The analgesic properties of methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM) have long been recognized and many people with osteoarthritis use MSM to relieve joint pain, thereby reducing reliance on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can have serious side effects. MSM may improve a person’s mobility by slowing the breakdown of cartilage, enhancing the body’s inflammatory response, and stimulating the formation of new joint and connective tissues. Improved mobility means a better quality of life, improved athletic ability, joint flexibility, and comfort.
MSM’s benefits for the musculoskeletal system are wide-ranging as this natural, organic sulphur compound is also a potent antioxidant that has been shown to reduce muscle damage after exercise. Athletes taking MSM tend to experience less muscle soreness after a workout, recover faster for more advantageous training and have healthier bone and cartilage. This natural compound may also confer a protective effect on lung tissue.
Each easy-to-swallow capsule delivers 1000 mg MSM for use on its own or in combination with chondroitin and glucosamine. Natural Factors MSM uses OptiMSM, the premium form of MSM, certified for quality and consistency and used in clinical studies of efficacy and safety. Supplementing the diet with MSM supports healthy active lifestyles, benefits the connective tissues and reduced pain associated with osteoarthritis.
