MSM (metylosulfonylometan) is a natural, highly absorbable source of sulphur. Chemical formula for MSM is CH3SO2CH3. In this form sulphur is naturally encountered in all living organisms and remains biologically active. MSM is an odourless, white, crystalline powder, easily soluble in warm water, and various organic solvents. Sulphur in such a biologically active form has amazing prophylactic and therapeutic properties, i.e. acts as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory agent, enhances permeability of cell membranes, and acts as a muscle relaxant. Regular use of MSM improves the utilization of nutrients, and enhances the action of other dietary supplements, especially in the joints. MSM is effectively antitoxic. Active sulphur is also used for treating allergies and skin problems.
