CM8® is the primary ingredient in all our formulas. Cetyl Myristoleate (cis-9-cetyl myristoleate) is a natural compound that has been extensively researched and used in the treatment and prevention of joint pain and many musculoskeletal conditions like arthritis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, and many others.
Cetyl Myristoleate has lubricating qualities that can help reduce joint stiffness and improve performance as well as anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties. It is also an immune system modulator; capable of regulating hyper-immune responses.
We only use a high-grade USA-sourced Cetyl Myristoleate Complex containing the highest and most bio-available concentrations of Cetyl Myristoleate available. This ideal form of Cetyl Myristoleate is achieved through a proprietary distillation and crystallization processes designed to eliminate inert fatty acids and increase the physiologically active components.
Glucosamine is a main ingredient in the majority of joint support products. It is known for its positive effects for both treating existing injuries and preventing future problems. The downside of Glucosamine is that in order to receive these effects you either need a large dose daily or you need to properly combine Glucosamine with other ingredients to magnify its effectiveness, something most glucosamine based supplement manufacturers do not typically do.
Glucosamine, along with our other well-researched ingredients, provides an ideal support platform that promotes the healing of existing conditions and further enhances the performance benefits offered by the primary ingredients in all our formulas.
MSM is a naturally occurring substance in the body. By taking in MSM in the form of a supplement you are merely adding to the levels you already have. It is commonly used in arthritis supplements for it joint support and anti-inflammatory properties.
Adding to your natural levels of MSM can also help maintain proper hormone levels, antioxidant use, stomach function, and healthy skin and hair.
Sulfur is one of the most abundant elements in the human body, and supplementing your body with MSM can have a positive effect on a large number of your body’s regular functions.
HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN TYPE II
Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II supports the body’s ability to maintain and renew healthy connective tissue and strong, flexible joints. It is a concentrated bioavailable and bioactive matrix of naturally occurring molecules, meaning it comes from quality sources and is easily absorbed by the body for the maximum effect. The Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II we use is the most bioavailable form and is made from a single natural source and backed by multiple patents.
Numerous clinical studies and extensive research support the effectiveness of Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II. In a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study, Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II was associated with significant improvements in various markers of joint health by improving physical activities, as measured by participant’s VAS and WOMAC scores.
Digestive Aid And Anti-Inflammatory
Bromelain helps to break down molecules in the stomach. The act of digestion is often overlooked, but all the best ingredients in the world won’t do any good unless your body can absorb it.
Many joint problems are caused by inflammation, Our formulas include multiple ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties for this reason. Bromelain is one such ingredient and plays an important supporting role in the overall formula. Bromelain is derived from the stem of pineapple, and has been used medicinally for hundreds of years in Central and South American societies. More recently, it has been studied extensively for its anti-inflammatory properties and positive effects in alleviating osteoarthritis and related symptoms. According to the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database, Bromelain, may be “about as effective as some prescription painkillers” when combined with other complementary enzymes.
