CurcumaSorb provides the patented Meriva® curcumin-phosphatidylcholine complex for enhanced absorption and bioavailability. The proprietary phytosome technology combines curcumin and phosphatidylcholine in a 1:2 ratio promoting resistance to degradation in the digestive tract and efficient absorption across membranes. This produces significantly higher peak plasma concentrations and larger area under concentration-time curves (AUC). In a single-dose pharmacokinetic animal study plasma curcumin levels were 20 times greater with Meriva® than standard curcumin. A preliminary human pharmacokinetic study demonstrated that elevations in plasma curcumin from 450 mg Meriva® were similar to values obtained from 4000 mg of a standard curcumin extract. The efficacy of a low dose was demonstrated in a three-month clinical trial in which 200 mg curcuminoids from Meriva® per day helped relieve joint inflammation and provided significant benefit in joint comfort mobility and quality of life when used in conjunction with conventional treatment.
