Turmeric 500 uses a patented version of curcumin called Meriva® bioavailable curcumin. This patented ingredient is a form of turmeric where the curcumin has been complexed with lecithin, a non-GMO soy compound, to create a unique phospholipid complex. Because phospholipids are both lipophilic and hydrophilic, Meriva is far more easily absorbed and utilized by the body than ordinary curcumin. Curcumin supports musculoskeletal, neurologic, and cardiovascular structure and function. Turmeric has rich use history and strong, emerging clinical evidence supporting mood balance and healthy inflammation.
