MSM is a sulphur supplement. It is an organic sulphur compound (a metabolite of dimethyl sulphoxide), and is a dietary source of sulphur. Sulphur is an important elements for amino acid, protein synthesis, and in the formation of connective tissue. Our body also requires sulphur in keratin formation, production of immunoglobulin as part of the immune system, and catalysing the metabolic reactions that change food into energy.
MSM is a natural occurring sulfur compound found in the tissues and fluids of all living organisms. It is known for aiding in joint health but has also been shown to support liver detoxification and provide other health benefits. It is naturally found in varying amounts in raw unprocessed milk, meat, fish, fruits and vegetables. HOWEVER, most of the usable MSM is lost in washing and cooking. Modern food processing, packaging and preparation has robbed our food of the sulfur we need.
MSM originates in the oceans where microscopic plankton release sulfur compounds into seawater, which is quickly converted to DMS, a volatile sulfur compound that escapes into the atmosphere. In this suspended, gaseous state, the DMS reacts with ozone and ultraviolet sunlight to create DMSO and DMSO2, known as MSM. MSM then falls to the earth with the rain, where it is collected and concentrated in plants. Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible. MSM is produced by oxidizing DMSO. This process parallels the natural oxidation of DMSO to MSM that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.
