Zinc - Your very own natural sunscreen

Zinc is a wonderful natural sunscreen. There has been a good deal written about banning some of the chemical ingredients used in sunscreens due to health scares in recent times. MISMO has never agreed with using chemical ingredients for sun protection. While it is good to enjoy the great outdoors and get your Vitamin D fix, it's very important particularly in our Australian climate to make sure we are protecting our skin while doing so and preferably protecting it naturally too. Enter, the fantastic and extremely versatile mineral Zinc. Zinc is a mineral that has been used for decades for sun protection. Zinc is able to reflect UV rays - both UVA and UVB as opposed to absorbing UV rays which is what chemical sunscreens do. Chemical sunscreens can also create free radicals on the skin which can, accelerate the ageing of skin, along with a host of other not so nice side effects one of which you may have already experienced yourself and that is breakouts.

Zinc on the other hand will do no such thing. In fact, in addition to its sun protection qualities, Zinc also possess super calming properties and is excellent for Rosacea, acne or blemish type problem skins. Zinc has wonderful healing powers and is able to help strengthen the skin barrier which is essential for optimum skin health. MISMO has included Zinc in our Ultra Moisturising SPF Sunscreen. This moisturiser provides an SPF of 15 and is a light matt cream. If you're worried about it having a white sheen then don't, as we use a micro (not nano) Zinc that quickly becomes clear on the skin as opposed to earlier forms of zinc that use to leave the skin with a white sheen. If you are looking to fortify your sun protection, then a Natural Mineral Foundation over an SPF moisturiser is a great solution. Both MISMO's Mineral Powder Foundation and Liquid Mineral Foundations will work perfectly thanks to the inclusion of Zinc and Titanium Dioxide. Choosing a natural solution for your sun protection will offer many benefits for not only your skins health but for your overall well-being too.

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.
