Do you know how to buy the best MSM on the market?
There are two kinds of MSM on
the market. MSM that is manufactured here in the United States and
the MSM that is manufactured out of the United States. MSM
manufactured out of the United States is cheaper but not as
affective as MSM made in the United States. Cheaper isn't always best. Cheaper means you will not get the best result from MSM because
you are using a product that is contaminated by other impurities. We only carry Cardinal
- Bergstrom OptiMSM which is one of the purest forms of Optimsm on the
market. Before buying MSM dietary supplement products please read the
first paragraph on this page. Make sure the supplier you buy your
msm from buys their MSM from a well known United States manufacturer
like Cardinal - Bergstrom Nutrition. If they don't, your MSM
product could contain unknown fillers. It's the unknown fillers that keep you from reaping the
benefits of pure msm. You will be well informed about
how to purchase the safest OptiMSM product on the market.
For best results only buy pure OptiMSM. OptiMSM stands for
purity. MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane. MSM
is a naturally-occurring nutrient found in small amounts of many
foods. As a dietary supplement, MSM is synthesized. When made
correctly, it is identical to that found in nature.
If this is your first time to visit our
Arthritis MSM Supplement Center website please know that we only
sell pure MSM. OptiMSM is the premium brand of MSM preferred
by manufacturers who care about quality. We do not buy or sell
products with fillers and should not be compared to other MSM
websites that are growing by numbers on the internet that do!
Not all MSM is created equal for different production processes
yield different degrees of purity. There are two methods by which
MSM is purified which are through crystallization or
distillation. The cheaper MSM on the
market is processed through crystallization and you get what
you pay for.
Crystallization is a lower cost process, but increases the risk of
producing an impure product. Purity achieved by
crystallization is dependent upon the quality of the local water and
other materials used in manufacturing. A crystal inherently
contains occlusions where these water based impurities can become
entrapped. This is of great concern in countries such as India and
China, where water quality and sanitation have been identified as
substandard. MSM that comes from China has been proven
to be contaminated with trace quantities of butylated hydroxtoluene
(BHT), a phenolic compound usually added to foods as a preservative.
MSM purified by distillation uses heat not water to separate the by
products and impurities of manufacturing. A more cost
intensive process, distillation ensures that the final product
contains only pure MSM. OptiMSM is not a crystal, it contains
no occlusions to trap impurities. Just as water is distilled for
purity, so is OptiMSM. Look for the logo OptiMSM label when
you want to be positively sure that your MSM is positively pure.
Arthritis MSM Supplement Center only sells pure quality MSM (OptiMSM).
Watch out for waxy, fatty substances like Magnesium Stearate that
could be added into your MSM product. Read your label
Look for the UPC symbol on the bottle or jar along with the
manufacturers name and address. The best thing to do is ask
for a copy of the certificate of analysis and look at the melting
point. It should be at 109.7 C. Our MSM is 99.9% and
is a perfect alternative for those who cannot use shellfish-based
joint support products. The other .1% is moisture.
Your body consists of water, salt and
MSM. MSM is prevalent throughout the human body. You can buy MSM in
powder, crystal, flake or capsule form. MSM stands for Methul
Sulfonyl Methane, which is sometimes called organic sulfur.
MSM can also be written as DMSO2 . The
second chemical formula means the exact same thing as MSM. The
second formula can be read as di methyl sulfonyl oxygen.
MSM is mostly identified with joint health, a recent published
study shows that MSM supports normal immune and respiratory
function. You will see on this website that I have listed my product
by using the word crystal - flakes. This does not mean that
our product is made in crystal form. The name crystal
means like sugar as in appearance only. I use the word crystal
as a term used for the internet search engines for most people when
looking up msm on the internet key in the word crystal because of
the crystallization form of MSM that is spreading around India,
China and other United States MSM suppliers. Our product is in flake form not crystal form. The proper
word for MSM is flake or powder not crystal. Don't let the
crystallization and distillation words confuse you. Think
OptiMSM from Arthritis MSM Supplement Center when shopping around
for your MSM needs. Arthritis MSM Supplement Center's MSM

Many movie actors use MSM, here are a few statements:
MSM has gained considerable recognition by the late actor James Coburn and Robert Culp, which have been a driving force in educating the
public through media broadcasting and claiming about the benefits of
MSM and how it had changed their quality of their life. MSM is nontoxic! What MSM does is
to serve as a natural remedy to relieve the pain and inflammation.
