    Well-absorbed curcumin for relief from occasional joint and muscle soreness

    Meriva-SF is a well-absorbed‚ sustained-released curcumin formula. Meriva® is the most clinically studied curcumin on the market with 29x greater absorption than ordinary curcumin.


    Meriva® helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body. Meriva-SF (sustained release) provides relief from occasional aches‚ joint stiffness‚ and muscle soreness.

    Used in Asia for thousands of years‚ curcumin is a potent antioxidant that offers multiple health benefits‚ including support of joint‚ liver‚ GI‚ eyes‚ and cardiovascular function. Normally‚ however‚ curcumin is poorly absorbed in the bloodstream‚ whether it comes from food or nutritional supplements. 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 for Meriva than with 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 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 utilized in Meriva-SF attaches a curcumin extract to a phospholipid‚ which optimizes the curcumin's absorption. Meriva supplementation results in higher plasma concentrations of curcumin from a much smaller amount than with ordinary curcumin supplementation.

    Meriva-SF (sustained release) contains 250 mg of curcumin phytosome complex per capsule.

INTERACTIONS
Curcumin has been shown to reduce the therapeutic efficacy of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) in animal studies. In vitro research revealed that curcumin decreased camptothecin-induced death of cultured breast cancer cells. Curcumin might also interfere with the absorption and efficacy of the chemotherapy drug irinotecan‚ used to treat colon cancer. The concurrent use of curcumin with these agents should be avoided.

    I have only just started taking this Meriva-SF (Soy Free, Sustained Release) by Thorne Research, as recommended by my NP for arthritis in my right hip. I haven't been on it long enough to give it a good review, but I am hoping this is what helps, as I have tried other supplements with no relief. I prefer a natural remedy over a prescription if I can find one.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I started experiencing painful swollen joints ankle fingers etc. Looking for relief I purchased this Meriva-SF (Soy Free, Sustained Release) by Thorne Research back in 2012. Never took it. As the pain went away. Now 2019 I started to flair up with joint pain again only worse than before and still had the bottle I ordered in 2012. Doubtful it was still potent or would have any affect I was surprised that on its own took my pain from a 10 to a 1. I have also found Charlottes Web Hemp Extract by the Stanley Brothers out of Colorado 43mg also on its own Had the same impact on my Pain and swelling from Rhumitoid Arthritis. I highly recommend these for those who are seeking relief from this dibilitating circumstance. I can only imagine the benifits of a fresh bottle of Meriva Sr can deliver as my current bottle is over 6yrs old. I will be getting the Meriva-SF this time as I hear Soy is bad for men. As it contribute's to unwanted Estrogen a Female hormone.

    Pros

    It's abilities to Fight Swelling/inflammation and significant pain reduction.

    Cons

    I have no dislikes as of this this time. My doctor has prescribe me to take 20mg of Prednisone once a day and also advised me to keep taking the Hemp oil and Curcumin. So it does not interfere with anything that I know of. I also take Flexoplex which is different than the Arthrosamine I purchased along with the Meriva-SR back in 2012. Which I did take and it did work just as good as the however My Blood pressure did spike not sure if it was due to the Arthrosamine or stress back then. I hope this helps those looking to improve your conditions as if it can fight Rhumitoid Arthritis I wouldn't be surprised if it helps you.

    I have Lyme disease, and one of my worst symptoms has been joint pain. I previously tried curcumin and it caused stomach issues. Meriva-SF (Soy Free, Sustained Release) by Thorne Research was recommended by my Lyme doctor, and I have no stomach issues with it. It's also very effective in relieving my joint pain and inflammation. I take one in the morning and one at night.

    Pros

    Works well.

    Cons

    A bit pricey.
