MSM (Organic sulphur) is vital in the formation of keratin, collagen and elastin (disulphide bonds), which give flexibility, tone and strength to muscles, bones, joints,
internal membranes, skin, hair and nails. The human body contains a relatively large amount of sulphur. Our skin, hair and nails all have a high sulphur content - in fact, if you have ever been unfortunate enough to burn your hair or skin, the nasty smell that followed the sulphur content burning!
Dietary Sources of MSM
Dietary sources of MSM include meat, fish, poultry, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, garlic, onions, grains, beans, legumes and unpasteurised milk (approx 2 to 6 parts per million), and coffee (approx 1.5 parts per million).
Are we getting enough?
Nutritionists previously thought it was unlikely that we could become deficient. During the last few decades, however, a number of factors have taken their toll:
• Over-farming of land, leading to deficiencies in the food chain
• Long-term storage of foods
• More processed and preserved foods
• A large increase in the use of fast foods and pre-prepared foods
Consequently, few people eat enough raw, sulphur-containing foods on a daily basis. Sulphur amino acids should also be available from complex proteins in our normal diet. However, some nutritionists now suggest that taking a sulphur supplement is beneficial.
MSM is taken as a dietary supplement to restore organic sulphur levels so the body has the correct building blocks to repair and restore normal functions wherever possible.
