What is MSM?
MSM is not a medicine, drug or a food additive. It is a nutritional food supplement found in all foods-milk, fruits, meats and vegetables. MSM is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms. MSM is the 3rd largest component found in the human body. Your body consists of water, salt and MSM.
MSM and its related compounds-DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) and DMS (dimethylsulfide) - are the source of nearly all of the sulfur in humans, plants and animals. The chemical formula for MSM is (CH3)2SO2. It's essentially DMSO with an extra oxygen molecule, and as such isn't lipid-soluble like DMSO.
DSMO is great in over coming cancer, it turns cancer cells into normal cells
Why do we need MSM?
The body uses MSM to create new, good, healthy cells. Vitamins and amino acids work with MSM during this process. Without proper levels of MSM, our bodies are unable to build good, healthy cells, and this leads to illness. Our bodies are producing new cells 24 hours per day. If your body doesn’t receive proper nutrition and building materials, it will produce bad, dysfunctional cells, deficient in the basic ingredients that constitute a healthy cell. If we want a healthy, flexible cell, capable of maintaining good health, we need to supplement our diets with MSM, to enable the body to heal itself. Your body knows what it needs better than any doctor. It will use MSM wherever it is needed most in your system. Give your body the MSM it needs so it can provide more nutrition and heal itself.
If MSM is found in all foods, why do we need to supplement with MSM?
Because of its volatile nature, MSM is quickly lost from food when it is processed, cooked and/or stored. The second you pick fruit or vegetables from the tree or vine, it begins rapidly losing MSM. Even in meats, MSM is not as abundant as it used to be. Today, animals are being fed with dried, stored grasses, hay and grains, deficient in MSM. When your body uses the MSM molecule to produce a new cell, it is consumed in the process, and the MSM is lost forever. We need to continuously replenish the body’s needed supply of MSM to produce new, good, healthy cells. A conventional diet does not supply the minimum requirement of MSM. It is absent in synthetic food additives, dietary mineral compositions, food substitutes and most fillers used to dilute or modify foods. With today’s modern diet of cooked and otherwise processed and diluted foods, most - if not all – diets of civilized man are deficient in this critically important ingredient.
Why The Body Needs MSM ?

Sulfur is an dispensable component in human nutrition. It's found in every cell in the body, and is structurally and functionally important to 150 compounds, including hormones, enzymes, antibodies and antioxidants. Sulfur itself is held mainly in the muscle, skin, bones, nails and hair. MSM has been found in the blood, and occurs at about 0.2 parts per million in an adult man. Ingested, MSM provides the essential sulfur necessary for a number of body compounds.

Sulfur is an essential component of various compounds and processes in the body, and is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, immunoglobulin and enzymes. In the body, sulfur:

Maintain cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products.

Ensures connective tissue health and the formation of collagen.

Provides the body with raw materials needed to create new cells, to repair and replace damaged tissues and organs.

Figures into energy production, as a component of insulin and prerequisite for normal carbohydrate metabolism.

When plants take up DMSO and MSM from the soil, they convert them into the amino acids methionine and cysteine. The two other sulfur-containing amino acids - taurine and cysteine -- are further synthesized in the body, MSM gives up its sulfur to form methionine and cysteine. the sulfur-containing amino acids are known to protect against the effects of radiation and chelate heavy metals for removal from the body.

Other sulfur-containing compounds in the body include insulin, the hormone that regulated carbohydrate metabolism, keratin, a protein that's the primary component of skin, nails, hair and teeth; collagen, the protein that forms bones, tendons and connective tissues, glucosamine, the building block for
tendons and ligaments heart valves, membranes, eyes, nails, skin and bone, glutathione, one of the primary antioxidants in the body.

