What is MSM?


MSM stands for MethylSulfonylMethane which is a sulfur-bearing molecule found in the fluid and tissues of all living organisms. Sulfur is one of the five elements of life and is needed to form crucial blood proteins and amino acids. Do not confuse MSM with sulfites and sulfates which are used as food preservatives and can be extremely harmful.

MSM is a totally different substance. It is present in a variety of foods, including most fresh raw fruit and vegetables, milk, meat, seafood and some grains. However, MSM is easily lost during moderate food processing.

Cooking, drying, smoking pickling and long term storage of can deplete the MSM content in food. It is unlikely that sufficient MSM is ingested into the system to contribute to the bodies nutritional sulfur requirement. If fresh food high in MSM were eaten immediately without cooking, our bodies would get the MSM they need.

Because excess amounts are excreted by the skin as an odorless substance, it is almost impossible to overdose this powerful substance.
