Alpha Lipoic Acid is a water and fat soluble antioxidant. Alpha Lipoic Acid helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism, supports the nervous system and provides nutritional support for metabolic processes.

 A key component of the metabolic process, alpha lipoic acid produces energy in muscles and directs calories into energy production. In addition, it helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism, supports the nervous system and provides nutritional support for healthy liver function. In one study, alpha lipoic acid decreased serum lactate and pyruvate and promoted healthy glucose metabolism in lean and overweight individuals. Alpha lipoic acid supported nerve health in subjects who participated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial. The ability of alpha lipoic acid to modulate nitric oxide metabolite activity and to promote healthy microcirculation accounted for its ability to promote nerve cell health in two separate studies.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a multifunctional nutrient which plays a key role in the antioxidant network and the metabolic process.

Nerve Health: At this time, as many as fifteen clinical trials have examined the role of alpha lipoic acid in maintaining healthy nerve function. The results of these trials have typically demonstrated that alpha lipoic acid administration provides neuroprotection. In part, this may be due to alpha lipoic acid’s ability to modulate nitric oxide metabolite activity and to promote healthy microcirculation.

Glucose Metabolism: Alpha lipoic acid supports healthy glucose uptake and helps to maintain healthy glucose utilization. It also plays a role in moderating the formation of advanced glycation end products.

Cardiovascular Support: In addition to supporting healthy glucose metabolism, the antioxidant properties of alpha lipoic acid also promote healthy vascular and blood vessel function.

Serving Recommendations: 1–2 capsules per day, in divided doses, with meals.

  • Research suggests Meriva 500-SF can provide nutritional support to oncology patients*

Meriva 500-SF is a unique, patented curcumin product. People throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin for centuries. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry), and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits, including supporting joint health and hepatic, GI, and cardiovascular function, by helping to maintain the bodys normal inflammatory response through optimization of cytokine production.*

Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. In conjunction with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, Thorne Research has uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. Meriva curcumin phytosome is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts.*

Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phospholipids (from sunflower oil in the case of Meriva 500-SF), essential components of human cells. Although the body does make phospholipids (such as phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine), phospholipids can also be obtained from food or nutritional supplements. When taken orally, phospholipids are very well absorbed. The scientists at Indena found a way to attach a curcumin extract to phospholipids obtained from sunflower oil for optimal absorption, resulting in Meriva 500-SF. With Meriva 500-SF, the body readily absorbs the phospholipid with the attached curcumin, which results in more curcumin reaching the body’s cells that can benefit from it.*
