MSM is an important common mineral in the body

When most people hear of sulphur (MSM), they think of volcanoes or the smell of thermal hot springs. But there is much more to MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) , read on and find out why it’s a necessity for our bodies.

MSM is an important common mineral in the body and is a sulphur-containing compound found naturally in plants. It is an oxidised form of dimethyl sulfoxide, an organic compound found in flaxseeds.


MSM and Vitamins:

  • Helps you to absorb more nutrients (vitamins & minerals).
  • Co-enzyme Q10 interlocks with MSM, which means that for the body to fully utilize this nutrient, Methylsulfonylmethane (sulphur) must be taken with it.
  • Pantothenic acid, Vitamins A, D, and E, inter-enzymes, amino acids, selenium, calcium, germanium, Collignon and Dismuzyme are just some of the things we know the body does not utilize properly unless it has MSM to lock with.
  • Many vitamins we take are lost or flushed out of the body and is not fully absorbed due to a deficiency of MSM.
  • Vitamin C + MSM toughens capillary walls & work synergistically together. When MSM is added to the diet and taken with Vitamin C, chronic nosebleeds, easy bruising, and varicose veins may be relieved.
  • Every person is different, so one would need to find what works for you, but it is important when taking Vitamin C to make certain it has the bioflavonoids with it because it is then a complete food.
  • Nature’s vitamins (from fresh food) are the best because they contain the whole complexes without which the body can’t do its job, which is to maintain and repair the bodily systems. Without enough MSM, the body can’t do its job properly, because MSM is an important common mineral in the body.


Oxygen & MSM

  • Methylsulfonylmethane powder increases oxygen availability to the body.
  • Emphysema: There are people who have had emphysema, who used an atomizer for breathing and could hardly get out of the chair to walk across the room, who, after about a week of taking MSM, walked a half mile, rested, and then walked another half mile. Now that is not because emphysema had been reversed, but because the MSM detoxifies and increases the blood’s circulation of oxygen. MSM benefits the body by helping to get oxygen into the blood a lot more efficiently with the same amount of work.
  • MSM powder increases energy levels because Methylsulfonylmethane helps make the cell walls more permeable. Our cell walls get thicker and more rigid with age; this tends to create a lessening of the amount of nutrients and oxygen that can enter the cell through the cell wall.
  • Toxins also get stored in the cell and these toxins get trapped within the cells because of the lower permeability of the cell wall. When MSM enters the body the permeability of the cell walls greatly increases, enhancing the absorption of nutrients and oxygen, helping release the toxins which were stuck in cells. When these toxins leave the body, it helps to increase our energy.
  • MSM, the body can’t do its job properly.



  • When the blood of diabetics carries sugar to their cells, the sugar cannot be absorbed due to the impermeability of the cell wall. Studies show that when MSM enters the body it causes the cell wall to be more permeable again.
  • The pancreas (which requires sulphur to make insulin) normalizes because it doesn’t work so hard – blood sugar can now be absorbed through the cell walls, helping to balance the blood sugar level. Sulphur is a component of insulin (the protein hormone secreted by the pancreas that is essential to carbohydrate metabolism).
  • A lack of nutritional sulphur in the diet can result in low insulin production by the pancreas. For a diabetic, MSM is extremely helpful in improving their overall energy levels.
  • There have been reports of long-term diabetics injecting insulin daily for years, who have within a five week to two-month period became self-regulating and stopped having mood swings. Their blood sugar had stabilized. Certain studies suggest, in those with diabetes, after consuming sulphur their cell walls had become more leathery or stronger, thus reducing the absorption of sugar by the cells. A good example why MSM is an important common mineral in the body and how you can benefit from it.


Exercise & Methylsulfonylmethane (Sulphur)

  • MSM powder benefits the body by eliminating toxins including lactic acid build-up from strenuous exercise. Drinking plenty of water is very important for anyone wishing to have good health.
  • Sulphur detoxes the body which means that you need to keep water moving into the body so that the toxins can be eliminated without putting additional stress on other organs of the body, such as the kidneys, which are part of our filtering system.
  • MSM powder benefits the body by dramatically reducing recuperation time from strenuous exercise and long hours of work.
  • Sulphur powder helps relieve muscular aches and pains.
  • MSM powder benefits the body by reducing inflammation due to injury or inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.
  • Sulphur their cell walls had become more leathery or stronger, thus reducing the absorption of sugar by the cells.


