What if I told you there was a so-called “miracle supplement” that could lower inflammation, fight the effects of stress and pain, raise immunity and increase energy levels? Would you be interested? Then you need to know about the MSM supplement.
MSM is used to help treat literally dozens of illnesses, painful symptoms and diseases — and, yes, it’s been called a “miracle supplement” for all it does. So what is an MSM supplement exactly, and do you need to take one? Let’s find out.
What is MSM (methylsulfonylmethane)? It’s an organic sulfur-containing compound that’s used to improve immune function, lower inflammation and help restore healthy bodily tissue. The reason so many benefits are attributed to the MSM supplement is because MSM provides biologically active sulfur, which is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body and needed for many different critical bodily functions every single day.
MSM is a natural supplement used by hundreds of thousands world wide to promote good health. MSM is pharmaceutical grade and vegan friendly.
MSM – (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is a source of Organic Sulphur. Sulphur is the 4th most abundant mineral in our body. As we grow older the supplies of sulphur, present in every cell of the body, decline. MSM is neither a drug nor a medicine but a food supplement which is readily absorbed by the body.
YES – absolutely pure with no fillers or anti-caking agents. MSM dissolves easily in water or juice, has a taste similar to tonic water and looks like sugar. Pure MSM forms lumps as the crystals attract. Pure MSM also drops to the bottom of a glass when added to water; fillers would float. The best quality MSM is clear when dissolved.
Sugar free, fat free. Contains no gluten, wheat, dairy, lactose or egg.
No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
MSM is a wonderful product and we have many testimonials to back up our experience with this supplement.
MSM is often described as “nature’s beauty mineral”, because it helps keep the skin smooth and youthful. Sulphur is necessary for the production of collagen and keratin, proteins necessary for health and maintenance of skin, nails and hair. MSM helps cells become more permeable therefore slowing the visible effects of aging and line formation. Scars can soften from the inside out. I can vouch for that. When taking MSM powder, all of your skin benefits – not just where you apply creams.
Dr Stanley Jacobs has worked with and researched MSM for over 30 years in his pain clinic in Portland, Oregon. There have been several books written on MSM over the years, my favourite being “The Miracle of MSM – A natural solution to pain” by Dr. Stanley Jacobs and Dr Martin Lawrence. If you are interested in learning more about MSM we encourage you to purchase this book.Sulfur is an essential component of many compounds and processes in the body and is necessary for the synthesis of collagen and elastin and enzymes.
WARNING: If you are taking strong blood thinning drugs such as Warfrin only take MSM powder after consulting with your doctor. This is the only drug Dr Jacobs openly suggests avoiding.
How much MSM do you need or should you use? The FDA doesn’t recognize a recommended dietary allowance for an MSM supplement or for sulfur (which it contains), because there’s no proven symptoms of sulfur deficiency described in medical literature as of now. Therefore the dosage you’ll want to take depends on what you’re using MSM for and your current state of health.
Usually, 500 milligrams of MSM, taken three times daily, is the starting dose recommended for treating osteoarthritis. Other reports show that up to three to six grams daily (divided into three doses normally) seems to be safe and well-tolerated.
You can either buy an MSM supplement in powder form, cream form or capsule/tablet form. It’s available in powder form most often, and you might find it in powdered supplement mixes, such as green powders or digestive aids. Read the directions carefully, and start with about one to two teaspoons of MSM powder taken along with water. You can increase your intake as your body gets used to it and you assure you don’t experience any digestive side effects.
If you choose to use MSM powder (which is believe to be the most absorbable kind), try simply adding it to water (usually about 16 ounces for one serving). You’ll get the best results when you use MSM along with antioxidants/anti-inflammatory compounds like vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids.
Make sure you buy MSM from a reputable seller, and always check for the correct chemical compound name “MSM (methylsulfonylmethane).” Keep in mind that many MSM supplements contain synthetic byproducts and fillers. You want to look for an organic brand that sells “100% naturally derived MSM.”
