Isol. from rice. Food supplement As Diehl got older, he began to experience some osteoarthritis in his hands, knees, and the heels of his feet. His family physician tried the usual regimen of cortisone and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs without much effect on the course of the disease. Finally his physician told Harry he could not have any more cortisone. "So," Diehl said, "I thought about my discovery, and I decided to make a batch and use it on myself. " He did, and the symptoms of osteo-arthritis disappeared. Cetyl myristoleate appeared on the market as a supplement in 1991. Although not as well known as glucosamine and/or chondroitin, there is a growing awareness that cetyl myristoleate equals or surpasses them in the treatment of the body pains brought on by various maladies such as bursitis, gout, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and sports related injuries.
