More about MSM:
Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM for short, is an organic form of sulphur that occurs naturally in meat, vegetables, dairy products and other foods. Sulphur is the third most common mineral in the human body, after calcium and phosphorous, and plays an important role in many bodily processes.
While MSM is well known for its beneficial effect on joint health, sulphur is increasingly recognised as a critical nutrient that enables the optimal function of other systems within the human organism. In this sense MSM is much more than an ailment-specific compound, it is integral to overall wellness.
Ideally sulphur should be obtained from one’s diet, but given the state of our nutrient-depleted soils, supplementation with MSM may be necessary. Meat and fish are naturally rich in sulphur-containing amino acids. Vegetarians need to obtain dietary sulphur from organic eggs, pasture-fed milk, legumes and vegetables such as kale, onions and garlic.
Why you should consider supplementing with sulphur-rich MSM:
Sulphur plays an important part in the production of substances such as biotin, coenzyme A, lipoic acid and glutathione. Glutathione is known as the “master antioxidant” because of its unique ability to maximise the activity of other antioxidants. Antioxidants are crucial in eliminating cell-destructive free radicals.
Sulphur is present in amino acids, the basic building blocks of protein. Sulphur is necessary for the formation of collagen the protein found in connective tissue. It is also found in keratin the protein that gives shape and strength to skin, hair and nails. For this reason, MSM is sometimes referred to as the “beauty mineral”.
Sulphur is an energy booster because it increases the permeability of cells and improves the cell’s ability to expel excess fluids and toxins. This detoxifying effect enables essential nutrients to enter the system easier, reducing the amount of energy spent on digestion of food and increasing the total amount of energy available.
MSM helps break down calcium deposits that may lead to bone and joint conditions, including arthritis. MSM improves joint flexibility, reduces pain, and enhances circulation and cell vitality.
As already noted, MSM supports the production of collagen and keratin resulting in vital skin, hair and nails. Sulphur is also helpful in the treatment of skin conditions, including psoriasis, eczema, acne and dandruff.
