MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane to use its church name) is an organic compound that is naturally present in some animals, humans included, and plants. Bioavailable sulphur is an essential element that the body requires every day to promote and support healthy tissues and joints.
With the world that we find ourselves in being inundated with processed foods, we may not be getting the amounts of sulphur that the body needs for healthy connective tissue. A lack of sulphur, or reduced amounts, can present itself as skin and joint problems.
The MSM compound can be found in all of the fluids and tissues of the body, and it is vital for the health of many different types of cell function. It also helps with the production of enzymes and proteins, as well as helping with the absorption of amino acids that contain sulphur.
Sulphur itself plays a very important role in the production of nails, skin and hair. When sulphur levels are reduced, whether that is through poor diet or age, then this can show in dry and brittle hair, brittle nails and dry and flaky skin. Sulphur is also present in ligaments, tendons, muscle tissue, bone and cartilage. Because MSM levels decrease with age, supplements such as MSM Powder by Advanced Medicine Australia can become very beneficial.
MSM is also useful as an antioxidant and comes with protein production ability which can inhibit inflammation, provides pain relief and can help with the healing of damaged tissue while helping to improve blood circulation.
