1. the important sulfur compound MSM

MSM is an organic sulfur compound. It is a vital element and essential for the human organism. Humans consist of 0.2% sulfur. At first glance, 0.2% does not sound very much, however, MSM is present in the human organism in large quantities compared to other elements. For example, the body contains five times more sulfur than magnesium.

MSM is the abbreviation for methylsulfonylmethane, but is also known as dimethylsulfone. MSM can supply the human organism with valuable natural sulfur. In the process, MSM participates in the formation of various amino acids. If the body lacks glutathione due to a sulphur deficiency, oxidative stress and a weak immune system can result. For this reason, one should always pay attention to a sufficient MSM supply.

MSM is particularly important for the body's own protein. This is built up by sulphur-containing amino acids. Sulphur bridges define spatial structures for enzymes and proteins. Without sulphur, these enzymes and proteins would be inactive. Then their original functions could no longer be fulfilled.

    2. functions of MSM

    Many different effects are attributed to MSM. MSM can help with:

    • Stomach acidity
    • Allergies
    • digestive disorders
    • various inflammations of the body
    • pain in joints and muscles
    • promotion of antioxidant effects
    • inhibition of cancer cells

    3. the daily requirement of MSM

    The daily requirement of MSM varies according to gender. Men should take in about 600 milligrams of MSM daily. Women, on the other hand, only need a daily ration of 500-600 milligrams. One should generally always keep in mind that age, weight and height always play a significant role. Furthermore, factors such as diet and lifestyle should be taken into consideration. MSM is mainly found in protein-rich foods.

    4. MSM in the form of dietary supplements

    MSM should normally be absorbed by the body on a daily basis. The best way, of course, is through a healthy and balanced diet. Particularly large amounts of MSM are found in protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, shrimp, milk and eggs. Only very small amounts of MSM can be found in plant foods. These include onions, garlic and wild garlic. Many people find it very difficult to cover the complete requirement of important building materials in the human organism. In this case MSM should be taken in addition in order to be sufficiently supplied with MSM. MSM is available in the form of dietary supplements. They are offered in the form of MSM capsules and MSM tablets. Both forms are easy to use and enter the circulation quickly. However, MSM tablets are sold in pharmacies, which in many cases contain artificial additives or have been manufactured abroad. MSM capsules often contain only the active ingredient in a vegetable cellulose shell and can therefore be produced without fillers.
