About Curcumin Phytosome

Curcumin Phytosome is a Thorne Research formula specifically designed to provide relief from occasional muscle and joint soreness. The product also contributes to a normal inflammatory response throughout the body while also offering 29 times better absorption of its primary ingredient (Meriva curcumin phytosome) than ordinary curcumin.

To date, Meriva is the most clinically studied curcumin on the current market that provides potent support against joint and muscle overuse. At the same time, it helps alleviate injuries. You can choose either the 60-capsule or the 120-capsule bottle, depending on what suits your needs best.

How Curcumin Phytosome Works

In Asia, curcumin has been used for its profound antioxidant properties for thousands of years. No wonder it is much preferred for its health benefits. In detail, curcumin is found to foster the healthy function of not only the cardiovascular system but also the gastrointestinal tract, liver, and joints. The problem with orally taken curcumin (via foods or supplements) is that it is poorly absorbed in the bloodstream. Meriva comes to solve this issue by formulating the most effective curcumin extract, Meriva curcumin phytosome, which offers considerably better absorption (29x) than ordinary curcumin extracts.

Meriva Curcumin – How it is light years away from ordinary curcumin

Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that helps optimize the production of cytokines as a means to maintain the body’s healthy inflammatory response. Meriva contains a total of three highly absorbable curcuminoids. This unique formula makes Meriva’s curcumin superior to its other counterparts. In addition, the fact that the manufacturer has used the proprietary Phytosome technology enables curcumin extract to attach itself to a phospholipid, which, in turn, helps optimize curcumin’s absorption.

But let’s take first things first. A phytosome is a plant extract that attaches itself to a phospholipid. In Meriva 500-SF’s case, this would be sunflower oil. A phospholipid is a fundamental compound found in all human cells that can both be made by the human body and obtained via nutritional supplements and foods.

The overwhelming majority of curcumin supplements only allow the body to absorb a small portion of the curcumin. Consequently, fewer cells are “fed” the nutritional compounds of curcumin. This prevents them from benefiting from all the health-improving qualities related to curcumin intake. Curcumin Phytosome provides the body with a readily absorbable curcumin complex that reaches all cells required, giving them the maximum of their health benefits.

According to clinical research, supplementing with Curcumin Phytosome enables the body to obtain higher plasma curcumin concentrations from significantly smaller amounts than with ordinary curcumin.

In a nutshell, Curcumin Phytosome offers curcumin that is bound in sunflower phospholipids, which makes it even more convenient for sensitive individuals. Plus, each capsule contains 500mg of curcumin-sunflower phospholipid complex, which is considerably higher than other curcumin formulas. Finally, Phytosome technology ensures the most efficient curcumin absorption by the human body, enabling it to gain the maximum of the health qualities it delivers.

Curcumin Phytosome Side Effects

Curcumin is usually not tied to any considerable side effects. Nevertheless, some individuals can experience diarrhea, dizziness, nausea, or stomach upset. In a single report, one person also exhibited a dangerous abnormal heart rhythm. However, that incident was attributed to the excessive intake of curcumin (1500mg twice a day), which is 3-6 times higher than the recommended dosage for Curcumin Phytosome.

Allergies & Interactions

Do NOT take Curcumin Phytosome if you have a history of hypersensitivity to any of the formula compounds. It may trigger an allergy reaction.

Always consult with your doctor before taking a supplement (nutritional or dietary), including Curcumin Phytosome, especially if you are pregnant, lactating, or taking medications.

Speak with your physician before taking the formula if you have a medical condition or undergoing chemotherapy. Curcumin may interfere with the efficacy and the absorption of a specific drug, namely Irinotecan. This is used to treat colon cancer.

You should avoid the concurrent use of curcumin with Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide). Animal studies have shown that curcumin might reduce the therapeutic efficacy of the immune-suppressing drug. In vitro studies have also evidenced that curcumin can reduce the death of cultured breast cancer cells induced by camptothecin.
