MSM is a naturally forming compound found in humans, animals and a variety of primitive plants and can also be found in the atmosphere above marine areas. An essential element — biologically active sulphur — and an alkaline PH buffer, Sulfur is a critical component of our diet, helping us to maintain youthful energy and agility.
As we age, we become stiff, less agile and experience a decrease in energy. However, it does not have to be that way. MSM, an organic sulfur compound that is naturally derived during the rain cycle, has garnered a lot of attention as an anti-ageing and longevity compound. Sulfur was once abundant in natural unprocessed foods, however, due to depleted soIl and over-cooking our vegetables, and not eating any vegetables at all, Sulphur deficiency is on the rise.
MSM is calcium phosphate dissolver. It is calcium phosphate crystals that cover the pineal gland, causing calcification, and preventing it from functioning correctly. MSM has an exceptional ability to break down calcium that has escaped from the bones and taken refuge in our bodies tissues and pineal gland. Volatile calcium is also a root cause of degenerative diseases such as arthritis.
In the bid to decalcify the pineal gland, MSM is an imperative and irreplaceable compound with super decalcification properties. Roll on Third Eye Activation.
Scientific name – Methylsulfonylmethane
Other scientific names – methyl sulfone and dimethyl sulfone
Stanley W. Jacob administered MSM to over 18,000 patients who presented with a variety of physical health complaints and ailments. Jacob co-authored a book purporting the healing and health benefits of MSM and it’s bio-available and biologically active sulfur.
Bioavailable Sulfur can easily be found in foods such as onions and garlic. Sulphur is also readily available in cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli, and in certain protein-containing foods, for example, nuts, seeds and milk. We can also find Sulfur in eggs.
MSM supplementation is most popularly to help reduce the symptoms of arthritis but is also popular in the treatment and alleviation of many other ailments.
Applied topically: MSM has been reported to help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, calm angry or itchy scar tissue, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, alleviate sunburn and help to treat abrasions and cuts.
Taken orally: MSM has been reported to be effective in treating Osteoporosis, muscle cramping and muscular soreness (DOMS) after athletic or gym training. Reduce inflammation of joints and muscles, rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, premenstrual syndrome, inflammation of mucous membranes, and boost immunity.
An invaluable anti-inflammatory, let us delve deeper into the science-backed health benefits of MSM.
Alleviate Joint and Muscle Pain
MSM has clinically demonstrated the ability to directly benefit people who suffer from joint pain and joint degeneration, in any area of the body including the hips, knees, hands and back. Aside from MSM’s natural anti-inflammatory qualities, it can also relieve soreness in the joints, reduce stiffness, therefore, helping to increase mobility, and due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce swelling too. This is mainly due to Sulfur, the organic compound present in MSM. Sulfur helps to create glutathione, a powerful anti-inflammatory compound which our body naturally produces in abundant quantities. Glutathione is an antioxidant which helps us to forge a strong immune system and stave off the type of physical degeneration associated with ageing. In clinical studies, Glutathione was able to inhibit the breakdown of cartilage, an important factor when trying to avoid arthritis. It is imperative that our body produces adequate amounts of glutathione, so as to keep our immune equipped and able to fight off free-radicals and protect us from oxidative stress, joint degeneration, tissue and muscle damage, infections, all of which can negatively impact our quality of life. In one particular placebo-controlled study, 49 participants suffering from knee osteoarthritis, were supplemented with 3.4 grams of MSM each day, over a 12 week period. Results showed a reduction in joint stiffness and pain and showed a marked improvement in physical functionality.
Speed Recovery After Hitting the Gym
MSM has been proven to help reduce muscle damage and help to limit the increases in oxidative stress associated with exhaustive muscle training. Not limiting oxidative stress associated with working our muscles hard, can result in an unnecessary amount of muscle stiffness and soreness, known as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, or DOMS for short. Athletes who experience severe DOMS can experience a temporary hindrance in athletic performance. Professional athletes who train on a daily basis would benefit from MSM as a way to reduce overall oxidative stress in their body, as an excess of oxidative stress can lead to excess inflammation in the body. A study involving18 male participants demonstrated positive results based on a 10 day period of an intake of 50 mg of MSM powder per kilogram of body weight. Exercise-induced damage to muscle tissue was significantly reduced and an increase in immune protecting antioxidant activity was also noted.
Strengthen Keratin for Hair Growth and Happy Skin
Keratin is a vital component in the structure of your hair, skin and nails. Hair contains high levels of cysteine, a sulfur-containing amino acid. MSM acts as a sulfur donor to keratin, which in turn can help to keep hair, skin and nails healthy and strong. Our hair follicles can collect calcium deposits that not only calcify the follicle but also hamper blood supply to the follicle leading to hair loss and retarded hair growth. Due to MSM’s ability to decalcify the body and break down calcium phosphate crystals, it can also dissolve the calcium deposits clogging our follicles, leading to an improved scalp/follicle blood supply and a reinstatement of healthy hair growth cycles.
