What is MSM?

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic, bioavailable form of sulfur, appearing in all living organisms, and was first identified by modern research in 1940. Since then, MSM became one of the most-studied of all natural compounds – thousands of research papers have been published documenting its therapeutic properties.

Following calcium and phosphorus, organic MSM is the third most abundant mineral in the body. You have approximately 140 grams of MSM distributed throughout your body. Nearly half of all that naturally-occurring MSM is contained in muscular tissue, skin, and bones. It is also found in the foods we eat, such as milk, coffee, tea, and a wide variety of vegetables, like garlic, onions, alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes and corn. Fruit (like apples and raspberries) whole grains and beans are rich in MSM, too. As a dietary supplement, MSM is synthesized as a soluble white powder – identical to the organic sulfur found in your body.

Clinical research shows that MSM possesses therapeutic, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Its safety profile falls well within normal parameters – MSM can safely be taken over the long term with no documented toxicity. Recent peer-reviewed scientific studies showed the following benefits:

  • Helps combat exercise-induced inflammation
  • Decreases muscle damage and soreness
  • Promotes connective tissue health
  • Supports improved range of motion
  • Contributes to overall antioxidant defense

The oral, liquid combination of high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (HA) and MSM was also clinically-tested in an independent research facility for safety and effectiveness. In the NIS Labs data report, “Evaluation of effects of consumption of Play Again Now® on chronic pain in humans: An open-label feasibility study,” the combination of MSM and HA was statistically proven effective at two weeks, and participants continued improving at the four-week mark. Beyond diminished soreness, participants were more active, slept better, and had higher energy levels. MSM and HA together significantly enhanced their physical functioning, speeded recovery after physical activity and improved their overall quality of life.
Both HA and MSM occur naturally in the human body, but can degrade in quality through aging, overuse, or trauma. HA and MSM can be taken separately, but research shows that the HA/MSM combo provides a healthy one-two punch, significantly speeding recovery and supporting the healthy functioning of joints, ligaments, tendons, muscle and connective tissue.
