When it comes to goodness,
you will discover MSM provides the goodness that makes it a bonus
for everyday healthy living. But many people have question
concerning MSM. Let’s take a look at some questions and our down to
Are capsules of MSM as
effective as powdered MSM?
The quick and easy answer is
that MSM in any form is beneficial. However, the complicated answer
is a bit more complicated that the quick and easy answer. Capsules
cannot hold the same amount of MSM as taking a shot glass filled
with MSM. You would have to take a lot of capsules to get the same
dose you would get with the powder form of MSM from a shot glass.

equals 4 grams of MSM or 4,000 mg of MSM.
