MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms. This natural compound, researched since 1979, provides the chemical links needed to form and maintain numerous different types of tissues found in the human body, including connective tissue such as articular cartilage. While MSM is a natural component of almost all fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meat, food-processing methods reduce sulfur levels, making supplementation more important than ever. NOW® MSM is tested to meet a minimum 99.7% purity.
What is MSM?
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a form of biologically available sulfur, naturally occurring in extremely tiny amounts in plants. MSM contains 34% elemental sulfur, by weight. Sulfur is the 10th most abundant element in the universe. The sulfur that it supplies represents about the eighth most abundant mineral in the human body, about as much as potassium and more than sodium.
MSM is chemically known as dimethyl sulfone. Commercially, all MSM is chemically produced but nature-identical; in other words, it’s the natural form.
