Turmeric Curcumin is an ancient spice that has been used for many years because of its anti-inflammatory benefits. As turmeric gained more popularity many companies started coming up with their own version of turmeric formula. Turmeric in general is hard to absorb by your body that’s why it is often mixed with some other ingredient such as black pepper in order to increase its bioavailability. Meriva Turmeric is one of the latest formulas out there.
