 MSM Provides Pain Relief For Pets

Have you noticed your older dog or cat is walking more slowly? Or hesitating to jump up on the bed or sofa to snuggle like they once did? This can be a sign they are having issues with their joints. If you are concerned your pet is having mobility issues due to pain, Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM) has been widely acclaimed by vets and horse studs as an excellent option to aid in equine health care and pet ailments such as arthritis.

Horse’s Friend

Although it is not widely known, MSM has for  many years been used as a food supplement in both the equine and pet industry in the United States. MSM has been used to prevent and soothe back pain in horses that experience discomfort when moving, hair loss, sores around the area of the saddle and bruising. Horses with symptoms of back pain have shown signs of improvement, and improved recovery times, when given MSM.

Growth above the knee known as epiphysitis can be caused by a high protein diet in growing horses. MSM can be used to relieve issues such as these while assisting in the reduction of inflammation and increasing blood circulation.

Other issues that MSM can relieve in horses include Equine protozoal myeloencephalitis and arthritis.

Arthritis in Pets

MSM is believed to assist in restoring healthy joints in humans and pets. Pets are unable to tell us when they are in pain and we can watch for signs they are suffering. However, as MSM is a totally safe organic sulphur it can easily be used as a preventative approach to help avoid them suffering altogether. MSM blocks pain and also reduces inflammation. It enhances the activity of cortisol which is a body’s natural hormone that acts as an anti-inflammatory.

Further health benefits of MSM for your pets include:

  • Antioxidant to help reduce the production of cancer causing free radicals.  Improved energy, skin and healthy coat.
  • Your pet deserves the best care and preventative measures to keep them comfortable. MiSMO offers an MSM supplement that can assist in reducing pain and inflammation for a healthier, happier pet. 

  • Detoxification to allow better elimination of waste products and better absorption of needed nutrients
  • Allergies can be alleviated by providing a natural block from allergens
  • Parasites such as roundworms and Giardia can be prevented as the MSM acts as an antiparasitic
  • Risk for diabetes can be reduced as MSM provides sulphur to improve cellular glucose uptake to promote healthy blood sugar levels

  • Show your best friend some love and get them onto a daily dose of MiSMo's MSM too.

    Four Ways MSM Treats Lower Back Pain

    Friday, June 19, 2015


    Four Ways MSM Treats Lower Back Pain

    The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has estimated that up to 90% of Australians will suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives. Lower back pain can be the result of a number of health issues, including muscular strain, ligament strains, or sciatica. Whatever the cause, one thing is for certain: treating lower back pain is a slow and often disappointing process.

    One of the most promising and newest forms of treatment for lower back pain is MSM. Known as “Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane”, MSM is touted as being one of the safest alternative medicines for helping relieve lower back pain. Best of all, it does not come with any side effects or negative drug interactions which many other natural alternatives do.

    How MSM Helps Treat Lower Back Pain

    MSM helps relieve lower back pain in a variety of ways:

    1. Reducing Inflammation

    The primary way in which MSM helps reduce the amount of back pain one suffers from is that it reduces the painful inflammation that is surrounding the disk or disks in a sufferers back. It is important to note that MSM does not diminish the size of the disk which is protruding or solve the problem. However, it works well in conjunction with other therapies, including acupuncture and chiropractic treatment.

    2. Enhanced Blood Supply

    MSM has been proven to be able to dilate blood vessels and increase blood supply throughout the body. This is essential to helping heal any wounded or damaged parts of your body, including any strained muscles or damaged disks. An increase in blood flow means an expedited and more efficient flow of essential nutrients to the parts of the body which need it the most. This helps speed up just how quickly your tissues can repair and recover.

    3. A Reduction of Muscle Spasms

    Many who suffer from lower back pain report numerous muscle spasms which can incite inflammation and cause more pain. MSM has been proven to be able to reduce the number of muscle spasms from which one would typically suffer. Similar to how MSM helps reduce inflammation, it is most effective when used with other therapies (such as hot/cold therapy).

    4. Making Cell Membranes More Permeable

    The final and least-mentioned benefit of MSM is that it increases the how permeable cell membranes are. This is important as a cellular membrane which is more permeable is one which allows the body’s own natural pain killers to be more effective.

    For those wanting to increase their comfort while treating lower back pain, try taking a natural organic form of Sulphur, like MiSMO's MSM to expedite your recovery and to return to your normal and healthy life as quickly and safely as possible.

    How Sulphur Helps In Pain Management

    Thursday, June 11, 2015


    How Sulphur Helps In Pain Management

    We all know that our diet is not absolutely perfect, we probably need to take a vitamin supplement. But how many times have you been told to take your minerals?

    You might be familiar with a few minerals such as iron or calcium, but one of the most important minerals, sulphur, might not be so well known.

    Sulphur occurs naturally in your body and can assist in keeping joint pain at bay. It must be readily absorbed in order for the body to use it properly and one of the best ways to get more sulphur is to take our methyl-sulphonyl-methane (MSM) powder supplement.

