MSM is an organic sulfur compound and Sulfur is in over 150 different compounds in our body and there are virtually sulfur compounds in every body cell. In addition Sulfur improves our body's capability to produce its own antioxidants.
Sulfur is one of the most important nutrients for our body, to help maintain our youth and energy. With the increasing interest in anti-aging products, MSM has become well known for the amazing benefits it contains as listed below.
1. Improves Skin, Hair, Nail Health and Complexion
MSM contains large amounts of sulfur, which is necessary for collagen and keratin production - both are vital for healthy skin, hair, and nails. MSM and Vitamin C together build new and healthy tissues which can normalize collagen formation that could drastically improve skin, hair, and nail health. That's why MSM is often referred to as the "beauty mineral."
MSM can enhance the thickness and strength of hair and nails in a very short time. Also, research shows that MSM is very effective in the treatment of some skin conditions such as:
2. Bone and joint care
MSM is a necessary nutrient in our bone and joint health, which helps conditions such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis. Also, MSM increases capability of our body to break up unhealthy Calcium (Ca) deposits in our body that are the main reason for degenerative diseases.
Another benefit of MSM is joint flexibility, flexible skin and muscle tissue. In addition, MSM reduces pain, swelling, and stiffness.
3. Detoxifies the body
MSM is highly effective in increasing the ability of cells to flush out excess fluids and toxins, which is also known as "permeability". By flushing out toxins from the cells, there is room created for essential nutrients and hydration to move in and this process improves the overall functionality of your cell membranes, which have the main task of protecting the cells from its surroundings.
In addition, MSM helps the body get rid of lactic acid and other toxins that cause pain and soreness . This will also provide more energy in our body, which we talk about in more detail in next paragraph.
4. Naturally Increases energy
Another benefit of higher permeability is better efficiency. Since the cells flush out the toxins and don't have to deal with that. Therefore, they use less energy to deal with toxins and have more energy to use towards other activities such as digestion and healing. In addition, our body spends anywhere between 60-80% of its energy to digest food everyday and due to detoxification process it becomes easier to digest food and absorb nutrients. Moreover, our cells become more efficient and wastes less energy in unnecessary activities and because of that there are some more benefits for having more efficient body such as:
- Improves conditions such asthma and allergies
- Improve our body pH level and makes our body more alkaline
- Helps cure gastrointestinal issues such as diarrhea, nausea, constipation and hyperacidity
- Improves conditions like cramps and muscular pain, especially in athletes
- Heals carpal tunnel syndrome
- Balances your blood sugar
- Reduces overall stress levels
