The benefits of taking a daily oral dose of MSM are extensive. Inflammation is common from many conditions including arthritis; joint and muscle pain from exercise or strains; allergies; skin problems including rosacea and acne. Even scarring can be reduced using MSM. The anti-inflammatory properties of MSM act swiftly in most cases to improve many issues.
What is MSM? Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM) is a natural organic form of sulphur. Sulphur is an essential element we need every day for good health and relief from many of today's health problems. Sulphur is the fourth largest mineral found in the human body, and is also found in meat, dairy products and vegetables. Quality MSM is a crystal and looks like sugar. These crystals have a very tiny molecular weight so enter the body easily, either when taken orally or used as in gel or cream containing MSM.
Conditions that Benefit from MSM:
Osteoarthritis Pain Relief from arthritis pain is probably the main condition we hear about daily at MISMO. The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects help reduce swelling and pain when taken regularly. By reducing inflammation, MSM reduces pain. We have hundreds of testimonials from customers who have experienced relief.
Joint & Muscle Care 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. It is an essential nutrient for your joint, bone and muscle health and helps conditions like arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Help Boost Immune System Continued use of MSM can help the body fight viruses and illness. MSM plays a part in the body's production of glutathione, a master antioxidant which is critical for overall health and function of your immune system.
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 normalise collagen formation and radically improve skin health and dramatically reduce the signs of ageing. Scars even old ones can be improved by taking and applying MSM gels to the scars. MISMO Cell Soother is an MSM Gel which has a great track record with scarring.
Detoxification 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.
