  • If you’ve eaten Indian curry‚ then you’ve benefited from one of its predominant ingredients: turmeric. The herb turmeric has been popular all around Asia throughout history for its medicinal benefits‚ as well as for a flavorful spice in recipes. Today‚ turmeric has gained popularity for these uses throughout the rest of the world. Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals‚ harmful molecules that destroy healthy tissues and cells in your body. It may also improve liver function‚ reduces inflammation‚ and help fight bacterial infections. You can get the benefits of turmeric by eating it or taking supplements. Since turmeric isn’t easily absorbed into your bloodstream‚ you have to consume high amounts to maximize its benefits. It may be difficult to do so if you don’t like spicy foods‚ so a supplement like Thorne Research’s Meriva-500 may be a solution.

    Meriva-500 is manufactured with a special process that makes turmeric more readily absorbable by your body. Curcumin (the active compound in turmeric) is attached to phosphatidylcholine (PC)‚ an essential component of human cells; the combination of curcumin and PC is absorbed far more easily than curcumin alone. The active ingredient in Meriva-500 is curcumin phytosome.

    One bottle of Meriva-500 contains 120 vegetarian capsules‚ and should last for one to two months when taken at the recommended dosage of one to two capsules twice daily. Ask your healthcare provider before taking this supplement if you’re pregnant. Don’t take this supplement if you’re taking the chemotherapy drugs cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) or irinotecan.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Meriva-500 120 Vegetarian Capsules by Th

    I am taking Meriva Curcumin for arthritis and also in conjunction with Celgenes Revlimid 10mg daily for relapsed Multiple Myeloma. I take 2gs of Meriva daily. Blood tests for the Myeloma have showed a remarkable decrease in the marker Free Light Chains by 33% in the space of a month and a half. The arthritis is still there but steadily improving. I have no idea of Curcumins actual effect in either case. There hasnt been much concrete scientific evidence as to its effectiveness. The Pharmaceutical Industry doesnt stand to profit much from such a commonly available substance so theres no wonder not much has been done to test it. As to whether or not Meriva is more bioavailable due to phytosome there again the evidence really isnt there. But I use it anyway because of the proven results with curcumin on tumor growth in vitro and I have seen hopeful results in my own case.


    Pros

      Positive results.

    Cons

      Not much in the way of concrete evidence regarding its effectiveness or bioavailability

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Not sure.

    Can't seem to notice a benefit.Meriva by Thorne Research is too expensive for that. I don't think it is the pills. I think that curcumin works great for some and not for others (depending on TH1 or TH2 dominance)

    Meriva -500 is a very potent product! It helps me tremendously with achy muscles and joints from fibromyalgia and arthritis and is much more effective than turmeric alone. Its a powerful anti-inflammatory so its great to take for muscle strains and injuries. I recommend it all the time....GREAT product!

    Great for my son!

    My son is autistic and Meriva -500 helps with inflammation in his brain. Our pediatrician recommended Meriva -500. We have used Meriva -500 for over five years. You need to start slow and as you increase the amount your child will be able to tolerate.

    what is the best way to take this for best absorption? I've read curcumin should be taken with fat, I've also read it's best absorbed with black pepper. The bottle doesn't say. thanks
