MSM (methylsufonylmethane) provides sulfur, a vital building block of joints, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails. It also provides the methyl groups, which support many vital biochemical processes in the body, including energy production, pain relief, and joint function.
Home use: Mix 1/2 level teaspoon of MSM with water, juice, or other non-alcoholic beverages. MSM has a slightly bitter flavor and is best taken in juice or another flavored drink to mask the flavor. 1/2 teaspoon is equivalent to 2.5 grams. Two to five grams works best for most people. Start with 1/2 teaspoon per day and work up slowly until desired dose is reached. Divided doses are recommended for those taking larger quantities. For inflammatory conditions it is best used along with Elements Transdermal Spray and Elements Trace Mineral Soak.