In theory, an adult should be able to ingest adequate MSM. In practice, it's unlikely - again, because of mineral depletion and food processing and storage techniques. It has been speculated that the body needs higher amounts of MSM than it may get in a modern diet. In the body, the highest concentration of
MSM is in breast milk - perhaps because a growing baby needs it to boost a developing immune system, combat allergens and make an easier transition from umbilical feeding to oral feeding.

The concentration of MSM in the body begins to decrease over time, so deficiency may occur as part of the aging process. Sulfur deficiencies are associated with brittle nails and hair, scar tissue, slow healing wounds, arthritis, acne or other skin disorders, depression, memory loss, gastrointestinal problems and immune disorders.

How safe is MSM?
MSM is as safe as drinking pure water. Because of its inert nature, MSM is non-allergenic, non-pyretic, and has no interfering or undesirable pharmacological effects. It can even be used as a safe blood diluent. You cannot overdose with MSM. The body will use what it needs, and after 12 hours, will flush any excess amounts out of the body. MSM will flush what the body does not retain semi-permanently every 12 hours, and because it is a free radical and foreign protein scavenger, MSM cleans the blood stream, so allergies to food and pollens go away in about 3 or 4 days. To maintain good, healthy cells, take MSM in the morning and the evening.
MSM: An Essential Dietary Sulfur!
MSM was first isolated by Robert Herschler and Dr. Stanley Jacob of the University of Oregon Medical School. MSM, or methylsufonylmethane, is a natural sulfur compound, found in all living things. In his research, Dr. Jacob determined that the sulfur in MSM, called a sufonyl, because of its bond between sulfur and oxygen, is as safe and as important as vitamin C in our diet, unlike the bad sulfurs: sulfa, sulfate, sulfite and sulfide.
Why do we need Sulfur in our Diets?
MSM comes from the ocean and is a prime source of bio-available sulfur, which is lost from our food by processing, drying, cooking and preserving. MSM is an important food (not a drug or medicine) and plays many roles in the body, including the stimulation of the growth of healthy skin, hair and nails. It is needed by the body for healthy, connective tissues and joint function, proper enzyme activity and hormone balance, along with the proper function of the immune system.
Because bio-available nutritional sulfur plays such a major role in these healthy body functions and others, it was found that supplementation with MSM improves many health problems such as: allergies, asthma, emphysema, lung dysfunction, arthritis, head aches, skin problems, stomach problems, digestive tract problems, circulation, cell osmosis and absorption.
How does MSM function?
MSM makes cell walls permeable, allowing water and nutrients to freely flow into cells and allowing wastes and toxins to properly flow out. Amino acids, which are all sulfur-bonders, are the building blocks of the body. Each one plays a major role in the production of hormones and enzymes, which regulate
the body’s activities. MSM and vitamin C are used together in the body to build healthy new cells. MSM provides the flexible bond between amino acids in proteins. Without MSM, the new cell is not permeable, and osmosis is hampered. These cells lose their flexibility as seen by scar tissue, wrinkles, varicose veins, hardened arteries or damaged lung tissues (emphysema).
What Dosage of MSM should I take?
Good health practices involve replacing essential substances that our bodies naturally use up or lose through illness or abuse. If you are physically active
and get sore muscles after such activity, try 1/2 teaspoon and you will notice a difference. Keep in mind that the body is much more abused by toxins and free-radicals in the metropolitan cities than in rural areas and may require more MSM to maintain optimum health. The level of dis-ease your body is experiencing will also affect the amount of MSM needed to carry out daily function and proper repair of cells. Some people will take between 1-3 teaspoons depending on the level of energy and wellness they wish to obtain. You cannot overdose on MSM, so feel free to experiment.
There is no standard recommendation, but some guidelines suggest between 500 mg,
and five grams a day for maintenance purposes. Based on studies, the suggested
