CMO (Cetyl myristoleate)

Definition: CMO, or cetyl myristoleate, is a fatty acid which is absorbed in the intestines after being orally ingested. It can be extracted from living tissue or synthetically produced. CMO occurs in certain mice species, male beavers and in sperm whale oil. Currently, it is being produced synthetically without using any animal extracts. Simply stated, CMO has the ability to inhibit the symptoms of arthritic disease including pain, and inflammation and is also considered an immunizing agent against the development of rheumatoid arthritis.

Applications: Osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, lupus, back pain, joint injuries, Reiter's Syndrome, autoimmune diseases, ankylosing spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis (several reports claim that CMO is also effective for rheumatoid arthritis as both a preventative and therapeutic agent)

Recommendations: Generally, a CMO protocol involves a three-to-six week course of treatment. A minimum of thirty days is recommended for maximum efficacy. Therapy typically involves taking a recommended number of capsules or liquid several times a day with a break of several days and eventual resumption of treatment until the entire amount of CMO has been consumed. Note: If you have trouble digesting and assimilating fats, taking lipase may help to ensure proper absorption of CMO which is a fat-based compound. Taking fat-absorbing supplements like chitosan may interfere with the proper assimilation of CMO.
