MSM (organic sulphur)
Methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM) is a natural form of sulphur and one of the most recent popular discoveries in managing arthritis. It can often be found combined with glucosomine products.
MSM is the more pure form of DMSO.
It seems that more studies have been conducted on DMSO than MSM but perhaps this is because the extraction of MSM is a newer process. There is a fact that distallation of MSM is preferable to the crystalisation of MSM, and this would be true if the purity of the result is not carefully examined and pockets of debris are not removed. The process for the quality MSM offered by Natural Arthritis Relief filters out 99.9% pure MSM, after being crystalised through a state of the art process.
MSM/DMSO has been proven, by science studies of over 12,000 people over 20 years, to benefit a large range of conditions, such as.....
.....acne, PMS, chronic fatigue, fibromyalga, RSI, allergies, diabetes, arthritis, snoring, sporting injury, ulcers, diarrhoea, hayfever, carpel tunnell, rashes, hormone imbalance, pain, rheumatism, candida, stress, irratable bowel, scar tissue, headaches, bursitis, pheunomia, obesity, tennis elbow, constipation, wrinkles, indegestion, tendonitis, lupus, varicous veins, lung disease, emphysema, alzheimers, brittle nails, gum disease, cramps, eyes, energy, well being, and more....
MSM is one of the main elements found within our body when we're healthy, and is absolutely essential for health in every way. MSM offers a means of providing this 'essential to life' in a bio-available natural form. Unfortunately as we age or if we're recovering from illness, our MSM levels drop resulting in a range of health problems and the need for MSM supplementation increases more than usual.
MSM is essential for.....
MSM is found in fruit, vegatables and other plants but many of these foods can't supplying enough MSM, due to the production and storage practices that exist these days. Without MSM, which belongs to the same chemical group as oxygen, we could not survive, so it makes sense to include more in our diet.

This MSM is derived from trees, which are lignin and sulfur rich.
Inflammation and MSM.....
MSM reduces inflammation by several mechanisms. It is an antioxidant, a scavenger of the free radicals that gather at the site of an injury. MSM stabilises membranes and slows down or stops leakage from injured cells.
Dr Edelson, who practices medicine at the Environmental & Preventative Health Centre has used DMSO extensively for over 4 years. "We use it intraveniously as well as locally, for all types of inflammatory conditions, from rhuemetoid arthritis to chronic low back inflammatory pain, from silicon immune toxicity syndromes to autoimmune diseases. It's not a cure, it is a symptomatic approach used while you try to figure out why the individual has the process going on. When patients come in with rhuemetoid arthritis, we put them on IV DMSO 3 times per week, while we evaluate the cause of the disease, and the relief they experience is really dramatic."
Arthritis and MSM.....
Arthritis sufferers who have increased MSM in their diet have shown the following benefits....
Research shows that arthritis cartlidge has only a third of the MSM level present in healthy cartlidge.
Laboratory studies have indicated that DMSO's capacity as a free-radical scavenger suggests an important role for it in arthritis. The committee of Clinical Drug Trials of the Japanese Rhuemetism Association conducted a trial with 318 patients at several clinics using 90% DMSO and concluded that DMSO relieved joint pain and increased a range of joint motion & grip strength, performing a little better in more recent cases of the disease.
In one MSM clinical study, patients with xray evidence of degenerative joint disease were given MSM and most had an 82% reduction in pain after 6 weeks.
In another study, involving 60 men & women aged between 40 to 82, the results were very good in 90% of the cases. Patients in this study, who were on no other medications during the trial, were given 75 mg of MSM twice daily (one teaspoon equals approx 5 gm) and reported effective pain relief in 2 to 14 days. No side effects were noted.
Diabetes and MSM...
Diabetes is a condition associated with excess blood sugar levels and a lack of insulin or cell resisance to insulin. Cells have become rigid and non permeable. Insulin carries blood sugar to the cells but does not become adsorbed because the cell walls are not permeable. In turn the pancreas works too hard trying to compensate for the deficiency, becomes injured and ceases correct function.
Unused blood sugar saturates the blood stream creating a high level of blood sugar. MSM taken regularly may make cells more permeable and assist pancreas recovery. After a few months, people report that sugar levels have become balanced. Memory Loss,
Depression and MSM.....
People who take MSM regularly report increased alertness, enhanced concentration, reduced mood swings, and depressed people have reported rapid relief, in hours not days!Acidity and MSM.....Both lab and clinical studies prove that MSM can provide extremely effective, and sometimes immediate, relief from excess acidity, with no side effects.
Central Nervous System and MSM.....
Dr de la Torre, University of Chicago, has experimented using DMSO with injury to the central system. He discovered that DMSO lowered intracranial pressure faster & more effectively than any other drug. It also stabalised blood pressure, improved respiration, increased urine output and increased blood flow through the spinal cord to areas of injury. "We believe that DMSO may be a very good product for stroke. There's a lot of animal data showing that it's very good at disolving clots."
Scleroderma and Collagen.....
Scleroderma is a rare disease resulting from an abnormal build-up of collagen in the body. The body swells, the skin becomes dense & leathery, and calcium deposits in joints cause difficulty in movement. Fatigue & difficulty breathing may ensue. Dr Arthur Scherbel, of the department of rhueumatic diseases and pathology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, conducted a study using DMSO with 42 scleroderma patients who had exhausted all other possible therapies without relief. Historic changes were observed together with ischemic ulcers on fingertips, relief from pain & stiffness, and an increase in strength.
