Curcumin phytosome. What is it? Where is it from? What are its health benefits?
24 Feb

 What are its health benefits?n used for centuries in Asia because of its myriad health benefits. This is because a primary constituent of turmeric is curcumin, a potent antioxidant that supports a balanced inflammatory response in the body, offering relief from the occasional pain and discomfort associated with the overuse of joints and muscles.*

However, because natural curcumin is difficult for the body to absorb, resulting in the body missing out on its many health benefits, Thorne uses curcumin phytosome, curcumin that is bound to phospholipids to enhance its absorption. 

Thorne's high-quality Meriva® is curcumin with a patented technology that optimizes its absorption. In the phytosome complex, curcumin molecules are bound to phospholipid molecules, which can result in as much as 29-times more curcumin being absorbed than plain curcumin. Meriva is also the most clinically studied curcumin preparation on the market, being the subject of more than 30 clinical trials.
