Health Benefits Of MSM Powder



The taste is not nice, but I've been adding to a glass of water some MSM powder for a week now. 

Are you familiar with MSM powder?

MSM is a shortening of Methylsulfonylmethane, an organic form of sulfur, which is the third most abundant mineral in the human body. Sulfur is contained in muscular tissue, skin and bones. Nails and hair primary consist of a tough protein with a high sulfur content, known as keratin. It also contains collagen which keeps the skin elastic.

Health benefits of MSM

Improves skin health & complexion
Improves flexibility
Detoxifies the body
Strenghtens nails and hair
Accelerates healing
Naturally increases energy
Anti-inflammatory

It's recommended to start with a 1/2 tsp of MSM taken along with water. Gradually you can increase your intake up to 2 tsp. The white powder is odourless but the taste is very bitter, so it's good to drink a lot of water with it.

Yet I haven't noticed any difference in my energy levels nor in the condition of my nails, hair & skin nor in my flexibility, but as I mentioned I've only taken MSM for one week now, so let's see what is the situation after a month or two.









(FI) Ei todellakaan mitään hyvänmakuista, mutta olen silti lisännyt lasilliseen vettä MSM-jauhetta nyt viikon ajan.

Onko MSM-jauhe sinulle tuttu?

MSM on lyhenne metyylisulfonyylimetaanista, joka on orgaanista rikkiä, jota puolestaan on kolmanneksi eniten ihmisen kropassa. Rikkiä on lihaskudoksissa, ihossa ja luustossa. Kynnet ja hiukset koostuvat pääosin suuria määriä rikkiä sisältävästä proteiinista, joka tunnetaan keratiinina. Rikissä on myös kollageenia, joka puolestaan ylläpitää ihin elastiinisuutta. 

MSM:n terveysvaikutukset

Edistää ihon terveyttä ja sävyä
Edistää kehonnotkeutta
Puhdistaa kehoa
Vahvistaa kynsiä ja hiuksia
Nopeuttaa paranemisprosessia
Lisää luonnollisella tavalla energiatasoa
Anti-inflammatorinen (tulehduksia vastaan)

Suositusten mukaan kannattaa aloittaa sekoittamalla 1/2 tl MSM-jauhetta veteen. Vähitellen annostusta voi nostaa jopa 2 teelusikalliseen. Valkoinen jauhe on hajutontan, mutta maistuu kitkerältä, joten sen kanssa kannattaa juoda vettä oikein kunnolla.

En ole vielä huomannut mitään eroa kynsien ja hiusten kunnossa enkä kropan liikkuvuudessa enkä myöskään energiatasossa. Mutta kuten jo mainitsin olen käyttänyt MSM:ää vasta viikon ajan, joten eiköhän tilanne toivon mukaan muutu kuukauden tai parin päästä.

  2. This is one of the many things I plan on starting! I just started Magnesium last night. I am introducing one Vitamin/Mineral I am lacking and needing every couple of weeks (or month) that way my body gets used to it first.

    1. It is funny how easy it is to forget to take a couple of pills daily. i have every week days that I have skipped my dose of vitamins etc - shouldn't be that hard :)

  5. Haven't heard of MSM until now. I was surprised to read about the benefits you can get by having half a teaspoon of it daily. I guess you have to wait though to reap the effects. Please keep us posted about how MSM worked for you.

  6. never heard of this before, wonder why? Sounds pretty interesting, and well - I agree with other commenters, the health benefits outweigh taste issues. Taking pills when you are sick is no fun either, so I'd rather take something that taste funny but keeps me healthy - blessings!
