MSM is important for the creation of collagen and proper formation of cartilage, thereby helping maintain healthy, flexible joints. It is also important for the normal formation of bone and other connective tissues, such as ligaments, tendons and skin. MSM has a positive effect on teeth, nails and hair. Customers who have taken MSM report thick, shiny, healthy-looking hair and strong, flexible nails.
MSM helps to build important amino acids, such as methionine and cysteine, which are needed for nearly all body functions. It supports the production of Vitamins B5, C and Biotin and helps support healthy pH balance and digestive function. MSM is also important for the immune system.
MSM is one of the least toxic substances in nature.
A daily multivitamin and vitamin C are also recommended.
Also available as powder (easily dissolved in water or juice).
1000mg MSM (methyl sulphonyl methane).
Methyl sulphonyl methane, natural

In some cases MSM may have an initial laxative effect. This is normal and should stop within a few days. Drink plenty of water. Reduce intake if symptoms are uncomfortable.

I inherited this condition via family genes and once I realized I had it, straight away started taking high doses of MSM. Higher Nature suggests up to 6 tablets a day, however there are independent studies by medical experts which show that people with arthritic conditions can take much more than 6g a day with no side-effects and plenty of benefits. I take 9g a day and as a result I have no joint pain. I use Higher Nature MSM cream for the psoriasis which also works really well. Without the MSM my life would not be worth living! And it's far better than being on steroids. Higher Nature MSM is one of the purest - other firms' products don't have the same effect, I really recommend it. (Tip - if you're an arthritis sufferer like me, try gradually working up to higher doses until your symptoms are alleviated. If you don't notice a change, you're probably not taking enough.)
*Please always follow the recommended dose as directed on the pot or as your health professional advises.*

I have wear and tear in my knee, which causes me pain and stiffness. Since taking MSM the difference is amazing. I have stopped a couple of times and each time I realise how bad my knee is without them. What a fantastic product. I take them 2 or 3 times a day.

My husband hurt his knee following a fall in the snow. He takes 2 tablets a day and notices a positive improvement in the flexibility of the joint.
