MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulphur that occurs naturally in the human body. It is an important substance for the formation of collagen- a strong protein. Collagen is responsible for the flow of many connective tissues, cell membranes and many other structures (including muscles, cartilage, skin, bones, hair and nails).
Many foods, such as protein-rich foods and green vegetables, also contain MSM, for example. Food processing, however, removes a major portion of this mineral. MSM levels in the body also begin to decrease as people age. A shortage of sulphur may be visible, for example, through brittle nails and hair, slowly healing wounds and arthritis.
How does MSM work?
MSM helps maintain the mobility and health of joints. It alleviates inflammations and muscle soreness and accelerates the healing of muscle injuries. MSM has also been used in the treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory diseases and various aches and pains.
