Distilled MSM Vs Crystallised MSM

What is the difference between Distilled MSM and Crystallised MSM?

We are often asked this question, so we thought it might be worth sharing the explanation. While both types look and taste the same, the difference between the two lies in the manufacturing process. It is universally accepted that Distilled MSM is the absolute best form of MSM available. MSM is also known as Organic Sulphur (Sulfur). The manufacturing process for Distilled MSM involves a 4 stage distillation process where steam is captured and impurities fall to the bottom of the tanks. This ensures maximum purity with no chance of entrapped contaminants. This more involved manufacturing process is why the cost is higher. Water content of Distilled MSM is below 0.1% which is indicative of very high quality and 99.97% purity is achieved.

MSM Powder is manufactured using a crystallisation method called centrifuge (fast spinning method) where crystals are captured on the side of the tank. We still call this MSM Powder because the word "powder" has become synonymous with MSM. Both forms of MISMO MSM are crystals resembling sugar. Water filtration is also a point of difference for MISMO MSM. All water used in the manufacture of MISMO MSM both forms, has been purified using a reverse osmosis process ensuring the highest standards. When we talk about purity in terms of the manufacturing process this refers to the best quality water of water used and the analysis of the crystals meeting the highest standards possible. This is confirmed by external analysis and each batch is issued with a Certificate of Analysis. Pure also means NO additives which include the extra little ingredients many companies use to keep the crystals from becoming hard. If your MSM is not perfectly clear when dissolved something has been added - gospel truth. Something extra to note in regards to MSM, is there are also varying grades. MISMO MSM is the highest grade - pharmaceutical grade, which is a special point of difference for MISMO MSM. Both MSM's are also listed with the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration), a government body. While both products are of pharmaceutical grade quality, and do not differ in the look or taste, it is the manufacturing process where the difference lies. There are two methods of manufacture, crystallization and distillation. MISMO's regular MSM is produced by the crystallization method which is done by centrifuge (fast spinning). The manufacturing process used for Distilled MSM is more involved and results in a super purified product which is the reason for the higher cost. Described simply, Distilled MSM is a process where steam is captured thereby ensuring the most purified crystals possible. All commercially available MSM is synthetic and created through a chemical reaction of DMSO and hydrogen peroxide. Since all commercial MSM comes from DMSO ” which is produced synthetically using several starting materials (methanol and hydrogen sulfide, or methanol and carbon disulfide) ” the origin of the DMSO isn't relevant. Whichever starting materials used; chemical reactions are required to produce DMSO. Start your new routine today and enjoy the many benefits of MSM.

THE BEAUTY, HEALING AND RESTORATIVE MINERAL

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. 

Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    A word of caution ... some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

    WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.

    Is MISMO MSM listed with the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration)?
