MSM is an organic source of sulfur — an element that is an active component of free radical scavengers (such as glutathione
and ‘thiols’), enzymes, antibodies, hormones, and connective tissue.
The conditions for which MSM has been proposed as a treatment are numerous. Many of these proposed applications are unsupported
by solid evidence, since MSM has received little attention from medical researchers. Nevertheless, studies in rodents and
humans have scientifically established the following:
- MSM has low but significant oral bioavailability
- is rapidly absorbed and incorporated into serum proteins as the amino acids methionine and cysteine
- crosses the blood-brain barrier
- slows progression of arthritis
- reduces symptoms of seasonal (e.g., pollen) allergies
- delays the onset of colon and breast cancer tumors
- in high doses protects against autoimmune lymphoproliferative disease
- holds promise for interstitial cystitis patients, and those suffering from painful bladder (urethral) syndrome
