5 Key Benefits Of MSM

From increasing your energy levels to helping with conditions like allergies and asthma, MSM performs a series of important functions in your body every day. Let’s look closely at some of the most important ones. I reccommed getting MSM from your diet there are certain sprouted seeds that contain high levels of organic sulfur. If this is not feasible youi can incorporate MSM in powder form into the diet.

1. Key Source Of Sulfur

Sulfur is perhaps one of the most important nutrients required by our body as it is present in the amino acids which are in turn the basic building blocks of protein.

It also has a series of other healing and preventive properties for the human body. MSM happens to be the best form of sulfur which can be consumed both in the form of food products as well as dietary supplements.


2. Bone And Joint Care 

MSM is a beneficial nutrient for you and your horse, helping conditions like arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Being a calcium phosphate dissolved, MSM helps in breaking up the unhealthy calcium deposits in the body that are the root cause of degenerative diseases.

In addition, taking adequate supplements of MSM helps in:
            •           Reducing pain and swelling
            •           Reducing stiffness

                        Improving joint flexibility
            •           Improving circulation
            •           Improving cell vitality


3. The Detoxification Effect

MSM considerably increases the permeability of your cells which means that it increases cells capability of flushing out excess fluids and toxins. This mechanism has a very important detoxifying effect, making way for essential nutrients into your system and thereby improving the overall functioning of your cell membranes.

4. Skin, Hooves & Hair Care

The sulfur provided by MSM produces generous quantities of collagen and keratin, both of which are vital for nails/hooves/hair. In fact, MSM is often referred to as the ‘beauty mineral’ owing to its ability to add to enhance the thickness and strength of nails as well as hair in a very short span of time.

Moreover, research also shows that MSM is quite helpful in the treatment of skin conditions such as:

  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Rosacea
  • Dermatitis
  • Acne
  • Dandruff

5. Natural Energy Booster

We just explained how MSM increases the permeability of our cells. Owing to this increased permeability, these cells then need a lesser amount of energy to deal with the accumulated toxins. Moreover, due to the detoxification, it becomes easier for the body to absorb nutrients, which in turn reduces the amount of energy spent on digestion of your food.
