What is MSM?
MSM is an organic form of Sulfur. When people think about Sulfur, they think of the yellow stinky mineral that is mined. But there is another type of Sulfur, an organic version that we as humans are critically dependent on for our bodies and health. Sulfur can alleviate many body issues including Arthritis, muscle pain, and joint inflammation. Unfortunately, the mass production of the foods we consume has essentially removed sulfur from our diets.
With the help of regular intake of Organic sulfur crystals we can reverse many side effects of the broken sulfur cycle that have greatly affected our health.
To be more formal, MethylSulfonyMethane (MSM), is an organic sulfur compound known for its amazing health benefits, natural pain relief, and joints muscle repair qualities. Organic sulfur crystals are an odorless, white, crystalline powder that is highly soluble in hot water. That’s it in a nutshell!
Scientifically, MSM is a derivative of DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide). Created from pine trees or petroleum-based, DMSO is a very important compound as it has been shown to be a miraculous pain reliever. For decades DMSO use has been restricted by the FDA for no real reason, yet it is used by many including: professional doctors, researchers and sports athletes for pain relief and inflammation control. Even 60 Minutes, did a great story on DMSO, wanting to know why it was banned by the FDA. Luckily for us though, Organic Sulfur MSM Crystals are available to all in supplement form.
What’s really important to note is that MSM is found in every living organism on earth including unprocessed, fresh foods (that have not grown in chemical fertilizers). This form of Sulfur is a very important nutrient, and makes up to 25% of our bodies including: hair, skin, joints, muscles and is also critical to our blood system and overall health. That’s pretty vital! However, we can only get organic sulfur in one way: from our diet.
We Broke the Sulfur Cycle
The earth goes through a ‘sulfur cycle’ (yes, it is a real thing) – this was the process in which sulfur makes a cyclical journey from the food chain into the earth and back again. Plant roots would collect and concentrate these sulfur sources giving the foods enough sulfur for our bodies as we consumed the foods.

Most of us know about some of the negative backlashes that came with the use of chemical fertilizers. Connecting the dots…the fertilizers broke down the sulfur cycle, which removed it from our diets. Yikes! Before chemical fertilizers were introduced to farmers, our soils were enriched with high levels of sulfur. Since 1954, the use of fertilizers and synthetic farming aides (GMO’s) has triggered some alarming cases. Explosion of diseases including Arthritis and Cancer, which as we know affects all of us in some way.
Look at the chart published by the CDC that shows the massive increase of Arthritis and joint related issues in the US population by decade over the past 50 years. It becomes much clearer that the rate of body breakdown is growing at epidemic proportions.
Source = CDC / Agingstats.gov
According to the Center for Disease Control (The CDC), rates and incidence of Arthritis are up by 4 million cases in the last 4 years alone! It is now considered by many doctors to be a national epidemic, as 42% of all Americans now suffer from some form of arthritic or joint pain issues.
50 million Americans (1 in 5) have been diagnosed with joint or arthritis issues and that will grow again to 67 million (1 in 4) by 2030. (Source CDC). How many people do you know that have joint, muscle and back pain daily? It’s not just stress, it’s that our bodies cannot effectively support our muscles and joints with the amount of stress, and processed foods we eat, and without proper sulfur our bodies are simply breaking down faster.
How Does a Sulfur Deficiency Impact Us?
It’s important to be informed about the vital minerals missing from our diet, but you also don’t need to panic. You can supplement it. It is true that natural sulfur content in foods has not fully disappeared, but to get even close to the sulfur our bodies need, we would need to eat pounds and pounds and of fruits and vegetables daily which is just not realistic. And not to mention, any sulfur that is in the food generally gets eliminated through processing, refrigeration, dehydration and cooking. You would have to consume a completely raw diet to absorb any sulfur in your foods.
