MSM fast became our number one best seller since our customers discovered how well it helps maintain healthy, flexible joints and muscles. Higher Nature MSM is sourced from tree bark; most companies supply petrochemical MSM.
MSM or methyl sulphonyl methane, is a sulphur compound that occurs naturally in our bodies and in our most common foods. Sulphur is found in all body cells, and in many amino acids, vitamins, enzymes and hormones.
Sulphur in the form of MSM is needed for the formation of collagen, which is the fibrous substance in connective tissue. Sulphur is therefore essential for the production of cartilaginous tissue whose elasticity is especially suited to provide support to the body. Sulphur is a significant constituent of skin, hair and nails, and has been called the `beauty mineral`. Sulphur levels in our tissues are known to vary for a number of reasons. Daily MSM use provides a natural and easily absorbed source of sulphur.
