2, methyl sulfone, and dimethyl sulfone, methanesulfonylmethane, and sulfonylbismethane.
MSM is a normal oxidation product of Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO). Unlike DMSO, MSM is odor free and is a dietary factor. MSM has been referred to as "crystalline DMSO." MSM provides a dietary source of Sulfur for Methionine. MSM's medicinal properties are theorized to be similar to DMSO, without the odor and skin irritation complications.
MSM is an organosulfur compound with the formula (CH3)2SO2. MSM is a derivative of DMSO dimethyl sulfoxide and has many of the same therapeutic properties, especially in the healing of injuries. MSM and DMSO have different physical properties. MSM is a white crystalline solid at standard conditions for temperature and pressure whereas DMSO is a liquid under standard conditions. DMSO is a highly polar aprotic solvent (solvents that lack an acidic hydrogen and consequently are not hydrogen bond donors) and is miscible with water and an excellent ligand (an molecule that binds to a central metal atom to form a coordination complex). MSM is less reactive that DMSO because the S-atom of the sulfone is already at its highest oxidation state (VI). Oxidation of the sulfoxide produces the sulfone, both under laboratory conditions and metabolically.
MSM is found in green plants such as Equisetum arvense, certain algae, fruits, vegetables, and grains. In animals, it is found in the adrenal cortex of cattle, human and bovine milk, and urine. MSM is also found in human cerebral spinal fluid and plasma at 0 to 25 mcmol/L concentrations. MSM is naturally occurring in fresh foods; however, it is destroyed with even moderate food processing, such as heating or dehydration.
Methylsulfonylmethane contains sulfur, which is an essential mineral that helps the body heal itself. This colorless solid features the sulfonyl functional group and is considered relatively inert chemically. It occurs naturally in some primitive plants, is present in small amounts in many foods and beverages, and is marketed as a dietary supplement. It is also commonly found in the atmosphere above marine areas, where it is used as a carbon source by the airborne bacteria Afipia, and is found distinctively in human melanoma cells.
MSM is found naturally in foods such as fresh fish, plants, meat, fruit, and milk; however, it is often eliminated through processing. North Americans today eat large amount of processed foods, which means there is either very little MSM in the average daily diet, or none at all.
MSM USES, HEALTH BENEFITS, & SCIENTFIC EVIDENCE
MSM is commonly used for osteoarthritis, but may also benefit in alleviating GI upset, musculoskeletal pain, and allergies; boosting the immune system; and fighting antimicrobial infection. The sulfur content of MSM can be used by the body to maintain normal connective tissues. MSM has also exhibited possible anti-inflammatory, antiatherosclerotic, and chemopreventative activities along with free radical scavenging.
MSM STUDIES & RESEARCH
- MSM helps to significantly decrease arthritis-related pain, swelling and joint mobility in mild to moderate osteoarthritis.
- MSM detoxifies the body on a cellular level, and provides nourishment to the hair, skin, and nails. Some have reported that MSM has eliminated wrinkles, brown spots, skin tumors, and spider veins.
- MSM helps relieve musculoskeletal pain and inflammation.
- MSM has been reported to reduce and alleviate allergy problems.
- MSM promotes gastrointestinal health and helps to alleviate GI upset. In some cases has been benefical for heartburn.
- MSM boosts immune system function and in some cases, has been beneficial for lung problems, migraines.
- MSM possesses antimicrobial effects against organisms such as Giardia lamblia, Trichomonas vaginalis, and some fungi. The suggested mechanism is that MSM may bind to surface receptor sites, blocking the interaction of parasite and host.
Most research on MSM involves animal studies. MSM has been suggested for use as a food supplement and is available in the United States as a dietary supplement under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act.
Small-scale studies of possible treatments with MSM have been conducted on both animals and humans. These studies of MSM have suggested some benefits, particularly for treatment of oxidative stress and osteoarthritis, but evidence for other uses is lacking. Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database contains a continually updated list of health-related MSM studies.
A review of two small randomized controlled trials of methylsulfonylmethane in osteoarthritis knee pain relief "reported significant improvement in pain outcomes in the treatment group compared to comparator treatments; however, methodological issues and concerns over optimal dosage and treatment period were highlighted." The two trials included 168 people, of whom 52 received MSM, either 1.5 g/day or 6.0 g/day. The review authors stated: "No definitive conclusion can currently be drawn" and there is "no definitive evidence that MSM is superior to placebo in the treatment of mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee.
