MSM has been touted as a
miracle supplement capable of providing an increased quality of life
thanks to its almost magical properties. One of the claims by
individuals and experts alike is that MSM helps lessen inflammation
at the cellular level freeing sufferers of inflammatory diseases of
pain. Of course, to understand exactly how this works, we will need
to explore the definition of inflammation in terms that all of us
can understand. Then, you will have a better idea of how and why MSM
works to lessen inflammation.
Well, the easy definition is
that inflammation is one of the processes our body uses to help
protect us from foreign objects and infection such as viruses and
bacteria. In other words, inflammation lets our body send out its
little warriors called white blood cells as well as other chemicals
to fight off unwanted visitors in our body. This is a good thing and
helps us prevent being sick all the time.
Sometimes, our body’s
defense system or immune system gets confused and thinks that it
needs to send that inflammation response to help protect the body.
Once the white blood cells are released they will attack healthy
tissue believing the healthy tissue to be abnormal or infected. This
is part of autoimmune diseases. The white blood cells do what they
are supposed to do according to the boss which is the inflammation
many of us experience.
This misguided inflammation
response can be found in many autoimmune diseases and arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, gout, and polymyalgia
rheumatic are just a few of the musculoskeletal system and joints
often affected by painful inflammation. But you should know that
inflammation can cause other organ problems…

inflammation of the heart and can cause leg welling, short of
breath, and even worse;
-- Nephritis is the
inflammation of the kidneys and can cause kidney failure and high
-- Inflammation of those
small tubes transporting air to the lungs can cause something
commonly called an asthma attack;
-- Colitis or inflammation
of the large intestine can cause diarrhea and/or cramps and is
commonly referred to as irritable bowel syndrome.
MSM is sulfur. Sulfur gives

alleviating the amount and possibly the need for pain medication due
to inflammation. MSM helps give our body the boost necessary for
rejuvenating the inflammatory cells.
No one likes living with

your inflammatory diseases by allowing your body the strength to
heal itself? Well, many people and experts alike are discovering the
truth about MSM and how MSM is relieving pain naturally and
