  • 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.

    Love it!

    My inflammation level was really high before taking Meriva-SR by Thorne Research. Now, 7 months later, my levels are in the normal range.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    great for inflammation

    I ordered Meriva-SR by Thorne Research for my mom and she loves the relief it gives her on her inflammation. these work best when you are feeding the body whole foods rather than processed food. i heard about these through dr. amy myers and the elimination diet for autoimmunity. Also want to note that PureFormulas did such an awesome job with my free shipping! it arrived sooner than i expected, so thumbs up!


    Pros

      I liked how helpful it was for my mom's inflammation.

    Cons

      It would be great if it were a little more affordable, but still worth the price!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Helps fight inflammation

    My doctor recommended I get Meriva-SR by Thorne Research to help with arthritis pain. I took all of one bottle, (purchased elsewhere) and decided it was really working for me. I went to re-order but found that the price here with PureFormulas was better - so I ordered 2 bottles.