Subsequent to the review there have been two more clinical trials. One was a double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled trial with 49 participants taking 1.125 g of MSM or placebo three times daily for 12 weeks. The results showed a significant decrease in WOMAC physical function and total WOMAC scores, as well as improvement in VAS pain scores. The effect size of MSM supplementation was slightly lower than that of NSAID use as reported in other clinical trials. The authors wrote "longer-term trials may yield additional and greater improvements," and "the relative safety of MSM, especially when compared to serious risks associated with current OA drugs, makes it a compelling supplement for further research to determine long-term effects, safety, and dosage." The second used 6.0 g/day versus placebo for 26 weeks. Subjects were evaluated through the WOMAC questionnaire, SF-36 Quality of Life survey, and Global Assessments for OA symptoms from both patients and physicians. WOMAC results showed significant improvements in all areas for the MSM group. The MSM group also showed a strong trend towards changes in disease status. Careful lab monitoring of health indicators showed no side effects of MSM supplementation and no adverse events were reported.
A randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled study compared oral MSM with glucosamine and the combination of the 2 in 118 patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis for a minimum of 6 months. For 12 weeks, patients received either placebo (n = 28), MSM 500 mg 3 times daily (n = 30), glucosamine 500 mg 3 times daily (n = 30), or MSM and glucosamine both 500 mg 3 times daily (n = 30). The primary outcome was the reduction of pain intensity assessed by a visual analog scale (VAS). Pain, swelling, and joint mobility were also scored on a 0 to 3 scale, with 3 as the most severe. The primary outcome was not reported; however, all groups except for placebo experienced statistically significant improvements in pain and swelling. The combination of glucosamine and methylsulfonylmethane showed statistically significant decreases in pain and swelling compared with either single treatment alone.
A 12-week pilot, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted with 40 patients. Patients were diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis, classified by American College of Rheumatology criteria as functional class I, II, or III, for at least 3 months. Participants received 3 g of oral MSM micropill (OptiMSM) twice daily (increasing to this dose over 1 week) or placebo. The primary end points were the composite subscales in the Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index VAS on pain, stiffness, physical function, and aggregated total symptoms (0 = no pain, 100 = worst pain). After 12 weeks, there was a statistically significantly higher decrease in pain (-14.6 for MSM group and -7.3 for placebo group, P = 0.041) and for physical function impairment (-15.7 for MSM group and -8.8 for placebo group, P = 0.045).
A trial on the effects of the oral combination product AR7, which includes sternum collagen II, methylsulfonylmethane, cetyl myristoleate, lipase, vitamin C, and bromelain, was published. In 89 patients with osteoarthritis, a decrease in the percentage of patients reported to have pain, stiffness, and tenderness in the treatment group was found after 3 months.
OXIDATIVE STRESS & INFLAMMATION
Multiple human and animal trials indicate MSM may reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. In one small human trial, MSM has been shown to protect muscles from damage by reducing the amount of oxidative stress damage incurred through exercise. In a second small trial the total antioxidant capacity was significantly increased after taking MSM. Studies in animals indicate a hepatoprotective effect of MSM against several toxins including acetaminophen, paraquat, and carbon tetrachloride. Animal models of experimental colitis and pulmonary hypertension indicate a protective effect as well.
Tumor onset in colon cancer–induced rats was markedly delayed in animals receiving MSM supplementation versus controls, suggesting a chemopreventative effect. Four percent receiving MSM had a similar delaying effect on rat mammary breast cancer.
DIABETES PREVENTION STUDIES
MSM showed no effect in preventing diabetes when tested in spontaneously diabetic mice compared with DMSO or dimethylsulfide.
Topical MSM showed benefit in combination with silymarin to treat rosacea in 46 patients. A statistically significant decrease in erythema, papules, and itch intensity occurred. MSM was theorized to be beneficial in rosacea due to strong photoprotective action along with antioxidant effects and desensitization of the skin to potential allergens.
There is one case study of a patient with unrelieved ichthyosis treated unsuccessfully with a variety of topical agents. After treatment with an over-the counter skin care product olivamine, a product that combines amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, MSM, and water-resistant silicones with surfactant-free phospholipid cleansers, the patient was completely clear of thickened scales and itching after 4 weeks.
Barrager evaluated the efficacy of MSM for hay fever. Fifty-five subjects consumed 2.6 g of MSM per day for 30 days. This study was not blinded and did not include controls; while an improvement in symptoms was observed compared to initial baseline, no significant changes were observed in two indicators of inflammation (C-reactive protein and immunoglobulin E levels).
A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial of an MSM-containing throat spray to reduce snoring reported a severity decrease of 28-percent in the placebo group and 54-percent for the treated group. The difference was statistically significant.
