MSM is an abbreviation for methyl sulfoyl methane - an organic sulphur compound that naturally occurs in the human body and is required for a variety of body processes. Organic sulphur is an essential component of many endogenous compounds including the sulfur-containing amino acids, hormones such as insulin, numerous enzymes and the strongest endogenous antioxidant called glutathione. If the body lacks sufficient amounts of organic sulphur, the production of these important compounds will be impaired.
As with many other essential nutrients, a lack of organic sulphur is more widespread than most people would believe. Reasons for this include an unhealthy diet and decreasing sulphur concentrations in the soil. In addition, organic sulphur is sensitive to heat and cold, and because of this a large portion of the organic sulphur contained in our food will be destroyed during preparation of food and freezing. Since organic sulphur is involved in many body processes and essential for the production of different structural tissues, a lack of sulphur can lead to a variety of symptoms. Among the most common ones are anxiety, depression, liver problems, circulatory disorders, joint pain and a reduced joint, reduced immune function, loose connective tissue, blunt hair, pale skin and brittle fingernails. The body also requires organic sulphur to produce the strongest endogenous antioxidant called glutathione, which protects the cells of your body from free radical damage. If the body can not produce sufficient amounts of glutathione due to a lack of sulphur, this protection of the cells of your body is no longer sufficient, leading to an impaired immune function and a higher susceptibility for infections.
In addition to this, a lack of organic sulphur can lead to an increased degradation of the essential amino acid methionine, is responsible for the transport of selenium in the human body. Since selenium is important for the function of your immune system, an insufficient selenium supply caused by a methionine deficiency can severely impair the function of your immune system
MSM is often used for treating joint complaints such as osteoarthritis, inflammation of the joints, joint pain and reduced joint mobility. MSM can lead to a reduction of symptoms of joint complaints and improvements of joint health through a variety of different mechanisms. These mechanisms include, among others, the pronounced anti-inflammatory properties of MSM, which can effectively alleviate inflammatory pain in connection with arthritis, inflammations of the joints and other joint complaints. But MSM can do much more than simply alleviate joint pain. Organic sulphur is an essential component of the articular cartilage and involved in articular lubrication, which ensures painless joint movements. A deficiency of organic sulphur can therefore affect regeneration and health of your joints. This is supported by scientific investigations that show that the articular cartilage of arthrosis patients contains only a fraction of the sulphur concentration of healthy joints. An adequate sulphur supply in form of MSM not only improves joint regeneration, but also inhibits the formation of enzymes that degrade the articular cartilage. This will result in healthier and more resilient joints and can effectively prevent cartilage degradation. In addition, MSM neutralizes free radicals, which can permanently damage your joints and also stimulates the regeneration of connective tissue by stimulating collagen formation. Many studies conducted with MSM have shown that an MSM supplementation can significantly reduce joint pain and greatly improve the mobility of affected joints. The perceived reduction in joint pain was between 60 and 80%.
MSM is a compound that can also be of particular interest to people suffer from allergies. Scientific studies have shown that symptoms of hay fever, food allergies, house dust allergies and allergies to animal hair were significantly reduced after only a few days of MSM supplementation. The subjects reported a reduction of their allergy symptoms after only 7 days, whereby this reduction continued with increasing time of MSM supplementation. Organic sulphur is also important for a healthy digestion, a healthy stomach and a healthy intestinal tract. It improves intestinal function and promotes a healthy intestinal environment in which fungi and intestinal parasites can not flourish, while at the same time regulating stomach acid production and counteracting different digestive problems. In addition, MSM also promotes the absorption of nutrients into the cells and the removal of toxic metabolic waste products as it improves the permeability of cell membranes. Furthermore, organic sulphur is an important component of numerous enzymes responsible for detoxification of your body, which relieves your liver and promotes the degradation and excretion of toxic substances. There is also evidence that MSM can inhibit the growth of cancer and support cancer treatment. Among other things, an oxygen enrichment of blood and tissue promoted by MSM is responsible for this, since cancer cells can not grow and thrive well in an oxygen-rich environment. Further studies have shown that MSM can inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells and makes metastases of different types of cancer more vulnerable to the desired effects of chemotherapy. Especially for women it is interesting to note that organic sulphur promotes healthy skin, healthy hair and strong nails, as it promotes the formation of collagen, elastin and keratin, while a lack of organic sulphur reduces the skin's elasticity, makes nails brittle and can lead to brittle, dull hair.
Even though athletes use MSM primarily because of its positive effects on joints, this compound can have many other benefits for athletes. MSM can accelerate the recovery of your muscles post workout, alleviate muscle soreness, and promote recovery from sports injuries. The latter aspect is particularly interesting because many athletes have an increased risk of pulling a muscle due to an overload of muscles and tendons. After the occurrence of a sports injury, pause from exercise is often needed, in order to prevent further injuries and to promote recovery and healing. Since MSM can support and accelerate the healing process, this off time can be minimized, if you supplement with MSM.
In addition, MSM has pronounced antioxidant effects which can prevent damage to muscle cells induced by free radicals that are produced during intensive workouts. Scientific studies have shown that MSM can significantly reduce the markers for cell damage and muscle damage post workout. This means that MSM can accelerate the recovery of muscles after exercise. Because of this you will be ready sooner for the next brutal workout. However, a complete suppression of free radicals is not desirable, since free radicals also produce desirable inflammatory responses which promote the healing process and gains of muscle mass. Since MSM indirectly exhibits its antioxidant effects by a natural increase of the levels of endogenous antioxidants, excessive levels of free radicals will be reduced to a healthy level without blocking their desirable effects.
