Cetyl Myristoleate and Bromelain

Cetyl Myristoleate (CM) : Cetyl Myristoleate first came to prominence when an experimental study showed it totally protected against artificially induced arthritis was published in 1994, Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Cetyl Myristoleate seems to function in three capacities. It lubricates joints and muscles, making them soft and pliable. Secondly, it appears to function as an immune system modulator. This may be the reason it has been found to the effective in managing autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus and multiple sclerosis. Last, it mediates inflammatory processes.

Bromelain : This enzyme is a mainstay for treating muscle injuries, but its anti-inflammatory actions also ease arthritis pain. Bromelain breaks down scar tissue, reduces water retention and blocks inflammation.

Antioxidants : Antioxidants are nutrients that stabilize free radicals. Free radicals are highly unstable molecules that attack tissues, including joint tissues. Antioxidants prevent free-radical induced tissue damage and resulting inflammation.

Antioxidants include OPCs (or more commonly known as Pycnogenol, vitamins A, C, E, Zinc, Selenium, etc.

Essential Fatty Acids : The joint inflammation is regulated in large part by essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. While omega-3 fatty acids prevent the production of pro-inflammatory prostglandin E2 (PGE2), omega-6 fatty acids help product the beneficial prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). A balance intake of both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is necessary to prevent inflammation and arthritis.
