Description

Methyl-Sulphonyl-Methane, or MSM for abbreviation purposes, is a natural chemical that occurs in green plants, animals and humans. The chemical is a natural source of Sulphur which is the fourth most abundant mineral in our body. 34% of MSM's composition is made up of Sulphur, making MSM the richest source of Sulphur available to us. MSM naturally occurs in foods in very small amounts, making supplements a more effective method at attaining MSM. Foods that do include MSM include fruit, corn, tomatoes, tea, coffee and milk. Sulphur is found in a wider array of foods, including seafood, eggs, cheese, milk, walnuts, almonds, peaches and garlic.

Benefits

MSM is required in the production of glycosaminoglycans, a viscous sugar that lubricates joints. Sulphur is also needed for several amino acids such as methionine and cysteine, hence why Sulphur is often found in protein-rich foods. These amino acids produce enzymes which are critical for bodily functions and without Sulphur, these enzymes may be lacking. Sulphur is also present in glutathione, an antioxidant which protects DNA, lipids and proteins from oxidative damage which has a harmful effect.
