MSM is the abbreviation for methylsulfonylmethane - also known as dimethylsulfone. It is an organic sulfur compound that can provide the human body with valuable natural sulfur.
Sulfur is a vital element. The human body consists of 0.2 percent sulfur. For example, our body contains five times more sulfur than magnesium and forty times more sulfur than iron. Most people know how important it is to get enough magnesium and iron daily. On the other hand, only a few take care of an adequate supply of sulfur.
Sulfur is an indispensable component of many endogenous substances. Sulfur is an important component of the synovial fluid and also of the inner layer of the joint capsules. Both are constantly renewed due to permanent stress on the joints of the body independently. However, if sulfur is missing, the body can no longer perform the necessary joint repairs.
