MSM: A Thing Or Two

Believed by some to be a miraculous cure for arthritis, MSM is still something of a mystery. The few tests that have been conducted using it have yielded positive, but inconclusive results. Even if it is discovered that this chemical is not a monumental breakthrough, its effects are still well worth investigating.

Besides helping to ease the pain endured by those with osteoarthritis, gout, and rheumatoid arthritis, proponents of MSM also claim that it is effective when battling allergies, snoring, and constipation. It does not seem to have the ability though, to stop cartilage and joints from being destroyed. Also, thus far, it appears that any positive effects associated with the chemical will cease once you stop taking the supplement.

You can find it in foods such as milk, fish, vegetables and fresh fruits. Clearly then, anyone who eats a healthy diet should benefit positively from MSM. However, this is not the case. When these foods are processed in your digestive system, the chemical is destroyed. It is white, tasteless, odorless, and soluble in water.

As the human body does not contain it, it is instead marketed and advertised as a supplement and sold as a compound taken from DMSO. This was the miracle cure for arthritis in the 1960s, then it was discovered that it contained nasty side effects and caused possible health problems. Now that DMSO has virtually disappeared from the public consciousness, MSM has replaced it.

The whole furore over the potential of this chemical for medical use, stemmed from successful animal testing. These studies showed significant positive effects for animals, such as the removal of symptoms similar to rheumatoid arthritis in mice. However, thus far, evidence of these effects benefiting people in the same way is thin on the ground. There have been only a couple of controlled, clinical tests involving humans.

It is sold for oral consumption, that is, in solution, capsule or tablet form. It has been combined with Vitamin C and various other dietary supplements. Also, it has been sold as a cream to be applied to your skin.

If you decide to take MSM, first of all inform your doctor, just to make sure that they approve. Due to the scant nature of human testing, there is no definite knowledge of how it reacts to particular medications, herbal medicines, or supplements. Ensure that you only purchase the product from a manufacturer that is approved by US Pharmacopoeia standards. Remember, there are numerous brands, each will contain differing amounts of the chemical.

When taking MSM, be careful and consume only the recommended daily dose. The Arthritis Foundation believes that it is advisable to begin with a low dosage of 1000 mg a day, taken in two 500 mg doses. After a period of time, you can increase this to 1000 mg twice a day.

If you notice any side effects of any kind, immediately notify your doctor. It is essential that any negative elements of MSM be picked up on as soon as possible. At the same time, you should remember that any effects, good or bad, could take some time to become apparent. Decide with your doctor a reasonable timeframe for the usefulness of the chemical to take effect. If nothing happens within this period, you should seriously consider abandoning the use of it, and explore other avenues.