Inflammation & Swelling

  • When the water pressure inside a cell is greater than the water pressure on the outside of the cell, there is inflammation and swelling. (The outer and intercellular fluid pressures are not equal.)
  • Sulphur enhances the permeability of the cell walls, therefore allowing the pressure on both sides of the wall to equalize, thus Methylsulfonylmethane is an important common mineral in the body and helps your body to relief the inflammation.


Arthritis; *Bursitis; Rheumatism; Hip Dysplasia & Flexibility:

  • MSM takes inflammation out of soft tissue and since pain comes from nerves in inflamed soft tissue, there is often relief from the pain of such inflammatory ailments as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, and hip dysplasia.
  • Another benefit of Methylsulfonylmethane is that it helps get the flexibility back into the tissues very rapidly. Some people have experienced relief in only 20 minutes! For others, it takes longer.

Bursitis is inflammation or irritation of a “bursa sac”, which are found all over the body.  They are filled with fluid that eases rubbing & friction between tissues like bones, muscles, tendons & skin.  Bursitis is common around major joints like the shoulder, elbows, hips or knee area.

Hip Dysplasia: Hip dysplasia is a term for infantile hip instability,  dislocation or shallowness of the hip socket. Hip instability and dislocation often occur during infancy, while shallow stable socket is often discovered in adolescence or adulthood.

MSM & Vitamin C

  • MSM, with Vitamin C (a free radical scavenger) assists the body build healthy new cells.
  • Methylsulfonylmethane, along with Vitamin C, may reduce scar tissue and wrinkles, and helps keep the skin more elastic.
  • Sulphur, along with Vitamin C, helps the hair and nails grow stronger and faster.
  • Methylsulfonylmethane has been shown to improve mental alertness.
  • Sulphur has been proven to help in the reduction and even the total elimination of allergies. When Methylsulfonylmethane is added to the diet, anti-allergy medication may be sharply reduced or eliminated.


MSM & Headaches, Cramps, Muscle Pain & Hormonal Imbalances (PMS):

Sulphur benefits women by reducing:
  • Headaches,
  • Cramps and
  • Muscle pain caused by hormonal imbalances, for example, PMS.

Women who have had monthly menstruation problems often no longer experience the headaches, cramps or muscle plain associated with their periods. Many women have these problems because their hormones are out of balance. The monthly cycle can be a shock to the system. When the hormones are brought into balance, the body functions normalize and these painful problems can be vastly reduced or eliminated.


MSM & Constipation

  • Sulphur helps relieve constipation.
  • Sulphur benefits include controlling & assisting chronic constipation. Many older people seem to have this problem and it can be a real medical concern. Reportedly many people suffering from constipation have had quick and continuing relief by supplementing their diet with sulphur. A good amount of Vitamin C along with the Methylsulfonylmethane has proven to be helpful for this condition.


MSM and eye membrane irritation:

  • Methylsulfonylmethane has been known to reduce eye membrane irritation (1 x knife edge in 50ml distilled water solution can be applied).
  • Sulphur is the 4th most plentiful mineral in the body, and so essential to life that it is found in every cell of virtually every animal and plant.

NB:  Always consult your Optometrist and/or Medical Practitioner before trying any of these protocols as Pure Haven Pty Ltd will not be held liable or responsible should you already have had an eye operation or any procedure on your eyes. It is imperative you consult your Optometrist.

MSM & Snoring

  • Studies have shown sufficient sulphur in the body may reduce or even eliminate snoring.

Some Symptoms of MSM (Sulphur) Deficiency:

  • Allergic Reactions
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Candida Infections
  • Cholesterol
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Damaged Skin
  • Diabetes
  • Diverticulosis
  • Lung Disfunction
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Painful Joints and Muscles
  • Scar Tissue

How can you get Methylsulfonylmethane into your diet?

Sulphur is naturally found in cruciferous vegetables such as:
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Bok Choy
  • Cauliflower
  • Eggs

However, cooking and food processing destroys the natural sulphur content of these foods, and it is therefore the easiest way to ensure you are getting sulphur into your diet is to include MSM Powder as a mineral supplement.  This will accelerate healing and detoxing the body to a more balanced, healthier state.

Heal the source & restore your balance and allow your body to create its own Healthy Immune System.
