I bet you didn’t think that you could reduce inflammation, treat your skin problems and reduce muscle fatigue all at the same time. I bet you didn’t think you could do all that with one simple ingredient, and I bet you didn’t think you could add the supplement to pretty much any drink with little to no change in taste or consistency.
Yeah, now I have your attention. Ok, ok, I’ll bring you into the light a little bit. This incredibly powerful and versatile powder is non other than, Methylsulfonylmethane…or MSM power.
How MSM works:
MSM supplements supply the body with extra sulfur for creating methionine, which helps the body process chemicals, form connective tissue, metabolizing foods, and absorb nutrients to for energy. MSM can be seen as a performance enhancer because it raises someone’s energy levels and fights fatigue.
MSM helps decrease joint inflammation, improve flexibility and restore collagen production. Research shows that many patients with arthritis and joint pain experienced a decrease in symptoms and improved quality of life when taking an MSM supplements. MSM supplements help the body form new joint and muscle tissue while lowering inflammatory responses that contribute to swelling and stiffness. The sulfur in the supplement impacts the immune system and encourages normal cellular activity. Sulfur, needs to be present for our bodily cells to release excess fluids that accumulate and cause swelling/tenderness.
Improves digestive problems:
MSM can help rebuild the lining of the digestive tract and lower inflammation or allergic reactions stemming from certain foods. It is also an incredibly useful antidote to Leaky Gut Syndrome. This is because it helps stop particles from leaching out the gut through small openings, where they can enter the bloodstream and spark an inflammatory response. This is partly due to the amount of Sulfur in the supplement which is an important mineral for digestion.
