Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) MSM 

MSM is methylsulfonylmethane, an excellent source of organic sulfur. Sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in the body, and is found in concentrated amounts in connective tissues and joint cartilage. It is required for the formation of disulfide bonds, an important part of many molecular structures, and is needed for the functions of many enzymes. MSM is thought to be important for maintaining the structure and function of joints.*

MSM has been shown to improve allergic symptoms in response to a wide variety of allergens, as well as improving the effects of antiallergy medications. It has also been found to improve symptoms of gastrointestinal upset. It reduces inflammation and is therefore useful for joint pain. It reduces the buildup of lactic acid, which is what causes cramping during physical activity. It also enhances the absorption of other nutrients from food.*

Although it is present in foods, MSM is readily lost when the foods are processed, heated or dried. Supplemental MSM has been shown to be safe and well absorbed. AOR’s MSM provides a convenient form of this important source of sulfur.*

Research

Allergic Response

MSM has a broad and profound beneficial effect in ameliorating diverse allergic responses. MSM ameliorates allergic reactions to inhalant, ingestant, contact and infectant allergens. Studies have found a direct correlation between concentrations of MSM supplementation and resistance to allergies. Although MSM alone may not totally eliminate allergic responses, the majority of subjects report a significant reduction in concurrent anti-allergy medication. Besides environmental allergies (such as house dust, pollen, and animal hair), food and drug allergies (such as aspirin, NSAIDs, antibiotics, dairy, cereals, and shrimp) are afforded considerable protection by MSM.*

Joint Pain & Inflammation and Muscle Cramps

MSM’s anti-inflammatory actions make it helpful for relieving pain and inflammation from various sources, such as arthritis and other musculoskeletal disorders. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disorder and affects more than 30 million people in the United States. Several studies have found that MSM has positive effects on osteoarthritis symptoms. Studies have also found that MSM can significantly reduce night leg cramps, back cramps and muscle spasms. Another benefit of MSM is the reduction in lactic acid buildup, which causes muscle cramps. This would be useful in sports nutrition.*

Gastrointestinal Upset & Infection

MSM is effective in ameliorating GI upset such as that produced by ingesting certain pharmaceuticals (e.g. aspirin or Motrin). Symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, nausea and hyperacidity are all reported to improve. MSM also demonstrates activity against a variety of parasites of the intestinal and urogenital tracts, among them Giardia lambia (“traveller’s diarrhea”), Trichomonads, and round worms. MSM may affect such infections by competing for binding sites at the mucous membrane surface, preventing or blocking interface between host and parasite.*
