Biotics Research MSM - 60 caps
Biotics Research's MSM provides a supplemental source of methylsulfonylmethane, an organic sulfur containing compound. MSM is a metabolite of DMSO. Available in capsules or as a powder.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural compound found in plants and animals, MSM is a normal oxidation product of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and is a part of the natural global sulfur cycle. MSM, therefore, is a key member of the sulfur family. Sulfur is a very important element in human metabolism. Sulfur is necessary for the production of collagen, the primary constituent of cartilage and connective tissue. Additionally, intracellular sulfhydryl groups are necessary for the catalytic function of numerous enzymes. Sulfur is necessary for the maintenance of healthy hair, skin and nails. In addition, sulfur plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism. Many people consume inadequate amounts of sulfur-containing compounds, such as methionine and cysteine. For them, MSM can serve as an excellent supplemental source of sulfur. MSM has been extensively researched, is highly soluble, and has been found to be a safe and effective source of supplemental sulfur.
