How Does MSM Work?

How does MSM work?

Sulfur is one of the few elements that transports oxygen right into your cells. This process makes the cell walls more permeable. This is extremely important for cells as some elements need in, like oxygen, and some toxins need out, like heavy metals.


Ingested MSM enters almost all tissues of the body within 24 hours of its oral ingestion.

Most unused or metabolized MSM is excreted from the body within 96 hours of its ingestion (although some MSM remains in the body for up to 400 hours (16 days) after its ingestion.

MSM is excreted from the body primarily via the Urine. Lesser amounts are excreted via
Saliva, exhaled air and Perspiration.

Are MSM and Organic Sulfur the same thing?

Yes and no. The answer really comes down to how it is made. MSM can either be made
via distillation or crystallization.

Even Dr Mercola weighs in on the issue of distilled vs crystalized.

For MSM, distillation is by far superior. But crystallization is less expensive, and a lot
less energy-intensive. According to Mr. Benjamin, only two companies that produce
MSM use distillation. Mr. Benjamin explains why you should consider a product that
has been purified using distillation.

“A lot of the problems with [crystallization] is youʼre essentially crystallizing it out of a
parent solvent or liquid. If there are any impurities, which could be salts of heavy
metals, you could have aromatic hydrocarbons in that… Itʼs actually the parent
solvent. Itʼs usually water. It is dependent upon water quality.”

We choose to use the term Organic Sulfur as MSM can indicate anything that is
chemically Methylsulfonylmethane regardless of how it is made. Organic sulfur either
comes from plants and animals or from a high-quality distilled source.
