Turmeric Phytosome with Meriva
Best value for peripheral tissues
This is an excellent curcumin product. Meriva has higher absorption and penetration into peripheral tissues than regular curcumin, making it excellent for reaching joints. However, it will not pass through the blood brain barrier (this requires Long vida curcumin). Although it is less absorbed than Theracumin it is more economical per dose. It is a mainstay supplement for me.

This product is a Godsend. I would list all of the ways in which it has helped me to avoid the claws of conventional medicine, but then this review wouldn't be published. I will say that turmeric is one of my favorite go-to herbs... with a whole host of benefits. Get it, and see for yourself!
My only qualm is that there's soy in this product, and I wish they used something else to source the phosphatidylcholine (like sunflower) instead.

I switched to this formula from SWH084 seventeen months ago due to the Meriva for better absorption. This formula provides joint and memory health.

This product is one of the few supplements that you can get noticeable results within a few days. I'm not allowed to make specific claims, but I will say that I feel MUCH better when I take these. I did some looking around on Indena's website and verified that the soy used is non-GMO.

BEST Price for SAME Value
I was using a fancy-schmancy brand named product with Meriva in it because I thought it was only used by one company. Turns out, this supplement contains the same ingredient. It works just the same as the expensive one, at about one quarter the price!

Feel better already
Both my husband and myself noticed after about 3 days that we felt stronger and more alert. Waiting right now for second order to arrive. Will continue using this because I can feel the difference right away.

Only one easy pill
With all the benefits of Turmeric, this product gives you it all in just one easy to swallow pill a day. I feel good. If you can buy turmeric spice and use it in your cooking even better, but when you can't you are still doing good with this one pill.

Better absorption than regular turmeric
If you're looking for a way to get large quantities of curcumin into your system, you've found it. Do your research. 450 miligrams of Meriva results in the same amount of curcumin in your blood stream as 8 grams of regularly formulated curcumin.

Swanson Ultra Turmeric Phytosome with Meriva
We have been using this product for 2 years. We did some research before we started using it. It supposed to have better absorption rate than other types of tumeric pills out there. The batch we bought last year was much lighter in color. The recent batch has the same familiar orange yellow color.

I need the tumeric, but NOT GMO soy. So dissapointed to not be able to use this, but I won't use GMO products.

The Meriva formulation is worth paying a bit more for as research shows far better absorption with itl Swanson has the best price I have found for it.

Best form of turmeric...
Tumeric is a great spice to take offering many health benefits but is hard for the body to absorb. Meriva makes turmeric much easier for the body to absorb. Up to 25 times better absorbed than turmeric that is not in the meriva form. Swanson's has this product at the best price I have sen anywhere. Use this product, be healthy and enjoy.

I've been hearing lots of good things about Turmeric for a while now, and I can say that this highly absorbable form is the way to go. I know it is working for me. I feel the difference every single day. A permanent item on my Favorites list and I'll be using it from now on. Great price, too! Swanson Rocks!

Good for the price
I have been buying another brand of Meriva not available at Swanson's. I switched to Swanson's because they added ingredients I can't take. Swanson's Meriva isn't quite as orange as the other brand, but perhaps that is because of the rice flour. I would like to see Swanson remove the rice flour. Not sure what purpose it serves, and for some of us, starch is a no-no. But, for the price, you can't beat this product. I can't tell if it is any less effective. I'd like to see rice flour removed from all supplements, as I try to avoid it as much as possible.

Vastly Superior Product
I am a Ph.D. organic chemist who has been investigating and using supplements for over 25 years. Meriva ranks among the top major product improvements in that period in my opinion. It's effectiveness is supported by good science. And Swanson has the best price. To be able to take a lower dose of turmeric extract yet actually absorb a much higher percentage of curcumin from it compared to a non-phytosome formulation is an outstanding advance. I use it myself as do many of my medical profession friends.

Best Absorbed form of Turmeric
From the research I have done this is definitely the best form of Turmeric for our bodies to absorb. It is also reasonably priced. Turmeric has multiple health benefits and is a supplement worth taking everyday to support good health.

For what it does, this product may be the best buy anywhere no matter the price. This product ingredients are right now heavily being researched for the effectiveness. This version of turmeric could be the discovery of the century. Simply amazing!

I've been looking for a bio-avail Tumeric product and Meriva has an excellent reputation. It's priced right and a must have supplement for me. Thanks Swanson for making it affordable for the long term while offering an excellent product.

I have been taking this product for months and feel that it boosts my immune system with no side effects. I had not ordered these on time once, and I had to go without them. I felt a definite difference in my overall vitality and breathing. The only thing I would recommend is having these capsules available in larger quantities.

Research says good things
I have taken various Turmeric supplements over the years.This one is suppose to have a much higher absorbency rate so I now taken this one for about 6-8 months. Not sure it does anything but like most antioxidants time will tell.

I know the benefits from taking curcumin and believe this product does the best at getting enough into my system. This is as far as I know the only curcumin made with this process. I would recommend it to everyone.
