Description: The miracle of MSM, the natural solution for pain
Contents / Ingredients
Traditional Therapeutic Action
MSM is a natural substance. It is an inconspicuous sulfur molecule found in the atmosphere, in plants, animals, and the human body. Chemically, it consists of two hydrocarbon units attached to a unit with one sulfur and two oxygen atoms. Do not confuse MSM with sulfites; MSM is a sulfur compound but it is not a sulfite. Sulfur is a mineral nutrient found in food, and minerals are frequently deficient in the Western diet with serious consequences to health.
It is often so effective for pain relief that doctors are able to lower the dosage of other medication they prescribe for patients. The end result is relief, with none of the troubling side effects frequently caused by prescriptive pain medications.
MSM is a source of sulfur, a mineral element critical to the normal function and structure of the body. Sulfur is a raw material for the protein and connective tissue that make up our body mass, for enzymes that conduct countless chemical reactions, and for powerful natural compounds that protect us against toxicity and harmful oxidative stress. Sulfur also has a long history of healing but it has been overlooked in our current fascination with vitamins and minerals.
MSM is a surprising supplement. When you start taking it, you may notice a number of good things happening in your life. In addition to pain relief, MSM offers prompt and powerful relief of pollen allergies, commonly called hay fever -a major seasonal ordeal for some 35 million Americans. Your hair contains a lot of sulfur as well as your nails and skin. One of the most frequent benefits reported is that hair and nails have become thicker and stronger. More energy decreased scar tissue, and relief of constipation are some of the other benefits reported by users of MSM.
Other promising studies suggested that MSM may improve autoimmune diseases in which the body’s own immune system becomes deranged and starts to attack its own tissue. Rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are two of the better-known autoimmune diseases.
It is believed that MSM relieves pain in at least several ways:
