What is MSM?
MSM scientifically is known as methylsulfonylmethane. In layman’s terms MSM is natural and safe form of organic sulphur, the kind your body can absorb and use. MSM is derived from many raw foods. MSM has been used as a dietary supplement for several years, with no reports of intolerance or allergic reaction.
Why is MSM important?
Sulphur is found in approximately half of the total human body. Sulphur is concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones. It is present in keratin, the tough substance in the skin, nails and hair. Sulphur is necessary for making collagen, the primary constituent of cartilage and connective tissue. It is responsible for the formation of body proteins that form the disulfide bonds which hold connective tissue together.
Optimal health is dependent on maintaining the process for producing healthy and flexible cells. Without proper nutrition, the body can run short of the materials it needs. Lacking sufficient MSM, the body is a compromised system, deficient in it’s ability to repair and replace damaged tissue and organs. The inability of the body to do it’s work causes it to produce dysfunctional cells which can lead to illness and disease.
