Why MSM 1/4 lbs.?
MSM is highly soluble in water and concentrates in atmospheric water vapor, returning to earth in rain. MSM is present in fresh fruits and vegetables in amounts ranging from 1 to 4 mg/kg. The adult body contains approximately 140 grams of sulfur, the third most abundant mineral in the body after calcium and phosphorus. It has been found that MSM can be ingested in virtually unlimited quantities without toxic effects, unlike Methionine and Cysteine that can cause toxic symptoms when consumed in large quantities. A normal level of circulating MSM in the adult body is about 0.2 mg/kg and between 4 and 11 mg of MSM are excreted in the urine daily.
Research suggests that a minimum concentration of MSM must be maintained to support normal function and structure. Several studies suggest that the concentration of MSM in the body diminishes with age. The consequences of reduced MSM / sulfur are consistent with the changes characteristic of aging: stiffening of muscles and joints, wrinkling of the skin, and decreased elasticity of lung tissues and arterial blood vessels. Supplementation with MSM provides a highly concentrated source of this nutrient, which may help ameliorate the progression of these degenerative changes.
How does MSM 1/4 lbs. aid your health?
MSM is not a medicine, a drug, or a food additive. It is a FOOD - a pure white sulfur powder. It comes from the ocean and is water soluble. Sulfonyl sulfur is found in plants, meats, dairy products, and vegetation. In fact, it is in every living thing. MSM is a natural part of every cell function and is concentrated in the connective tissues of the skin, nails, and hair. MSM is a source of organic sulfur and is a key nutrient for its diverse health benefits. Though MSM is found in many fresh foods, modern agriculture methods and food processing cause its depletion. This makes it difficult to get adequate amounts of MSM in the daily diet. Rich's MSM helps restore the body balance with a needed natural source of sulfur for support.
