|MSM Powder - Methylsulfonylmethane Powder
MSM serves as an important source of bioavailable dietary sulfur, a mineral
that plays a critical role in maintaining the integrity and elasticity of connective
and other tissues. It is an important component of proteins found throughout
the body, such as in hair, nails, skin and tendons. Taking MSM throughout the
day helps replenish the body's supply of assimilable sulfur.
MSM Methylsulfonylmethane: Nature's Source for Dietary Sulfur
MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is a naturally occurring form of organic sulfur.
Though present in dietary sources such as milk, eggs, fish, fruits, vegetables,
grains and lean meat, MSM may be lost as a result of over-processing and heating
- a particular problem in the modern diet. That's why Source Naturals created
MSM. Taking MSM throughout the day helps to replenish the body's supply of assimilable
Sulfur Helps Maintain the Integrity of Connective Tissue
Sulfur is found in proteins throughout our bodies and is vital to our connective
tissues. It must be present in the body in correct balance to keep our tissues
elastic and free. Dietary sulfur is related to the production of GAGs. This
is especially important during growth and development, and when connective tissue
metabolism becomes active for support of healthy tissues. Sulfur also is needed
for amino acid metabolism and hormone synthesis, and is a key factor in the
body's natural defenses. It is a component of important sulfur amino acids,
including methionine, cysteine and glutathione.
Vitamin C for Additional Joint Support
Source Naturals has added vitamin C to its MSM tablets because C also is crucial
to connective tissue. Vitamin C was first identified as essential because of
its role in preventing the classic deficiency disease, scurvy. Scurvy is the
total breakdown of collagen, the connective protein that binds tissue together.
Although scurvy is rare today, vitamin C still is associated with support for
Over-Processing & the Modern Diet
We should be able to get sufficient MSM from our diets. It is a naturally occurring
form of organic sulfur found mainly in protein-rich foods, such as eggs, fish
and lean meat. However, today's over-processed American diet may provide low
amounts of sulfur. In this situation, supplementation may be advisable.
MSM: A Versatile Nutrient

with a wide range of uses. Source Naturals offers MSM in a 750 mg potency with
125 mg of vitamin C added per tablet. MSM is sold in 60, 120 and 240-tablet
