MSM occurs naturally in rainwater, fresh fruit and vegetables. Organically bound sulfur is odorless and is an important component of many enzymes, in cartilage and many other important compounds and structures in the body. Sulfur naturally occurring in food is destroyed by heating. In the body, sulfur is found mainly in protein-rich tissues.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a nutrient found in the normal diet of humans and almost all other animals. MSM is made up of 34% sulfur, the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. It serves as an important nutritional source of bioavailable sulfur, an element that plays a critical role in maintaining the integrity and elasticity of connective and other tissues. It is an important part of proteins in the body, such as: B. in hair, nails, skin and tendons.
Our immune system is dependent on sulfur, as many enzymes and hormones can only be produced with sulfur. The amino acids important for the liver also contain the building block sulfur.
OptiMSM does not contain any animal ingredients. It is free from yeast, lactose, starch, gluten, preservatives, artificial aromas and flavors.
MSM - a study overview
Several preclinical and clinical studies demonstrate the effectiveness of MSM in supporting the musculoskeletal system. Research shows that MSM reduces markers of inflammation in the aging process and protects their integrity. A review by S. Brien, P. Prescott, N. Bashir, H. Lewith and G. Lewith in a randomized controlled trial with methylsulfonylmethane in knee osteoarthritis found a significant improvement in pain in the treatment group compared to the placebo group.
Stanley W. Jacob, co-author of a book promoting MSM, reported that MSM was given to a variety of discomfort-prone groups of over 18,000 patients, and all of the indications were that people were severely sulfur deficient in their daily diet.
Most of the alternative medical literature that supports MSM - paints a common picture that the average diet of methylsulfonylmethane is deficient because it is immediately lost in conventional food preparation such as frying, steaming, boiling and pasteurizing.
Premium quality: The distilled form of OptiMSM ™
OptiMSM is the only premium quality on the market. At OptiMSM, heavy metals and other contaminants are removed in a proprietary four-stage distillation process. Normal MSM, on the other hand, is purified by means of crystallization and can contain impurities because the impurities present in the solution can be trapped in the crystals during the crystallization process.
Adults 1 capsule daily with water or with a meal.
