MSM (methylsulfonylmethane or dimethylsulfone) plays an important role in the health of our body's joints, skin, hair, nails and cartilage. Research indicates relief from joint pain, an increased range of motion and protecting the muscles from damage.

As people age, systemic inflammation can inflict degenerative effects throughout the body.1-5 A primary cause of this destructive cascade is the production of cell-signaling chemicals known as pro-inflammatory cytokines. Along with these dangerous cytokines, imbalances of hormone-like messengers called prostaglandins and leukotrienes also contribute to inflammatory processes.6-8

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane or dimethylsulfone) is a sulfur-containing molecule found in various plants and some body tissues.72-76 MSM is a vital building block of joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails. It is a natural and efficient source of the sulfur that is used by many of the body’s structural molecules.76 Some peer-reviewed clinical research in the U.S. has shown MSM is safe and effective in increasing joint comfort and supporting a normal range of motion.77-82

MSM supplementation seems to help reduce symptoms of osteoarthritis, particularly in the knee.9 Clinical trials have shown patients that took MSM had a significant decrease in pain and improved physical function.10,11 Other studies found supplementation decreased muscle damage from exercise.12
