Meriva® Curcumin 500

Meriva® is clinically proven curcumin with 29X better absorption than ordinary turmeric curcumin supplements. Multiple clinical studies show that the curcumin in Physician's Choice Meriva® can provide significant joint support & mobility.* 

With over 30 clinical studies on over 2000 people, Meriva’s Curcumin benefits have been proven and tested for efficacy and safety.

Physician's Choice Meriva® is a soy free, non-gmo Meriva® curcumin with delayed release technology in 120 veggie capsules. 

Bone & Joint Health

In a study of 50 individuals affected by bone health challenges[2], symptoms were evaluated by the WOMAC score; mobility was studied by walking performance on the treadmill and the overall inflammatory response function was assessed by measurements of C-reactive protein plasma concentration.

The treadmill performance (10% inclination, 3 Km/h speed) showed an improvement of 201% of the initial walked distance at two months.

These results were further confirmed In a second larger and longer study,[3] over (8 months), with 100 participants taking 1gram of Meriva daily. 

The results showed that the Meriva® group enjoyed a significant reduction in all primary clinical endpoints, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities (WOMAC) score decreased from 80.6 to 33.2, and the Karnofsky Performance Scale improved from 73.3 to 92.2.

Muscle Aches & Soreness

In another study, 20 healthy male participants were compared against a placebo. The group was randomized to take one gram of Meriva twice daily or a placebo for 48 hours prior to and 24 hours following a downhill running test. 

Subjects in the Meriva group reported significantly less thigh soreness; significantly less muscle damage was also observed on MRI in the Meriva group.*3

29x Better Absorption 

Physician's Choice Meriva is made with a patented soy free NON-GMO sunflower lecithin and premium curcumin from the turmeric root.


Meriva improves absorption through a patented process of bonding the curcumin extract with phospholipids.

Physician’s Choice Meriva-SF contains an advanced 95% standardized turmeric curcumin formula. In one study, when randomly assigned to receive curcumin for 2 weeks, subjects noticed improvements in joint inflammation and mobility [1]. One large systematic review analyzed the use of curcumin and found extensive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin. In a Phase 1 human trial, those taking upwards of 8000 mg of curcumin for 3 months exhibited no toxic side effects from curcumin, demonstrating its relatively safe use [2].

According to one registry study of Meriva, after 3 months, 50 subjects receiving Meriva experienced decreased pain scores (measured by WOMAC scores), increased mobility (measured by an increased walking distance from 76 m to 332 m), and decreased inflammation (measured by CRP levels) compared to a control group [3]. Because Meriva contains curcumin with a specialized lecithin delivery system, curcumin is largely absorbed at higher levels than regular curcumin. In a study evaluating 15 subjects, Meriva was found to decrease pain in those with joint inflammation and pain when compared with other known treatments [4]. Apart from its effects on joint health, Meriva has also been studied to alleviate side effects associated with cancer treatment. In a study of 160 patients, Meriva was found to relieve side effects such as nausea and vomiting in those undergoing chemo- and radiotherapy. These beneficial effects may be explained by Meriva’s antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects [5].

          Pleasantly surprised!

          Really surprised to say that after just a few days of taking this, I’ve seen a noticeable difference in my aches in pains, especially upon getting up out of bed and walking down to the first floor of my house. No more creaks. I can walk down like a normal adult. It’s great. So happy I gave this a try.

          This supplement definitely helps with stiffness!

          I have been taking this supplement for a week and I can definitely tell a difference in my knees at the end of the day. I do distance running every morning and a lot of walking at my job. I also go on a distance walk with my wife at night. Before I started taking this, especially now that I'm a week in, at the end of the night my knees would be very sore. Now that I am taking this I can tell my knees have more mobility and they aren't as inflamed as they used to be. I'm sure with continued use this will only get better. My only con with this supplement is I've noticed after taking it when I burp I have some reflux. Usually, this isn't a problem after I eat, after my workout. But while I'm running it tends to make things a bit uncomfortable. It does help though, which is why I will continue to use it.

          Delayed release curcumin

          Clean packaging. Product is made with clinically proven delayed release curcumin. I have been taking the product for about 30 days and have noticed a decrease in joint pain and stiffness. I feel confident that with continued use my joint pain and stiffness will continue to go down. I also feel like I have more energy due to the decrease in pain.

          Good product, would buy again.

          Product seems to work as advertised. I haven’t noticed a lot of pain relief in my joints but after the number of surgeries I have had I didn’t expect much in that category. I was more interested in how it helped in my hair fall. It seems to have slowed quite a bit.
