What is MSM Powder?

MSM powder (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is a source of organic sulphur, which is an essential element we need every day for good health and relief from many of today’s health problems. It has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body, which assists in the alleviation of pain and discomfort and is also fantastic for increasing energy levels and assists in the growth of hair, nails, and skin.

Research shows that MSM 

  • Is an excellent form of Health Insurance
  • Is a natural solution to many ailments
  • Helps alleviate symptoms of pain and arthritis

The natural solution

Research by Dr Stanley Jacob & others in more than 12,000 patients over 20 years confirms MSM can benefit, sometimes dramatically, the following:

  • Acne
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Sporting injury

A great video to watch (about an hour long) is the talk from The Riordan Clinic about the benefits of MSM. You can check it out here.

MSM is excellent health insurance

A great book on the benefits and research done on MSM is “The Natural Solution for Pain” by Dr Stanley Jacob. From his research and the work of others, Dr Jacob believes that supplementing with MSM, to provide the body’s requirement for MSM in a bio available form, is an excellent form of health insurance.

Without MSM, which belongs to the same chemical group as oxygen, life could not exist, because MSM is essential for:

  • Maintaining the structure of body proteins
  • The formation of keratin (for hair and nails) and collagen for healthy bones and skin
  • The production of immunoglobulin for the immune system
  • The reactions which convert food into energy
  • Elimination of toxins from the body

MSM is found naturally in fruits, vegetables and other plants, but many foods are now processed in ways that reduce the amount of MSM we receive. This effect becomes more marked as we age, since our ability to form MSM also declines, increasing the need for MSM.

Alleviate pain from Pain and Arthritis

Dr Jacob indicates MSM benefits for patients with osteoarthritis:

  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Reduces muscles spasm around arthritic joints
  • Lessens scar tissue formation
  • Increases and improves circulation in the body, including painful joints
  • Highly likely to slow cartilage degeneration

Research shows the arthritic cartilage has only about one third the MSM levels present in normal cartilage.

In one study, patients with x-ray evidence of degenerative joint disease given MSM had an 82% reduction in pain after 6 weeks, compared with only an 18% reduction in the group given placebos.

Dr Jacob’s studies in tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome, frequently associated with RSI showed MSM improved these conditions as well.

With arthritic patients, Dr Oiszewer of the Preventive Medicine Clinic in Sao Paulo, Brazil, had a study involving 60 men and women aged 40 to 82, noted that their results with MSM were good in 90% of cases!! Patients in this study who were on no other medication during the trial, were given 750mg of MSM twice daily and reported effective pain relief in 2 to 14 days. In the cases where only one joint was affected Dr Oiszewer had patients apply MSM lotion to the affected area, since this remarkable nutrient can also be absorbed through the skin! No side-effects were noted, but a few patients found no benefit from the treatment.

The Miracle of MSM – The natural solution for pain

Dr Stanley W Jacob M.D., Ronald M. Lawrence M.D. Ph.D, & Martin Zucker

An excellent book on MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) written by the Godfather of MSM, Dr Stanley Jacob in conjunction with 2 colleagues. This book contains the best information available on MSM.

The Miracle of MSM gives the whole story of MSM from its beginning and documents many real life cases of people with various ailments and how MSM helped them back to normal pain free lives.

MSM is also effective for

Skin and Nails

MSM is known for preventative effect on cross-linking of collagen and protein thus reducing hardening of skin and connective tissue. This makes MSM an extraordinary treatment for improving skin and quality of the skin problems such as acne, burns, topical fungus or dry, aged, wrinkled skin. Apply liberally to skin and rub into area affected.


Hair is made up of a protein called keratin, produced in the follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin. MSM is necessary for the production of collagen and keratin. Researchers report rapid hair growth.


Sufferers of chronic snoring were given 16% MSM drops in a water solution in each nostril 15 minutes prior to bed. 80% reported reductions in snoring with no side effects whatsoever after 90 days.

Insect & Plant Stings

MSM also eases irritation from insect/plant stings and allergies. MSM increases permeability and pliability properties to all tissues, prevents blistering, also promoting faster healing from sunburn and wind damage. People who took from 1-2 grams of MSM suffered only mildly after about 4 hours of exposure to summer wind.


An adverse reaction to a substance normally harmless to others is deemed allergic. Allergies are not limited to hives, hay fever and asthma. Individuals may develop an endless combination of mild to severe behavioural, emotional and physiological problems – exposure to chemicals, pollen, dust mould, food etc. Nutrition has deteriorated – we no longer have a strong immune system! MSM is extremely beneficial for allergies. Users repeatedly say that chronic allergies have improved immeasurably. These were frequently people for whom medication had provided only limited relief!

Acidity & Heartburn

Both lab and clinical studies illustrate that MSM can provide extremely effective, often immediate relief from excess acidity, with no side effects. Dr Jacob states patients with hyperacidity who use antacids or acid-blockers use MSM with excellent results, experiencing none of the side effects that often accompany anti-acid drugs.

Importance of MSM in the body

Studies have shown these benefits:

  • Analgesia and pain relief
  • Anti-inflammatory effects for arthritis
  • Builds and maintains healthy joints through its effects on collagen
  • Reduces muscle spasms and relieves muscle soreness
  • Helps to normalise the immune system
  • Readily absorbed orally and through the skin
  • Normalises bowel function and restores regularity
  • Essential for the production of keratin and other proteins
  • Needed for bile production and the formation of Taurine


From research by Dr Jacob and others however, it appears that 2g to 8g daily is sufficient in normal situations (such as an immune system booster) reduce or increase as required. Taken with vitamin C can improve the effect. The world’s top MSM authority Dr Jacob took 30g MSM daily for the past 20 years – no side effects, colds or flu!!

Use only 99.9% pure MSM, mix with water, lemon juice or unsweetened fruit juice. 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!

Difference between Regular & Distilled MSM

The difference between the 2 available types of MSM lies in the manufacturing process. MiSMo MSM, our regular product, is manufactured using a crystallisation process. A high speed spinning method leaves the crystals on the sides of the tank for collection.

Distilled MSM involves a 4 stage distillation method using high heat. Steam containing the MSM crystals is captured, ensuring the Distilled MSM is contaminant free. Distilled MSM is universally accepted as the best MSM available. The manufacturing process is longer making the cost higher.

Both MiSMo MSM products are pharmaceutical grade, pure with no additives or fillers. They taste the same and look almost the same but the Distilled MSM crystal is a little smaller.
