MSM is a white, crystalline powder that is odorless and somewhat bitter tasting. It is very easy to use. MSM mixes in water more easily than sugar and just barely affects the taste. In juice or other beverages, it is undetectable.
MSM can be a natural remedy for muscular soreness and athletic injuries, tendonitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, post-traumatic inflammation and pain, heartburn and hyperacidity, headaches and back pain, and allergies. MSM is critical to the formation of connective tissue of all types. People taking MSM may notice benefits including softer skin, harder nails, thicker hair, and softening of scar tissue. MSM is often combined with glucosamine and chondroitin for joint relief and repair.
MSM is a chemical in animals, humans, and many plants. People use it most often to try to treat arthritis.MSM can be produced in a lab, where it is sometimes combined with other supplements such as glucosamine or chondroitin.
MSM is a kind of organic sulfide, it is human body collagen synthesis of the necessary material. In a person's skin, hair, nail, bone, muscle and each organ contain MSM, the human body will use every day mgMSM 0.5, once the lack of it would cause health disorders or disease. Therefore, as a health of foreign drug application, is maintain human biological sulfur elements of the main drugs balance.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organosulfur compound with the formula (CH3)2SO2. It is also known by several other names including DMSO2, methyl sulfone, and dimethyl sulfone. This colorless solid features the sulfonyl functional group and is considered relatively inert chemically. It occurs naturally in some primitive plants, is present in small amounts in many foods and beverages, and is marketed as a dietary supplement.
1.Helps to maintain the structure of the proteins in the body
2.Helps in the formation of keratin which is essential for hair and nail growth
3.Aids in the production of immunoglobulin which maintains the immune system
4.Catalyzes the chemical reactions, which change food into energy.
5.Inhibit pain impulses along nerve fibers (analgesia)
7.Increase blood supply
Although no medical uses for MSM have been approved by any government, a variety of health benefits have been claimed and studied. Stanley W. Jacob reported having administered MSM to over 18,000 patients with a variety of ailments; he co-authored a book promoting MSM with a variety of claims, including a utility as a natural source of "biologically active sulfur," suggesting that people are deficient in such forms of sulfur in their dietary intake. There is no Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) or Daily Value established for sulfur and sufficient dietary sources are readily available in onions, garlic and cruciferous vegetables and in protein-containing foods, including nuts, seeds, milk and eggs (whites and yolks).
The claims for the need for sulfur supplementation originate with Robert Herschler, a biochemist who patented "Dietary and pharmaceutical uses of methylsulfonylmethane and compositions comprising it" in 1982; he claimed that MSM was useful in stress, mucous-membrane inflammation, allergies and gastrointestinal conditions.
MSM is sold as a dietary supplement and marketed with a variety of claims, often in combination with glucosamine and/or chondroitin for helping to treat or prevent osteoarthritis. According to one review, "The benefits claimed [for MSM] far exceed the number of scientific studies. It is hard to build a strong case for its use other than for treating arthritis problems."
Moreover, in cases involving topical therapeutics, the role of MSM as an active agent, per se, versus its having a role in promoting skin permeation (in manner, akin to its solvent relative DMSO) must be characterized/controlled. The biochemical effects of supplemental methylsulfonylmethane are poorly understood. Some researchers have suggested that MSM has anti-inflammatory effects. The spectrum of biological effects of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and MSM differ, but those of DMSO may be mediated, at least in part, by MSM.
Herschler's patent documents, and much of the alternative medical literature supporting MSM use, claim that "the average diet is deficient in methylsulfonylmethane because it is readily lost during conventional food processing, such as frying, dehydrating, dilution with synthetic fillers and other poorly nutritional additives, cooking, radiation or pasteurizing, and long-term storage".