Here is where Organic MSM Sulfur Crystals come in. Studies conducted by Dr. Stanley Jacob at the Oregon Health Science University in Portland proved sulfur benefits in more than 15,000 patients. After experimenting with DMSO – Diethyl Sulfoxide (MSM is a derivative of DMSO), Dr. Jacobs learned that it is a very important compound in relieving pain. The results concluded relief from Arthritis, back pain, headaches, athletic injuries, Asthma, carpel tunnel syndrome, and Autism to name a few. The sulfur crystals Dr. Jacobs tested are the same ones we use and sell today. Dr. Jacobs used this form of sulfur to cure and correct many issues from arthritis to diverticulitis.
Organic sulfur crystals are important because sulfur enables the transport of oxygen across cell membranes, and oxygen is necessary for healthy cellular regeneration for humans. This means that because our bodies are lacking sulfur…our cells are not regenerating the way they can be. When our bodies have enough sulfur and the transport of oxygen is taking place fully it allows us to feel our best because our cells are regenerating efficiently. This process is a primary function of organic sulfur. When we remove sulfur from our bodies we get a deficiency and this is evident in many bodily issues. If your cells cannot regenerate to the best of their ability it weakens our immune system and puts our health at risk. You can also see the difference in your skin as aging attributes will be visible such as wrinkling of the skin and sagging.
Sulfur deficiencies result in less optimal functioning of each cell in the body. Think of it this way: the moment when your cell phone starts to lose power and the backlight dims, it doesn’t perform its best. That is what the cells in your body are doing. Of course, sulfur deficiency can be reversed and cells will repair and be in good health. As they repair, we see miraculous turnaround in the body and pain relief for many body issues including the following:
- Healthy cartilage, joint and muscle repair.
- Muscle pain reduction, and joint inflammation reduction.
- Promotes fast healing in the muscles and prevents them from becoming sore.
- Sulfur increases flexibility in the tissues within the body and increases blood circulation.
- Liver and Cellular regeneration. It eliminates “free radicals “in the body.
- Naturally reduces allergies to pollens and certain foods.
- Blood Stream Oxygenation – making it a powerful booster to the immune system. You get sick way less.
- Nutrient Transport into Cells, amazing antioxidant.
- Detoxification of Cells – Removal of Toxins and Heavy Metals.
- Supports creation of Insulin.
- Strong bones and teeth and nails.
- Radiant, supple and tight skin.
- Strong, thick hair.
There are so many important items in that list that make such a difference to your health and the way you are supposed to feel. The more ‘vain’ attributes such as tight skin and thick hair are added bonuses and more reason to get sulfur back into your diet. Everyone can relate to at least one item on that list that causes them trouble in their daily lives which makes Sulfur deficiency more than just a muscle and joint problem – it’s a health problem. These problems can be reversed by supplementing.
It seems a little surreal that a mineral could make such a difference on body pains. But it does. And we have the most current explanation for the way MSM impacts pain:
• MSM is a natural analgesic: it blocks the transfer of pain impulses through nerve fibers (C-fibers).
• MSM blocks inflammations and inflammatory processes. MSM enhances the activity of cortisol, a natural anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the body.
• MSM improves the permeability of cell membranes. This improves the uptake of nutrients and many vitamins and the elimination of waste products and excess cellular fluids.
• MSM dilates blood vessels, enhancing the blood circulation. This, too, helps to eliminate waste products from the body, which speeds up healing.
• MSM is a muscle relaxant. This is an important and often overlooked benefit of MSM. Many chronic pains are aggravated by chronic muscle tension in the body.
• MSM aids the natural defense mechanisms in the body by regulating the prostaglandin metabolism, and regulates the formation of antibodies and immune complexes.
We can see from the explanation above that MSM is a valuable solution to chronic pain and other bodily functions. Without sulfur, we see decrease in the internal performance of our bodies.
The Beauty Mineral – MSM For Hair And Skin
Here is a fun fact:sulfur is known as the ‘beauty mineral’. It’s difficult to connect the sulphur we know (the smelly one) to beauty. But it’s true – skin is more beautiful if cells are able to regenerate.
