MSM (Methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is an odourless, naturally occurring organic sulphur. Sulphur is the fourth most abundant mineral in all living things and is vital to the creation and regeneration of tissue. MSM is found in, and used by, every cell in the human body and is indispensable to good health. It is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, immunoglobulin and enzymes. It is a source of sulphur for the amino acids cysteine and methionine. As a source of sulphur, it is beneficial for healthy hair, skin (especially in the treatment of acne) and nails. Using Vitamin C together with MSM will further boost collagen in joints.
This product is mostly used for osteoarthritis. Research has indicated that MSM may restrict the degeneration of joints in animals with osteoarthritis. One of the most significant uses of MSM as a supplement is its demonstrated ability to relieve pain and inflammation. When rigid fibrous tissue cells swell and become inflamed, pressure and pain result. Since MSM can restore flexibility and permeability of cell walls, fluids can pass through the tissues more easily. This helps equalize pressure and reduces or eliminates the cause of pain. Harmful substances such as lactic acid and toxins are allowed to flow out, while nutrients are permitted to flow in. This prevents the pressure from building up in cells that causes inflammation.
MSM is being researched as a help for those who suffer from allergic rhinitis. It appears that it reduces the release of nitric acid and prostaglandin E2 by alleviating the secretion of inducible nitric oxide synthase and cyclooxygenase-2.
