Don’t let the name scare you off – methylsufonylmethane, known simply as MSM, is a naturally occurring compound with a wide range of health benefits. Whether you’ve dealt with everyday aches or painful inflammation, MSM can help soothe and encourage quick recovery.
What is MSM and How Does it Work?
A naturally occurring sulfuric compound, MSM is commonly found in the earth’s natural environment and in several types of food, including fruits, vegetables, grains, coffee and cow’s milk. It’s absorbed quickly in the human body, efficiently providing relief because of its ability to penetrate cell walls. Because it is fast-acting and extremely safe, MSM is frequently utilized as an effective everyday health supplement.
First and foremost, MSM is a local anti-inflammatory agent – making it useful for those coping with muscle or joint pain. Studies show its efficacy in addressing muscle soreness following exercise. Furthermore, MSM has been shown to have strong antioxidant properties. It has even been explored as a potential cancer treatment because of its ability to regulate the proliferation of certain cells.
Additional clinical uses of MSM include:
- Addressing arthritis
- Preserving cartilage to protect joint health
- Improving the range of physical movement
- Combating seasonal allergies
- Addressing skin health and improving texture
While there may be several types of MSM on the market, we recommend looking for products with OptiMSM® to ensure top-quality and efficacy. OptiMSM® was first created in the early 2000s through a novel, mutli-step distillation process resulting in a 99.99% pure product. It is safe, tested and vegan.
