MSM (Methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is a naturally occurring sulfur compound and is the third most abundant nutrient in the body. These sulfur compounds assist in maintaining the molecular structure of protein in the human body while providing antioxidant activity to decrease inflammation and relieve joint pain. The body uses MSM to produce antibodies, enzymes, connective tissue, mucous membranes, and glutathione. MSM will:
• Aid in the Production of Amino Acids that Help with the Formation of Connective Tissue • Promotes Healthy Skin • Promotes Healthy Hair • Promotes Healthy Nails • Helps in the Formation of Collagen
MSM will naturally promote strong, active joints, but as we age, MSM diminishes within the body. The anti-inflammatory action in MSM can result in faster joint recovery and aid in alleviating cramps and muscle pain. Research shows MSM can also help to relieve arthritis pain and reduce allergies.
While MSM can be naturally found in whole fresh fruits and raw vegetables, it is also natural component and good source in meat, fish, eggs, poultry, grains, and milk.
The correct dosages for MSM have not yet been determined, but anywhere from 500-5,000 mg have been known to be affective. MSM should be taken with or before meals and can be taken up to three times a day. Like other joint supplements, it may take several weeks for you to notice the affects of MSM, so you must take it as directed.
