Jarrow Formulas MSM 1000 mg Action:
Methylsulfenylmethane (dimethyl sulfone) most commonly abbreviated as MSM, is the oxidised form of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), an organic compound that contains sulphur. It has excellent bioavailability, is safe and non-toxic (its profile is similar to water), is easily absorbed and accumulates in tissues once it enters the body, and can also cross the blood-brain barrier.
MSM has many health benefits - it provides sulphur, which is essential for the body to function properly; it provides thiol groups, which are used to synthesise glutathione; it conditions the production of antibodies and enzymes; it participates in collagen production.
MSM is a powerful antioxidant, capable of deactivating free radicals. This means that it can also reduce the intensity of oxidative stress. Additionally, it is an excellent source of sulfhydryl (-SH) groups, which are used in the synthesis of glutathione and endogenous antioxidant enzymes.
MSM supports the cartilage-articular system. It ensures an adequate supply of sulphur, which is present in all major structural tissues, helps build connective tissue, and is responsible for the proper condition of cartilage, tendons, ligaments and muscle fibres. Sulphur influences collagen synthesis and is part of the structure of glycosaminoglycans, which, when combined with proteins, form proteoglycans. Proteoglycans have gelling properties, condition the compressibility of articular cartilage, are responsible for the proper elasticity of connective tissue and, as non-collagenous proteins, are the building blocks of bone.
MSM has a strong anti-inflammatory effect
MSM not only strengthens the musculoskeletal apparatus, but also alleviates ailments occurring within it. It has an anti-inflammatory effect - it reduces the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including IL-6, IL-7 beta, IL-8, TNF-alpha, reduces the concentration of nitric oxide and prostaglandins E2, which are also involved in the inflammatory response. It is effective in relieving pain, reducing swelling that accompanies inflammation and improving the range of movement in affected joints. In a study involving patients with osteoarthritis, it was shown that 12-week supplementation with 1125 g of MSM daily was sufficient to reduce pain and inflammation by 33%. In addition, physical performance improved in all subjects.
MSM can support the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. It promotes the restoration of the lining of the gastrointestinal tract and alleviates symptoms associated with the so-called permeable bowel. MSM has an anti-allergic effect. It reduces the severity of allergy symptoms such as hay fever, difficulty breathing, sneezing and watery eyes. At the same time, it does not cause drowsiness, which is typical of many allergy medicines.
MSM has a significant effect on the condition of the skin, hair and nails. It increases levels of collagen and creatine, two compounds that are responsible for skin structure, hair growth and nail condition. As a result, it helps keep skin smooth and supple, reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles and reduces the tendency to scar. It strengthens hair and nails - prevents their brittleness, accelerates their growth.
MSM can support the treatment of acne, both juvenile and rosacea. For juvenile acne, the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of sulphur and its ability to inhibit excessive sebaceous gland activity are valuable. For rosacea, on the other hand, MSM supplementation can improve skin tone and hydration, reduce unsightly facial papules and reduce skin sensitivity.
MSM is great for sports supplementation. First and foremost, it increases the strength of bones, tendons and ligaments and thus minimises the risk of injury. If an injury is sustained, it supports therapy and reduces the time needed for recovery. MSM reduces the extent of damage to muscle tissue, which is caused by protein carbonylation. This is a destructive process of protein degeneration due to the damaging effects of free radicals. Numerous studies have shown that intense physical exercise increases oxidative stress, which can be reduced by an adequate supply of MSM.
MSM promotes muscle regeneration, improves tissue fluid circulation, supports the elimination of lactic acid and other harmful substances from the body. In this way, it prevents so-called 'soreness' and improves the supply of nutrients to the muscles, which are essential for rebuilding the micro-damage caused during intensive training. MSM eliminates delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), which occurs as a result of excessive exercise. In studies, regular supplementation with doses of 3g per day has been proven to completely eliminate the problem.
