MSM, a Superstar, Superfood Supplement


  • MSM is called a "superfood" because it can help with a variety of ailments, including allergies, joint pain, and headaches.
  • MSM is found in supplements or by eating raw fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • MSM is also found in some processed foods and drinks, like beer, coffee, and tea.

At last, natural ingredients are being recognized for superfood status. Even so, most fail to appreciate the broad spectrum, curative powers that exist in nature’s apothecary. Superfood status, once awarded only to  9 or 10 foods, has finally been increased to over 50! 

Today, we’re introducing you to MSM, (Methylsulfonylmethane) and why, though not technically a food, it deserves ‘superfood’ status.

What Classifies a Superfood as ‘Super’?

Excellent question. The food industry awards the ‘superfood’ moniker to nutrient-rich foods with a broad range of health benefits. While a growing number of foods can be described as super, there is no one food that guarantees good health or prevents disease. 

Eating a variety of fresh produce, nuts and seeds supply our bodies with the nutrients it needs for good health. The benefit of focusing on superfoods is that they supply the body with a plethora of ingredients for the body to use across the board.

The world is starting to understand how a single food, addresses, and assists in relieving multiple ailments.

What’s so Super About MSM?

MSM is technically a chemical, but in the language of your body, its a ‘food’! Lab-manufactured MSM has long been added to pain relief medicines. Natural, plant-based MSM is, however, way more sophisticated than its hopelessly inferior laboratory name’s sake. 

For starters, natural MSM supplies organic sulfur to the body from which other chemicals that your body needs at different times are manufactured. That should help you understand why it is considered effective in a multitude of ailments.  

The Broad-spectrum Healing Clout of Organic MSM

Be prepared to be amazed at MSM’s capabilities, after which you’ll no doubt understand why you and your loved ones could do with its support.

Herewith, in alphabetical order, are the ailments MSM is used for relief:

In addition to the chart above, those with autoimmune illnesses such as systemic lupus erythematosus, HIV/ AIDS, cancer (i.e. breast cancer and colon cancer) and anyone with radiation poisoning, will benefit from regular intake of MSM. 

Oral intake of MSM will counter parasitic infections of the intestinal and urogenital tracts including Trichomonas vaginalis and Giardia, and yeast infection (Candida). The same can be said for eye inflammation or mucous membrane inflammation.

MSM is known to assist with snoring problems, mood elevation, rapid wound healing and PMS (premenstrual tension).
