Well-absorbed curcumin for relief from occasional joint and muscle soreness* Meriva 500-SF helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body.* Meriva is the most clinically studied curcumin on the market with 29x greater absorption than ordinary curcumin.*
In all forms, Meriva® helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body and provides relief from overuse of muscles and joints and relief from injuries.* Used as a food ingredient in Asia for thousands of years, curcumin is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits, including support of joint, liver, GI, and cardiovascular function.* Normally, however, curcumin is poorly absorbed in the bloodstream, whether it comes from food or a nutritional supplement. Meriva curcumin phytosome, 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 from Meriva than from ordinary curcumin.*
Curcumin is an antioxidant flavonoid that helps maintain the body's normal inflammatory response through optimization of cytokine production.* Meriva's 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 that is bound to a phospholipid (from sunflower oil in the case of Meriva-SF). 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 used in Meriva-SF attaches a curcumin extract to a phospholipid, which optimizes the curcumin's absorption.* In the case of Meriva 500-SF, the body readily absorbs the curcumin complex, resulting in more curcumin reaching cells for improved benefit.* Clinical research shows that Meriva supplementation results in higher plasma concentrations of curcumin from a much smaller amount than with ordinary curcumin.*
Meriva 500-SF contains 500 mg of curcumin phytosome complex per capsule.

I've struggled with digestive issues most of my life and have tried many different bitters over the years. These are among the best I've found! They're gentle but effective, and they taste good. Highly recommended!
Wonderful effective cream. A tub please rather than tube.
This product was referred to me by a friend awaiting hip replacement surgery and I have been so thankful. It gives relief from RA inflammation pain when I apply at night (RA pain thank you for and inflammation increases over night) and have also used for my husband for this body pain. I have previously tried traumeel with no help at all. The only downside is the tubes are so small! I do get the large tube but would prefer a tub to be able to use every drop of the cream rather than wasting what can’t be squeezed out of the tube
