Thorne Research Meriva-SF Review – Conclusion
Meriva-SF is a supplement that looks to help people suffering from multiple ailments while keeping important body systems healthy and functioning well. Its standout feature is its unique combination of curcumin and phophatidycholine which is said to help in absorption of the curcumin. However, at the time of writing the product had fewer than 50 customer reviews and, although most claim that the product works well, it’s a small amount of feedback for gauging for the product’s effectiveness. Another concern is that this supplement lacks the exact quantities of all its ingredients per capsule. Finally, the manufacturer offers a very limited return policy which does not allow a user to try the product risk-free.
