Benefits of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)
What is MSM?
Methyl Sulfonyl Methane is a natural organic form of sulphur, an essential element we need every day for good health and relief from many of today’s health problems. Organic sulphur is the third largest nutrient found in the human body, and is also an ingredient found in meat, dairy products and vegetables.
Benefits Of MSM
According to the foremost expert on MSM, Stanley W. Jacob, M.D., the substance, when taken as a supplement, exerts potent anti-inflammatory activity, stops pain impulses and muscle spasm, and improves blood supply. MSM strengthens the collagen and the other connective tissue in the joints, it also allows the body to heal faster by making the tissues even stronger.
Improves Skin, Hair & Nail Health
MSM is necessary for collagen production, as we grow older we do not produce as much collagen which in turn results in wrinkles, saggy skin, dry and cracked skin. The sulphur provided by MSM produces large quantities of collagen and keratin, which is essential for healthy skin, hair and nails.
MSM is known as the ‘Beauty Mineral’ for skin, hair and nails, 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 and dramatically reduce the signs of ageing.
One of MSM’s most significant benefits is that it enhances the permeability of your cell membranes, this allows increased absorption of nutrients and speedier expulsion of excess fluids and toxins. Therefore detoxifying your cells of toxic waste products and enabling your body to better utilise the nutrients you are consuming. It has been widely reported that many health practitioners working with MSM state that it is the most powerful detoxifying supplement they have ever worked with.
Increased Energy Levels
As a result of the increased permeability of the cells, your body requires less energy 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 – we spend 70-80% of our energy is spent on digestion , MSM increases the absorption of nutrients therefore our energy expenditure on digestion is vastly reduced.
