What is MSM?
MSM is a sulfur-bearing compound that is naturally present in very small amounts in fruits, vegetables, grains, animal products, and some algae. In its purified chemical form, it is an odorless, essentially tasteless, water-soluble crystalline solid. It is one of the safest biological substances you’ll find in all of biology, containing 34% elemental sulfur by weight. The sulfur MSM supplies represents the eighth-most-abundant mineral in your body, about the same as potassium, and more than sodium.
How Does it Work?
Sulfur compounds are found in all your body’s cells and are indispensable for life. In its role in your body’s sulfur cycle, MSM is a form of biologically available sulfur, naturally occurring in tiny amounts in plants. In your body, it helps create chemical links needed to form and maintain numerous types of structural tissues in your body, including connective tissues, such as articular cartilage and skin. It adds a naturally occurring form of organic sulfur that has been shown to improve joint flexibility, reduce joint pain, and improve your mobility.
Improving Your Quality of Life
Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of MSM to your joints and cartilage. An example is a study found that subjects older than 50 years of age taking MSM for 12 weeks experienced substantial decreases in joint pain, stiffness and swelling compared to a placebo group. Those who received the MSM supplement also reported less difficulty getting out of bed and walking, improving their overall quality of life.
NOW Foods MSM has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Research indicates that MSM inhibits a protein complex called NF-kB that is involved in responding to inflammation in your body. In addition, this supplement has been shown to increase your levels of glutathione, which is a potent antioxidant that your body produces. On study involving 40 physically fit men found that taking MSM before exercise decreased release of inflammatory cytokines and prevented over-stress of immune cells. Yet another study indicated that MSM helps reduce exercise-induced muscle damage and increases antioxidant activity following intense exercise.
