MSM Highlight

Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM, is a powerful anti-inflammatory sulfur derivative that is one of the key ingredients in our S.O.S. Gummy. MSM is best known for its ability to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.  Below, we will take a deeper dive into where MSM comes from, what it does, and how it can help you achieve glowing skin.  


Where does MSM come from?

MSM is made from organic sulfur that can be found in fruits, vegetables and grains.  When sulfur bonds with carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen molecules, an inert white crystalline compound is created that is easily digestible.  This is MSM.  Although you can get MSM through diet, that alone will not provide the amount necessary to make a difference.  That is why taking a supplement is recommended for optimal health.


What are the health benefits of MSM?

MSM is an anti-inflammatory that is often used for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, and tenosynovitis.  It is also  believed to help with gastrointestinal issues such as constipation, hemorrhoids, and diverticulosis and can aid in promoting healthy skin.  

MSM is extremely vital for supporting many different functions within the body.  It has been shown to repair cell structure and reduce free radicals in the body that speed up the aging process.  Also, sulfur is the third most abundant element in our body, particularly our skin, nails, and hair.  Sulfur is in MSM and is crucial for your body's ability to produce collagen and protein.  


How can MSM help with Eczema?

MSM can act as a sulfur donor to keratin.  Since keratin is the main structural component in our skin, this will help to promote cell growth.  MSM has also been shown to reduce inflammation.  Ths can help to minimize some of the side effects of eczema like redness and irritated skin.
