MSM is short for Methylsulfonylmethane, a naturally occurring form of sulphur. Our MSM is derived from Canadian plants such as flaxseeds, and not from petroleum sources. Sulphur is known as the “beauty mineral” because it is great for glowing skin, shiny hair, and strong nails. MSM affects the cell membrane in removing fluids and toxins, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. MSM acts as a carrier, and helps other nutrients to penetrate the cells. It helps to build important amino acids which are needed for nearly all of your bodily functions.
There are two methods used for purifying MSM, crystallisation and distillation. Crystallisation is cheaper and risks impurities. Our MSM is purified by distillation, 100% pure. No fillers, binders, additives or flow agents. Most MSM is fossil based, and crystallized, which will not give as pure a product as distillation.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Our Canadian MSM is Bio-based, it is very pure, it's key advantages are:
Analysis: On independent analysis we achieve >100% purity (typically >101%)
Source material: That the source material (DMSO) has it’s methoxyl groups derived from organic based lignins, rather than methanol alternative.
Purity: The final product is distilled to gain a superior level of purity. This is like distilling water to remove impurities, and as far as we are aware, our supplier is one of only two MSM manufacturers in the world to do this.
No flow additives: No flow additives, some other brands have it as standard inclusion.
Our MSM crystals are 34% elemental sulphur.
MSM is very bitter, and it’s hard to disguise the taste, which is why we've put them into capsules for you. Swallow with water which hasn’t been chlorinated or fluoridated for maximum absorption. Or drink with a fruit juice with a high (alkaline) pH level, such as cranberry or grapefruit.
Suggested serving size: for a maintenance dose start with 1-3 caps twice every day, and work up to 10 caps every day. Ideally, switch to the crystals, they taste bitter to start with but after a week you won't mind the taste. You can mis it with orange juice and remember that it's good for you! There is no recommended dosage, we suggest taking the lowest amount that enables you to achieve the desired benefits. You cannot take too much, the body removes what's not needed.
