MSM or methylsufonylmethane is one of the most prevalent elements in
the body. It is necessary for many proper functions in the body.
MSM2000, unlike some other brands on the market, combines MSM with
carefully selected herbs and nutrients to provide extra benefits. MSM
2000 has been one of the top selling products in our line since its
introduction in 1997.
About MSM 2000 TM
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), a naturally occurring dietary derivation of DMSO (Dimethylsulfoxide), serves as an important source of bioavailable dietary sulfur and when administered orally, is effective in ameliorating symptoms of physiological response to stress including gastrointestinal upset, inflammation of the mucous membranes, pain associated with musculoskeletal system disorders, and infectant allergens. MSM has proved useful as a dietary supplement for both children and adults, including geriatric patients. MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur-containing compound with multiple functions in the body. MSM is naturally present in body fluids and tissues and is found in milk and a variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains in small amounts. At low levels of ingestion, it functions as a normal dietary ingredient and assimilable source of essential dietary sulfur. At higher levels, it functions as a pharmaceutically active agent which can be used safely and effectively for a variety of purposes.
The development of MSM as a dietary supplement stemmed from research on DMSO. As a stable, odorless dietary metabolite of DMSO, MSM possesses certain biomedical properties similar to DMSO, together with additional biological activity not possessed by DMSO. MSM, unlike DMSO, is a dietary factor and is free of the unpleasant odor found with the use of DMSO. MSM, like DMSO, enhances urinary taurine secretion produced by aromatic hydrocarbons in man and neutralizes the toxicity of anticholinesterases, thereby providing protection against insecticide exposure or ingestion.
MSM and many precursor compounds which are readily converted to MSM in the body, are found in most natural, unprocessed foods. However, because of its volatility, it is readily lost when fresh food is processed and/or stored. Unless the diet consists largely of raw, unprocessed, foods it is unlikely that sufficient MSM will be ingested to contribute significantly to the daily nutritional requirements, thus furthering the high incidence of sulfur deficient diets which exist globally.
Sulfur plays an indispensable role in human nutrition which is often overlooked. It is responsible for the conformation of body proteins through the formation of disulfide bonds, thereby holding connective tissue together. Thiol (ie. sulfhydryl) groups are vital for the catalytic function of several body enzymes. To perform these roles, constant intake of assimilable sulfur is needed by the body.
Although MSM has not yet been established to be a vitamin, it does have a vitamin-like moderating or normalizing activity for various body functions, as there appears to be high correlation between abnormal physiological symptoms and low MSM blood levels in human beings. Although MSM is found as a natural constituent of food stuffs, like vitamin D, the principle supply is believed to be synthesized by the body using one of its naturally occurring precursor compounds. Also, excretion data shows that MSM occurs in lower concentrations with increasing age. Too low a body concentration of MSM may potentially result in adverse physical and psychological stress, tissue and organ malfunction, fatigue, and increased susceptibility to disease.
