MSM (methylsulfonylmethane, dimethyl sulfone, DMSO2) is a naturally occurring thiol compound and one of the most popular dietary supplements. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is essential in maintaining optimum health. It nourishes our hair, skin, muscles, joints and nails; it can reduce pain and inflammation; it also has been shown to increase blood circulation, strengthen capillary walls and thus heal varicose veins; and it can be helpful in treating many other conditions such as arthritis, asthma, emphysema, tendinitis, diabetes, acne, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic fatigue, constipation, digestive disorders, parasite infestations, allergies, toxic build-up and ulcers. MSM supplements not only helps in treating osteoarthritis but rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and other autoimmune-related conditions as well. MSM may be useful for treating chronic back pain resulting from muscle strain, ligament sprain, or the early degenerative changes that can affect joints and discs in the back.
