MSM Pain Relief for Pets

For many people, their pets become part of the family and it's heartbreaking when they are in pain. One of the best food supplements proven to extend the quality of life for ageing and pain inflicted pets is MSM!

MSM (also known as Organic Sulphur) is a safe and effective supplement to give to your pets. It has the same toxicity as water! How does MSM work? MSM is a natural anti-inflammatory. MSM supports the sulphur bonds between proteins such as keratin within hair, skin and nails, connective tissue and cartilage within joints. A deficiency in sulphur supplied to these protein bonds can lead to stiff joints and joint pain. It is difficult and sometimes toxic to include enough sulphur enriched foods into animal's diets to ensure they are getting what they need. Foods which contain sulphur include eggs, spinach, broccoli and onion although onion should never be given to dogs. Although people tend to drink MSM with a glass of water or mixed with juice, animals are unlikely to drink their entire bowl of water within a day. There are benefits to adding a pinch to their water bowl, but their daily dosage is best mixed in their food. In some studies, animals that were given MSM in their water supplies had lower death rates and liver damage as well as longer life expectancy than control groups. Depending on how fussy your pets are, you may be able to disguise the flavour by adding it to their wet food (i.e. tinned dog food) or by mixing it into a sauce/gravy over dried food. It does have a bitter taste (as you will know if you take it yourself). Organic Sulphur relieves inflammation and enhances circulation. MSM has been well documented in alleviating pain in animals caused by arthritis. Some vets prescribe Asprin for arthritis, but this could result in gastrointestinal problems such as haemorrhaging or ulcers. A single dose of Asprin for a cat can be fatal. Dr. Reigel; a vet and author, reported giving a cat which was dragging its back legs and moving very slowly, MSM. Given MSM daily, the same cat was reported to be sprinting around as if it were a one year old again. Our own customers have reported great results for themselves and in their pets. In the US, MSM has been used largely with working, racetrack and show ring horses. Horses given MSM showed a delayed onset of tumours, equivalent to 10 years in humans as well as improved condition in those that suffered from sore backs. Symptoms of a sore back in horses includes discomfort, bruising, hair loss or open sores in the saddle area. Dosage depends on the animal you have and it's weight. Horses: 450kg horse one gram of MSM per 45kg of body weight twice a day or as directed by your vet. Dogs: Feed 500mg (1/2 gram) of MSM once a day per 12kg of body weight. For dogs over 40kg, feed 1 teaspoon (5 grams) of MSM daily. Other conditions where MSM can help your pets include:
  • - Acral lick Granulomas
  • - Acne (yes dogs can get acne)
  • - Cataracts although not a cure, MSM can help tremendously with blood circulation for early stages
  • - Diabetes
  • - Diabetes Insipidus Disorder
  • - Epilepsy and Seizures
  • - Feline Leukaemia
  • - Giardia
  • - Hip Dysplasia
  • - Hot spots skin infections which have an oozing discharge
  • - Lupus immune disorder
  • - Itching
  • - Improve coat shine and skin conditions

Once they are part of the family, there is nothing we wouldn't do for our pets! Luckily MSM is one supplement which can significantly improve the quality of life for those that are suffering, so they can enjoy a longer, fuller (and no doubt pampered) life.

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.
