MSM as a nutrient
The abbreviation MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane and is an organic sulfur compound or organic sulfur. MSM sulfur is often also known as dimethylsufon and occurs naturally as a sulfur compound in plants, animals and also in the human body. MSM has always been an important nutrient and part of our diet and is mainly consumed through meat, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products. Unfortunately, the problem is that preparation with heat greatly reduces the MSM content and the body is therefore often not sufficiently supplied.
Sulfur in the body
Basically, sulfur is considered a vital mineral, which accounts for as much as 0.2% of our entire body. This is known to few people, but this is five times the amount of magnesium and 40 times the amount of iron in our body. The main functions of MSM or sulfur in our bodies are, among other things, the production of hormones, amino acids and enzymes. In addition, sulfur is considered a very important component of collagen, which in turn is an organic component of connective tissue (bones, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, etc.). This is another reason why sulfur tablets are often called joint food.
An insufficient supply of MSM or sulfur can result in unpleasant and unhealthy symptoms. Such symptoms can include joint pain, circulatory problems, dull hair, brittle fingernails and also flabby connective tissue. Of course, the symptoms mentioned cannot be attributed exclusively to a sulfur deficiency, but definitely an insufficient supply of MSM can promote these deficiency symptoms..
Pure MSM or MSM tablets in the form of dietary supplements can help to counteract a sulfur deficiency. VitaCare MSM capsules contain 1,000 mg of high-quality MSM powder (methylsulfonylmethane) per capsule. Thanks to the high dosage, taking just one capsule with sufficient liquid is enough to reach the optimal daily amount. The natural sulfur extract of VitaCare also has a high bioavailability and can therefore develop its complete effect.
