  • MSM is an essential nutrient for optimum joint health. Being the most useful form of Sulfur, MSM is involved in the formation of connective tissues like cartilages and tendons, which connects bones to form a joint. Preliminary studies on MSM revealed that having enough of this nutrient helps maintain and repair these connective tissues, making the joints more resistant to mechanical wear and tear. Arthritis, a degenerative joint disease characterised by pain and inflammation is the most common result of the joints’ mechanical wear and tear.
  • MSM can nurture the skin for a fairer and smoother complexion. Sulfur is a key ingredient in the production of the production of collagen, the protein that keeps the skin properly toned, flexible, and smooth. It also works with the Vitamin C in the creating new and healthy skin tissues. Wrinkles, fine lines, skin sagging, and other skin signs of aging are usually due to reduced collagen in the skin. Old age is the most common cause of decreased collagen in the body so the elderly can potentially benefit from MSM supplements to replenish the lost collagen.
  • MSM can benefit detoxification at a cellular level. According to studies, Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane helps improve cell permeability, which allows for toxins to be efficiently removed from the cells and for nutrients to enter the cells for nourishment. MSM is also considered a calcium phosphate dissolver, which works by breaking up the harmful calcium that causes age-related or degenerative diseases.
  • MSM supplements can help achieve healthy hair and nails. The hair and nails are also considered as connective tissues that are made up of collagen, which is formed through the help of MSM. Having enough supply of MSM from the diet or from MSM supplements helps rejuvenate brittle hair and nails from reduced collagen levels.

MSM stands for Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane, a bioavailable form of the mineral sulfur. It is essential in the formation of glycosaminoglycans or mucopolysaccharides that are needed to build the proteoglycans like chondroitin sulphate, hyaluronic acid, and dermatan sulfate. These proteoglycans are the basic structural units of the body’s major structural tissues like the cartilages, tendons, skin, hair, and nails. The body needs this biologically active form of sulfur in order to help stay strong, young, and energetic. Old age along with poor diet can lead to diminished supply of MSM. The human body becomes stiff, overall energy is reduced, and the joints begin to get inflamed due to weak and broken connective tissues. During this time, having more supply of MSM from the diet or from MSM supplements can help replenish the amount of bioavailable sulfur that the body needs. Natural sources of MSM include fresh fruits and vegetables, raw milk, and rain water. However, cooking reduces the amount of MSM in the diet. This can be when taking MSM supplements is a good option as an additional source. More often, MSM supplements are consumed together with Vitamin C to maximise the effects.
