1. Do I need to keep taking CMO month after month?
For many people and animals, up to 2 months usage is all that will be needed for up to one or two years. However, some individuals may need another two month course earlier, and some may need to take a maintenance course of three to seven softgels weekly.
2. What else is taken with CMO?
EHP Products developed an exclusive synergistic formula called Myrist-Aid to accompany Myristin® brand of CMO. Myrist-Aid contains glucosamine sulfate, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), bromelain, curcumin, manganese, vitamin C, and, to help with absorption of CMO, lecithin and lipase. Eight Myrist-Aid are taken daily, divided into three doses to accompany the three Myristin® softgels. We also recommend concurrent use of Myristin Topical Cream with Myristin® and Myrist-Aid.
3. Can I use Myristin® with the medications I use regularly?
Yes. While there are no known contraindications or interactions with Myristin®, it is always a good practice to consult with your healthcare professional before starting something new.
4. Will my diet affect CMO?
Some items in diets may conflict with absorption of beneficial oils that cartilage in joints needs to remain healthy. Most notably, these are carbonated cola beverages, tea, and citrus juices, such as orange and grapefruit juices. On the days Myristin® is taken, it is helpful to avoid consumption of such items for at least 1/2 hour before and 1/2 hour after CMO is taken. If you normally consume citrus products at breakfast, you can change the Myristin®/Myrist-Aid from before breakfast to bedtime.
5. Can I take CMO if I have allergies?
Myristin® contains no artificial preservatives. It does contain a small amount (2 IU) of natural vitamin E as a preservative. Historically, Myristin® has not been known to cause an allergic reaction in anyone. If you have a history of severe allergies, it is always a good idea to consult with your healthcare professional before starting to take anything new.
6. What if I am pregnant or have a medical condition?
As with any substance, pregnant women or nursing mothers should use CMO only after consulting their health care professional. It is a good idea to keep your healthcare professional aware of all supplements you are taking if you have a serious medical condition.
7. Can I give Myristin® to my child?
Myristin® dietary supplement should be given to children only on the advice of a qualified healthcare profession and in the amounts specified by the healthcare professional.
8. What about medical advice?
Anyone with medical questions about Myristin® or questions about whether it should be used should consult with his or her healthcare professional. Nothing in this web site is intended as nor should be construed as medical advice. Only a licensed physician or other healthcare professional can give medical advice.
9. Can my dog or cat or horse use CMO?
Most certainly. EHP Products sells almost as much CMO for veterinary use as it does for human use. In conjunction with our veterinarian customers, EHP Products has developed a tasty, chewable tablet for dogs and cats. Horse owners have used Myristin® 20% CMO powder in combination with other supplements for their horses for over fifteen years.
10. Are claims of CMO from a vegetable source legitimate?
Not all of them. If the fatty acids used to manufacture the CMO product come from the kombo nut, which is harvested in the West African countries of Sierra Leone and Gabon, then the product can be legitimate. Unfortunately, kombo nut fatty acids are low in myristoleic acid and consequently the amount of CMO in the product will be low.
