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

Meriva 500-SF helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body. Meriva is the most clinically studied curcumin on the market with 29x greater absorption than ordinary curcumin. NSF Certified for Sport®

Description:

In all forms, Meriva® helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body and provides relief from overuse of muscles and joints and relief from injuries. Used as a food ingredient in Asia for thousands of years, curcumin is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits, including support of joint, liver, GI, and cardiovascular function. Normally, however, curcumin is poorly absorbed in the bloodstream, whether it comes from food or a nutritional supplement. 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 from Meriva than from 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 that is 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 used in Meriva-SF attaches a curcumin extract to a phospholipid, which optimizes the curcumin's absorption. In the case of Meriva 500-SF, the body readily absorbs the curcumin complex, resulting in more curcumin reaching cells for improved benefit. Clinical research shows that Meriva supplementation results in higher plasma concentrations of curcumin from a much smaller amount than with ordinary curcumin.

Meriva 500-SF contains 500 mg of curcumin phytosome complex per capsule.

Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport® product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agonists, and masking agents.

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.
