Build Strong Connective Tissue for Healthy, Flexible Joints and Comfortable Movement
Involved in functions of hemoglobin, insulin hormone, adrenal hormones, enzymes and antibodies.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a metabolite of the compound dimethyl-sulfoxide (DMSO) that comprises 34 percent elemental sulfur.
Sulfur keeps hair glossy and smooth, helps maintain a youthful appearance of skin and complexion, needed for collagen synthesis, combines with nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen to build protein, aids the liver in the secretion of bile.
Sulfur acts to disinfect the blood and it helps the body to resist bacteria. Aids in the oxidation reactions of the body, while stimulating bile secretion. Considered to be an anti-aging wellrient, due to it's ability to protect against the harmful effects of radiation and pollution. Sulfur is found in hemoglobin and body tissues, and is a principal protein that gives the skin its structural integrity. Sulfur makes garlic to be known as the "king of herbs", because of its in general therapeutic values.
Sulfur is the flexible bond, holding your cells together making your skin look good without wrinkles. Before your body can use the water-soluble sulfur, you need vitamin C. Your body cannot absorb vitamin C unless it has water-soluble copper. your body cannot absorb copper unless it has zinc. Grape seed extract, selenium, and green tea are antioxidants and have properties similar to vitamin C.
Because sulfur in its pure form is extremely noble, it is difficut to get it in a water-soluble form, making it scarce in nature. Lorenzo's oil as described in the movie "Lorenzo's Oil" had a water-soluble sulfur base. Sulfur oil may be the ingredient that repairs the Milan sheath. Damage to the Milan sheath causes the shaking condition in palsy, multiple scleroses, Lorenzo's disease and many other disease conditions, where there is an uncontrollable motor function.
Deficiency of water-soluble sulfur can lead to a variety of conditions ranging from skin irritations and rashes to total breakdown of cellular regeneration. for example; have you ever wondered why your pets love to go out and chew on the grass and scratch incessantly even though they do not have fleas? these are signs your pets are deficient in water-soluble sulfur. Consistent scratching is an attempt to relieve the pain caused by a loss of nutritional sulfur, which provided the flexible bond in the skin tissue and has now resulted in dry brittle skin. It is why caged birds pull out there feathers. You will not find birds in the wild pulling out there feathers. Caged birds pull out there feathers in an attempt to relieve the pain of dry cracking skin.
Nutritional sulfur is required by many functions of the body. for example production of insulin requires sulfur in its molecular structure and numerous proteins. Protein catalyst and enzymes incorporate sulfur into their molecular framework. Proper protein synthesis can only be achieved with water-soluble sulfur, maintaining the correct molecular framework for soft, connective tissue throughout the human body.
Proper water-soluble sulfur are useful in protecting the body when exposed to radiation. individuals with symptoms of pain and inflammation associated with the various musculoskeletal system disorders including arthritis report substantial and long lasting relief. A combination of sulfur and vitamin C reported a greater benefit. This combination was especially useful in correcting leg cramps in athletes who experience leg cramps during sports activities. Migraine sufferers also obtained substantial relief. Arthritic patients report relief from pain and stiffness as well as reduced swelling and inflammation.
Subjects with chronic to sever allergies to environmental materials such as house dust, pollen, wool, animal hair, feathers and other divers allergies have reported substantial to complete relief of there symptoms. Allergy symptoms ranged from respiratory congestion to inflammation, itching muccoid discharges, and general discomfort.
Water-soluble sulfur is further necessary for collagen synthesis in skin, hair, and nails, keeping cells from becoming ridged. Furthermore Sulfur softens tissues, relieves stress, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, constipation, and candida. It detoxifies the body and increases blood circulation, reduces muscle cramps and back pain, removing inflammation, permitting muscles to heal, increasing energy, mental calmness and the ability to concentrate. Water-soluble sulfur further scavenges free radicals, relieves allergies to foods and pollens, helping the liver produce choline and controls acidity in the stomach ulcers. Sulfur coats the intestinal tract so parasites lose the ability to hang on. It helps with hypersensitivity to drugs, increasing the body's ability to produce insulin. It is important for carbohydrate metabolism and speeds wound healing. It has also been helpful in stopping urinary tract infections and constipation problems
Organic sulfur is one of the most abundant minerals found in all living organisms. Sulfur compounds provide critical building blocks for proteins which form the bonds that hold connective tissue together. They also provide essential building blocks for collagen, a primary constituent of cartilage. Cartilage is a form of connective tissue that permits motion of the joints and acts as a shock absorber.
MSM can help maintain healthy connective tissue and collagen, and promote a healthy inflammatory response. MSM also enhances cellular health by providing the sulfur source for the amino acid cysteine – a precursor of the powerful antioxidant glutathione – within the body.

Relief of scleroderma
A blind study, published in the International Journal of Anti-Aging Medicine, was conducted by Ronald Lawrence, M.D., at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine, and involved 16 patients over a 4-month study. The patients ranged in age from 55 to 78 and were randomly assigned to two groups. One group of ten patients was given 2,250 mg/day of MSM while the placebo group received a pill that matched the MSM in appearance and taste. The patients in the MSM group reported an average 60 percent improvement in symptoms of joint pain and arthritis at four weeks; at six weeks it was 82 percent. The placebo group reported an average of 20-percent improvement at four weeks and 18 percent at six weeks.
"In this study and in my general clinical experience, I find that many patients taking MSM notice substantial relief of pain within three to four weeks," wrote Lawrence in The Miracle of MSM. "As a result, I have often been able to reduce the dosage and sometimes eliminate the use of strong hydrocodone painkillers." This pain relieving ability is significant for arthritis sufferers.
For centuries, mankind has soaked in sulfur-rich mineral hot springs to help heal a variety of ailments. While sulfur's natural anti-inflammatory properties have shown benefits for a range of health problems, including arthritis, muscle and joint pain, much is still unknown about how sulfur works in the body.
MSM is as a naturally occurring, white crystalline form of sulfur. In weight, it makes up approximately 0.25% of the human body. MSM is odorless, tasteless, water-soluble compound comprises 85% of the organic sulfur in all living organisms.
Naturally found in a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains and in animals including: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, eggs, fish, needs, soybeans, garlic, kale, turnips, garlic and wheat germ.
Thiamine (vitamin B1), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and biotin
Deficiencies Caused by:
A diet lacking in protein could produce a sulfur deficiency.
Deficiency Signs or Symptoms:
Deficiencies in Sulfur (MSM) may result in degeneration of cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, Intervertebral Disc Problems, Lupus, several collagen diseases, sickle cell anemia, scratching.
Sulfur taken in the form of cysteine should be taken with vitamin C, otherwise kidney or bladder stones could develop. Vitamin C keeps cysteine from converting into cystine, which can cause these stones. Evidence points out that cysteine can inhibit insulin sensitivity, so diabetics should only use it as a supplement under the supervision of their health care provider. Cysteine taken with vitamin C can also produce symptoms of toxicity such as dizziness and incoherence.
