animal and human consumption. In fact, it is darn near impossible to

Instead, we will urinate out the MSM our body does not use in a
Can MSM can allergic reactions or side effects?
This is perhaps one of the most asked questions. In medical
literature and studies, MSM has not been found to cause ANY allergic
reaction. MSM side effects are nil. However, many people have stated
they have an increase in stomach upset, loose stools, or skin rashes
with MSM. Most often these reactions are not due to the MSM but the
additives or fillers many companies use in their product. Just
because you tried that MSM product down the road does not mean you
will suffer the same reactions with OptiMSM. OptiMSM is pure sulfur
with no added fillers or additives.
Is MSM halal? Is MSM kosher?
OptiMSM is both halal and kosher. However, not all MSM products by
those other companies are kosher or halal. If you are not sure, you

Well, it is impossible to be allergic to sulfur. Sulfur is the third
most abundant mineral in our body. Therefore, if you were allergic
to sulfur you would be allergic to your own body. Many people can be
allergic to sulfa drugs or to sulfites, but MSM is not a sulfa drug
or sulfite. MSM should be safe for any mammal in the proper dosage.
Can I take MSM while pregnant?
While there have been no known negative reactions for pregnant women
or their fetus(s) while taking MSM while pregnant. It is always
advised to speak with your healthcare provider concerning any
medication or supplement you may be taking while pregnant. While MSM
is safe, you should play it safe. After all, you want what is best
for your fetus(s) and your body during this special time.
