Here is a list of 7 impressive benefits that MSM delivers:
1. Anti-inflammatory (OSTEOARTHRITIS) MSM is a powerful anti-inflammatory due to its ability to allow metabolic wastes to be removed from the cells. Excess weight on the body is actually inflammation. The cells of the body are chronically inflamed and retain the byproducts of metabolic processes. Sulphur needs to be present in order for these toxins and wastes to be removed from the body. When these byproducts are removed from the system, then the cells can also dispose of excess fluids that were being stored as a buffer. What results is a natural and effective REDUCTION IN UNWANTED WEIGHT!! Also helps with bursitis.
2. Improves flexibility (OSTEOARTHRITIS) & “SAFE FOR DIABETICS” Research has shown that MSM is highly effective in improving joint flexibility. Additionally, it helps to produce flexible skin and muscle tissue. This leads to an increase in overall flexibility due to a restoration of the “juiciness” in the tissues and aids cartilage function. Glucosamine is another great product yet it creates issues with high blood sugar levels – whereas MSM is totally SUGAR FREE!!
3. DETOXIFIES the body – one of the most important features of MSM is that it makes your cells more permeable. This means that it allows toxins and metabolic waste products to easily be moved out of the cells, while essential nutrients and hydration moves in. It’s a calcium phosphate dissolver, so it has a remarkable ability to break up the bad calcium that is at the root of degenerative diseases.
4. Naturally increases ENERGY. Due to the increased permeability of the cells, less energy is required to deal with the accumulation of toxins. This results in more energy being redirected towards activity and necessary healing. Digestion is the biggest energy requirement of the body (Approximately 70-80% of your energy is spent on digestion each day). MSM increases the absorption of nutrients so that the energy expenditure on digestion is vastly reduced, thereby helping with constipation, reflux and heartburn.
5. Improves SKIN health and COMPLEXION. MSM is necessary for collagen production. Sagging skin and wrinkles, as well as dry, cracked skin are all developed through a loss of collagen. MSM works together with Vitamin C to build new, healthy tissues. MSM can normalize collagen formation and radically improve skin health.
6. Strengthens HAIR & NAILS. Collagen and keratin and both critical for the production of healthy hair and nails. MSM is a bonafide “beauty mineral” that provides the sulphur needed to produce collagen and keratin. It is also adds exceptional strength and thickness to hair and nails, which can be noticed in just a couple weeks of consistent use.
7. Accelerates HEALING. Lactic acid and other byproducts cause pain and soreness in the body. MSM increases the ability of the body to eliminate waste products at the cellular level. This speeds recovery and frees up more energy for rebuilding.
Also MSM is the active ingredient in DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) treatments for interstitial cystitis; Hayfever symptoms have improved in trials with MSM and some throat sprays use MSM to reduce snoring.
DOSAGE: Start with 1 teaspoon, 3 times per day and build up to 2-3 tablespoons per day.
