Nutra-Life Turmeric MERIVA® Curcumin 550 contains the scientifically researched and patented form of curcumin. It provides up to 29x better absorption and bioavailability than standard curcumin to help maintain healthy joints and supports digestion and gastro-intestinal health.
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 widely studied for its potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits, including supporting joint health and cardiovascular function, and helping to maintain the body's normal inflammatory response. In one clinical research, turmeric worked about as well as ibuprofen (a anti-inflammatory medicine) for reducing pain.
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. Our bodies can make PC, but we can also get it from food or supplements. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. When you take MERIVA® curcumin your body absorbs the PC and the attached curcumin, resulting in more curcumin reaching the cells that can benefit from it.
A 2007 study published in the journal, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, demonstrated MERIVA® curcumin's superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin. Liver levels of curcumin were also higher with MERIVA® curcumin supplementation. A human study demonstrated 29-times greater bioavailability. In both studies, MERIVA® curcumin 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® curcumin was shown to support a healthy inflammatory response. Individuals experienced improvements in clinical and biochemical end-points associated with joint health.
Several studies have illustrated curcumin's liver protective 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 liver protective 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.
