“You Are What You Eat”
MSM (the abbreviation for methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is a special biological sulfur found in all plants, soils, fruits, vegetables and meats. MSM is extremely important to human beings and all other forms of life because it provides a unique dietary source of sulfur that we must have in order to function. MSM is also called Organic Sulfur.
DO NOT confuse it with the toxic, inorganic medicinal sulfur compounds or sulfites used on salad bars or sulfur dioxide used on some dried fruits. These inorganic sulfur compounds are toxic and may cause allergic reactions in many people.
Why do we need MSM?
Why do we need sulfur? Sulfur is one of the five basic elements of life. Sulfur is so critical to the formation if connective tissue that without it we would literally be shapeless pools of protoplasm! Sulfur also provides the chemical links that create collagen and keratin needed for beautiful, healthy skin, hair and nails. Sulfur is an activator of thiamine, Vitamin C, biotin, pantothenic acid. Sulfuris used by the liver to manufacture bile, a key element in digestion and is an important component in insulin production. Sulfur also is essential in maintaining the body’s crucial acid/alkaline(pH) balance. For all these reasons and more we need an abundant supply of sulfur.
But as scientists have found, the depletion of our soils and the heat and processing used in food preparation destroy or greatly reduce MSM levels in our fruits, vegetables and meats. Research has also shown that MSM levels decrease with age, resulting in symptoms of fatigue, tissue, and organ degeneration and increase susceptibility to disease. Fortunately, researchers have now developed MSM as a dietary supplement and have used it in research studies with extraordinary results!
Many brands of MSM contain fillers
Fillers like magnesium stearate are added to many commercial products for bulking purposes i.e. it fills the tubs/capsules up. One brand of MSM capsules contains 25% filler. Talc (unscented) is another popular bulking filler. If your MSM Crystals, powder or capsules contain filler – change your supplier! Health Within MSM is 100% filler free
There is a simple test which you can do to check if your MSM contains any of the basic fillers like Magnesium Stearate or talc.
How to test:
1. Dissolve the contents of about 6 capsules / four tablets or 1 (one) teaspoon of MSM in a glass of warm water.
2. The water in the glass should appear totally clear. If it has a milky or cloudy look it’s certain that it contains a filler/s.
The above test is for fillers only – silicates and flow agents do not show up using this method.
Silicates, flow agents and anti-caking agents are added commercially for product appearance and ease of packing. If the MSM flows like a free-flowing powder it is certain to contain one or more flow agents.
Pure organic MSM forms naturally into larger crystals i.e.. The powder in your container should therefore appear like white lumpy crystals that easily break up when lightly pressed. This is applicable to our Health Within MSM.
How Safe is MSM?
MSM is as safe as pure drinking water. Because of it’s inert nature, MSM is non-allergenic, non-pyretic and has no interfering or undesirable pharmacological effects.You cannot overdose with MSM. The body will use what it needs and after 12 hours, will flush any excess amounts out of the body, MSM will flush what the body does not retain semi-permanently every 12 hours and because it is a free radical and foreign protein scavenger, MSM cleans the blood stream, so allergies to food and pollens go away. To maintain good healthy cells, take MSM in the morning and evening.
You’ll find that when some vitamin material is relatively expensive that the seller is often tempted to claim that only a small amount is needed.
That is the case with MSM. Usually that is not true! Many other brands of MSM will tell you that 1000 mg or perhaps 3000 mg per day is what you should take. Unfortunately, they don’t want to tell you that you might need to take 20,000 mg per day because that would expose the high cost of their product. Powder MSM is the way to go if you can handle the taste somehow. Suggestions adding to a small amount of juice.
Because many people WILL need to take 20 grams per day. That is the same as 20,000 mg per day. If you take capsules, that would be 40! capsules per day. Very few people want to take 40 capsules of anything. So, if you are taking the capsules, keep in mind that you may need to take a lot of them to get relief from arthritic pain. If you are taking the bulk, start by recognizing that one heaping teaspoon is about 5 grams (5,000mg). We suggest you start with one teaspoon per day. If you get relief at this dosage do not increase. If you don’t see some dramatic change in the absence of pain within two days, increase the dosage. Continue gradually increasing the dosage up to 4 heaping teaspoons per day (20 grams).
Most people should achieve very dramatic relief from arthritic pain by the time they reach 20 grams of MSM per day. MSM works synergistically with Vitamin C so we recommend you take a good quality Vit C powder.
You can also use MSM in your bathwater and it will leave your skin getting smoother and smoother — and even help eliminate minor rashes, infections and skin conditions.
Use about 2 full cups of MSM in a full bathtub for a long soaking (20 minutes) bath — and don’t worry about getting it in your eyes or mouth.
