Ingredient Update: MSM – Methylsulfonylmethane

Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM for short is a naturally occurring nutrient found in the body, plants, meats, dairy products, fruits, and vegetables.  MSM is anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, which supplies sulfur to the body and allows it to heal itself and contribute to healthy skin.. Unfortunately amounts of MSM necessary for normal human health are not typically found in today’s average diet. This is why we have so many skin care companies and supplements containing MSM.

MSM  has been used to eliminate chronic pain, muscle pain, repairing cut, scraped, burned and damaged skin. There have been reports of MSM eliminating wrinkles, brown spots, skin tumors, and spider veins. MSM has been used for healing scar tissue and burned skin.  When used topically in the form of a cream or lotion, sufur is helpful with skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, scabies, diaper rash and certain fungal infections.

The skin is a vital organ that is held together by collagen. Collagen is very important for the cellular tissue.  MSM helps to replenish and repair damaged skin and increases wound healing. When MSM supplies are depleted the skin becomes dry, cracked, damaged and wrinkled. MSM feeds the formation of collagen and elastin in the skin while preventing and reducing cross-linking between cells.  Cross-linking between cells is the primary cause of wrinkles and scar tissue.
