MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) or dimethyl sulfone, is a naturally occurring sulfur compound. Sulfur compounds play an important role in the body’s organs and systems. For example, sulfur plays a critical role in detoxification, and also in inflammatory conditions.
For detoxification, sulfur is part of one of the most important antioxidants that your body produces: glutathione. Without sulfur, glutathione cannot work. There are other options when it comes to sulfur-bearing supplements such as garlic, cysteine, methionine and Alpha Lipoic Acid. However, MSM powder remains the most concentrated source available and therefore it remains the best option.
Why do I need MSM?
MSM is a building block for the body and as a result, it can effectively be used to treat the following:
- Anti-oxidant protection
- Detoxification, including excess and heavy metals
- Food allergies
- Hair, skin and nail health
- General connective tissue support including joints, blood vessels, eyes, etc.
- Wound healing
This supplement has many applications, and it works particularly well when used in conjunction with glucosamine, especially for joint pain and inflammation. MSM supplements are beneficial for helping the body form new joint and muscle tissue while lowering inflammatory responses that contribute to swelling and stiffness. It is a beneficial nutrient for your bone health and helps conditions such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis.
Do be advised that patients using Heparin or Warfarin are to be cautious and use of this supplement, and therefore it needs to be approved by a medical practitioner. In conclusion, always consult a doctor before changing your supplements to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the supplements.
