Why do we need MSM?
Why do we need sulphur? Unknown to most of us, sulphur is one of the five basic elements of life. Sulphur is so critical to the formation if connective tissue that without it we would literally be shapeless pools of protoplasm! Sulphur also provides the chemical links that create collagen and keratin needed for beautiful, healthy skin, hair and nails. Sulphur is an activator of thiamine, Vitamin C, biotin, pantothenic acid. Sulfuris used by the liver to manufacture bile, a key element in digestion and is an important component in insulin production. Sulphur also is essential in maintaining the body's crucial acid/alkaline(pH) balance. For all these reasons and more we need an abundant supply of sulphur.
But as scientists have found, the depletion of our soils and the heatand processing used in food preparation destroy or greatly reduce MSM levels in our fruits, vegetables and meats. Research has also shown that MSM levels decrease with age, resulting in symptoms of fatigue, tissue, and organ degeneration and increase susceptibility to disease. Fortunately, researchers have now developed MSM as a dietary supplement and have used it in research studies with extraordinary results!
