Cetyl myristoleate is an ester comprised of the 16-carbon atom alcohol, cetyl alcohol, and the 14-carbon monounsaturated fatty acid cis-9 tetradecenoic acid, or myristoleic acid. There is no credible support for claims that cetyl myristoleate is effective in arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and immune disorders, from PDRHealth.
Cetyl Myristoleate (CMO) For Arthritis: Science Or Speculation
There are a lot of fabulous stories about Cetyl Myristoleate (also known as CMO) floating across the Internet. There have been a number of articles published in little known journals or magazines. There have been four small booklets published. One making fantastic claims, all four filled with anecdotal evidence but offering no real research to back up the claims, from SelfGrowth.com.
Statement Operation Cure.All, From The Federal Trade Commission
The Arthritis Pain Care Center marketed CMO, claiming that this fatty acid cures most forms of arthritis. The company claimed that CMO is a 100 percent natural product that can actually reverse the effects of arthritis, once and for all. "Don't be fooled by reports from the Arthritis Foundation," it said. Full use of hands restored after five days of CMO. These claims are obviously deceptive.
