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.

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

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.
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.

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 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

a lot of manufacturers who claim to sell pure MSM dietary supplements when indeed they
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