Here is an example: Our nails and hair consist of a tough protein called keratin (no, not the hair conditioner), which is high in sulfur, and our connective tissue contain proteins with flexible bonds. As you age the flexible bonds lose their elasticity – which leads to wrinkles and sagging and all the other wonderful joys of visible aging. The lack of sulfur in our diets can definitely speed this process along. In addition to all the medical issues we listed, sulfur also has an impact on the outer body as well.
What else do we need sulfur for?
- Our body’s electron transport system (the energy factories of our cells)
- Vitamin-B1 and biotin conversion
- Proper insulin function
The Live Blood and Cellular Matrix Study organized by the Human Body Project in 1999 showed that healthy cellular metabolism is the basis for cellular regeneration of all our cells. Without intracellular oxygen, we begin to degenerate long before our biological clock runs out. Hence why there is such a huge market for surgical and non-surgical remedies to make us appear younger. But in reality, if we had proper sulfur in our diets we wouldn’t need to resort to these remedies.
Who Should Take MSM Supplements?
Simple answer: Everyone.
A broad answer, but absolutely accurate. Everyone can benefit from it in one way or another at the very least.
We all want to be healthy, we all want to extend our youth and live life to the fullest. But what many of don’t realize is that our bodies are not feeling or even looking the way they are supposed to. That being said it is important for everyone to take organic MSM sulfur crystals.
- Athletes can benefit from it through quicker recovery after training
- People which degenerate diseases can use it to aide their health and quality of life
- Those suffering with Arthritis can use it to relieve joint pain
- Anyone who suffers from back pain, neck pain and other chronic issues that cause constant pain
- The waitress / waiter who suffers from carpel tunnel can use subside pain and further damage
Aside from the average person who suffers from everyday common pains or those looking to make themselves appear fresher-faced, those suffering from issues who seek relief and repair should use sulfur immediately for the following:
- Tennis Elbow
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
Organic MSM sulfur crystals are important for everyone. They are not meant for just one case. That being said, MSM is also not the cure for solving all health problems. It is a food supplement that reverses sulfur deficiency and allows our body to function the way it is supposed to. This doesn’t mean it’s going to cure cancer, but it does mean that it may help prevent diseases and other medical issues that we previously listed.
What Can I Expect from Taking Organic MSM Sulfur Crystals?
They can be taken orally daily to reverse ones Sulfur deficiency. It really is as simple as that.
But there are a few things to be aware of. It is a non-toxic supplement which means you cannot overdose on it. We recommend 2 spoonfuls daily to get the amount of sulfur your body needs – one in the morning followed by another spoonful in the evening. We aren’t going to sugar coat it, it doesn’t taste like candy. It has a bitter taste – but after you get used to it and start feeling the positive effect it has your body you will be more than satisfied. Some tips on masking the taste: Add a squeeze of lime, or drink a glass of orange juice immediately after consumption.
Organic MSM sulfur crystals aid in detoxification. So you may experience detox effects within the body. It is important to know that this is normal and part of the process. Generally, the stronger the symptoms are, the more toxins had been stored in the body. Once you are past the detox you will not experience symptoms again.
The organic MSM sulfur crystals we sell are the same ones Dr. Jacob used in his studies. Our organic sulfur provides the most sulfur content of any source on the market today. That is why we provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on our Organic Sulfur MSM Crystals.
Be aware of pills and powdered versions of organic sulfur. They are not the same, and will not perform the same. Pills and powders are typically mixed with other fillers lowering the quantity and quality of the MSM and sulfur content. Powders are mixed with anti-caking agents to stop clumping, and reduce the ability for your body to absorb the product. It is important to use a pure, uncontaminated form of MSM, such as the crystals we sell at The Happy Body Store, to feel (and see) results.
Finally feel the way you are supposed to feel and see the difference organic MSM sulfur crystals have your body. You will be amazed.
