MSM PLUS: Why
MSM is a form of sulfur used by your body to support growth and maintenance
of the connective tissue in your body such as cartilage, ligaments, tendons
and bones. It is found in many foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, grains,
milk, eggs, and lean meat. Processing, heat and long term storage can diminish
the amount of MSM contained in these foods or even cause it to disappear
Although you may be eating a well-balanced diet, you may need
additional supplementation of MSM to ensure that you are maintaining a
sufficient amount of it for use by your body. Not only does MSM support your
joints and connective tissue, it also supports your immune system and just
about every other part of your body. MSM Plus comes in three convenient forms
- tablets, crystals, and a moisturizing lotion that allows you to apply it
topically if you desire.
What is MSM PLUS
MSM (methylsufonylmethane) is organic sulfur in its natural form. Your body
uses this form of sulfur to help form glycosaminoglycans or GAGs. The GAGs are
spongy molecules that hold water to provide lubrication to the joints and act
as “shock absorbers.” GAGs are the basic substrate of cartilage, ligaments,
tendons and bones. During the day, connective tissue is constantly being
broken down and replaced so there is a constant need for adequate supplies of
The GAG chains not only fill the spaces between our cells, they allow
the transmission of nutrients, hormones, and metabolites between the blood and
tissue cells. Life Plus uses only high-grade MSM material that is manufactured
according to the patented process of the scientists who initially studied the
value of MSM to support overall health.
Since MSM is heat sensitive, it is
important that not only the initial raw material is properly handled and
processed, but that the manufacturer of the ultimate supplement must also use
care in processing to ensure that you are receiving the full nutritional value
of the supplement. Life Plus carefully monitors the manufacturing of MSM to
ensure that it retains its nutritional value when it reaches you in its final
MSM has more recently become used as a dietary supplement because of the
outgrowth of research on the well-known substance DMSO. MSM is a stable
metabolite of DMSO, odorless and a very efficient method for supplementation.
Actually, MSM is equivalent to DMSO but contains an additional atom of oxygen,
so it is actually DMSO2. Life Plus International's MSM PLUS uses the highest
quality MSM available.
Sulfur is an important body component. It is essential to life, and a major
component of all living things. It is an element that is quite often
overlooked as a nutrient, but yet is an important ingredient in several of the
very critical amino acids that make up the proteins contained in our muscles,
enzymes and other constituents in our body.
Sulfur is in the proteins which
constitute basic hair, nails and skin. The sulfur-containing structural
protein keratin is found throughout the body, from the epidermis to the hair
follicle to the bronchial epithelium of the lungs to the intestinal mucosa.
Sulfur-bearing amino acids are key components of many functional proteins and
enzymes, and important determinants in the "tertiary" three-dimensional
structures, many of which are held in place by permanent disulfide (-S-S-)
linkages. for example, in maintaining the hair in its natural inclination
toward straight or curly.
Sulfur & The Amino Acids
Sulfur is contained in the amino acids, methionine, cysteine and cystine, and
in the important sulfhydryl tripeptide glutathione. Dietary sulfur can be
incorporated into cysteine, cystine and glutathione. Animal studies using
radioactive tracers show that the sulfur in MSM can even be utilized to
prepare methionine. Key proteins dependent on, for example, the important
oxidation-reduction partners cysteine and cystine include:
- LH (luteinizing hormone)
- HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin)
- follicle-stimulating hormone
- sex steroid-binding protein
- human estrogen receptor
- thyroid transcription factor
- immunoglobulins (IgA , IgG, IgM)
- nucleic acids (RNA, DNA)
- EGF (epidermal growth factor)
- transmembrane proteins
- cell adhesion receptors
- collagen basement membrane
MSM is an abbreviation for Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane. It is a natural form of
sulfur found in all living organisms and is present in our body fluids and
tissues. It is found in many fresh foods including most fresh fruits and
vegetables, milk and some grains. Even though it is present in fresh foods, it
is easily destroyed in cooking, storing and processing.
Due to modern food
processing and cooking, sufficient MSM may not be present to provide
significant biological sulfur, so it makes sense to incorporate MSM PLUS as
part of your dietary supplement program when supplemental sulfur is desired.
especially for vegetarians as they may have a shortage of sulfur in their
diets. For those wishing to apply MSM directly to the skin, an elegant Organic
Body Lotion is available.
The development of MSM as a dietary supplement stems from research of the well
proven substance DMSO. It has been learned that MSM was an odorless and stable
metabolite of DMSO that possessed some similar properties. Actually MSM is
chemically DMSO2-that is DMSO with an additional oxygen, yet it is a natural
component of our cells.
MSM Plus Testimonial: Here is what a
few people had to say
"I'd never be caught
and MSM™," she says. "I often train during the summer at high attitudes when
the sun is intense. Proanthenols protect my skin. And I've had a lot of
strains and sports injuries like a broken back 2 years ago. If I don't take
Proanthenols, I start to feel discomfort and pain.
"MSM Plus™ along with
Cat's Claw Plus
shorten recovery time. MSM Plus might be my most important supplement." Lisa
feels so strongly about the benefits of MSM Plus and how quickly it helps
her recover after workouts that she often hesitates to talk about it with
competitors. "Imagine being able to train hard and recover well enough to be
totally fresh the next day. I have never found anything that has had such a
positive effect on my training as Life Plus' MSM Plus!"
