  • Meriva-SR is one of the only patented time-release curcumin products available on the market – and it is brought to you exclusively from Thorne Research. For centuries‚ people throughout Asia have benefited from the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin; the active ingredient in Meriva-SR. Curcumin is the yellowish-orange pigment in turmeric (and the main flavor in curry powder). It is a powerful antioxidant that offers many health benefits‚ such as support for your joints and cardiovascular system.

    Thorne’s Meriva-SR can help to:

    • Reduce inflammation‚ which can help maintain your body’s natural immune response
    • Provide potent antioxidant activity and liver protection
    • Release curcumin slowly throughout the day to maintain optimal blood levels over time
    • Increase absorption through its use of Phytosomes

    Benefits of Curcumin

    Many studies have tested and proven the hepatoprotective effects of curcumin‚ which has lead to suggestions that it can protect the liver from external insults‚ whether it be from excessive acetaminophen use or carbon tetrachloride.

    Curcumin can also increase the flow and solubility of bile‚ allowing the liver to function better. Curcumin works wonders on the liver partially because of its free-radical scavenging abilities; but it also helps to enhance the body’s natural antioxidant system. This increases glutathione levels‚ which aids in detoxifying the liver.

    What Makes Thorne Research’s Meriva-SR Unique?

    Although curcumin has numerous healing and antioxidant effects‚ without the proper encapsulation‚ it cannot be absorbed well into the bloodstream. Thorne Research has partnered with scientists at Indena to use Phytosome technology to help increase absorption. This way‚ your body gets the most from the curcumin in each Meriva-SR tablet. Phytosomes are made up of phospholipids that help carry the curcumin to your intestine‚ making sure it does not dissolve earlier in the digestive process. Once it reaches your intestines‚ the polyphenol portion of the Phytosome allows digestion to occur. This allows the curcumin to reach the cells that can most benefit from its healing capabilities.

    Meriva-SR has also been the subject various research studies to determine how well it is absorbed by the body. In 2007‚ the Cancer‚ Chemotherapy and Pharmacology journal published a study that demonstrated Meriva’s superior bioavailability compared to ordinary curcumin (without the use of Phytosome technology). The study showed a significant increase in blood plasma concentration – as much as five times higher with Meriva than with ordinary curcumin. This study also proved that liver levels of curcumin were also higher with Meriva.

    Another study (yet to be published) shows an even greater effect of Meriva vs. ordinary curcumin. This study tested smaller doses of Meriva against higher doses of ordinary curcumin and found that the absorption of Meriva in small doses was even greater than the absorption of ordinary curcumin in much larger doses.

    Improves your A1C

    Through the research I have done on the active ingredient, curcumin has the ability to improve your A1C. I have been taking Meriva-SR by Thorne Research for about six months and my numbers have greatly improved. I was introduced to Meriva-SR by a Naturopathic Doctor.

    Pros

      Product performed beyond expectations.

    Cons

      Have not found one yet.

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!

    MERIVA-SR was suggested to my mom by her primary care doctor on a regular check up visit. She suffers from severe arthritis symptoms & there arent many medications she can take w/o side effects making her feel worse. We both decided to try this product as I have been experiencing the painful symptoms of arthritis due to inflamation. Our order was received within a few days & we began taking it immediately. We BOTH experienced dramatic relief within 3 days! Since my husband noticed the obvious improvements in both of us he asked me to order a bottle for him! (Hes a skeptic & really surprised me with his request!). After just a few days of starting Meriva-SR he also noticed a huge difference in being able to move more freely & get up without limping or being sore. Weve ALL 3 continued to use this product since March of 2014 & wont let ourselves run out! By the way my mom is 89 I am 60 and a Live-in Caregiver for her & my husband is 62. The beauty of this all natural beneficial product is that we have experienced NO side effects & we feel so much better. Ive recommended MERIVA-SR to everyone I can think of who has problems with Arthritis symptoms & will continue to do so. One doesnt realize just how much the daily aches & pains associated with such a disease can affect your whole quality of life until you finally feel relief & realize how GOOD it is to have such a burden lifted from you!

    Pros

      Easy to order & quick delivery! Inexpensive considering its tremendous benefits! Quick results with no side effects!

    Cons

      Just wish wed have discovered this sooner!

    A+ Product

    My primary doctor recommended this product approximately 2-3 years ago. I trust her because she has never steered me wrong; just the opposite she has helped me when no one else could. She researches all the products she recommends to her patients.

    It works to reduce inflammation

    I have been taking this product for several years. It was recommended by a Dr. as being the most pure and highly concentrated source of curcumin for the express purpose of reducing inflammation in my body caused by systemic lupus. It works people. I wouldnt be without it. Pure Formulas usually has the best price and I always search the internet before ordering. They are reliable and provide excellent service.

    Meriva-SR 120 Vegetarian Capsules

    I used to get these from my doctor but moved a couple of states away. I was pleased to find this same thing at Pure Formulas. They help greatly with pain in my knees due to mild osteoarthritis. I like the prices at Pure Formulas and also the Rewards Program. And my orders always come quickly.

    Top effectiveness and value

    IT WORKS! I had a bad tendon injury on my forearm after excessive chainsaw use a disaster for me as a professional landscaper. I could not use my arm couldnt pick up anything which means I could work. My pharmacist suggested it to reduce my healing time and said he uses it himself. Apparently it is the best turmeric formulation for the body to utilize which of course means its the BEST VALUE! The swelling went down quickly and within 2 weeks I was able to begin carefully working again. I also noticed that I wasnt having any back of knee pain after working which I used to experience.

    Pros

      Not expensive Works quickly and effectively on inflamation and injury Best value since you body can fully utilize it

    Cons

      Nada!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
