Industry's only 100% Plant-Based Source of Cetyl Myristoleate Eliminates Worries of Feeding Beef-Based Products to Livestock

100% of the cetyl myristoleate in Natural Stride comes from the African kombo nut (wild nutmeg). This is a patent-pending feature and innovation available only in Natural Stride. Unlike using the more common beef-based source of cetyl myristoleate, Natural Stride offers a level of confidence and peace of mind that other joint supplements simply cannot match thanks to our exclusive plant-based kombo nut source of cetyl myristoleate. This 100% plant based source of cetyl myristoleate eliminates worries of feeding any animal/ beef based products to your livestock.

Cetyl myristoleate benefits the joint in four ways.

  • First, it helps modulate or “calm down” the body’s immune response to joint stress — enhancing joint recovery and minimizing damage from pain and activity.    

  • Second, cetyl myristoleate may act as an anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce the symptoms of “inflammatory arthritis” and other conditions in which inflammation can lead to slow recovery, damaged tissues, increased pain and restricted motion.

  • Third, cetyl myristoleate can stimulate joint lubrication to help relieve stiffness, which may improve mobility and enhance the natural range of motion.

  • Finally, cetyl myristoleate has had an analgesic or “pain-killing” effect that may help to reduce joint pain, hence increasing your animal’s comfort.

The Story behind Cetyl Myristoleate

Cetyl myristoleate was discovered by the late Harry Diehl, a research chemist at the National Institute of Health (NIH). In addition to isolating cetyl myristoleate and more than 500 other first-time compounds, Diehl is also known for discovering a method for synthesizing the unique sugar form used in the preparation of Dr. Jonas Salk’s oral polio vaccine.
But what about the mouse? Well, during Diehl's research on arthritis, he discovered that he was unable to induce arthritis in a particular species of Swiss albino mice. He theorized that these particular mice carried a special trait that helped prevent the onset of arthritis — and he eventually was able to isolate cetyl myristoleate as the secret compound.
To test his theory, he pretreated a species of rat susceptible to arthritis with the cetyl myristoleate he had isolated from the Swiss mouse. And when he tried to induce arthritis in these rats, lo and behold, he could not.
Diehl’s quest for an effective treatment for arthritis was spawned by his desire to help a close friend who suffered terribly from a debilitating form of arthritis. His friend passed away before Dhiehl discovered cetyl myristoleate and, amazingly, his discovery went relatively unattended for more than 30 years.
As fate would have it, Diehl later developed degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis) himself.
Unable to find lasting relief from treatments of cortisone and a variety of the usual non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, he returned to the lab and “cooked up” another batch of cetyl myristoleate. He then mixed it with a topical solution that acted as a carrier and applied it to his ailing joints. It worked!  And his joints were completely pain free after only 10 days.
Cetyl myristoleate has a proven track record of assisting animals of all ages and levels of activity — even those with severe injury, hip dysplasia, arthritis and other forms of degenerative joint disease — appear more mobile, agile and active.
Today, your animals can enjoy the same relief and benefits from this natural joint-enhancer, cetyl myristoleate. Just think, it all started with a mouse.


Maximum Potency

Natural Stride is manufactured in granular form to ensure maximum potency and the greatest benefits for your livestock. How? Because in its granular form, Natural Stride is not subjected to the potentially degrading effects of heat and pressure required to create pelleted products. As an esterified fatty acid, cetyl myristoleate has a unique molecular structure, which gives it very specific properties in the body. Changing its structure (through heat, pressure or other means) can diminish its effects and potency in the body as a nutraceutical. So we leave it just the way it's supposed to be. Unlike most nutrients, your livestock cannot manufacture cetyl myristoleate in its body. It must be supplied and it must remain intact. By eliminating the high heat and pressure involved in pelleting, you can be sure that the cetyl myristoleate in Natural Stride is delivering the greatest benefits to your animal.

Unique Formulation with High Palatability

Natural Stride is uniquely formulated for optimum results. That includes added molasses to help ensure your animal consumes the full dose. In fact, we've seen livestock "lick the bowl" to get the last few granules at the bottom of the feeder!
