(NaturalNews) Tired of the exasperating pain of arthritis? It's bad enough that people have to bear with the limited movement due to the disease, but they actually have to suffer through the pain, with only a few pain relieving options. Not anymore. There is a healthy diet supplement known as MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane, a supplementary form of sulfur, which is commonly found in the tissue of living beings. MSM is good not just for arthritis, but also for muscles and ligaments. Thus this supplement helps in conditions like bursitis, muscle pain etc.
In order to look at MSM up close, more knowledge would be required by having some background information. It's not very difficult to understand- when sulfur compounds are released by ocean plankton, they rise and mix with ozone, and there they are turned into DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) and MSM by the action of sunlight.
MSM works in a very unique way on body tissues. It removes toxins from body cells. And what role does sulfur play? It plays important roles in many body systems and organs. There is sulfur in many body parts, like nails, skin and hair. Sulfur is also present in amino acids- the basic units of protein.
Benefits MSM offers many benefits, but one of the major benefits that it provides currently is joint pain relief. Oral MSM treatment is good against arthritic pain. Researches have also shown that MSM is good against muscle pain. A thing here to keep in mind is that it reduces pain and swelling of arthritis- it does not cure arthritis. It also controls stomach acidity and forms a protective coat on the intestinal tract; thus, parasites are unable to hang on. The result? The body produces more insulin, so carbohydrate metabolism is increased and wound healing ability gets better.
Its Safety Features MSM is inert in nature, is non pyretic and shows no unwanted pharmacological effects; so it is considered as safe as pure water. The best part of this supplement is that no-one can have an overdose of MSM- the body will automatically flush out the excess amount after 12 hours.
So in the end, why MSM? To say goodbye to the pain. It is an effective therapy and it is generally prescribed by doctors, as it reduces the need for medication. It is getting popular as a natural solution, and many people prefer this supplement as they realize the negative effects of over-the-counter pain relieving medications.
