Unknown to most of us, sulfur is one of the basic elements of life.

In fact, sulfur is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. The proper acid alkaline balance of the body cannot be maintained without it. MSM supplements can lower your pain levels by 50% or more, MSM supplements has the ability to reduce inflammation. Sulfur is vital to the creation and regeneration of the body's tissues. Sulfur is an indispensable component in human nutrition. MSM is found in every cell in the body. Sulfur itself is held mainly in the muscles, skin, bones, nails and hair. MSM dietary supplements provide the essential sulfur necessary for a number of body compounds. Veterinarians became interested in MSM dietary supplements and found that it worked on pets suffering from arthritis and lameness. When people saw the effect it had on their pets they began to buy MSM dietary supplements for themselves. MSM is found in raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. MSM is sulfur and sulfur is found in eggs, cheese, and meats. A deficiency in sulfur may cause slow growth or fatigue.

Dr. Stanley Jacobs, M.D. Director of the DMSO Clinic and Professor of Surgery at Oregon Health Sciences University, has conducted clinical studies on MSM dietary supplements and used it with his patients for over 20 years and has documented his findings in the book entitled "The Miracle of MSM". In the book Dr. Stanley Jacobs lists MSM's most significant actions to be: an analgesic (pain controller), MSM supplements aid in the relief of inflammation, MSM passes through cellular membranes of the body, including the skin, MSM does not dilate blood vessels but increases blood flow, MSM blocks the action of cholinesterase, thereby helping to restore normal bowel activity, MSM dietary supplements reduce muscle spasms, MSM alters the cross linking process in collagen, therefore reducing scar tissue, MSM has anti parasitic properties (particularly for giardia), and MSM has an immune normalizing effect, as observed in some autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma. One of the essential components in all life forms, sulfur is involved in amino acid production, connective tissue, skin, hair, nails, (in animals, hide and hooves), enzymes, hormones, and immunoglobulins. Dr. Jacobs lists the following as the most frequent applications of degenerative wear-and-tear arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis, Chronic back pain, Chronic headaches, Muscle pain, Fibromyalgia, Tendonitis and bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, TMJ problems, Post-traumatic pain and inflammation, and Heartburn.

Sulfur and Allergies

Over 40 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from allergies. An allergic response occurs when the body's immune system reacts to otherwise harmless substances we call allergens. Your body produces antibodies to fight the allergens. These antibodies then attach themselves to special cells in the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts where they eventually explode, releasing chemicals including histamine, a powerful compound that actually causes allergic symptoms. Once our immune system decides that a particular type of pollen is a hostile invader, it becomes sensitized to it and can react with allergy symptoms for years, and perhaps a lifetime.

Allergy drugs only suppress symptoms rather than treating the cause of the allergy and often result in uncomfortable side effects. Dust, pollen, mold or animal dander in the air results in sneezing, runny nose, tearing eyes, sore throat, ear infection, stomach cramps, itchy skin, hives, headaches, urinary frequency, stuffiness, fatigue, diarrhea, and possibly asthma. Allergy symptoms are your body's reaction to something foreign in your system. Symptoms are caused by an antibody called immunoglobulin E, or IgE, a protein that the body produces to fight the foreign substance. If your body is sulfur deficient, the cell walls become hard and stiff, hindering the flow of fluid through the cell walls.

Higher doses are typically necessary to experience therapeutic effects. A person suffering multiple allergic symptoms during pollen season may require more than 8 grams of MSM per day.

Look for the   OptiMSM Logo  logo. We use OptiMSM in all our MSM products.

MSM Capsules: It is recommended as a dietary supplement that you start out by taking 2-3 capsules of msm dietary supplements - 1000 mg. a day the first week. Then the next week take up to 3-6 1000 mg. capsules per day. The optimum effective dosage would depend on the body size, age, the MSM blood level prior to administration, and the nature and severity of the condition you are treating. Experiment with it to see what works best for you. MSM dietary supplement capsules are better utilized in the body than tablets. MSM capsules are made from crystal-flakes.

MSM Powder or MSM Crystals: MSM powder or crystal-flake form, take at least one full scoop (varies from 10-15 grams - depending on how you fill the scoop) per day (remember one level teaspoon of MSM equals 5 grams and one tablespoon = 10-15 grams - depending on how you fill the scoop) For best results build up to at least 20 grams (two full scoops) of MSM a day. MSM supplements have a bitter taste to it so I dissolve mine in warm water and chase it down with another drink. Or mix it in a small glass of chocolate milk to disguise the bitter taste. Studies show that MSM (sulfur) declines with age, so you would want to boost your msm dietary supplementation as you get older. Remember 1 tablespoon = 15 grams or 15,000 mg and one teaspoon = 5 grams or 5,000 mg.

MSM Side Effects: Your hair and nails will grow and it will increase your energy level.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) has been shown to be equally effective in clinical studies as anti-flammatory drugs, without the adverse side effects!

There are a lot of manufacturers who claim to sell pure MSM dietary supplements when indeed they do not. So be sure and check your labels yourself. Remember look for the OptiMSM logo. Be careful of MSM dietary supplement products made in India or China. Dietary supplements and herbs imported from China and India have a poor track record on quality. Ask for a certificate of analysis and check the melting point of the msm. A recent review in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics documents numerous reports of mislabeling and contamination, and deliberate adulteration of Chinese dietary supplements. Lead contamination is of particular concern. Also the water conditions in other foreign countries are of poor quality. Only the United States has the better capabilities of making pure MSM supplements because of our water control and its controlled purity form. MSM sulfur supplements are known by many names including such misspellings as surfor and sulfor. The correct spelling is sulfur.

Hint: For extra relief from aches and pains try making your own MSM bath salt. Mix 1 cup of crystals and 1 cup of Epson salt together in a hot tub of water and relax. You can use MSM powder if you do not have msm crystal flakes.

Remember that inside each jar of MSM powder or crystal-flakes is a scoop.
If you fill the scoop up halfway, that is one teaspoon.
If you fill the scoop up to the top, that is one tablespoon.
