Thorne Meriva-SF is a special turmeric curcumin formula that aims to help your joints, eye, GI tract, liver, prostate and nerve health. Of course, these are some big promises and we have to investigate. In simple terms, Thorne Rseearch Meriva-SF is a blend of turmeric curcumin and sunflower extract. Although the formula lacks any type of black pepper extract for absorption, it does promise a time release capsule which helps the curcumin survive the stomach acid. Even if this formula can be absorbed to your body, still it is unclear if it can deliver its promises.

Is Thorne Meriva-SF really effective?

Turmeric naturally has anti-inflammatory benefits and is also a powerful anti-oxidant which has been shown to help your overall health over time. Other ingredient in Meriva-SF is sunflower phospholipids. Similar to turmeric, sunflower also has anti-inflammatory benefits; it also helps your brain function because it contains phospholipids which is essential for your cognitive health.

Thorne Research does not provide any details about the dosage of each ingredient.
