Why would I use curcumin?
Curcumin is an excellent natural substance for reducing inflammation. Inflammation is a common occurrence in the modern world and causes a host of modern diseases. For example, arthritis and joint pain are caused by inflammation, as well as diabetes, premature aging, poor immune system and inflexible skin. Curcumin is undoubtedly one of the most useful and effective dietary supplements on the market in general. Learn more about the positive effects of curcumin in this article.
Meriva is a special technology of phytosomes based on a bio-mimmetic concept.
Its safety and efficiency has already been established in over 30 studies with over 2000 participants, which puts it among the most studied dietary supplements in general.
The biggest problem of curcumin is that it is very poorly absorbed so curcumin Phytosome is designed to address this issue with a special, phytosomal method of absorption and delivery into cells. The tying of curcumin to the phospholipid phosphatidylcholine improves its absorption (liposomal form), as it enables curcumin to be absorbed through the lymphatic system (like fat) and not through the portal system. In this way, absorption is easier because it is a simple passive diffusion into the lymph and does not require an active transport mechanism and is does not have to go through the first pass liver metabolism. In this way, absorption and delivery to cells is greatly increased.
Additionally Meriva contains all three curcuminoids from turmeric:
Curcuminoids in turmeric
Often the question arises why not use a little more turmeric instead of capsules. In practical terms, this is very difficult to implement.
The effective dosage is 1g curcuminoids daily.
1 heaping tablespoon of turmeric powder contains 200mg curcuminoids, which means that each day you would have to consume at least 5 tablespoons of turmeric for an effective dose. And this while neglecting the fact that absorption of kurkuminoidov from natural turmeric is very poor.
