Myristic Acid


Myristic acid is a natural organic fatty acid found in plants and animals. It has been proven effective in helping with fat metabolism and weight reduction, as well as anti-aging and improved brain and nerve quality. It is completely safe for supplementation purposes.

Further, research has found that this fatty acid plays an important role in anti-aging, including delaying senility and dementia, by activating enzymatic proteins called sirtuins, particularly SIRT6. These contribute to mitochondrial biogenesis, maintaining the genes, regulating the circadian rhythm, and to improved stress responses and mental clarity. (Here is a link to a technical article from the University of Wisconsin.)

Anyone may use myristic acid to retard aging and declining of mental ability, or for weight control and to keep trim.

Common sources of myristic acid are nutmeg oil, coconut oil, palm oil and butter fat. The acid is actually named after the nutmeg, which has the botanical name myristica fragrans.

Another name for it is tetradecanoic acid because it has a chain of fourteen carbon molecules. There is a water soluble COOH molecule at one end and a fat soluble CH3 group at the other end.

Not all saturated fats are bad. Although myristic acid is a medium length saturated fat, it is very beneficial if not consumed in excessive quantities. It is also used in making flavors, fragrances, soaps and cosmetics.

A high fiber diet is recommended in conjunction with taking myristic acid to help avoid possible minor constipation.*



Myristate is the term for a salt or ester of myristic acid. The salt is a stable form that provides all the benefits of myristic acid, such as weight loss and slow aging.

MyristateTM is also the name of a patented extract of Myristic Acid, U.S. Patent #6,054,480.

MyristateTM is derived from coconut oil, nutmeg oil and palm oil. 500 mg. of myristic acid extract and 5 mg of turmeric extract are in each capsule.

Turmeric is a popular herbal plant related to ginger. It is rich in curcumin, a tremendous antioxidant that is also known to retard the aging process as the myristic acid does.
