What Is MSM?
MSM, or Methylsulfonylmethane, is a naturally occurring compound found in some primitive plants. It's an organosulfur compound that is noted for a number of benefits. MSM provides many benefits for the hair and skin due to its collagen and keratin boosting properties. Collagen and keratin are two structural proteins that are vital for maintaining the health, vitality, and appearance of skin and hair.
Improves Skin Health and Complexion
MSM is necessary for collagen production, and collagen is what helps keep skin from becoming saggy, wrinkled, cracked and dry. By boosting collagen production, MSM can help improve the plumpness of skin, smoothness, and even strengthen the hair and nails.
Promotes Hair Growth
MSM has been found to be beneficial for hair growth as it provides sulfur to the body which is a key component of hair. Sulfur from MSM can be incorporated into the bonds of hair proteins, which can help to reinforce the hair and promote its healthy growth.
MSM has anti-inflammatory properties, which helps calm skin conditions like eczema, acne and psoriasis, as well as improving sensitive skin and reducing allergies.
MSM can help the body's cells become more permeable, releasing certain built-up minerals that can cause problems (like calcium, for example), heavy metals, waste and toxins, while also helping to usher nutrients and water into the cells for better hydration, reduced inflammation and improved skin repair and regeneration.