MSM provides relief for as long as you take it. Sometimes health
problems donít return even if you stop taking MSM after you have
taken it for awhile.
MSM Side Effects
Some people define natural as
a substance that occurs naturally in the body and in plants.
By that definition, MSM is natural. The raw material used to
produce OptiMSM is of natural origin. So it is true that OptiMSM is
produced from natural sources. MSM supplements are a natural food substance and is not at
all harmful to the body in any way. MSM supplements is neither a
medicine or a drug. MSM is a member of the sulfur family but should never be confused with sulfa
drugs, to which some people are allergic. MSM is
non-allergenic and does not interfere with any other pharmaceutical
medicines or supplements. MSM is also called organic sulfur. MSM the
sulfur compound is a nutrient found in the human diet and the
natural diets of virtually all other vertebrates. MSM sulfur
belongs in the same chemical family as oxygen, and in oxygen
depleted environments, sulfur often replaces oxygen as the source of
chemical energy upon which life thrives. MSM sulfur is a dietary
supplement that does not require a doctor's
prescription. Because there are few nerves in the bones, our pain
comes from the soft tissue. Aspirin shuts off the nerves, but
the muscles are still damaged. MSM claims are that msm takes
out the inflammation, permits the muscles to heal and prevents them
from becoming sore.
MSM is used around the world
for relief from muscle pain, joint pain and inflammation. MSM is a
nutritional mineral that can help to normalize the immune system.
MSM stands for Methylsulfonylmethane, a stable odorless metabolite
of DMSO. MSM supplements do not cure arthritis. They reduce the
swelling that causes pain. Why do we need MSM supplements? To
get rid of pain! MSM is so effective that doctors are able to
reduce their patients medication dosage. Some can even
discontinue their medications in place of MSM sulfur. The
proper acid alkaline balance of the body cannot be maintained
without sulfur. Sulfur is vital to the creation and
regeneration of the body's tissues. Sulfur is an indispensable
component in human nutrition. It is found in every cell in the body.
Sulfur itself is held mainly in the muscles, skin, bones, nails and
hair. One of the many advantages of MSM
is that it is a small molecule with a molecular weight of 94. It is
bio available and capable of passing through tissues. MSM relieves pain and inflammation in several ways. It blocks pain
impulses by precluding their passage along C fibers within nerves.
These fibers carry messages of pain from a site of damaged tissue in
the body to the brain. MSM also reduces inflammation. Inflammation
can place pressure on nerves and other tissues which intensifies
pain. MSM promotes blood flow, which enhances the healing processes.
MSM reduces muscle spasm Ė a condition invariably present when the
musculoskeletal system is damaged.
MSM is rapidly gaining a reputation
as a natural solution for pain, as more people become aware of the
risks in taking the over the counter pain relievers and prescription
medications. Medical authorities have continually cautioned
physicians and patients regarding the use of non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory pain relievers known as NSAIDs. These pain
relievers such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, etc...are
believed responsible for more than 76,000 hospitalizations each year
due to gastrointestinal bleeding. An estimated 41,000
hospitalizations and 3,300 deaths involving the elderly are
attributed annually to NSAIDs. MSM is not intended as medical
advice and should not be confused with medical care but only a
source for information and educational purposes only. If you are
taking medications do not stop taking them just because you found
this website. Consult your doctor of your choice first. If
you are going to have surgery it is recommended to stop taking MSM 4
days prior to surgery. If your msm comes clumped in the jar
please do not be alarmed for that is the nature of the product.
It does not mean you have bad product. Just sift it or crush
with your fingers...
