Did you know that only one ingredient can help you treat skin issues, reduce muscle fatigue, and reduce inflammation at the same time? As unbelievable as it sounds, this simple ingredient is also highly versatile and it can be added to any drink without altering its taste.
In case you are wondering which ingredient we are talking about, let us bring it into the light a little bit. However, you are probably already familiar with Methylsulfonylmethane…or MSM powder.
How MSM works:
MSM supplements provide the body with extra sulfur which is needed for the formation of methionine, helping form connective tissue, absorbing nutrients for energy, metabolizing foods, and helping the body process chemicals. Therefore, MSM boosts energy levels and combats fatigue, working as a performance enhancer.
1. Treats Osteoarthritis
This remarkable powder restores collagen production, improves flexibility and reduces joint inflammation. It has been scientifically shown that arthritis patients experienced a significant decrease in symptoms and improve the quality of their life after taking this MSM powder. Sulfur is needed for the bodily cells to release excess fluids which cause swelling, so MSM supplements help reduce inflammatory responses which cause stiffness and swelling.
2. Improves digestive problems
Given the fact that sulfur, which is found in MSM is of utmost importance when it comes to digestion, MSM prevents particles from leaching out the gut, where they can enter the bloodstream and start an inflammatory response. Besides lowering inflammation and allergic reactions, MSM helps rebuild the lining of the digestive tract and thus help treat Leaky Gut Syndrome.
3. Repairs and treats skin issues
It has been scientifically shown that topical cream containing MSM treats allergies, skin discoloration, and rosacea, as it lowers inflammation which causes these issues in the first place. It also eases sensitivity, reduces redness, and it evens out the skin tone. In addition to this, those who have tried it swear by its efficacy and claim that it also helps prevent sun damage, dark spots, scar formation, and wrinkles. The reason behind this is its ability to help the body retain collagen and keratin due to its sulfur content.
4. Lowers muscle pain and muscle spasms
Many studies suggests that MSM acts as natural analgesic, ably preventing and treating muscle pain as well as improving mobility. It has been proven that this powder works great after injuries, surgery, or exercise as it helps repair the fibrous tissue cells which break down during exercise. In addition to this, it restores permeability of cells walls within muscles, which in turn allows the nutrients pass through the tissues much easily.
5. Restores hair growth
Given the fact that MSM helps raise keratin and collagen levels, it also promotes formation of new hair strands. Therefore, this ingredient is ideal for those struggling with balding or thinning hair. Due to their ability to strengthen the hair, keratin and collagen are commonly found in hair care products.
6. Stress adaption
As mentioned above, MSM helps your body heal from exercise, injuries, and stress. It also boosts energy, reduces fatigue, and helps the body keep digestion in check.
