Curcumin Phytosome - Meriva® by Doctor's Best
The curcumin included in these capsules in phytosome form with Meriva®, derives from turmeric and consists of a strong combination of three types of curcuminoids: curcumin, bisdemethoxy curcumin and demethoxy curcumin. Curcuma, or turmeric, has numerous health-promoting properties. The product benefits the nervous system, supports the immune system, benefits eyesight, as well as the heart and blood vessels.
Phytosome form for optimal absorption
As is well known, the curcuminoids in many turmeric capsules are not properly absorbed into the body. The patented phytosome technology in this product ensures that the curcuminoids have a very high bioavailability. Owing to this technology, each curcumin molecule is bound to one or more phosphatidylcholine molecules. This creates molecular complexes called phytosomes. Meriva® phytosomes are less likely to break down and they mix well with moisture, ensuring they are well absorbed when taken orally. The phosphatidylcholine molecules form a type of transport that protects the curcumin.

Hormetic effects of turmeric
The unique combination of curcuminoids contributes to the maintenance of healthy cells and tissues and protects against free radicals. Free radicals can cause oxidative stress in the body. Antioxidants are beneficial in protecting against these free radicals. Turmeric not only contains antioxidants. What is less known is that curcuminoids are also health-promoting stressors (“hormetic” stimuli) with hormetic effects.
A hormetic effect (“hormesis”) occurs when the body is temporarily exposed to something that causes stress, such as calorie restriction, exposure to heat or cold, and fasting. Substances can also have a hormetic effect only at a certain dose. After the hormetic stimulus, the body becomes more resilient. Antioxidants with hormetic effects stimulate the body's own (endogenous) antioxidants to become extra active.
Diverse pleiotropic, protective effects
The use of turmeric (curcuma) supplementation has been extensively studied. Turmeric is without doubt one of the most interesting herbs in the world of biochemistry. With a multitude of molecular targets in the body, turmeric is a true pleiotropic food supplement: a substance with multiple effects on multiple body systems and modes of action.
Widely used in Asia for medical applications
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is also known as, more specifically, Indian turmeric. It belongs to the 'ginger family' and grows in South and Southwest Asia. Turmeric plays an important role in the cuisines of various Asian countries. It is packed with good vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D, E and the minerals calcium, magnesium and iron. Turmeric extract has been used in India and China for centuries to tackle various diseases.
