Cetyl-Myristoleate (CMO)

Cetyl Myristoleate is an oil existing within the classifications of a free and unsaturated fatty acid (myristoleic acid). Myristoleic acids are abundant in the oils of fish, dairy butter(s), whale, and kombo butter. This acid existed in biological obscurity until the scientific exploration of one man, Dr. Harry W. Diehl (a specialist in sugar chemistry employed at the National Institute of Arthritis, Metabolism, and Digestive diseases), with added reference to his accompanying patents of Cetyl Myristoleate in 1977. [1]

Diehl's passion for discovering a cure for arthritis began over 40 years ago and the discovery of CMO may be heralded as one of the greatest nutrition-based discoveries of the past century. His research began with mammalian studies, with the focus of trying to induce arthritis in a controlled mice and rat populous. He soon discovered through different scientific applications and peer evaluation, mice are simply not capable of developing arthritis. [2, 3]

The clinical studies by Diehl and associates indicated that Cetyl Myristoleate gave protection from adjuvant-induced arthritis in rats. Diehl would set out to prove this theory in human physiology, with an direct emphasis on the nutritional supplementation of CMO and its resounding effects of persons suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
