MSM is a natural
form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms. Present in low concentrations
in body fluids and tissues, it is found in a variety of fresh foods including
most fruits and vegetables, milk and some grains. Although present in most unprocessed
foods, MSM is readily lost due to its volatile nature. Unless the diet is composed
of primarily raw foods, it is unlikely that sufficient MSM will be ingested to
significantly contribute to the nutritional sulfur requirement. A low concentration
of MSM is being associated with adverse stress, both psychological and physical,
organ and tissue malfunction, fatigue and susceptibility to disease. MSM has been
found to normalize certain body functions in patients displaying physiological
symptoms of stress, specifically gastrointestinal upset, inflammation of mucous
membranes, allergic reactions, drug hypersensitivity, inflammatory disorders including
arthritis, muscle cramps and infectious parasites.

in the body, and is essential in the regeneration and nourishment
of healthy cells.
