MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) is a sulphur mineral supplement that offers a host of health benefits including joint pain relief and cartilage maintenance in osteoarthritis, digestion, and improved skin elasticity.
MSM, a natural form of organic sulfur, is a necessary building block for proteins, especially those found in the hair, muscles, and connective tissue of the joints and skin.
Joints & MSM: MSM helps increase the synovial fluid level in joints whilst inhibiting the enzymes that lead to cartilage destruction and helps build and ensure the integrity of connective tissues. People with osteoarthritis have lower than normal concentrations of serum sulphate and synovial sulphur levels.
MSM also appears to reduce pain by inhibiting the transmission of pain messages by nerves.According to a preliminary report, a double-blind trial in people with osteoarthritis found that MSM, in the amount of 2,250 mg per day, reduced pain after six weeks. MSM may be useful for:
- osteo & rheumatoid arthritis
- muscle pain and athletic injuries
- carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, bursitis
- lupus & fibromyalgia
- TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) pain
Digestive Health & MSM: MSM sulphur promotes digestion and the absorption of nutrients enabling us to utilise the food we eat. MSM also enhances the health of the gut by alleviating chronic constipation and its antiparasitic action against many common parasites, including intestinal worms.
Skin Health & MSM: MSM sulphur is regarded as 'the beauty mineral' of skin health because it provides nutritional support for the production of collagen and the maintenance of normal keratin levels in hair, skin and nails. With increasing age, skin tends to lose its elasticity due to the formation of cross-linkages within collagen, so it becomes more fibrous. Some researchers believe that MSM helps to maintain suppleness of tissues by blocking the formation of these abnormal cross-linkages. and as such MSM is consumed for its cosmetic skin properties including:
softer, healthier skin
shiny hair and strong nails
gum disease and gingivitis
scar tissue and keloids
