MSM – Methylsulfonylmethane
MSM – Methylsulfonylmethane should be taken internally as a food (dietary) supplement. MSM is necessary for collagen synthesis: skin, hair and nails. MSM keeps cells from becoming rigid.
MSM softens tissue (“the beauty mineral”), and is believed to relieve stress, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, constipation, candida, detoxify the body and increase blood circulation, reduce muscle cramps, and back pain, help muscles to heal, increases energy, alertness, mental calmness, and the ability to concentrate.

MSM powder scavenges free radicals, relieves allergies to food and pollens, helps the liver produce choline, controls acidity in stomach and ulcers, coats intestinal tract so parasites lose ability to hang on, helps with hypersensitivity to drugs, increases body’s ability to produce insulin, is important for carbohydrate metabolism, and speeds wound healing. At higher levels MSM functions as an active agent which can be used safely and effectively for a variety of purposes.
MSM unlike DMSO is a dietary factor, and is free of unpleasant odors and neutralizes the toxicity of anticholinesterase, thereby providing protection against insecticide exposure or ingestion. When administered orally it is effective in ameliorating symptoms of physiological response to stress including gastrointestinal upset, inflammation of the mucous membranes, pain associated with musculoskeletal system disorders, and infectant allergens and appears to augment immunological competence through a natural vitamin like moderating or normalizing activity for various body functions and is noted for its exceptionally non-toxic nature for both children and adults, including geriatric patients.

MSM is also effective in ameliorating gastrointestinal upsets such as that produced by the ingestion of aspirin and other pharmaceuticals or parasitic infections. Individuals with gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, chronic constipation, nausea, hyperacidity and/or epigastric pain, or inflammation of mucous membranes also will experience dramatic relief. Individuals presenting symptoms of pain and inflammation associated with various musculoskeletal system disorders, including arthritis, reported substantial and long-lasting relief.
A combination of MSM powder and ascorbic acid (Vitamin C Extra ) is of greater benefit, this combination is especially useful in correcting leg cramps, as in athletes who experience severe leg cramps during sports activity. Migraine sufferers also have obtained substantial relief while arthritic patients report relief from pain and stiffness as well as reduced swelling and inflammation.
MSM Powder Dosages
A single dose of MSM is usually not effective in ameliorating symptoms. Noticeable results are usually seen within 2 to 21 days (certain problems may take much longer to notice changes). Daily dosages of 2,000 to 4,000 mg are recommended.
MSM Powder Side Effects
MSM powder is a safe, naturally occurring supplement. It has about the same toxicity as normal drinking water. The benefit of MSM will further be enhanced when 2,000 mg or more of Vitamin C Extra is consumed. People with chronic to sever allergies to environmental materials such as house dust, pollen, wool animal hair, feathers, and other diverse allergens report substantial to complete relief of their allergy symptoms. Allergy symptoms ranged from respiratory congestion to inflammation, itching, mucoid discharges, and general discomfort.
Methyl Sulfonyl Methane – What is it exactly ?
Methylsulfonylmethane is known as MSM. It’s correct technical name is Dimethyl-Sulfone however, scientists and researchers commonly refer to it simply as MSM !
MSM is a beneficial form of the mineral sulphur.
MSM is a nutritional or dietary supplement.
Sulphur is the eighth most prevalent mineral in the human body.
MSM is not a sulphur as such – it’s actually a “Sulfonyl” – Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane.
MSM is not related to the common sulphurs, sulphates, sulphites or sulphur drugs some of which are known to cause irritation to membranes.
MSM is totally harmless – in fact it’s important to many vital physiological functions.
MSM has a much smaller and biologically active (Bio-available) sulphur molecule than the sulphurs found in Glucosamine sulphate and Chondroitin sulphate.
MSM is not a drug – it’s a mineral.
2. What does MSM look like ?
People think of sulphur as being yellow and smelly ! During 34 years of research into sulphur compounds, Dr Stanley W Jacob (MSM’s foremost researcher) found that the heavy, smelly components of sulphur could be removed, leaving behind a pure white essential form of the mineral which is called MSM.
MSM – Where does it come from ?
The sulphur cycle begins in the ocean where microscopic plants called plankton, release sulphur compounds which are transformed in the ocean water into the volatile compound Dimethyl Sulfide (DMS).
This escapes as a gas and rises into the upper atmosphere. In the presence of ozone and high energy ultraviolet light, a process called photochemical oxidation occurs and the DMS is converted into it’s cousins DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) and MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) which are highly soluble in water.
MSM and DMSO return to the surface of the earth in rain water where they are taken up by plants. The plants and trees concentrate the compounds in their root systems to surprisingly high levels. MSM and the sulphur it contains is incorporated into the plant structure and mineralised through plant metabolism. (2, 3)
Can we get MSM from the foods we eat ?
Yes, tiny amounts of MSM can be found in grains, legumes, and fresh unprocessed vegetables like garlic, onions, cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Meat, fish, poultry, eggs and milk all contain MSM, milk for example contains between 2 and 6 parts per million (1)
Why do I need to take it as a supplement ?
MSM is highly soluble – it is easily lost during the cooking and processing of foods. Many people find it impractical to eat raw unprocessed foods on a daily basis so research has suggested that most people are deficient and that deficiency increases with age (2)
What does MSM do for our health ?
Organic sulphur is a vital ingredient in the formation of keratin, cartilage, collagen and elastin (disulphide bonds) which give flexibility, tone and strength to :- Muscles, bones, joints, internal membranes, skin, hair and nails.
The human body contains a relatively large amount of sulphur. Our skin, hair and nails all have a high sulphur content – In fact if you have ever been unfortunate enough to burn your hair or skin, the nasty smell that followed, was the sulphur content burning
