MSM or methylsulfonylmethane is a naturally occurring form of organic sulfur found in living organisms that is commonly used to treat osteoarthritis. In humans, sulfur is present throughout the body in several organic compounds and is a factor in a number of different processes in the body. Sulfur is used to produce vital nutrients such as amino acids, some of which are involved in detoxification and pain relief. MSM holds our basic connective tissues together, forming the elemental structure of proteins, and is required for a number of enzymatic functions. This is where MSM’s application in osteoarthritis is so crucial.
MSM is primarily used to reduce the symptoms of knee pain and reduced physical function in osteoarthritis due to its anti-inflammatory and connective tissue supporting activities. It may also help reduce muscle pain and cramps due to its ability to reduce lactic acid production. MSM is also useful for ameliorating the symptoms of seasonal and other types of allergies.
AOR’s MSM provides an effective dose of this very important and beneficial form of sulphur.
Evidence supports a role for MSM in helping to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis (of the knee).
