Derived from natural food source - natural pine bark. Clinically proven to reduce inflammation in a number of different therapeutic applications (including arthritis, IBS, injuries, and autoimmune disorders), methyl sulofonyl methane (MSM) is a safe and natural addition to your supplement program either used for overall health or to help treat a specific condition. The famous book, "The MSM Miracle" revealed much of the ground breaking research that has been done on this supplement. A derivative of DMSO, MSM contains organic sulfur which is needed by every cell in your body, but especially the cells that make up the tissue in our hair, skin, nails, and joints. This is why many people notice improved joint health, and not to mention softer skin & brighter hair, as well as firmer nails when they take MSM. MSM can also help improve the absorption of other supplements you take with it; it can also help to detoxify your body. Taken with vitamin C, it's effects are enhanced.
What is MSM?
Methtl-Sulfonyl-Methane (MSM) is a sulphur-containing compound that is used as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It is a derivative of DMSO and is safer to use because it does not accumulate as rapidly in the body and does not have an offensive odour.
As a source of organic sulphur, MSM helps to build protein, connective tissue, hormones and enzymes. Its pain relieving activity is believed to be fourfold. Firstly it can reduce the transmission of pain signals along nerve fibers. Secondly it increases blood flow to an area. Thirdly it reduces muscle spasms. And lastly, MSM stops the release of inflammatory compounds. MSM can also help the body to detoxify by supporting the functioning of the liver. MSM can be helpful for those individuals who have inflammatory conditions like arthritis, lupus and interstitial cystitis, suffer from seasonal allergies, or have pain due to other health conditions.
Reducing Joint Pain Naturally
Most people over age 35 have at least some wear and tear in their joints, but that doesn't mean it should cramp your style.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It usually has a gradual onset and begins after the age of forty. The knees, hips, fingers and vertebrae are most susceptible. The joint deterioration is due to faulty or deficient repair of bone and cartilage in the joint. The standard North American diet is deficient in the minerals necessary for proper joint repair; therefore it is not surprising that osteoarthritis is a common concern. Osteoarthritis causes stiffness and joint pain on motion.
It is typically worse in the morning. Initially there is no inflammation or swelling of the joint. As the damage progresses the joint may become inflamed and deformed. Muscles around the joint can tense up, joint mobility may decrease and there may be a grating feeling on movement. The pain becomes constant and occurs even when at rest.
Drug Treatments Actually Worsen Arthritis
Conventional treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatories has been shown to worsen arthritis. Side effects of some drugs are gastrointestinal bleeding, stomach ulcers, heart attacks and liver problems. Some of these medications, especially the NSAID group can actually accelerate the degradation of joint tissue and can cause a loss of bone mass.
