Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (OptiMSM) is a source of bioavailable sulphur, an essential element found in the body and needed every day for healthy joints and tissues. Modern food processing techniques and other factors may reduce the availability of sulphur required for healthy connective tissue and this may be reflected in joint and skin problems.
Contains patented OptiMSM™, a bio-available and natural form of essential dietary Sulphur in a high strength orange flavoured powder. Assists in the reduction of pain, inflammation and swelling of injured or aged joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. Benefits arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia. Accelerates the healing of fractures and scar tissue. Benefits the healthy growth of, and prevents the ageing of, hair, nails and skin Has a beneficial effect on digestive function problems of constipation, reflux and heartburn, parasites, intestinal hyperpermeability
- Healthy joint cartilage function
- Joint discomfort associated with inflammation, and joints and tendons swelling
- Maintaining the health and healing of connective tissue, collagen, ligament and tendons

MSM is a natural form of sulphur, which is one of the principal elements found naturally in the body. MSM is found in all the tissues and fluids of the body and is essential for many types of healthy cell function. It is required for the proper assimilation of the sulphur containing amino acids methionine and cysteine, and is required in the formation of many proteins and enzymes. It is also found in major structural molecules in the body such as cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments and muscle tissue. Levels of MSM in the body decline with age, resulting in symptoms of fatigue, tissue and organ malfunction and an increased susceptibility to disease.
MSM has a strong antioxidant activity and protein building function, which suppresses inflammation, provides substantial relief from the symptoms of pain, aids the rapid healing of tissues and improves blood circulation.
Sulphur is an important part of the construction of skin, hair and nails. When sulphur levels are lacking due to ageing or poor diet, then dry flaky skin, dry brittle hair and flaky brittle nails are the result.
MSM improves the health and function of the cells which line the digestive tract, as well as enhancing certain enzyme functions. Chronic problems with indigestion, constipation, food intolerances and allergies can benefit from MSM.
Ingredients: Per 1.7g Serve:
|MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane)||1250mg|
|Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)||300mg|
Dosage: Adults: Take 1 serve - approx. half a teaspoon (1.7g) in a glass of water. Drink immediately, morning and night. Up to 3 serves daily can be taken.
MSM takes a while to build up in the system depending on the severity of your health problem. Allow from 2 to 6 weeks to see results. We also recommend lifestyle changes to speed this process. Avoiding caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, salt and white refined carbohydrates, and increasing the intake of fruits, vegetables and protein foods can assist the healing process.
Cautions: Many individuals with allergies to sulphur containing medications or to sulphites, which are additives in food, do not experience problems taking MSM. MSM lacks the proteins that are the usual factors triggering reactions. However, we suggest caution when taking MSM if you know you have these allergies.
