MSM - Beauty from the Inside Out

MSM is naturally found in fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, grains, coffee, tea, and beer, but only in small amounts. The amount of sulphur found in non-animal sources are quite minimal and depend upon the plant and soil conditions. Cooking food also decreases the amount of sulphur content. If your diet is dairy-free, or if you have reduced or no consumption of animal proteins, it is very likely you are not getting enough sulphur rich foods in your diet. Vegetarians, those who are ill or recovering from trauma, or pregnant and nursing mothers require higher sulphur intake due to poor diet intake and/or increased physiological demands. Women who are pregnant or breast feeding must ensure adequate sulphur intake, as it is the 6th most plentiful mineral in breast milk and is needed for infant growth and development.

Ageing Skin

The dreaded wrinkles and sagging skin of age reflects many things – hydration, essential fatty acid intake, collagen, mitochondrial health, and other things like sulphur. As mentioned in the title, sulphur is considered to be nature's beauty mineral as it directly affects skin and outward appearance. In a two-part clinical study published February 2020, participants were evaluated for fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture linked with ageing. Individuals who received 3 grams/day of MSM for 16 weeks experienced a decline in facial wrinkles and skin roughness compared to the placebo group. Results of the second part of the study evaluated which dose was better for skin health. Participants received either 1 gram or 3 grams of MSM per day for 16 weeks. Both groups experienced noticeable improvement in facial wrinkles, skin firmness, hydration, and elasticity, but the higher 3 gram dose per day was more effective.

Not Just Inside Out, but Top to Bottom

Your hair, skin, bones, central nervous system, connective tissue, mucous membranes, and joints require sulphur compounds as an integral part of healthy anatomy and physiology. Additionally, sulphur enables oxygen transport across cell membranes and affects cell regeneration. Antioxidant and enzyme systems such as glutathione, homocysteine, methylation metabolism and detoxification require sulphur. Your body literally uses sulphur from the inside out, top to bottom.

Joints and Bones

MSM is often used with other joint nutrients to support cartilage health due to its antioxidant and anti-wear and tear support. Your bones also need sulphur for growth, strength, and density. When adequate sulphur is present, it helps the cross-linking of collagen and minerals to come together in bone. When sulphur compounds are insufficient, it becomes harder for calcium, magnesium, and other necessary bone minerals to help bones build and remodel. The attachment of minerals to bones requires adequate sulphur compounds.

Exercise and Recovery

Athletes may want to consider using MSM before and after a strenuous workout as it helps with tissue recovery. Fatigue and soreness after a work-out or a day of physical labor may relate with a temporary build-up of lactic acid, but physical strain can come from many things including cortisol stress. Exercise stress releases cortisol. Some cortisol is needed, but in excess, it leads to muscle stress and breakdown, which affects your recovery. The Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition concluded that MSM, may favourably influence selected markers of exercise recovery, which aids in faster recovery.

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.
