The Indian spice, turmeric, is the source of a chemical compound known as curcumin. Curcumin contains substances called curcuminoids, which show remarkable effects on the health of the entire body. Curcuminoids exert a powerful anti-inflammatory effect on the body by regulating the chemical messengers that give rise to inflammation. Since inflammation is the root of most diseases, including heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, it is easy to understand why this common spice is being hailed as a super nutrient. Indeed, with almost 4000 pre-clinical investigations, curcumin is one of the best studied natural products of the whole biomedical literature. As a result, curcumin has emerged as a master switch of addressing the natural inflammation response function, with both a direct and a genomic activity on relevant enzymes, transcription factors and cytokines.
Meriva is a patented delivery form of curcumin. Curcumin and soy lecithin are formulated in a 1:2 weight ratio, with an overall content of curcumin in the final product of around 20%. The overall increase of curcuminoid absorption from Meriva compared to commercial curcumin was 29-fold! The improved absorption, and possibly also a better plasma curcuminoid profile, might underline the clinical efficacy of Meriva at doses significantly lower than unformulated curcuminoid mixtures.
