Organic sulfur is among the most common minerals in the human body, and is an important component of cells. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of organic sulfur that supplies sulfur-containing amino acids, or SAAs, that act as building blocks for the formation of bones and joints.**
MSM is also known for aiding in the production of collagen and keratin. Collagen is also a major component of firm, supple skin. Keratin is another component of healthy skin, hair, and nails.** For its biological activities in supporting collagen and keratin, methylsulfonylmethane has become a popular anti-aging and beautifying nutrient for youthful-looking hair, skin and nails.**
MSM has been shown to decline in the human body with age. Methylsulfonylmethane may be replenished via supplements, some of which may enable easier absorption and utilization by the human body. Natural organic sulfur supplements are usually presented in capsules and powders. Topical creams are also available for both skin and joint-nourishing applications.** MSM is often featured alongside glucosamine/chondroitin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid to enhance support.
