Turmeric root has been in use as a potent plant medicine in both China and India for thousands of years and is also the primary ingredient of curry powder. Curcumin is the active principle of the Turmeric root. In recent years scientific research has validated many of its benefits, including, but not limited to the following: Anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, joint health, improvement of circulation and micro-circulation, detoxification (especially liver) increase of bile production, anti-carcinogenic, anti-oxidant. Meriva is specially formulated for maximum absorption, far surpassing the assimilability of any other curcumin products currently available. The patent-pending, curcumin extract in a time-release matrix of phosphotidylcholine causes Meriva to be released slowly into the intestines, ensuring controlled absorption into the bloodstream. Non-time release products may absorb quickly – but in order to keep curcumin blood levels in the system consistent, more frequent dosing is required. Meriva-SR is time release for convenient twice-daily supplementation.
