Use and benefits of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a naturally occurring compound in foods such as fresh vegetables, meat, and dairy products. Unfortunately as we age our diet often doesn't provide the sulfur our body needs. Natural sulfur plays a role in many of the body's processes. Many of MSM's benefits have links to its anti-inflammatory action. Inflammation is a factor in many health conditions, including arthritis, allergies, and skin conditions. By reducing inflammation, MSM may be able to reduce or eliminate certain symptoms. Some scientific studies indicate that MSM could be useful for treating several different medical conditions. A great book on the benefits and research done on MSM is "The Natural Solution for Pain" by Dr Stanley Jacob. The following are some of the best-documented uses for MSM.

Treating osteoarthritis and joint pain

Osteoarthritis, which affects around 2.1 million Australians, is a deterioration of cartilage in one or more of the joints. It commonly affects the knees, hips, lower back, hands, and ankles and usually gets worse over time. Various studies suggest that taking MSM could help with symptoms of arthritis or relieve joint pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Treating allergies

Around 20% of Australians are affected by allergies with reactions ranging from annoying to potentially fatal. An allergic response occurs when the body's immune system reacts to otherwise harmless substances called allergens. Allergy symptoms are your body's reaction to something foreign in your system. Symptoms are caused by an antibody called immunoglobulin E, a protein that the body produces to fight the foreign substance. When there is sufficient MSM in your system, your cells become more permeable, enabling your body to quickly flush out any undesirable foreign particles. If your body is sulfur deficient, the cell walls become hard and stiff, hindering the flow of fluid through the cell walls. MSM softens the cell walls, allowing allergens, foreign proteins, and any free-radicals to be moved out of your system. In a double-blind study, people who took a daily dose of 3 g of MSM had reductions of more than 50 percent in their Allergic Rhinitis symptoms.

Rosacea and skin inflammation

MISMO utilise MSM in their products for topical use, meaning by applying it to the skin. The anti-inflammatory power of MSM can help specific skin conditions when applied as a cream or gel. Dermatologists have long prescribed sulfur creams and washes to treat skin conditions, including rosacea and acne. Topical sulfur has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Preventing or treating ulcers

Gastric (stomach) ulcers are sores that occur in the stomach lining. They can cause symptoms including burning pain in the stomach, bleeding, vomiting, and weight loss. A study in mice found that supplementing with MSM could help prevent gastric ulcers. The mice receiving the MSM had some protection of the mucus layer in the stomach, which becomes damaged by peptic ulcers.

Snoring

In a small study, sufferers of chronic snoring were given 16% MSM drops in a water solution as a nasal spray in each nostril 15 minutes prior to bed. 80% reported reductions in snoring with no side effects whatsoever after 90 days. The benefits of a MSM nasal spray are HUGE! Not only is it great for snoring, it is also very handy for allergy sufferers, can help nip any sore throats in the bud and is fabulous to take on long haul plane trips to help fortify your immune system against any bugs. Irene, founder of MISMO Body Care, has a simple recipe for you to make your own. Simply follow these easy steps:
  1. 1/2 cup boiled water or drinkable distilled water
  2. 3 drops Betadine
  3. 3 drops tea tree oil
  4. 2 level teaspoons of MSM
  5. Shake and add to a bottle with a spray.
Spray 4 times down throat every 4 hours plus a couple of sprays up the nose while on a plane or twice a day while travelling. You may possibly experience a mild stinging however, this should not last and the benefits will out way the short lived discomfort.

Are you ready to try MSM?

MISMO MSM is listed with the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration). We are the only company in Australia with this listing for pure MSM in powder form.

Pure MSM is just that. No magnesium stearate, silica or anti caking agents have been added NOTHING! Pure MSM must be totally clear when dissolved, otherwise something has been added.

ADVICE: Use only 99.95% pure MSM; pharmaceutical grade is best. To consume, mix with water or unsweetened fruit juice. Vitamin C powder can also be mixed with MSM to improve the bitter taste. Avoid MSM tablets, capsules and pills as the majority contain inexpensive and undesirable bulk fillers, this effectively means you may require dozens a day for the desired effect! A tablet must have other ingredients to be manufactured so you will never get a 100% MSM tablet. Pure MSM crystals will give a concentrated dosage with no additives.

Don't just take our word for it that MSM Powder is wonderful read some of the touching testimonials we've received from our customers after they've experienced the fantastic results for themselves!

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 

What is the science of MSM?

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

What is the difference between Distilled Ultra-Pure MSM and Pure-Crystalline MSM?

With the distilled product, the MSM solution is heated up to a point where the MSM is released as a vapour and the pure crystals are formed and harvested as the vapour cools on the inside surface of a distillation column.  The heating-up of the MSM solution and the subsequent cooling and harvesting process requires a lot more energy, and hence the reason why the price is a bit higher.

With the crystalline product, the MSM solution is "spun" at super-high speed in a centrifuge and the MSM crystals are formed on the walls of the centrifuge.  And although the MSM solution is highly-pure before the crystallisation process begins (having undergone a reverse-osmosis filtration process), there is a remote possibility that if there are any trace impurities in the solution they can become encapsulated in the crystalline structure.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest possible quality with no additives or anti-caking agents. Packaged in Australia from imported ingredients.

    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.

    It is recommended to take MSM in the morning, as it can give a boost of energy. Side effects when starting out with MSM can be nausea and/or headaches. This is not uncommon and is linked to the detoxifying benefits of MSM. We recommend lowering your dose if experiencing these symptoms and gradually increasing with time.

    WARNINGS: If taking 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.

      Great product

      I’ve been using MISMO MSM for about 6 months now, and I must say that it has definitely helped with my aches and pains. My feet no longer ache or feel like I’m Walton broken glass when I get up in the morning. And my hands are also moving easier and pain free.
