MSM Flakes, 16oz (Opti-MSM) - The Raw Food World
Pure MethylSulfonylMethane (MSM)
MSM is a sulfur-bearing molecule found in all living organisms. Sulfur is one of the five elements of life and is needed to form crucial blood proteins and amino acids. When our diet lacks MSM, the cells become rigid and lose the ability to flex back. These are cells that are associated with aging.
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is a naturally occurring, organically-bound dietary sulfur assisting in multiple functions in the body.
MSM facilitates the exchange of oxygen, carbon dioxide and nutrients, which promote the healing process of skin. MSM is a bioavailable source of dietary sulfur contributing essential sulfur for the synthesis of proteins, hormones, connective tissue, and enzymes. As a central component of collagen, sulfur assists the body in preventing inflammation and facilitating repair of connective tissues. MSM is more beneficial when taken with a complete Vitamin C whole food complex (MSM Magic or Ultra Anti-Oxidant +C), which is known to be essential for synthesis of connective tissue, enhancing the absorption and utilization of MSM.
Because bio-nutritional sulfur plays such a major role in these healthy body functions and others, it was found that supplementation with MSM improves many health problems such as: allergies, asthma, emphysema, lung dysfunction, arthritis, headaches, skin problems, stomach and digestive tract problems, circulation, cell osmosis and absorption.
MSM acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It also inhibits muscle spasm and increases blood flow. MSM is critical to the formation of connective tissue of all types. MSM is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms, including human body fluids and tissues.
Sulfur is one of the most basic building blocks of the structure of the body. Without the proper amount of sulfur or MSM in our system, we cannot produce good, healthy cells. When our system is deficient in MSM, our bodies cannot make enough good cells to overcome the effects of the sick cells. We then are subject to various illnesses, aches, pains and allergies until we correct the problem with good healthy cells. The body wants to heal itself, if it can get the proper nourishment. We all need a little extra MSM each day for good health! Without the proper amount of MSM in our bodies, the amino acids will continue to build the glands, but fail to produce the correct enzymes, making us prone to unnecessary illness.
MSM is the flexible bond between proteins. When a cell dies, a new cell takes its place. Without the needed amount of MSM, it attaches but becomes rigid. When tissues lose their flexibility, problems develop with the lungs and other parts of the body.
MSM detoxifies the body and increases blood circulation.
Because there are few nerves in the bones, our pain comes from the soft tissue. MSM takes out the inflammation, permits the muscles to heal and prevents them from becoming sore.
An allergic reaction is simply your body's reaction to something foreign in your system. These foreign proteins and free radicals invade your body and cause reactions and problems. Your body responds with a sneeze, wheeze, swollen, puffy eyes, etc.
When you take MSM, your cells become more permeable, enabling your body to quickly wash out any foreign particles in your system. Every twelve hours your body is designed to flush each cell of any unwanted debris. When your diet is deficient, the cell walls become hard and stiff and this hinders fluid flow through the cell walls. MSM softens the cell walls, allowing foreign proteins and free radicals to be washed out of your system. If enough MSM is taken, all of the foreign particles can be flushed from your system and your allergies will no longer occur.
Experiments using MSM that contains radio labeled sulfur have shown that after ingestion, MSM gives up its sulfur to form the collagen and keratin of the skin, hair and nails to form the essential amino acids methionine, cysteine and to form serum proteins. Studies suggest that the level of MSM in the body decreases with aging. As a dietary supplement, MSM is recommended for neutralizing and eliminating toxins as well as alleviating conditions of environmental and food allergies, pain from inflammatory disorders, gastrointestinal ailments, and infection.
MSM helps to minimize wrinkles and give a healthier, vibrant appearance as well as stronger hair and nails.
Wrinkles: When the body replaces old skin cells, if there is a deficiency of MSM, the new cells are stiff and contribute to wrinkling. MSM supplementation helps the body replace bad cells with good, healthy, elastic cells. In time, wrinkles go away. Brown and black spots and skin tumors can be arrested and reversed as new cells replace the "insufficient" cells.
Lung Dysfunction: Smoking does not always cause Emphysema. Horses and dogs get emphysema, and they don't smoke: It is a deficiency of MSM that causes this condition (welding fumes, smoke, etc. are an aggravation), and supplementation with MSM can help reverse it.
Diabetes: Even diabetics can benefit from MSM supplementation. Self-regulation of blood sugar can occur because MSM allows for proper absorption of blood sugars and insulin, and even repair of a damaged pancreas. When there is an MSM deficiency, cell membranes become less permeable, the pancreas overworks and ultimately fails, while blood sugars saturate the blood stream instead of entering the cells to provide nourishment and energy.
Sore Joints and Muscles: Testimonials of many athletes point to the ability of MSM to increase athletic stamina and eliminate sore muscles. This is because MSM increases the ability of the body to eliminate wastes and toxins at the cellular level, where good health begins.
Candida Yeast: This organism belongs in the large intestine, where it co-exists with acidophilus and prevents the take-over of harmful bacteria. When acidophilus is damaged or eliminated by antibiotic use, Candida can overgrow to the extent that it becomes "systemic", i.e. gets into the blood stream, where it competes for nutrients and emits waste materials that produce myriad symptoms of disease. MSM, by balancing the pH of the blood stream and tissues of the body, prevents Candida from living anywhere outside the intestines, where it belongs.
MSM has been effective in helping many people with:

Our MSM comes in a pure crystalline form that dissolves easily into water or juice. It is best taken in the morning on an empty stomach for maximum absorption. MSM works very well in conjunction with vitamin C. Camu Camu is said to contain more vitamin C than any other known botanical source.
We recommend mixing 1 tsp of MSM with 1/4 tsp Camu Camu in water or juice. This combination is extremely beneficial for immunity and essential for building supple, radiant skin.
