MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms. This natural compound, researched since 1979, provides the chemical links needed to form and maintain numerous different types of tissues found in the human body, including connective tissue such as articular cartilage. While MSM is a natural component of almost all fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meat, food-processing methods reduce sulfur levels, making supplementation more important than ever. NOW MSM is tested to meet a minimum 99.7% purity.
MSM is a biologically active form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms. It is naturally found in varying amounts in raw unprocessed milk, meat, fish, fruits and vegetables.
Some of MSM's essential functions in the body include maintaining the structure of the proteins in the body, helping the formation of keratin which is essential for hair and nail growth, aiding in the production of immunoglobulin which maintains the immune system, and catalyzing the chemical reactions which change food into energy.
These functions often result in the following occurrences:
MSM is a multi-use supplement that has been used by fitness enthusiasts everywhere.
MSM and its related compounds are the source of 85 percent of the sulfur found in all living organisms. Many researchers believe that sulfur, the eighth most abundant element in the body, is a sorely neglected mineral nutrient and plays an indispensable role in human nutrition.
For centuries, mankind has soaked in sulfur-rich mineral hot springs to help heal a variety of ailments. While sulfur's natural anti-inflammatory properties have shown benefits for a range of health problems, much is still unknown about precisely how sulfur works in the body.
Most people do not eat enough of the proper foods to assure adequate sulfur stores in the body. Most foods today are over-processed, heated, or just lack adequate amounts of sulfur. MSM supplementation easily and cheaply provides this important mineral.
Most individuals will benefit from 2-10 grams (2000-10000 mg) of MSM daily. NOW MSM is safe and non-toxic. It has a toxicity similar to that of water so it would be difficult to take too much. Your body uses what it needs from ingested MSM and gets rid of the rest, therefore it is almost impossible to take too much.
MSM improves the body’s ability to create barriers against allergens. Oral MSM has been shown to alleviate the allergic response to pollen and to foods.
Use of MSM has been shown to reduce the rigidity of cells in soft tissues of the body. By reducing this rigidity, fluids are able to pass more freely from the cell and this helps reduce cell pressure, thereby reducing inflammation and pain.
Because high levels of organic sulfur are found in the skin, hair, and nails, deficiencies of sulfur will obviously affect these areas. Many individuals taking MSM notice enhancement of the skin, hair, and nails as well as other functions of the body.
MSM is very beneficial to athletes and active individuals. MSM has been shown to improve post workout recovery and to decrease recovery time for soft tissue injuries in athletes.
