Most people with higher blood pressure see their pressure go down after being on MSM a while. Some people do see it go up when initially starting on MSM due to the detox and release of stored up stimulants from your body tissues. But then after the detox stage, the blood pressure returns to normal with several people reporting that they no longer needed to take medication for their blood pressure.
You may want to reduce the amount of MSM somewhat--if you were just starting, 5 grams is too much to take initially. We prefer people to start at 1 gram a day or less and gradually work up to the higher amounts.
: Is there a connection between MSM & high blood pressure? My wife have been taking MSM for over a month now and it seems that our blood pressure is getting higher. Does MSM cause high blood pressure? Should we stop or should we reduce dosage? I've been taking approximately 5 grams. Thanks
