Nutrient - MSM

(Methyl Sulphonyl Methane)

By Nutri People

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane) is popular as a food supplement and for applying to skin in creams and lotions. MSM is involved in making collagen and keratin, thereby helping maintain strong, shiny, smooth hair, clear youthful-looking skin and strong nails. It is found in insulin, which is important for healthy blood sugar balance. It works with vitamins B1, B5 and biotin, and alpha lipoic acid to maintain healthy metabolism and nerves. MSM is important for healthy joints, muscles, respiratory and immune systems, blood and blood clotting, gall bladder and liver function, and sleep. It helps build methione and cysteine, two amino acids important in liver detoxification. MSM is easily destroyed in food.