    Why Sulphur

    Sulphur is an essential nutrient that assists with joint pain because it is a naturally occurring mineral found in the joint tissue. It helps to stabilise connective tissue that is found in your cartilage, tendons and ligaments, and provides the nutrition required for this tissue to remain healthy.

    Although sulphur can also be found naturally in eggs, fish and vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts, the way the food is prepared often reduces the amount of sulphur your body absorbs.

    By taking an MSM supplement you will get the sulphur you need to assist with:

  • The relief of joint soreness, stiffness and swelling due to its anti-inflammatory properties
  • Why MSM Powder?

    Mismo’s pure MSM powder is a highly bioavailable product that is easily absorbed into the body and also easy to take. It is necessary to take pure MSM powder as fillers and anti-caking agents will actually reduce the effectiveness of the sulphur as well as how it is absorbed into the body. A good quality MSM powder – like ours – will have a larger grain or crystal. A finer powder will clump and is also often a sign fillers have been added to the product.

    Rheumatoid Arthritis Relief

    There are many remedies that assist in relieving osteoarthritis symptoms but not as many for rheumatoid arthritis. However, there are properties in MSM that will assist in pain relief for the inflammation common in rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a breakdown of the joint cartilage whereas rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory auto-immune condition.

    MiSMo offers a pure MSM powder that contains absolutely no fillers or anti caking agents providing you with the quality you need to assist in fighting the pain and inflammation of arthritis and chronic joint pain.

    How MSM Keeps Hair Shiny And Healthy

    Wednesday, June 10, 2015


    How MSM Keeps Hair Shiny And Healthy

    If you feel that no matter what you do your hair seems to remain limp, frizzy, dry, brittle, dull – or all of the above – it is easy to spend hundreds of dollars on hair products. However, if you are not getting enough sulphur in your diet, all the hair care products in the world are not going to keep that crazy hair under control.

    MSM might be the answer to your hair prayers as it contains the pure sulphur you need for a healthier mane.

    Sulphur? Really?

    Yes really. Sulphur is a much needed nutrient that is found throughout our bodies. The reason MSM works well is that it is a source of pure, organic sulphur which is the ideal supplement to assist with both skin and hair health.

    Sulphur plays a key role in cell health allowing the body to absorb nutrients more effectively. Nutrients assist in keeping us healthy and when we are not getting enough of the right nutrients it can show in our skin, our nails and our hair.


    As our cells become healthy they do their job more effectively as they are better able to absorb nutrients and also get rid of toxins. Sulphur not only assists with cell health but then also allows us to produce collagen. If you have read up on skin and hair care products you know that collagen is a girl’s best friend when it comes to beauty. It is always mentioned when it comes to beautiful skin and looking more youthful. However it also plays an important part in hair growth and health.


    The second important thing you need for healthy hair is keratin. Sulphur assists in the production of that as well. MSM did not get its nickname as the ‘beauty mineral’ for nothing. It earned its title by helping to produce the body’s natural beauty products such as keratin and collagen.

    Hair Growth

    Hair has a cycle that consists of growth, rest and shedding. Sulphur is one of the important building blocks to keep hair growing and is even believed to allow you to retain your hair longer so it rests more than it sheds. This means you can have a fuller head of hair that stays smoother instead of becoming plagued with split ends as it grows.

    We carry pure MSM, ideal to get more sulphur in your diet and help manage your precious tresses. You can order your’s right now at MiSMo MSM.

    MSM Providing Relief For Fibromyalgia Patients

    Thursday, May 14, 2015

    MSM Providing Relief For Fibromyalgia Patients

    Fibromyalgia is also known as the “sore all over” sickness as it causes chronic aches and pains throughout the body. It is most common in women in their late 30’s and 40’s.

    Many doctors believe Fibromyalgia is a form of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and it is often difficult to treat. Methyl sulfonyl methane or MSM is now helping patients find relief from their symptoms offering hope to many who have been living with the condition for years.

    Diagnosing Fibromyalgia

    Doctors will diagnose fibromyalgia in patients who present with the following symptoms:

  • Widespread muscle pain, aching or stiffness
  • Complaints of tenderness when pressure is applied to at least 11 of 18 trigger points
  • Poor sleep
  • Headaches
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Chronic neck and shoulder pain
  • One of the most difficult tasks for patients with fibromyalgia can sometimes prove to be finding a doctor willing to diagnose their illness. Because fibromyalgia was regarded as a psychological issue, many doctors disregarded it as an illness requiring medical attention. Further studies, however, have made it more widely accepted as a valid medical condition.

    MSM and Fibromyalgia

    Methyl sulfonyl methane or MSM is being used in the treatment of fibromyalgia as a natural organic form of sulphur. Sulphur has few side effects and is naturally occurring in skin, bones and muscles. It also plays a key role in the production of collagen. It is thought by many to be more effective when taken with Vitamin C.

