New Study Shows MSM Means Less Soreness

New Study Shows MSM Means Less Soreness
A recent study funded by Bergstrom Nutrition shows MSM helps to reduce soreness after increased exercise or new activities. MSM minimizes muscle damage and soreness caused by exercise, which means less recovery time. Oral MSM raises the antioxidant activity in the blood.
Bergstrom Nutrition produces the world’s only GRAS-designed MSM and exceeds the industry standards for optimal purity and safety.
Bergstrom’s study shows the following:
* Confirmation that exercise can induce oxidative stress
* Daily oral supplements prior to exercise create better glutathione plasma levels
* Less muscle soreness after exercise

* Higher plasma oxidative capacity
* Reduce markers of muscle damage
The study also shows that MSM helps protect cells from damage following acute bouts of strenuous exercise.

DMSO causes some side effects such as reddening and itching of the skin, nasal congestion, and shortness of breath, excess intestinal gas, and allergic reactions. DMSO has a strong sulfur odor resulting in a garlic smell. None of the side effects are dangerous just unpleasant. MSM is safe and odorless and does not have the side effects as DMSO. However, one property of DMSO when applied externally acts as a powerful carrier for other substances, including toxic ones. These substances are carried into the body through the skin and mucous membranes, where they can do damage. DMSO is sold from commercial outlets mainly for industrial and animal use only and should always be handled with care.

MSM – Glucosamine (What is it?)

Glucosamine is a dietary supplement used by millions of people. Current production of glucosamine is derived from shellfish, which can cause an allergic reaction in some people. Glucosamine, a sugar produced in the body and found in small amounts in foods. Glucosamine is a small molecule. Just remember glucosamine will make you sick if you are allergic to shellfish. Glucosamine sulfate as a dietary supplement comes in many forms, including glucosamine HCL or glucosamine hydrochloride may increase the risk of developing insulin resistance and could decrease the metabolic actions of insulin. Although glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfate are bio-chemically classed as carbohydrates (sugars), the body is not able to break them down into glucose, so these compounds do not raise blood sugar by providing an additional source of glucose. However, many factors can affect insulin secretion and blood glucose levels in diabetic patients, and we recommend that individuals with diabetes check their blood glucose levels frequently when initiating glucosamine into their regimen. High dosages of glucosamine may cause gastric problems, nausea , diarrhea, indigestion, and heartburn. Glucosamine should be taken with meals to help reduce these problems.

Glucosamine is technically a form of an amino sugar that plays a major role in cartilage formation and repair. Glucosamine stimulates the production of water-binding glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, two essential building blocks of cartilage and also inhibits the production of chondrocytes, enzymes that break down cartilage.

MSM – Allergic to Sulfa Drugs?

Those who suffer from allergies to Sulfa drugs or to Sulfites may naturally assume they are allergic to Sulfur as well. This is a common misconception. Is it possible to be allergic to Sulfur? The answer is simply “NO”. Sulfur is an element, like oxygen or potassium. We as humans daily consume large amounts of Sulfur. Foods such as fish, poultry eggs, milk, legumes, onions, garlic, cabbage, brussel sprouts and turnips are a rich source of dietary sulfur. Sulfur is a major component of many nutritional supplements, not just MSM. Being that we could not survive without Sulfur eliminates the ability to become allergic to it.
OptiMSM is safe to take for those unable to take Sulfa drugs. We pride ourselves in offering the purest form of OptiMSM. Please visit us at today to place your order or for additional information. We are also available to answer any question and can be reached at 1-800-903-0309.

MSM – Constipation Relief

Constipation is a condition of the digestive system. The sufferer has hard feces that are difficult to expel. In most cases, this occurs because the colon has absorbed too much of the water from the food that is in the colon. The slower the food moves through your digestive tract, the more water the colon will absorb from food. Consequently, the feces become dry and hard. Defecation (emptying the bowels) can become very painful, and in some serious cases there may be symptoms of bowel obstruction. When the constipation is very severe; when the constipation prevents the passage of feces and gas, it is called constipation.
• Some lifestyle habits that may cause constipation include
• Changing your normal diet, exercise, or travel habits
• Ignoring the urge to have a bowel movement
• Feeling a lot of stress
• Eating a low-fiber diet
• Not drinking enough liquids
• Taking calcium or iron supplements
• Taking medicines such as painkillers with codeine; diuretics, also known as water pills; medicine for depression; and some antacids
The MSM Miracle states that “One study reveals that at least 75% of individuals taking one or more antacids or H2 histamine receptor antagonists against stomach acidity were able to sharply reduce or eliminate such medication within a week of initiating MSM as a dietary supplement. In another study, twenty-one subjects with a history of constipation were given 500 mg daily doses of MSM together with 1 gram of ascorbic acid. All subjects with abnormal colon function returned to normal and remained normal while MSM was part of their diet. These studies point out, that MSM often gives more relief from stomach acidity and constipation, than commonly prescribed medication. Many people have experienced that one of the most exciting and rewarding benefits for those who begin taking MSM, has been the prompt and continuing relief from stomach acidity and constipation problems.”

MSM – Lupus Relief

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is the most common form of lupus. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, meaning that the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy organs and tissue. Lupus can affect any part of the body, causing inflammation and damage in joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, or the brain. More than 90% of people with lupus have skin rashes, often triggered by exposure to the sun, and about half have kidney and lung problems. Because lupus affects the joints, it is considered a rheumatic (arthritis) disease.
Signs and symptoms:
• Extreme fatigue
• Painful or swollen joints (arthritis)
• Muscle pain and stiffness
• Unexplained fever
• Skin rashes, including a characteristic “butterfly” rash over the nose and cheeks
• Kidney problems
• Hair loss
• Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain
• Mouth and nose ulcers
• Headaches, migraine, seizures, stroke
• Anemia
• Depression
• Photosensitivity (sensitivity to sunlight)
Most of the research on MSM has been done by Dr. R. Lawrence of UCLA in California. Both have treated many thousands of people who are afflicted with painful conditions with DMSO and MSM.

In their book, The Miracle of MSM, they report that MSM can deliver numerous benefits, including:
• Pain Relief
• Reduced Inflammation
• Increased Blood Flow
• Softening of Scar Tissue
• Control of Overactive Nerve Impulses
• Reduced Muscle Spasms
The recommended dosage is 1,000-2,000 milligrams daily for preventive purposes and for therapeutic purposes the dosage varies depending on body weight, sex and individual need.

MSM-Relief for Headaches

Nearly half of all Americans experience at least one headache a month and about 10 million of us (4 percent of the population) are moderately so severely disable by different forms of headaches. Primary headaches are subdivided by the IHS into 4 classes: migraines, tension-type, Cluster or other trigeminal autonomic celalalgias, and other types.
Tension headaches, also known as a muscle contraction headache, are the most common primary headache. The pain is usually on both sides of the head, and described as “pressing or tightening”. Migraines are the second most common type of primary headache. Typical attacks lasts about 4-72 hours, usually are rated as moderate to severe, and are aggravated by most any physical activity and sometimes by even small amounts of light. Cluster headaches are a type of primary headache that is rare and they tend to be severe in nature and cause pain around the orbits and temporal regions. In the “other primary headache” category given by the IHS, there are several types of headaches with similar characteristics of the other three and can be described as a stabbing headache, cough headache, exertion headache.
As reported in “The Miracle of MSM” the consistent use of MSM can do the following:
• MSM has the ability to reduce muscle spasm
• Inhibits certain pain impulses in the body as well as reduces inflammation.
Applying OptiMSM topically to the back of the neck where you feel tension or taking orally is recommended. Visit us at to place your order today.
