The MSM Story-One of Nature's Primary Sources of Organic Dietary Sulfur!
The human body requires a continuous supply of usable sulfur, and MSM is
one of the primary organic sulfur-containing molecules for use by living
organisms. From life's earliest beginnings, primitive marine organisms
(blue-green algae and phytoplankton) have absorbed inorganic sulfur from
ocean waters and produced organic sulfur molecules, primarily dimethyl
sulfonium salts. These salts are released back into the sea, where they
are converted to dimethyl sulfide, which readily evaporates, ending up
in the upper atmosphere. Dimethyl sulfide is then oxidized by UV light,
forming DMSO and MSM. The two compounds are delivered to land masses in
rain water, and absorbed by plants. MSM is a stable end-product of this
process, and thus serves as a primary source of sulfur in the food
Though present on earth since before life appeared on dry land, and
known to science since the 1950's, MSM has only recently been recognized
as having importance in human nutrition.
Why the Human Body Needs MSM
MSM occurs naturally in the blood, body fluids and tissues. It is now
believed that a minimum MSM concentration of 0.2 parts per million is
necessary for the body to function normally. MSM may be the most easily
absorbed and non-toxic source of nutritional sulfur occurring in nature.
Sulfur is a structural mineral that maintains the strength of various
tissues by forming sulfur "tie-bars" (sulfhydryl bonds) between
connective tissue proteins. MSM serves as a readily available source of
sulfur for this function, and thus helps maintain the pliancy of tissues
and cell membranes. Repair of damaged tissue depends upon a supply of
sulfur for continuation of reactions involving sulfhydryl groups (-SH).
Sulfur is required for the maintenance of healthy hair, skin and nails.
In view of the presence of MSM in biological systems since the beginning
of evolution, it is logical to assume that all higher life forms,
including humans and animals, are well adapted to use MSM as a sulfur