    Many doctors believe MSM is effective in combating symptoms of fibromyalgia, as in large doses MSM works to enhance the transport of oxygen from the lungs to various parts of the body.

    With an increase in oxygen, muscle cells are better able to revert from an unhealthy anaerobic metabolism to a healthy aerobic metabolism enhancing cellular and body energy. It also stops the production of the waste product, lactic acid. With fewer toxins in the body, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia can be resolved.

    Pain Reduction and Possible Elimination

    According to Dr Stanley Jacob co-author of ‘The Miracle of MSM: The Natural Solution for Pain’, MSM is oxidised DMSO. Dr Jacob found that large doses of MSM were very effective in reducing fibromyalgia pain and for some patients it was completely eliminated. There were also excellent results for reducing chronic fatigue. Successful doses varied between five, ten and 30 grams per day. The patients worked in finding the dose that was the most effective for their own personal needs.

    If you suffer from the symptoms of fibromyalgia and would like to try using an MSM supplement we carry a pure MSM powder providing you with a natural source of sulfur.

    Relief And Support For Runners using MSM

    Monday, May 11, 2015


    Running offers many health benefits to keep your body lean and muscular as well as supporting cardio health. However, running can also place a lot of strain on your body, especially your joints. Whether you have been running for years or are thinking of taking up running as part of your daily regime, MSM offers many benefits to provide joint support, increased healing, and better endurance.


    The Benefits of MSM

    Runners tend to be at higher risk for injury due to the strain on their joints. MSM offers many benefits to runners including:

    - Quicker recovery from injury

    - Improved endurance and energy levels

    - Support to joints

    - Reduces and even prevents joint inflammation

    Why Runners Need MSM

    MSM has been shown to address issues that lead to joint pain and inflammation common in runners. It does not just mask symptoms of common runner complaints which can be dangerous and lead to further injury. Instead, it actually improves the permeability of cells as well as restores flexibility.

    You will see a reduction in pain and inflammation as MSM will assist in removing the toxin build up that leads to cell suffocation and swelling. This causes muscle soreness and stiffness. MSM will help create much needed collagen which is needed for the health of your joints and muscles.

    Joint Nutrition

    Cramps are a common complaint for most runners and MSM can assist in reducing the occurrence of cramps by providing the right nutrition for your joints. This is also why it can assist in improving recovery time following injury. MSM will help avoid wearing down your joints and ligaments, repairing damage as you go by providing the sulphur required for healing and improved tissue growth. As it detoxifies, sulphur allows your cells to better absorb nutrients. Without healthy cell walls your body cannot function effectively and with cell pressure comes pain.

    Metabolism and Energy

    Taking an MSM supplement can help your body process carbohydrates for increased energy improving the uptake of glucose to your cells. It promotes the formation of keratin, collagen and elastin which will also allow you to run longer as it improves your muscle strength as well as your flexibility.

    MiSMo offers a pure MSM powder ideal to provide runners with the required amount of sulphur to heal and soothe pain.

    ​Suffer From Restless Leg Syndrome?

    Monday, April 27, 2015

    Suffer From Restless Leg Syndrome? Doctors Recommend MAGNESIUM

    Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) can be very disruptive to your life, especially when you are trying to get to sleep. It is a condition from which many people suffer, with an endless feeling of numbness as well as prickling, tingling, and twitching that tends to be most troublesome at night. Unfortunately most people have, until now, had to get up and walk around to stop the sensation. But fortunately, many are discovering that Magnesium can assist in relieving the symptoms of RLS.

    About RLS

    RLS affects one in 10 people who are aged over 65. It was identified by Karl-Axel Ekbom in the 40s, and is a syndrome that is more common in women than men. It is not only prevalent in women over 65, but also in pregnant women who can develop the syndrome during the final weeks of their last trimester.

    The syndrome seems to be tied to dopamine which results in an imbalance that sends messages to your brain that you need to move. It is a very uncomfortable feeling but can also be painful in extreme cases. Those who suffer from a severe case of RLS will describe the sensation as “intolerable”.

    Restless Leg Syndrome symptoms have been known to present in people with other health disorders such as autoimmune diseases, pancreatitis and diabetes.

    Magnesium Deficiency

    The syndrome has been linked to severe magnesium deficiency which affects your nerves, blood vessels and muscles. Magnesium Gel or Oil can help alleviate symptoms.

    Magnesium is an essential mineral needed to assist in the musculoskeletal system function. It helps your muscles relax which leads to a deeper sleep.  

    Magnesium is also safe for pregnant women.

    Inflammation and Magnesium

    Because RLS is an inflammation of the nerves, magnesium works as the best medicine as it helps relax the nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Magnesium Gel Forte is a beautiful body lotion that can be applied directly to the legs prior to sleep, and a soothing bath using MiSMo's Magnesium Chloride powder can also assist in calming the restlessness.


    MiSMo Magensium Gel Forte is the best choice for topical application whilst our pure Magnesium chloride powder is ideal for use in baths before sleep to help ease your restlessness.
