What is MSM?
MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane, is actually a form of mineral, and it is the fourth most abundant natural mineral located within the human body. It is a form of sulphur and in supplement form, is found as an odourless white powder. Not only is it naturally present in the body, it is also plant-based and is found in many vegetarian sources, as well as in seafood sources, some types of dairy, and even in coffee and tea. As the body can produce it naturally, it is considered non-essential, though numerous experts and research has found that increasing your daily intake of this nutrient can be incredibly beneficial.
How does it work?
MSM works in a variety of different ways, because it has the ability to provide so many different health and wellness benefits to the human body. In the body for example, MSM is naturally present in a person’s blood, and in their spinal fluid, and what’s more, as it is rich in sulphur, it has been found to assist with protein synthesis, as it helps to enhance the production of proteins found naturally within a person’s hair, and in their muscles. What’s more, the sulphur it contains has also been found to help to boost liver health and function, as it helps to detoxify the liver and remove heavy metals which could potentially be toxic, from your system. The compound possesses a number of anti-inflammatory properties, making it ideal for people suffering from chronic pain brought on by inflammation in and around the joints, arthritis for example. The anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce inflammation and can therefore provide very effective pain-relieving effects in the process.
What are the benefits of MSM supplements
Some of the primary benefits associated with MSM supplements include the following:
Treats arthritis and similar conditions
As mentioned, MSM supplements provide very potent anti-inflammatory benefits to the human body, helping to reduce pain and swelling brought on via inflammation. This makes it ideal for treating conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and tendinitis.
Another fantastic benefit associated with MSM is the fact that it has been found to be such a beneficial supplement for the treatment and prevention of allergies, especially hay fever during the spring and summer months. This is because MSM greatly reduces the amount of histamine produced by the body, which is a highly inflammatory substance that is responsible for a great deal of allergic reactions. Studies have found that MSM can reduce histamine production, it can clear airways and nasal passages, and it can even help to increase energy levels as well.
MSM also helps to boost the immune system, meaning that it can help to provide protection against illness and disease, in a number of different ways. This means that it can help protect against the common cold.
Other benefits include:
- Treats and prevents headaches