therapeutic dosage of MSM ranges from 2 grams to 10 grams a day.
(For James P. a 1000 mg equals one gram)
What are the symptoms of MSM deficiency?
Allergies - Dust Mites
Sore Joints and Muscles
Chronic Fatigue
Elevated Cholesterol
Candida 'Yeast' Infections
Soft & Chipping Nails, Hair Loss
Scar Tissue
Lung Dysfunction
Migraine Headaches
Digestion repair, acid stomach
Scar Tissue
Burn victims often experience skin that is flat, purple and leathery. After only taking MSM for a few days, one may notice an increase in stamina and energy. Over time, an astonishing effect on the scarred skin is seen. The skin begins to turn pink and fill in. Bill Rich, a burn victim, experienced just such effects
after being introduced to MSM by a veterinarian friend. Bill is a walking testimonial to the benefits of MSM.
When there is a deficiency in MSM in the body, old skin cells are replaced with new cells that are stiff and contribute to wrinkling. MSM supplementation helps the body replace bad cells with good, healthy, elastic cells. Over time, wrinkles, brown and black spots, and skin tumors go away as new cells replace the bad.
Damaged Skin
It is the MSM in Aloe Vera leaves that soothes and repairs skin that has been cut, scraped, burned or damaged. The body then repairs the skin with the
proper raw materials.
Lung Dysfunction
Smoking does not cause emphysema. Horses and dogs get emphysema, and they don’t smoke! Yes, smoking may contribute to the loss of alveoli and breathing capacity of the lung, but it is the deficiency in MSM that causes this condition. Remember that the body can repair itself if given the proper building blocks to perform the necessary repairs. Supplementation with MSM can reverse emphysema by supplying the proper nutrients needed to replace smoke-damaged cells with good, healthy cells.
Diabetics that have been ‘on the needle’ for years can benefit from MSM supplementation. Several testimonials have been given of those now self-regulating since they have discovered MSM.
Sore Joints and Muscles
Testimonials of many athletes attest to the ability of MSM to increase athletic stamina and eliminate sore muscles! MSM increases the ability of the body
to eliminate wastes and toxins from the cells.
Tagamet covers up the symptoms, doing nothing to relieve the problem. MSM corrects the problem.
Migraine Headaches
Women don’t have the headaches, hot flashes, cramps and nausea associated with the monthly premenstrual cycle when using MSM. Even migraine headaches melt away.
Allergic Reactions
MSM is anti-venom that can quickly bind foreign proteins resulting from snakebites, black widow bites, flea bites, bee stings and mosquito bites.
MSM is also an anti-oxidant that detoxifies the body.
Candida albacans (Yeast) Infections; Chronic Fatigue
Candida is yeast that normally lives in the colon. If body pH is in check, Candida cannot live outside the colon. Women sometimes get Candida yeast infections. When the doctor prescribes an antibiotic, taking the antibiotic causes an imbalance in the body’s pH and greatly reduces Lactobacillus acidophilus. This promotes spreading of Candida, resulting in an infection. Upon return to the doctor, more antibiotics are prescribed resulting in an ongoing cycle of infection. The infection spreads to the mouth evidenced by the white coating typically seen on the tongue – this is called thrush. It can even get into the brain. When this happens, the term for this infection is changed to epilepsy. In the blood, Candida will rob the nutrition and energy from the body, causing a so-called ‘incurable disease’, commonly called chronic fatigue. When the body burns energy it produces toxins. If toxins are not properly removed, the result is the ‘incurable disease’. MSM can facilitate in the body’s ability to combat this infection.
High Cholesterol
When taking adequate supplementation of MSM, the body will function like it is supposed to, thus eliminating the concern for cholesterol content. Your body will regulate it naturally. When supplemented by MSM, one can eat those foods he/she enjoys while cholesterol count remains normal.
Diverticulosis is the condition where the large intestine gets sluggish, clogged and quits pulsing properly. The feces stop moving properly, and nutrition is not passed through the intestine walls. MSM smoothes the coating of the intestine with a Teflon-like coating, allowing feces to pass easily through the intestine. Diverticulosis is an MSM and vitamin C deficiency.
