What is MSM?
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is a naturally occurring, organically bound dietary sulfur assisting in multiple functions in the body. Next to oxygen, water, and salt, MSM is the fourth most needed element in human and animal nutrition. Sulfur is involved in nearly every metabolic process in the body, and is essential in the regeneration and nourishment of healthy cells.
Sulfur is one of the most basic building blocks of the structure of the body. Without the proper amount of sulfur or MSM in our system, we cannot produce good, healthy cells. When our system is deficient in MSM, our bodies cannot make enough good cells to overcome the effects of the sick cells. We then are subject to various illnesses, aches, pains and allergies until we correct the problem with good healthy cells. The body wants to heal itself, if it can get the proper nourishment. We all need a little extra MSM each day for good health! Without the proper amount of MSM in our bodies, the amino acids will continue to build the glands, but fail to produce the correct enzymes, making us prone to unnecessary illness.
MSM is the flexible bond between proteins. When a cell dies, a new cell takes its place. Without the needed amount of MSM, it attaches but becomes rigid. When tissues lose their flexibility, problems develop with the lungs and other parts of the body.
How does MSM work?
MSM facilitates the exchange of oxygen, carbon dioxide and nutrients, which promote the healing process of skin. MSM is a bioavailable source of dietary sulfur contributing essential sulfur for the synthesis of proteins, hormones, connective tissue, and enzymes. As a central component of collagen, sulfur assists the body in preventing inflammation and facilitating repair of connective tissues. MSM is more beneficial when taken with a complete Vitamin C, which is known to be essential for synthesis of connective tissue, enhancing the absorption and utilisation of MSM.
MSM acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It also inhibits muscle spasm and increases blood flow. MSM is critical to the formation of connective tissue of all types. MSM is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms, including human body fluids and tissues.
MSM detoxifies the body and increases blood circulation. Because there are few nerves in the bones, our pain comes from the soft tissue.
Why take MSM?
Because bio-nutritional sulfur plays such a major role in these healthy body functions and others, it was found that supplementation with MSM improves many health problems such as: allergies, asthma, emphysema, lung dysfunction, arthritis, headaches, skin problems, stomach and digestive tract problems, circulation, cell osmosis and absorption.
An allergic reaction is simply your body's reaction to something foreign in your system. These foreign proteins and free radicals invade your body and cause reactions and problems. Your body responds with a sneeze, wheeze, swollen, puffy eyes, etc.
When you take MSM, your cells become more permeable, enabling your body to quickly wash out any foreign particles in your system. Every twelve hours your body is designed to flush each cell of any unwanted debris. When your diet is deficient, the cell walls become hard and stiff and this hinders fluid flow through the cell walls. MSM softens the cell walls, allowing foreign proteins and free radicals to be washed out of your system. If enough MSM is taken, all of the foreign particles can be flushed from your system and your allergies will no longer occur.
As a dietary supplement, MSM is recommended for neutralising and eliminating toxins as well as alleviating conditions of environmental and food allergies, pain from inflammatory disorders, gastrointestinal ailments, and infection.
Wrinkles: MSM helps to minimise wrinkles and give a healthier, vibrant appearance as well as stronger hair and nails. When the body replaces old skin cells, if there is a deficiency of MSM, the new cells are stiff and contribute to wrinkling. MSM supplementation helps the body replace bad cells with good, healthy, elastic cells. In time, wrinkles go away.
Lung Dysfunction: Smoking does not always cause Emphysema. Horses and dogs get emphysema, and they don't smoke: It is a deficiency of MSM that causes this condition (welding fumes, smoke, etc. are an aggravation), and supplementation with MSM can help reverse it.
Diabetes: Even diabetics can benefit from MSM supplementation. Self-regulation of blood sugar can occur because MSM allows for proper absorption of blood sugars and insulin, and even repair of a damaged pancreas. When there is an MSM deficiency, cell membranes become less permeable, the pancreas overworks and ultimately fails, while blood sugars saturate the blood stream instead of entering the cells to provide nourishment and energy.
Sore Joints and Muscles: Testimonials of many athletes point to the ability of MSM to increase athletic stamina and eliminate sore muscles. This is because MSM increases the ability of the body to eliminate wastes and toxins at the cellular level, where good health begins.
