Best MSM (1000 mg) 180 CapsBest MSM supplies pure crystalline MSM
(methylsulfonylmethane), a naturally-occuring source of organic sulfur
that is easily absorbed and used by the body. Taken up from the soil by
plants, MSM found in foods is largely lost during food processing,
storage and cooking.
- MSM supports organ and joint function by donating sulfur for
maintenance of healthy connective tissue.
- MSM helps keep skin, hair and
nails healthy by donating sulfur for products of keratin, a fibrous
- Supports joint function.
Best MSM and Best MSM Powder contain pure MSM
(methylsulfonylmethane), a white crystalline substance that occurs in
the human body and in some foods. MSM is an excellent dietary source of
bioavailable organic sulfur.
The MSM Story – One of Nature's Primary Sources of Organic Dietary Sulfur!
The human body requires a continuous supply of usable sulfur, and MSM
is one of the primary organic sulfur containing molecules for use by
living organisms. From life's earliest beginnings, primitive marine
organisms (blue-green algae and phytoplankton) have absorbed inorganic
sulfur from ocean waters and produced organic sulfur molecules,
primarily dimethyl sulfonium salts. These salts are released back into
the sea, where they are converted to dimethyl sulfide, which readily
evaporates, ending up in the upper atmosphere. Dimethyl sulfide is then
oxidized by UV light, forming DMSO and MSM.
The two compounds are
delivered to land masses in rain water, and absorbed by plants. MSM is a
stable end product of this process, and thus serves as a primary source
of sulfur in the food chain. Though present on earth since before life
appeared on dry land, and known to science since the 1950's, MSM has
only recently been recognized as having importance in human nutrition.
Why the Human Body Needs MSM
MSM occurs naturally in the blood, body fluids and tissues. It is now
believed that a minimum MSM concentration of 0.2 parts per million is
necessary for the body to function normally. MSM may be the most easily
absorbed and nontoxic source of nutritional sulfur occurring in nature.
Sulfur is a structural mineral that maintains the strength of various
tissues by forming sulfur "tie-bars" (sulfhydryl bonds) between
connective tissue proteins. MSM serves as a readily available source of
sulfur for this function, and thus helps maintain the pliancy of tissues
and cell membranes. Repair of damaged tissue depends upon a supply of
sulfur for the continuation of reactions involving sulfhydryl groups
(SH). Sulfur is required for the maintenance of healthy hair, skin and
nails. In view of the presence of MSM in biological systems since the
beginning of evolution, it is logical to assume that all higher life
forms, including humans and animals, are well adapted to use MSM as a
