      Put together some information on MSM since it seems to be coming up in
      conversations a lot lately. Hope this helps those who are wondering
      about MSM understand it better.

      Background

      Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally-occurring sulfur compound and
      dietary derivative of DMSO . it is not a vitamin or a drug. DMSO became
      popular in the early 60s when several doctors teamed up with a equine
      vet and discovered that it reduced inflammation, promoted circulation,
      cleared up lung problems and healed wounds in horses. However, because
      of the chemical D1-Methyl found in DMSO, any being taking DMSO had a
      foul garlic or dead fish odor. A method was discovered to oxidize DMSO
      which caused the MSM to crystallize and become pure and stable which
      meant it was possible to store it without loss of potency and eliminated
      the odor associated with DMSO/ D1-Methyl. By the way, DMSO is a
      byproduct of the paper milling process and comes from pine trees.

      About MSM

      MSM is a natural sulfur compound found in every cell of the body. Next
      to oxygen, water, and salt, MSM is the fourth most common compound in
      the body. Sulfur is involved in practically all of the body's metabolic
      processes and is essential for cell regeneration and nourishment.
      Approximately half of the total body sulfur is found in the muscles,
      skin and bones. Sulfur is needed for making collagen, the primary
      component of cartilage and connective tissue...this is not the same
      sulpher that is in sulfer medications that so many people are allergic
      to, it is the natural sulpher that our bodies produce. Our bodies
      utilize MSM/sulpher for:

      · Maintaining proper functioning of the immune system
      · Building healthy connective tissues
      · Proper joint function
      · Maintaining enzyme activity (it's even been found to help candida)
      · Regulating hormone balance

      MSM is necessary for collagen synthesis: skin, hair and nails (bones,
      muscles and organs). It softens the tissue, relieves stress, asthma,
      arthritis, inflammation, constipation, candida, detoxifies the body and
      increases blood circulation, reduces muscle cramps and back pain,
      permits muscles to heal, increases energy, mental calmness and improves
      the ability to concentrate. MSM has both analgesic and anti-inflammatory
      properties and plays a role in removing free radicals and foreign
      proteins from the body

      Research has proven that MSM helps:

      · Reduce stiffness, swelling, and inflammation (ie: as caused by
      rheumatoid arthritis)
      · Improve joint flexibility
      · Improve circulation
      · Reduce pain and scar tissue formation
      · Break up calcium deposits

      Some additional research has found success in using MSM for:

      · Osteoarthritis
      · Tendonitis and bursitis
      · Headaches and back/neck pain
      · Sore muscles and sports injuries
      · Fibromyalgia
      · Carpal tunnel syndrome
      · Allergies

      This is just a brief synopsis from two of my books on MSM...one is an
      older book that I got years ago when I discovered that they had refined
      DMSO (which I had been using externally on both horses and myself during
      my years on the racetrack) and the other is a relatively new book
      published since it has become so well known.

      So I hope this helps everyone gain a little understanding of MSM.

      Blessings
