MSM Health Benefits May Be Related to Its Sulfur Content

Story at-a-glance -

  • The clinical use of sulfur as an adjunct in our diet is becoming progressively more recognized as an important tool for optimizing health.

  • MSM, which is a metabolite of DMSO approved for use in humans, primarily impacts your health by reducing inflammation. It’s widely used as a supplement for arthritic conditions. Like DMSO, MSM also appears to improve cell wall permeability, so it can be used to help deliver other active ingredients
  • MSM may be providing a missing link for optimal health, which appears to be related to sulfur. MSM is 34 percent sulfur by weight, but it is more than just a simple sulfur donor. It also affects sulfur metabolism in the human body, although it’s still not entirely clear how
  • Sulfur also plays a critical role in detoxification, as it is part of one of the most important antioxidants that your body produces: glutathione. Without sulfur, glutathione cannot work
  • Toxicity studies have shown that MSM is extremely safe and can be taken at very high doses. Even if you have a very rich diet full of raw vegetables and MSM-rich foods, you can still supplement and not hit that toxicity level. Clinical research studies have found that the effective amounts range from about 1.5 grams to 6 grams
