..and why do we need it?
Remember when DMSO was all the rage? It helped quite a few people, but the problem was that it had an objectionable odor to it that people just did not like! Well, guess what! MSM is an odorless relative to DMSO and has many of the same benefits with none of the drawbacks!
MSM has been shown to have about the same toxicity as water. In other words, it would take over 1,360 grams (or almost 3 pounds!) of MSM in one dose to lead to the death of a 150-pound person. We are suggesting a supplementation of only a few grams per day (I personally take a little over a teaspoon per day and was taking nearly three times that for a year).
Dr. Stanley W. Jacob, M.D. has been studying and recommending MSM to his patients for over 20 years now and has seen some remarkable results. Most of these results are related to reductions in pain and inflammation, but it also helps allergy-related problems. His book, The Miracle of MSM – The Natural Solution for Pain (co-authored by Ronald M. Lawrence, M.D., Ph.D. and Martin Zucker, ©1999), speaks of MSM being an “…effective solution for … degenerative arthritis, chronic back pain, chronic headache, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, tendinitis and bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ, post-traumatic pain and inflammation, and allergies.”
While we can’t make any medical claims since we are not doctors, we have seen some significant positive results among ourselves and our customers. Many will try MSM because they have some problems, but many others should be including it in their diets to prevent a nutritional deficiency of sulfur before problems strike.
