  • 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.

    Easy to take

    My naturopath recommended Merica-SR by Thorne Research as he says that it has the best absorption rate. The pills are easy to swallow and are easy on the stomach.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Not sure yet

    I've been taking 5-6 Meriva-SR capsules by Thorne Research a day for about 5 weeks now as prescribed by Chiropractor for a pinched nerve. So far I do not seem to have much results. I have a little less tingling and numbness in my hands/fingers but think my problem is more than what Meriva can handle. My Chiro swears by the anti-inflammatory process Meriva gives but I cant say it works - I can't say it doesn't either! Maybe I need to give it more time.


    Pros

      No side effects - all natural.

    Cons

      You have to take a lot of capsules.

    It really works!!

    I've got a lot of problems with bursitis and a herniated disk in my lower back and I've been on Celebrex etc for many years. Since discovering Meriva-SR by Thorne Research 2 years ago I'm completely off the prescription anti-inflammatories and doing fine! It not only works its actually good for you how can you beat that?


    Pros

      It does as much as Celebrex to reduce bursitis and other joint pains and its good for you.

    Cons

      Can't think of any.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Meriva-SR as an Anti-inflammatory

    Meriva-SR arrived quickly. I had purchased it elsewhere before and have been taking it for months. Although I can't say for sure that the curcumin is responsible since taking it I have had less joint pain. My friends with more supplement knowledge than I recommended Meriva-SR by Thorne Research. Even my doctor :-) had positive things to say about curcumin (in general) as an anti-inflammatory. He said that it is well researched and that some people use it for IBS. I have read that a study showed that curcumin may also be good for bone health.


    Pros

      Good price (sale) fast shipping. Supposed to be more bioavailable than other curcumin products.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

  • Q Pilar on 1/04/2016

    Hi, the only difference between Meriva 500 and SR is that SR is slow release, is that right? I'm trying to decide which one to get- why would someone want the slow release instead? thanks

    A
    • PureFormulas on 1/06/2016

      Thank you for reaching out to us, Pilar. The Meriva-500 has 1000 mg per 2 capsule serving. The Meriva-SR has 500 mg per 2 capsule serving. The slow release formula releases curcumin slowly throughout the day to maintain optimal blood levels over time. 

  • Q Marianne Kleminski on 5/10/2015

    What is the difference between the SR and the regular. I cannot see anything different.

    A
    • PureFormulas on 5/12/2015

      Marianne, it is the same formula but SR is for Slow Release :)
