MSM stands for Methyl sulphonyl methane. MSM is a form of sulphur, which is a component in the formation of collagen, elastin, cartilage and keratin. MSM is a source of sulphur which is an essential nutrient required for the body's production of proteins such as those found in cartilage, hair, skin and nails.
Small quantities of MSM occur naturally in many foods, and it is, therefore, a source of sulphur in the diet, along with the sulphur-containing amino acids found in dietary proteins.
MSM and Skin
MSM is really popular with people who appreciate having a radiant complexion, glowing skin and glossy hair. Sulphur is often referred to as "The beauty mineral".
MSM is formed naturally as a by product of algae growing in the oceans and then is evaporated into the clouds. With rain, it falls to the Earth and becomes food and nutrition for all living organisms.
MSM is highly concentrated in plants watered by rain, such as pine bark, wild grasses, aloe vera, etc.
How much MSM should i take? It is best to start taking MSM in small quantities initially (½ tablespoon in a pint size glass of water) and increase the dose gradually to 1 - 2 tablespoons each day.
How our MSM is processed: The production of MSM is designed to replicate the chemical reaction occurring in the upper atmosphere that generates MSM in nature.
Once the MSM has been synthesized, it undergoes centrifugal separation in order to eliminate most of the existing water in the mixture. The remaining solution is then filtered to ensure there are no foreign particles before it is allowed to cool and form solid particles. This crystallization process is essential for the purification of MSM: as most impurities do not fit into the lattice structure of the crystals, they remain part of the separated liquid solution and do not make it into the final product.
The MSM crystals are dried and carefully screened once more for any contamination. The resulting product is a white, odourless crystalline material resembling sugar.
