What is Myristin?
EHP Products’ Myristin, the subject of this review, is unique in that on its product website there does not seem to be any claim whatsoever about what the product is for. Other products, offering similar compounds, say they provide relief/recovery from joint pain. The maker of Myristin claims that the product has a 40% concentration of CMO or cetyl myristoleate and says it’s the highest CMO concentration in a supplement. The product is said to deliver its effects (whatever they might be) quickly in just a little over two months in most cases.
- Cetyl Myristoleate (260mg)
- Cetyl Oleate (180mg)
- Cetyl Myristate Linoleate (133mg)
- Cetyl Linoleate (12mg)
- Cetyl Palmitate (7mg)
- Cetyl Streate (6mg)
- Other Cetyl Esters (52mg)

Myristin contains different kinds of fatty acids, specifically cetylated fatty acids. These fatty acids are thought to help alleviate joint pain and increase its range of motion. The product’s main ingredient, which is cetyl myristoleate is one of the most common cetylated fatty acid used to alleviate joint discomfort after it has shown to prevent the development of laboratory induced osteoarthritis in mice. However, despite the fact that cetyl myristoleate is commonly used in dietary supplements, there is only little clinical evidence to support the purported benefits for any medical condition. The high oil content of this product might also cause a problem for those who have an oil sensitivity.
The manufacturer recommends taking three Myristin capsules a day with plenty of water, 30 – 45 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. However the company’s website says that it’s okay to take the capsule right before or after your meal.
What is the Cost?
Myristin is available on the company’s website for $49.95 per bottle containing 51 (yes, 51, not 50) capsules and $159.95 per bottle that contains 200 capsules. The company also has special offers which includes a markdown price of $44.95 per bottle containing 51 capsules and $147.95 for bottle that contains 200 capsules.

Our Final Review of Myristin
The product contains a what the company claims is a significant concentration of CMO or cetyl myristoleate that other products claim can help reduce joint pain. Myristin makes no such claims, nor does it provide a money-back guarantee, nor does it provide any user reviews. It is important to remember that as of the time of this review, there was little evidence to support the claims of cetyl Myristoleate’s therapeutic effects. We would certainly recommend looking at competing joint-pain products.
