Animal studies have found it to be useful to modulate normal inflammatory processes and to support joint health. Researchers hypothesize that cetyl myristoleate and other cetylated fatty acids might cause lubrication of joints and muscles, softening of tissues, and increased pliability. It is thought that they might also be a modulator of the immune system.
