Dear Lash,


MSM is extracted from DMSO by the process of adding another oxygen molecule to it so that it separates the dimethyl solvent from the sulphur. The sulphur left after this process is a biologically active sulphur, and it is the active ingredient in DMSO.

DMSO is a byproduct of the timber industry. At one time, Crown Zellerbach attempted to get rid of this "waste" by spraying it on dirt roads to compact the earth. This caused problems, because animals of every description would come and lick it all up. The deer would lick six inch potholes in the road. Dr. Stanley Jacob of the Oregon Health Sciences University observed this and later identified this substance as DMSO, a healing penetrant that instantly soaks through the skin and reduces pain. Eventually, Dr. Jacob discovered that the active healing agent in DMSO is MSM.

MSM is a sulphur-bearing amino acid and is available to the cell, creating a flexible bond. Cells with insufficient sulphur lose their ability to flex. A wrinkle is caused by cells that have lost their ability to flex. Sulphur has a vital relationship with protein, since sulphur is found in the amino acids methionine, cystine and cysteine. The sulphur-bearing amino acid is absolutely essential to health.

-Sulphur acts as an activator with all the B vitamins, thiamin, biotin, Vitamin C and pantothenic acid.
-Sulphur aids the liver in bile secretion and helps maintain the overall body balance between acidity and alkalinity.
-Sulphur plays a role in carbohydrate metabolism, which is significant for controlling hypoglycemia and diabetes. The lack of biological sulphur in the body results in low insulin production.
-Sulphur is a component of insulin, which is secreted by the pancreas for metabolizing carbohydrates.
-Sulphur keeps hair, nails and skin healthy.
-In addition, sulphur plays an important part in cell respiration and assimilation.

MSM is therefore essential to good health.

Medical research has proven that a minimal concentration od MSM is critical to function and structure, and the concentration in the body drops as time passes, directly contributing to aging. There has been extensive medical testing over the last fifteen years on the use of MSM in the diet. Some diseases considered irreversible, such as emphysema, have been overcome through use of supplemental MSM.

Other diseases treated with excellent results are: pyorrhea, skin burns, scars, eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, loss of hair, PMS, diabetes, hyperacidity, constipation, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, candida, chronic fatigue syndrome, Epstein-Barr and low energy level. MSM helps with the oxygenation of cells and free radical scavenging, and is thus anti-aging.

Because it helps in the production of methionine, a basic liver amino acid, MSM is very important to proper digestion and assimilation of food. The liver cannot do its job of regulating enzymes and metering sugar and filtering toxins properly without MSM.

MSM occurs in eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables, raw milk, wheat grass juice and aloe vera. Absorption of vitamins and minerals will be optimally enhanced with daily supplementation with MSM. There is no toxic dose, and the body will excrete an excess.

Best of Health!
