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 may have greatly affected our health.
To be more formal, MethylSulfonyMethane (MSM), is an organic sulfur compound which many people know is used as a supplement in relation to pain, inflammation and arthritis.
Organic sulfur crystals are an odorless, white, crystalline powder that is highly soluble in water.
Scientifically, MSM is a derivative of DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide). Created from DMSO a very important compound that has been researched for years for its effects on pain and inflammation.
What’s really important to note is that MSM is found in every living organism on earth including unprocessed, fresh foods. This form of Sulfur is fully bio-active, meaning that its fully natural to the body.
Why Many Researchers Think We Need MSM
The earth goes through a ‘sulfur cycle’ 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. Some studies suggest farming overuse has broken down the sulfur cycle, which has seriously limited it in our diets.
Before chemical fertilizers were introduced to farmers, our soils were enriched with much high levels of sulfur. Since 1954, the use of fertilizers and synthetic farming aides has become far too overused, and greatly reduced natural mineral content in our food chain.
At the same time incidence of diseases including Arthritis and Cancer, have increased dramatically in the general public over the past 75 years, could this be a reason some ask?
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.

According to the Center for Disease Control (The CDC) 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.
Studies conducted by Dr. Stanley Jacob at the Oregon Health Science University in Portland showcased sulfurs benefits in more than 15,000 patients. After experimenting with DMSO – Diethyl Sulfoxide (again MSM is a derivative of DMSO), Dr. Jacobs learned that it is a very important compound in relation to pain, inflammation and much more.
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 potentially lacking sulfur…our cells may not be regenerating optimally.
