Indigo Herbs is happy to bring you this very sought after and precious compound that originates from sulphur. Our Indigo Herbs MSM Crystal Powder comes from one of the leading producers in China and is some of the purest MSM crystals that can be found on the market.
In nature, MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is produced by the evaporation of a precursor compound from the ocean into the upper atmosphere. In the upper atmosphere the crystals of MSM are formed which then dissolve and fall within rain. Tiny amounts of MSM are then synthesised by plants through the rain water which makes it readily available throughout the food chain. It is important to note that MSM derived from natural sources, most notably pine trees, is almost impossible to extract since it occurs in such minor quantities. The only way to create a pure and concentrated form of MSM is through synthetic synthesis of the naturally occurring process. The body can then benefit from this higher concentration when it is consumed.
MSM is a naturally occurring substance in food; it is found in raw fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds. MSM contains sulphur, known to be one of the basic elements of life and the 4th most abundant mineral in the body. Sulphur is active in maintaining the correct balance of acid / alkaline in the body. It is vital to the creation and regeneration of the body’s tissue and is found in every cell. One of the essential components in all life forms, sulphur is involved in amino acid production, connective tissue, skin, bones, hair, nails, enzymes, hormones, and immunoglobulins. Dr. Stanley Jacobs, M.D. Director of the DMSO Clinic and Professor of Surgery at Oregon Health Sciences University, has conducted clinical studies on MSM dietary supplements and used it with his patients for over 20 years and has documented his findings in the book entitled "The Miracle of MSM". In the book Dr. Stanley Jacobs lists MSM's most significant actions.