A 10-day course of MSM also has been evaluated in 13 horses with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and no changes occurred in parameters, such as lung sounds, respiratory rate, heart rate, temperature, nasal discharge, or arterial blood gas. However, MSM exerted some protective effects on oxidative and inflammatory exercise-induced injury in 24 jumping horses when given daily for 6 weeks before and during competition.

MSM DOSAGE INFORMATION
MSM commonly is given as 2 to 6 grams per day in 2 to 3 divided doses for arthritis and other joint conditions.
Research studies show the body needs a constant supply of MSM for optimum health. The recommended daily dosage is 2000 mg (2 g) taken in divided doses with the morning and evening meals, but it is suggested that you begin with 1000 mg a day to avoid an overly rapid detoxification rate. Benefits of using MSM can be evident as early as 2 to 21 days, and is enhanced by Vitamin C supplementation. MSM comes in lotion form for topical use as well.
SULFUR DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
There is no Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) or Daily Value established for Sulfur and sufficient dietary sources are readily available in onions, garlic and cruciferous vegetables and in protein-containing foods, including nuts, seeds, milk and eggs (whites and yolks).
MSM SAFETY, CAUTIONS, & INTERACTIONS
When taken in the recommended doses MSM is generally regarded as safe. Contraindications have not been identified. Information regarding safety and efficacy in pregnancy and lactation in humans is lacking. No interactions are well documented. No conclusive data on adverse reactions with MSM have been reported. No toxicity was noted in animal studies.
Extensive research in animal models indicates MSM has a very low toxicity when administered both orally and topically. In clinical trials, several studies reported minimal or absence of side effects after 12 weeks of dosing. Reported side effects from these studies included mild gastrointestinal issues, fatigue, and headache, although they did not appear to differ from placebo. A more recent 26 week study on large joint osteoarthritis observed no adverse events or abnormal changes in lab monitoring when taking 6 grams MSM per day. MSM is considered 'Possibly Safe' at therapeutic doses, although further research is still needed to assess its safety for long-term use.
When orally administered MSM was given to rats at 5 to 7 times the maximum recommended dose in humans, no adverse events or mortality were observed after 90 days. In one study, similar rates of adverse effects were seen in the MSM and placebo group. Possible adverse events included bloating, constipation, decline in concentration, fatigue, headache, indigestion, and insomnia.

MSM / METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS
Sulfur/MSM is essential for healthy joints, smooth skin, glossy hair, hard nails and collagen synthesis. It is critical to protein metabolism. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), a metabolite of DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide), is a naturally occurring component of every living cell. MSM is a bioavailable form of sulfur, which is necessary for the proper function of the body's skin, hair, nails, connective tissue, amino acid production, immune system, and healthy joints. Sulfur is considered a macronutrient and must be consumed each day for healthy function and growth of the body. Sulfur is found in every cell of the human body. Sulfur is a crucial component of our tissues, hormones, vitamins, enzymes, antibodies and antioxidants. We simply cannot maintain good health without it. Large amounts of sulfur are found in joints, skin, hair, and nails. There is a minimum concentration of sulfur that must be maintained for healthy bodily function and structure. The body uses sulfur to continually create healthy new cells to replace old ones. Sulfur makes cells permeable, ensuring that nutrients are delivered into the cell and that toxins and waste products are removed. Sulfur is a natural detoxifier for lead. By allowing fluids and nutrients to flow freely through the cell wall, sulfur reduces pain and inflammation and promotes healing. Every time the body removes invading toxins from the cell, it also removes the sulfur compound that neutralizes the toxins. This is why sulfur supplementation is so vital to daily nutrition. Sulfur' anti-inflammatory properties and ability to repair scar tissue around damaged areas explains its power to alleviate rheumatoid arthritis. Persons afflicted with osteoarthritis, which involves the deterioration of the cartilage at the ends of the bones, are often found to be deficient in sulfur. Sulfur alleviates the pain associated with osteoarthritis by acting as an anti-inflammatory. Sulfur is also known for its ability to help with digestive disorders, such as heartburn, indigestion, and gastritis. Sulfur is also important for proper metabolism of carbohydrates and adequate uptake of sugar molecules necessary for energy. Sulfur can restore normal blood sugar levels as cells become permeable and helps restore pancreas functions to normal as the cells absorb blood sugar. The body is in a constant state of repair so if we don't get enough of the required nutrients the end product is going to be less than perfect. This is reflected in the aging process. Sulfur functions to inhibit this aging process within cells. OptiMSM trademark is owned by Cardinal Nutrition for its patented MSM.
