METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE (MSM) is a sulfur-containing organic compound that occurs naturally in certain foods, including meat, plants and marine organisms. MSM is also available in the form of dietary supplements. MSM performs many important functions in the body, including being a component of proteins, enzymes and other chemical compounds. One of the most important functions of MSM is the supply of sulfur. It is essential for many metabolic processes, including the synthesis of collagen, keratin and glutathione. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. MSM is used in alternative medicine as a dietary supplement to relieve joint and muscle pain. It reduces inflammation, improves the health of the skin and hair and strengthens the body’s immunity. In dietary supplements, it usually occurs as an additive to joint products.
