Description

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
