Tens of millions of people suffer from joint problems and stiffness.
Keeping your joints strong, agile, and flexible is a priority for people
wanting to live life to its fullest. When joints, which are made up of
connective tissue, receive natural, effective support, the difference
Now available as a cream, C.M. Plex™ supports joint health with a proprietary
blend of cetyl myristate, cetyl myristoleate and other cetyl esters. These
compounds have been shown to help penetrate and hydrate the joints and
increase mobility, encouraging a more active lifestyle.*
The cream and capsules work together synergistically. The cream provides
additional moisturizing benefits, while the capsules offer additional
ingredients for internalized nutritional support.
The word joint refers to any of the connections between the body's
more than 200 bones. Joints are classified into three categories according
to structure and movability. Cartilaginous joints, in which cartilage
joins the bones, can move slightly-for example, the joints connecting
the vertebrae and pubic bones. Fibrous joints are immovable, such as the
joints between skull segments. Most of the joints in the body are freely
moving synovial joints, in which touching bone surfaces are covered by
cartilage, connected with ligaments, and lined with synovial membrane.
Synovial joints take several forms, including ball and socket, gliding,
hinge, pivot, and saddle.
Millions of people lose joint mobility and flexibility at some point in
their lives. These problems can prevent full participation in many of
life's daily activities. However, natural nutrients can deliver various
benefits, including joint lubrication and smooth joint movement. Vitamin
C is vital to the skin's formation of healthy connective tissue in ligaments
and bones. Several other natural supplements have captured significant
attention recently as researchers and scientists attempt to find effective
ingredients to support joint health.*
Q. Will C.M. Plex™ lose its effectiveness with continuous use?
A. The bones and joints are active structures, constantly creating
new tissue and breaking down old. A healthy, varied diet profoundly affects
this ongoing process. As with any other component of our nutrition, C.M.
Plex™ can assist the body at any and all adult stages in life.*
Q. Can C.M. Plex™ be used by pregnant women or nursing mothers?
A. As with many other nutritional supplements, it is not recommended
that a pregnant woman or nursing mother use C.M. Plex™.
Q. Has any human research been done on the ingredients contained
in CM Plex™?
A. Yes. In fact, a human clinical study, presented at a major
scientific conference in April 2001, demonstrated remarkable effects.*
Q. What foods are sources of nutrients that support joint health?
A. Foods high in vitamin C, such as several fruits and vegetables,
are important because vitamin C is vital to the body's development of
connective tissue in ligaments, skin, bones, and blood vessels. The body
cannot make its own vitamin C, so absorbing adequate amounts through diet
and supplementation is crucial.*
