One: What is MSM?

Methylsulfonylmethane (short MSM) is organically bound sulfur, which is mainly found in muscles, skin and bones. It belongs to the group of sulphones and is an essential component of the human body. The element sulphur plays an important role for the human organism and for humans in general. The bulk element participates in the formation of various amino acids. These are called cysteine and methionine. Methylsulfonylmethane participates in the formation of all protein compounds and also plays an important role in the body's enzymes, as these build on the amino acids.

2. the positive effect of MSM in the body

MSM is an organic sulfur compound that is largely found in muscles, skin and bones. This organic sulphur compound also occurs in the environment, in plants and animals. It is a relatively new substance on the market of food supplements, therefore no health-related statements have yet been made according to the EC decision of the European Parliament. In health guides and various field reports or blogs, MSM capsules are attributed to be effective against inflammatory reactions, pain, joint and musculoskeletal disorders, digestive disorders, urinary tract diseases, allergies and autoimmune diseases, as well as to alleviate discomfort caused by sports injuries. The human organism needs sulphur in the form of sulphurous amino acids. Those who eat a high-protein diet receive a sufficient supply of the amino acids and thus the supply of sulphur is guaranteed. However, in various situations (e.g. people who do a lot of sport or who suffer from diseases) there is an increased need for sulphur intake. Here, the intake of MSM in the form of food supplements can help.

Overview of the effects of MSM:

  • Anti-inflammatory
    MSM inhibits different messenger substances of an inflammation and can thus prevent further damage.

  • Painkillers
    The intake of MSM provides significant pain relief in diseases such as athrose. The sulphur compound can be used in a variety of ways to relieve pain.

  • Antioxidant
    Methylsulfonylmethane inhibits the formation of free oxygen radicals.

3. dosage and intake of MSM

Methylsulfonylmethane is an organic sulfur compound that occurs naturally. This means that tomatoes, coffee or cereal products, for example, contain small amounts of MSM. Anyone taking MSM in the form of food supplements should pay particular attention to the correct dosage. This is because there are also big differences in the quality of MSM capsules on the market. Our Vitamin Owl® MSM capsules contain a total of 600mg of pure methylsulfonylmethane per capsule. These are completely free of additives. The capsule shell consists of cellulose. The product is suitable for allergy sufferers and sugar-free. It does not contain gluten or lactose. MSM should be taken with water or juice. Those who take too many capsules do not need to worry. The human organism excretes the excess sulphur again. An overdose is not possible.

4. what happens if the body is supplied with too little sulphur?

Sulphur is needed for the production of glutathione. If the brain is not sufficiently supplied with nutrients, the glutathione level drops. This deficiency can weaken the defence and immune system. The human organism needs antioxidants for detoxification to fight free radicals. If this no longer works, a sulphur deficiency and other disorders can result:

  • Allergies
  • Skin diseases
  • Deflections
  • Lack of concentration
  • susceptibility to colds and infections
  • Tiredness
  • Moods

5. how does a sulphur deficiency become apparent?

Signs of a sulphur deficiency:

  • Tensions
  • Back Pain
  • Sore muscles
  • Stiffness
  • joint pain
  • Diseases like Athrose

6th MSM capsules or MSM tablets?

MSM is offered in the form of capsules and tablets. These forms are easy to handle and get into circulation quickly. However, MSM tablets are sold in pharmacies, which in many cases have been manufactured with artificial additives or abroad. MSM capsules often contain only the active ingredient in a vegetable cellulose shell and can therefore be produced without fillers. In general, it should always be ensured that the product has been produced in Germany in order to guarantee a consistently high preparation quality.
