You might know turmeric as the bright yellow spice that adds colour to curries but now it has a surprising health benefit! The active compound in turmeric, known as curcumin, is becoming increasingly known as a natural aid for the inflammation and pain of mild osteoarthritis. Swollen, inflamed joints can make life a misery.
Our special formulation of curcumin may help to decrease pain, swelling and inflammation in mild osteoarthritis.
Curcumin also has a potent antioxidant effect. It’s not yet known whether its demonstrated benefits for mild osteoarthritis come purely from its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, or whether it is also working in other ways to help keep you moving.
Regular curcumin is not very well absorbed by the body, with very little making it into the bloodstream to work on inflammation and pain. In fact, curcumin has poor bioavailability, requiring high doses to get results. But not ours! Australian NaturalCare’s special formulation of Meriva curcumin is made using patented phytosome technology to combine turmeric-derived curcumin with phospholipids to boost bioavailability, and improve the absorption of the curcumin.
Each tablet contains: Curcumin 90mg (from Meriva ® Curcumin phospholipid complex 500mg).
Recommended Adult Usage:
Take one tablet twice daily with food, or as advised by your healthcare professional.
Dairy, lactose, wheat, gluten, animal products, corn, sugars, yeast, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours.
