This product is developed through a proprietary process of esterifying oil & has been clinically tested. Celadrin promotes joint health by improving flexibility, painmanagement and mobility. The myristoleic acids and the cetylated forms may alter the 5-LOXenzyme and change the leukotriene production, inhibiting inflammatory compounds.

OTHER IMPORTANT ISSUES: MSM has synergistic abilities to reduce certain substances in the body which may affect inflammation.
