MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) or dimethyl sulfone is a naturally occurring form of organic sulphur that is easily absorbed.
In pre-modern times we received this mineral through our diets, however, today most people suffer from chronic MSM deficiencies. Sulphur is an element found in all body cells but most concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones. It is required for the proper assimilation of the sulphur containing amino acids methionine and cysteine; and is required in the formation of many proteins and enzymes. Unfortunately, MSM in foods is mostly lost during food processing, storage and cooking. Levels of sulphur also decline in the body with age.
The medicinal properties of biological sulphur are profound and MSM gives the body the tools to maintain its health and vitality.
As we age the flexible tissues lose their elastic properties and sulphur forms bridges for flexible connections between the cells that allows them to retain their elasticity.
Experiments have shown that MSM, after eating, binds to the Mucosa – allergens and parasites cannot bind to Mucosa and so toxins are oxidised, and free radicals eliminated.
“The MSM Miracle” states MSM improves the cellular uptake of many nutrients such as Vitamin C, all B-Vitamins, Vitamins A, D, E and amino acids which prolong their lives.

6 MSM Supplement Benefits
1. Reduce Osteoarthritis and Joint Pain (mild)
A well-researched benefit of MSM is that it helps decrease joint inflammation, improves flexibility and restores collagen production. Research shows that many patients with arthritis, joint pain, stiffness, knee/back problems and a limited range of motion experience a reduction in symptoms and improved quality of life when taking an MSM supplement.
MSM supplements are beneficial for helping the body form new joint and muscle tissue while lowering inflammatory responses that contribute to swelling and stiffness. An MSM supplement is a natural and effective anti-inflammatory because of how sulfur impacts the immune system and facilitates normal cellular activity. Sulfur needs to be present for our cells to release many byproducts and excess fluids that can accumulate and cause swelling/tenderness.

Are There Any Potential MSM Side Effects?
MSM seems to be well-tolerated since it’s completely natural and already found in the human body. There haven’t been many reported side effects of MSM. To date, however, there also haven’t been many large, well-controlled human studies looking at its long-term effects.
That being said, MSM is capable of causing mild side effects for some people, including indigestion, upset stomach or diarrhea. It’s also not suitable for people taking blood-thinner medications. If you’re pregnant or unsure, speak with a doctor before taking it regularly.
