MSM, short for methyl-sulfonyl-methane is an organic sulfur found in the human body and in a number of foods. Sulfur, part of every cell in the body, is concentrated in the connective tissue, joint cartilage, skin, nails and hair. From ancient times to today, sulfur has been associated with healing and sulfurous waters have attracted those suffering from arthritis and digestive disorders. As a supplement, MSM helps inhibit pain impulses, lessens inflammation and increases blood supply. Thus it proves effective in treating many conditions such as arthritis, back pain, headaches, muscle pain, tendinitis, bursitis and even carpal tunnel syndrome.
It is also used to make the collagen needed for healthy skin, hair, and nails. MSM can help improve the comfort and mobility of people with osteoarthritis.
MSM may improve a person’s mobility by slowing the breakdown of cartilage, enhancing the body’s inflammatory response, and stimulating the formation of new joint and connective tissues. Improved mobility means a better quality of life, improved athletic ability, joint flexibility, and comfort.
MSM’s benefits for the musculoskeletal system are wide-ranging as this natural, organic sulphur compound is also a potent antioxidant that has been shown to reduce muscle damage after exercise. Athletes taking MSM tend to experience less muscle soreness after a workout, recover faster for more advantageous training and have healthier bone and cartilage. This natural compound may also confer a protective effect on lung tissue.
