Humans and many domesticated animals often experience stiff and sore joints as they begin to age. This is because the synovial fluid within the joint capsule deteriorates with time, so the bone ends of the joint no longer glide smoothly. The joint cartilage that once enabled the bone structure within the joint to operate with ease can be damaged by the calcification that occurs due to an injury or overuse. Sports injuries or repetitive motions are the sources of most arthritis, and the condition can affect humans and animals alike.

Within the past few decades, research has shown that the discomfort of this condition can be relieved through supplementation, and the progression of arthritis may be slowed or even stopped. CMO supplement provides cetylmyristoleate in a strength that has been shown to be effective over time. The recommended course of treatment for patients taking a Myristin/Myrist-Aid combination consists of eight capsules per day over the course of two months. A maintenance dose of one Myristin softgel per day is recommended after the initial two-month treatment.

While no supplement is likely to provide 100 percent relief from arthritis, cetylmyristoleate makes it easier for sufferers to perform their daily activities with only minor discomfort. Research has shown that the supplement may also help to relieve the symptoms of Fibromyalgia that are related to painful or stiff joints and muscles. The compound is also available in a cream that can be applied to specific areas of discomfort in addition to taking the oral form of the supplement.

Humans are not the only mammals that are affected by arthritic joints; many domestic pets that include dogs and cats also experience stiff joints as they age. Horses are even more likely to become arthritic since they experience a high level of physical stress as a performance animal. Whether a horse is used in equine sports such as show jumping, racing or rodeo, an incredible amount of physical stress is placed on their legs. Most horses begin to show signs of arthritic joints by their fifteenth year and up.

Many people choose to treat their arthritis symptoms with over-the-counter medications, but there can be negative side effects when these products are used long-term. Some people with sensitive stomachs find taking cetylmyristoleate may cause some problems, but capsules with a cornstarch base help them to tolerate the supplement better.
