Some people use MSM to treat gastrointestinal disorders like constipation, hemorrhoids, and diverticulosis. When we are talking about gastrointestinal disorders, MSM may assist in rebuilding the lining of the digestive tract and lower inflammation/allergic reactions to certain foods. It’s also useful for healing leaky gut syndrome since MSM improves the permeability and the absorption capabilities of the cells in your intestinal tract.
Laboratory studies have found that MSM has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.(1)
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS of MSM 900
- Rebuild Gut Lining and reduce inflammation
- Needed for Glutathione Production
- Provides Natural Elemental Sulfur (34% by Weight)
- Supports Connective Tissue Health Including Cartilage and Collagen Production
- Supports Healthy Immune and Respiratory Function
- Helps Maintain Healthy Inflammatory Balance
- Maintains Healthy Skin and Hair
Sulfur is an essential element for all of life and is naturally found in foods such as garlic and onions, as well as protein containing foods, such as poultry, fish and eggs. Sulfur ranks as the third-highest substance by weight in the body’s chemistry, behind water and gases, and plays a major role in maintaining the body’s overall health. In recent years, the typical American diet has progressively declined in sulfur content, leaving many susceptible to depletion.
The concentration of MSM in the body also decreases with age, making it difficult for the body to generate new cells. MSM contains about 34% sulfur by weight, making it an ideal supplement for those that want to naturally increase their sulfur levels and obtain its significant health benefits. Sulfur plays a major role in the body’s detoxification and antioxidant pathways. Without sulfur, the body’s major antioxidant, glutathione, cannot work.
Supporting glutathione production is crucial for protecting against oxidative damage secondary to free radical activity and maintaining healthy liver detoxification. Research has shown that supplementation with MSM significantly supports connective tissue health and promotes normal levels of inflammation, which is crucial for maintaining healthy joints, skin and hair.
Connective Tissue and Joint Health†
Several studies have examined the effects of Methylsulfonylmethane on joint and connective tissue health. A randomized study of 118 patients provided subjects with either 500 mg of glucosamine, 500 mg of MSM, both glucosamine and MSM, or placebo capsules, three times daily for 12 weeks.
The researchers found that glucosamine, MSM, and the combination of the two helped to maintain connective tissue and joint health, compared to placebo. MSM was particularly helpful in supporting joint comfort and maintaining healthy fluid levels. An additional randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial including 49 men and women, 40-76 years of age, examined the effects of 3 g Methylsulfonylmethane given twice per day, or placebo, for 12 weeks. In this study, MSM was also shown to support joint comfort and physical function, compared to placebo.
Studies have also found that MSM supports respiratory and immune health during seasonal challenges. Among 55 subjects given 2,600 mg of MSM orally per day for 30 days, MSM was shown to support respiratory health beginning on day seven of the trial. In addition, energy levels increased significantly by day 14 and continued to do so through day 30.
Skin and Hair Health†
As a source of bio-available sulfur, MSM helps maintain disulfide bonds that keep collagen strands strong and preserves connective tissue pliancy, which is crucial for supporting healthy skin. MSM has been shown to significantly increase plasma glutathione levels, an additional benefit in maintaining skin’s defensive mechanisms against oxidative stress. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study examining the effects of MSM on 46 patients affected with facial redness, it was shown that MSM helped support skin texture, skin color and hydration.
