Meriva Is A Powerful, Natural Anti-Inflammatory

Meriva Is A Powerful, Natural Anti-Inflammatory


Meriva contains the most highly available extract form of the herb turmeric - a potent natural anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and recovery nutrient.

Meriva has been shown to be absorbed 29 times greater than regular curcumin (the main extract of turmeric).   Like with all supplements, making sure what you’re taking can actually be utilized by your body is very important.

BEST USES FOR MERIVA:

  • Fighting inflammation from training

  • Muscle tear recovery 

  • Tendonitis, bursitis

  • Stiffness and soreness

  • Antioxidant support for high mileage athletes

  • Liver protection

  • Joint, muscle, eye, GI tract, prostate and nerve health support

HERE'S HOW MERIVA WORKS:  

Best Curcumin Meriva

Meriva contains curcumin, an extract of the herb turmeric.  While curcumin has powerful effects, it’s also very poorly absorbed by the body and therefore not well utilized.  Initially, curcumin supplements were combined with black pepper (piperine) to enhance absorption.

However, modern technology combines curcumin with sunflower oil creating a much, much greater absorbed curcumin than the standard formulation.  Meriva contains 95% curcuminoids and is bound to phospholipids (plant-derived fats) from sunflower oil creating it’s incredibly enhanced absorption. 

Curcumin can limit inflammation throughout the body, especially muscle, joint and generalized aches and pains. It’s also a powerful antioxidant and has been shown to benefit the liver, GI tract, cardiovascular system and joints.  It does this by altering how the body produces its inflammatory chemicals, known as cytokines.

Of special interest is the use of curcumin (Meriva) in active and athletic people - it works well to limit exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, thereby enhancing recovery and performance.  Because of the relatively few side effects of curcumin, it can be safely used and makes an ideal replacement for the widespread use of non-steroidal anti-anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, which has long been a staple of athletes, despite its numerous side effects. 

If you’re looking for an effective anti-inflammatory and want to avoid the side effects of NSAIDs, you’ll definitely want to try Meriva!
