Studies have shown MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) provides anti-inflammatory relief for people who have skin problems. Elixir Shea Butter moisturiser and Muscle Cream Rub contain pure organic MSM. We have found from experience that MSM has a softening and deeply penetrating effect on the skin. MSM is able to penetrate several skin layers providing a better, more deeply hydrating and smoothing effect for longer periods of time. Totally awesome for chronically dry or mature skin.
MSM is found naturally in fresh fruits and vegetables. It is also found in the cells of your body, in nerve tissue, skin, hair and joints. MSM is derived from Dimethyl sulfoxide or better known as DMSO which is a sulfur-containing organic compound. DMSO occurs naturally in vegetables, fruits, grains, and animal products. MSM is the by product of DMSO when it becomes is oxidized.
As Sulfur is stored in the cells of the body being in a state of deficiency means that your body is unable to repair or replace damaged tissue fast enough. What happens then is your The body will then compensate by producing abnormal cells that can well lead to illness and disease. One of the many symptoms of sulfur deficiency is enhanced sensitivity to pain. Research has found that a sulfur deficiency is associated with the following symptoms and MSM can really help:
MSM helps slow wound healing, MSM helps Scar tissue, MSM helps Brittle nails and problem hair, MSM - helps Gastrointestinal problems, MSM helps Lung dysfunction, MSM helps Immune dysfunction, MSM really helps - Arthritis, MSM really helps the pain of Osteoarthritis, MSM really helps Acne, MSM really helps - Dry skin complaints, MSM helps Depression, MSM helps Constipation.
From personal experiences we can state with complete confidence from our own use and the positive feedback we get that MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties. This is because MSM blocks pain response in certain nerve fibers. It reduces scar tissue allowing tissue repair and healing to take place. MSM is a life enhancing anti-inflammatory agent for individuals with degenerative diseases such as, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, disc problems in the back, acute injuries, tendonitis, bursitis and other similar health problems.
In 1964 Stanley W. Jacob, MD discovered the therapeutic qualities of DMSO and MSM and his claims about MSM and its long lasting relief continue to be true when used on a continual basis. There is no point trying it once or twice.

Did you know that Sulfur helps your body to form keratin which is the the protein that makes up the main part of the outermost layers of your hair and nails. This protein is strong and fibrous protein protects your hair and nails from the effects of damaging chemicals. Each strand of hair has its own keratin supply, which is stored in the root.
Sulfur is also contained in biotin, a B vitamin that is essential for shiny hair. Did you know that the natural inclination of hair to be straight or curly is due to the sulfur amino acids. MSM really is a wonderful mineral that benefits dry scalp and hair, improves nail growth and benefits your cuticles.
Allergies occur when the immune system breaks down and a variety of different symptoms can manifest. Symptoms of an allergy can include sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, headaches, and sleepiness, other reactions can be hives, stomach-ache, and sore throat.
The good thing about MSM is it heads straight to the cause of allergic reactions, softening the walls of the cells flushing out unwanted substances and toxins. MSM helps get rid of allergens from the body which eliminates the need for the body to react allergically. MSM soften the walls of cells which are hard and impenetrable allowing this process to happen. MSM prevents these reactions by coating the gastrointestinal tract in a way that makes allergen bonding impossible. Research has also shown daily doses of MSM substantially increase resistance to environmental, food or drug allergens.
Our stomach lining releases a form of acid known as hydrochloric acid, which we need to for the digestion of proteins. Standard medical treatment for heartburn and acid reflux involves the use of antacids and other products/medications that neutralize hydrochloric acid.
These band aid solutions are only provide temporary relief and work by counteracting the effects of hydrochloric acid. When hydrochloric acid is reduced by continued use of anti acids it can result in further indigestion and poor absorption of nutrients as they destroy the body's natural acid/alkaline balance. Studies have found that MSM will allow patients with peptic ulcers and chronic heartburn to experience fewer symptoms.
