MSM (methysulfonylmethane) is a completely natural, nontoxic pain reliever with other health promoting properties. It is naturally occurring in food (though processing destroys most MSM in food), and is even a natural component of our plasma. It can be used for a variety of conditions and complaints, from supporting healthy skin to relieving heartburn, allergies, arthritis and pain conditions like fibromyalgia.
What makes MSM different from NSAID medications?
NSAIDs are responsible for over 20,000 deaths and 100,000 hospitalizations in the US each year. Unlike NSAIDs, MSM is absolutely safe, even in large doses. Also unlike other pain relievers, MSM is a harmless natural substance that can be used with no problem along with a variety of pain medicines. To date, there has been no evidence that MSM interacts or interferes with any medications.
How does it work? MSM supports health and relieves pain by providing the body with sulfur, which is needed for the production of collagen, the main component of cartilage, skin and connective tissue.
