Supports Joint Health and Mobility1
CM Plex® and CM Cream are a softgel and topical cream, respectively, that contain a proprietary blend of cetylated fatty acids.
CM Plex® is an opaque oil that is insoluble in water. One softgel capsule of CM Plex® contains 350 mg of vegetable sourced cetylated fatty acids. In addition to these active ingredients, each softgel capsule contains olive pomace oil, modified tapioca starch, glycerin and St. John's Bread.
CM Cream is an off-white cream that is insoluble in water. One gram of CM Cream contains 7.5% of cetylated fatty acids. In addition to these active ingredients, CM Cream also contains glycerin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, cetearyl alcohol, tocopheryl acetate, dimethicone, phenoxyethanol, ceteareth-20, citrus Aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit oil, benzyl alcohol, acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, ethylhexylglycerin, tetrasodium glutamate diacetate.
Cetyl myristoleate and related fatty acids have been shown to support healthy joints. A clinical study indicated that subjects exhibited improvements in knee flexion compared to placebo. A second study indicated the cream is effective for improving knee range of motion, ability to climb stairs, rise from a chair and walk, balance, strength, and endurance.1
Softgels: Take one to two softgels three times daily with meals.
Cream: Apply generously onto clean skin and gently massage until the cream disappears. Repeat 3 to 4 times daily as necessary. For maximum results, use both products concurrently.
CM Plex® Softgels and CM Cream are well tolerated. As with any dietary supplement, some gastrointestinal discomfort may be experienced with CM Plex® Softgels.
CM Plex® is available in softgels.
CM Cream is available as a topical cream.
