Curcumin is the active component of Turmeric (Curcuma longa) which is known as the traditional spice from India that is used in curry dishes. The principal curcuminoid compound in curcumin has potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties that have been extensively researched for its ability to support colon, joint, cardiovascular and neuronal health.
Oral absorption of curcumin is generally poor due to its low solubility and instability in the intestinal environment. Meriva® combines turmeric extract with phosphatidylcholine from soy lecithin forming a bioavailable turmeric phytosome complex that is significantly better absorbed than regular turmeric extracts. Meriva® phytosome complex greatly increases curcumin stability and enhances oral absorption by over 20-fold.
