What is Arthritis?
Arthritis isn’t a singular disease. In fact, there are more than 100 types of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. While each type usually involves painful and swollen joints, each has different causes and treatment methods. In addition to the common aches and joint pain common with arthritis, having to deal with dull, sharp, or burning joint pain daily can wear you down, causing fatigue, which then turns around and causes more pain. Even if it appears your arthritis is under control, many people experience arthritic flares, causing your joints to become painful and inflamed.
There are many ways that arthritis can negatively affect your daily life. However, there are a variety of options available to help reduce strain, protect your joints and allow you to better function on a daily basis, including diet, exercise, therapy and supplements. If you are interested in all natural compounds specifically designed to combat arthritis pain, you may want to consider taking a Cetyl Myristoleate supplement, such as Myristin.
How Can Cetyl Myristoleate Help?
Cetyl myristoleate, is an all-natural chemical compound also known as the cetyl ester of myristoleic acid. In supplement form it is useful for alleviating arthritis and joint pain. In studies, cetyl myristoleate has been shown to be effective in treating or preventing joint pain caused by various arthritic ailments including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis as well as fibromyalgia and gout. In addition, some studies indicate that it may work as well or better than glucosamine & chondroitin for treating pain caused by a variety of issues such as bursitis and sport-related injuries.
In clinical observation, cetyl myristoleate appears to function in four ways:
Joint lubrication – A noticeable decrease in morning stiffness and aches and pains after periods of inactivity.
Anti-inflammatory – A reduction in digit swelling as early as two to three weeks after supplementation begins.
Immunomodulator – Regulates and calms hyper-immune responses, alleviating symptoms of many autoimmune disorders.
Pain relief – Cetyl myristoleate functions as an analgesic, reducing pain, possibly by decreasing swelling through its anti-inflammatory qualities.
While cetyl myristoleate has been shown to be effective for relieving aches and pains of arthritis in humans, it also can be beneficial for animals as well. For example, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association members have been utilizing Myristin for horses, dogs, cats and other small mammals since 1996 for treatment of veterinary issues.
