Opti-MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) Powder (or also known as flakes)
MSM is a naturally-occurring form of dietary sulfur found in fresh, raw foods and rain water. Sulfur is a vital mineral that is needed by the body for normal structure and function. It makes up the protein and connective tissue that comprises our body mass, assists enzymes in performing chemical reactions, and protects us from oxidative stress and harmful effects of toxicity. MSM can soften leathery internal tissues by rebuilding connective tissue with elastic sulfur bonds. It can also increase flexibility, as well as hasten recovery time from sore muscles and athletic injuries.
Our Opti-MSM is the highest quality MSM available. Some low quality MSM is created using solvents that can result in toxic byproducts. Opti-MSM dissolves easily into water or juice. It is best taken in the morning on an empty stomach for maximum absorption.
Suggested Use: Start with 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon once or twice a day. Work your way up to 1/2 teaspoon per 100lbs of body weight two times per day. Best combined with a good source of vitamin C, such as camu camu.
Q. MSM is sometimes referred to as "organic sulfur". What does that mean? Is OptiMSM an organic product?
A. When MSM is referred to as "organic", it is in terms of its chemistry and molecular makeup, and it does not refer to Organic Certification. MSM cannot be Certified Organic because it is not a food and is synthetically produced.
Q. What about plant based MSM? Is there such a thing?
A. Commercially available MSM does not come from wood, plants or fossil fuels. A chemical reaction is required to make MSM. All commercially available MSM is synthetic and created through a chemical reaction of DMSO and hydrogen peroxide. Since all commercial MSM produced comes from DMSO, and all commercial DMSO is produced synthetically, the origin of the DMSO is insignificant.

I’ve been using this MSM supplement for a little over a month. So far the only thing I have really noticed was my skin felt softer. I don’t really have any joint issues so I am not sure if it helps with that. The taste is very bitter but by adding it to a cup of coffee with stevia I can’t even taste it. I would recommend this product and purchase it again.
