This organic sulfur-containing nutrient, used for many processes in the body, is beneficial for decreasing inflammation and joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.
The fifth more common element on Earth, sulfur is an essential component of all living cells. Depending on the form, this yellow mineral gives off the particular smells associated with garlic, onions and rotten eggs. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally-occuring organosulfur compound - a form that the body can utilize. This compound is an excellent way to ensure ample sulfur is available to the body for all its important functions.
The body utilizes and expends sulfur on a daily basis. It therefore must be continually replenished via food and/or supplementation for optimal nutrition and health. The body can take sulfur and make MSM naturally, but taking it in MSM form can also help to increase available sources. Here are some of the vital roles sulfur plays in the human body:
MSM originates in the oceans where microscopic plankton release sulfur compounds into seawater, which is quickly converted into dimethyl sulfide or DMS. This sulfur compound escapes into the atmosphere where it reacts with ozone and ultraviolet sunlight to create a product known as MSM. When it rains, the MSM falls to the earth, where it is collected and concentrated in plants. MSM can also be produced in a lab, where it is sometimes combined with other supplements such as glucosamine or chondroitin.
