MSM Powder Information
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a naturally-occurring form of dietary sulphur found in all living plant and animal tissues, and is essential for all bodily systems and normal organ functions. Sulphur is found in every cell in the body, and is structurally and functionally important to 150 compounds within the body, including tissues, enzymes, hormones, antibodies and antioxidants. Organic sulphur is known for its anti-inflammatory and circulation enhancing properties.
As the body uses sulphur to build new cells, when there is enough sulphur and vitamin C available, strong healthy cells are built to replace tired old ones. The only major side effect of taking MSM powder is that you will develop faster growing and stronger nails, clearer skin and lustrous hair!
So great for building collagen and maintaining healthy joints, MSM powder is also advantageous if you want to increase flexibility and recover faster from training, avoiding sore muscles – an absolute necessity for athletes who train regularly.
MSM powder increases permeability allowing nutrients to be absorbed more easily and for the increased removal of toxins – it can also neutralise foreign proteins such as allergens, toxins, parasites and has even been used effectively to neutralise the foreign proteins in snake venom.
Use MSM powder with vitamin-C rich foods and add to smoothies if you don’t mind the taste. MSM is bitter tasting, so if you put it on the top of your tongue and chase it back with a juice or smoothie, you won’t taste it as much, as your bitter taste buds are on the side of your tongue.
