Myristin softgels are a dietary supplement intended for the treatment of arthritis and its related symptoms such as joint inflammation. It is made from cetylated fatty acids containing a 40% concentration of CMO or cetyl myristoleate. The company boasts that this 40% strength is the highest strength of any CMO product in the world.
Cetyl myristoleate affects fatty acids. It has been shown to be effective in animals and has previously been used on pets such as dogs for the treatment of joint pain.
Myristin is produced through bio-engineering in an organics plant in the U.S. Natural fatty acids and cetyl alcohol derived from coconuts comprise the mixture of cetylated fatty acids which creates the CMO molecule.

Myristin Review – The Bottom Line
So what is good about Myristin? First of all, it is a supplement that can be taken in addition to other treatments. The product is also said to improve the immune system and has no known adverse side effects. Most users need only take it for 2 months for between one and two years of relief.
But it is not the only product on the market which offers cetyl myristoleate and there have been no formal studies conducted which prove that it works in the treatment of arthritis. Myristin also offers consumers no guarantees which is a definite downside.
This product has both negative and positive benefits.
