More on MSM

Scientific studies have shown MSM (Methyl-Sulphonyl-Methane) to be effective in the following:

Elevating cortisol levels thereby relieving the symptoms of mild Adrenal Insufficiency;

As a natural hormone balancer;

A powerful antioxidant – it aids in the production of glutathione (GSH), taurine, and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) and other detoxification enzymes;

Maintaining cell membrane permeability enabling the proper expulsion of all toxins from body cells thus allowing nutrients to enter for health and repair;

Normalising collagen formation;

Cleansing and purifying the blood, organs and body cells and tissues by means of binding itself to toxic waste, metals and chemicals, all of which are then excreted via the kidneys;

It coates the intestines so enabling the eradication of pathogens adhering to the intestinal lining and allowing repair wherever necessary.  Proper assimilation of dietary nutrients (particularly the B-group vitamins) and toxic elimination improves providing overall support to the possibly overburdened liver and kidneys and improving general health in the process.

A very interesting and important mineral overall and one which deserves further extensive research.
