the liver from exogenous insults from environmental toxins. Curcumin also has the capacity to increase both the flow and solubility of bile. Curcumin's hepatoprotective effects are due in part to direct free-radical scavenging; but curcumin also enhances the body's natural antioxidant system, which increases glutathione levels, thereby aiding in hepatic detoxification and inhibiting nitrosamine formation.
