CM Plex and CM Plex Cream are an oral softgel, and topical cream product respectively, combining different fatty acids, in a proprietary blend of cetyl myristate, cetyl myristoleate, and other cetyl esters.
Benefits and research
Cetyl myristoleate and related fatty acids have been researched in relation to improving joint health. It is suggested that these fatty acids have anti-inflammatory effects. A clinical study with the proprietary fatty acid blend of CM Plex Softgels in 64 subjects indicated that subjects using the blend exhibited improvements in knee flexion and function compared to placebo. A second study in 40 subjects indicated a topical cream consisting of a blend of cetylated fatty acids is effective for improving knee range of motion, improving ability to climb stairs, rise from a chair, and walk, and improving balance, strength, and endurance. *
Softgels: Take one or 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 combine both products.
CM Plex contains a proprietary blend of cetyl myristate, cetyl myristoleate, and other cetyl esters. For detailed dietary information, please see www.unicity.net .
