Health Benefits of MSM: Digestive System Health

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Impact #8: Digestive System Health MSM can be taken to alleviate Constipation (especially Constipation in elderly persons). MSM prevents intestinal parasites from adhering to the gastrointestinal tract. “MSM may affect such infections by competing for binding or receptor site as at the mucous membrane surface presenting a blocking interface between host and parasite.” Consequently MSM has proven effective against Giardia lambia (travelerʼs diarrhea), Trichomonas vaginalis, Nematodes, Enterobius and other intestinal...

Impact #7: Detoxification Sulfur is extremely important component of Glutathione, the amino acid integral in phase 2 liver detoxification enzymes. Adequate levels of this sulfur-based amino acid are necessary for the liver to perform its detoxification role. Supplementation with MSM may promote improved liver detoxification.

Impact #6: Cardiovascular System Health MSM improves blood circulation by dilating the blood vessels. A similar effect can be found by consuming raw ginger. Many Americans take either antihistamine for allergies or consume caffeine for energy. Both of these are vasoconstrictors. They make the blood vessels smaller in diameter thereby restricting blood flow. Currently 54% of Americans admit to drinking coffee daily. This does not include tea or other energy drinks. That is over 150 million people in America alone with daily constricted...

Health Benefits of MSM: Slowing the aging process in skin

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Impact #5: Slowing the Aging Process in Skin The bodyʼs content of MSM declines in tandem with the progression of the Aging Process. MSM inhibits the cross-linking of the bodyʼs collagen (cross-linking of collagen is a major aspect of the aging process). Your body uses sulfur to create collagen. This fibrous protein is what makes baby skin look young and elderly skin look old. Want to look young? Take more sulfur to increase your collagen...

Health Benefits of MSM: Radiation Prevention and Recovery

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Impact #4: Radiation prevention and recovery The body uses sulfur to create the amino acids methionine, cysteine and taurine.  Each of these protect against radiation such as UV-A and UV-B and radiation from chemo treatments. UV radiation impairs peptide methionine sulfoxide reductase. This protein is ubiquitous and highly conserved. It carries out the enzymatic reduction of methionine sulfoxide to methionine. Human and animal studies have shown the highest levels of expression in kidney and liver. Its proposed function is the repair of oxidative damage to proteins to restore biological activity. In other words, UV radiation damages the production of methionine and sulfur repairs it. It isnʼt that sulfur makes you radiation immune any more than 1 glass of water prevents dehydration. It does mean that your body uses sulfur to maintain proper health and events like radiation exposure, be it sun or otherwise, damage your health. Both cysteine and taurine, amino acids produces with sulfur, protect against radiation though modern science is not yet clears as to why. There are several clinical studies showing this property though all of them state that more studies are necessary. In short, increasing the sulfur in your body increases your likelihood to protect against and recover from UV and X-ray radiation...

Health Benefits of MSM: Insulin production

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Impact #3: Insulin production Insulin is a protein chain. It includes an alpha side and a beta side and those two sides are bonded via sulfur molecules. MSM is 34% elemental sulfur by weight. Insulin facilitates entry of glucose into muscle, adipose and several other tissues. Insulin stimulates the liver to store glucose in the form of glycogen Insulin decreases the concentration of glucose in blood. Insulin promotes synthesis of fatty acids in the liver. Insulin inhibits breakdown of fat in adipose tissue. Most notably, people with diabetes have an imbalance of how their body creates, regulates and uses...
