Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM) is a nutritional form of sulfur. It is a pure, natural, stable, white odourless crystalline powder. MSM acts as a transport molecule for elemental sulfur, which is required for the amino acids; methionine and cysteine. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Proteins are required for growth and repair and are involved in; the formation of healthy connective tissues, joint function, proper enzyme activity and hormone balance, along with the proper function of the immune system. MSM has very important roles in the body because of its close relationship with proteins.
Sulfur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body and is found in every cell of every animal and plant. Approximately half total body sulfur is concentrated in the muscles, skin, and bones. Sulfur is found in many foods being most abundant in eggs, but can also be found in significant quantities in grains, legumes and animal proteins, however the sulfur found in these foods is easily destroyed through processing and cooking.
MSM is important in the maintenance of body protein and cell function. MSM has wide spread applications in assisting the body to function optimally. Almost everyone in our modern society is deficient in MSM but with age the deficiency grows even more pronounced.
Adults take 1-4 capsules daily with food, or as professionally prescribed.
