What is Swanson Ultra Turmeric Phytosome with Meriva?

Turmeric is a strange spice. It is probably better known for its bright colouring than it is for its slightly bitter flavour. And you'd actually be forgiven for that, especially when we consider it is the colouration that it offers food for which it is most famous. The colour in question sits somewhere between ochre and mustard and it is most notoriously synonymous with curries.

The interesting thing is that it is actually that very colouring agent which is the active antioxidant which renders Turmeric such a powerful herbal remedy. It is called Curcumin and it comes from the Rhizome, or root, of the plant. From the same family as Ginger, the Rhizome actually bears striking similarities in appearance to its tangy cousin.

Meriva(R) is Indena's patented form of Curcumin delivery. By combining Curcumin and soy lecithin at a 1:2 weight ratio, as well as two parts microcrystalline cellulose, they have been able to augment its overall flowability. Even though the actual content of Curcumin in Meriva(R) stands at just 20%, it still offers a higher bioavailability than that of straight Curcumin from Turmeric.

Curcumin, as a dietary phenolic, is only sparingly soluble oil and water so it is not as easily ingested as we might hope. Meriva utilises its polar groups to allow it to interact via hydrogen bondings and the polar heads of phospholipids (soy lecithins) to better complex with ordinarily poorly soluble phenolics, including - of course - Curcumin.

What is Swanson Ultra Turmeric Phytosome with Meriva used for?

Turmeric has taken a long and bloodsoaked journey to our Western shores from its home in the East and the reason for that lies in its remarkable popularity both here and abroad. Harvested for over 5000 years in its homeland then eventually exported by Arab traders as early as the 13th Century, Turmeric has been used as a spice and as a medicine for longer than most of us could have imagined.

Studies have shown that this simple colouring agent offers a unique form of stimulation to the gallbladder (the part of the body which produces bile). That bile is one of the main chemicals our bodies use to digest food after it has left our mouths.

As well as being a potent digestive aid, Swanson Ultra Turmeric Phytosome with Meriva is also a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. By maintaining healthy levels of ‘good' cholesterol, it can help keep away dangerous levels of Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL cholesterol). A buildup of LDL in your arteries can mean a buildup of plaque, slowing the passage of blood in and out of the heart. This is known as Atherosclerosis and it contributes towards the chance of you having a stroke or a heart attack.

  • Aids digestive process
  • Can ease gas and bloating
  • Helps to maintain a cholesterol balance
  • May help with dyspepsia
  • Incredibly high bioavailability compared to regular Turmeric or Curcumin.
