MSM (16 products)


Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM) is the organic, biologically active form of sulphur appears in nature in all living organisms.


Sulphur is an element found in all body cells but most concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones. It is required for the proper assimilation of the sulphur containing amino acids methionine and cysteine. Sulphur is required in the formation of many proteins and enzymes. Unfortunately, MSM in foods is mostly lost during food processing, storage and cooking. Levels of sulphur in the body decline with age and deficiencies can contribute to dry flaky skin, dry brittle hair and flaky brittle nails.


Deficiencies in biological sulphur can result in less than optimal functioning of each cell, tissue and organ in the body. When sulphur levels are lacking due to ageing or poor diet, then dry flaky skin, dry brittle hair and flaky brittle nails can result.


MSM is also known as “nature’s beauty mineral”, because sulphur is necessary to produce collagen and keratin, helping keep the skin smooth and youthful.


MSM contributes to normal immune function and accelerates healing of tissue. MSM is also involved in various liver functions including detoxification processes, and the production of glutathione.


Supplementing with 100% pure crystalline MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) may improve joint cartilage function and reduce of inflammation. Often a natural arthritis formula will combine glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, and anti-inflammatory herbs in the one tablet for maximum therapeutic effect.

  • Health of connective tissue, muscles, ligaments and tendons.
  • Reduction in muscle cramping and tension.
  • Healthy appearance of skin, hair and nails.
  • Normal immune function.
  • Detoxification
