|MSM Powder, Tested to meet a minimum 99.7% purity level.|
MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) is a natural form of organic sulfur found in all
living organisms. This natural compound, researched since 1979, provides the chemical
links needed to form and maintain numerous different types of tissues found in
the human body, including connective tissue such as articular cartilage. While
MSM is a natural component of almost all fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and
meat, food-processing methods reduce sulfur levels, making supplementation more
important than ever.
What is Lignisul MSM?
Methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM) is a naturally occurring sulfur compound found in
our bodies as well as in many common beverages and foods, including milk, coffee,
tea and green vegetables. In its purified chemical form, it is an odorless, essentially
tasteless, white, water-soluble crystalline solid. It is one of the safest substances
in biology, similar in toxicity to water.
Lignisul MSM is the first brand of MSM specifically developed as an ultrapure
food grade for human consumption as a nutritional supplement.
Lignisul MSM is a non-animal-based nutritional supplement and is an all-natural
source of MSM. In addition, Lignisul has been certified Kosher-Parve by the
Kosher Overseers Associates of America.
Naturally-occurring sulfur, such as that found in Lignisul MSM, is not similar
to inorganic sulfides, sulfites and sulfates to which many people are allergic.
Where does NOW Foods Lignisul MSM powder come from?
The cycle of MSM begins in the ocean where microscopic plants called plankton
release sulfur compounds. These salts are transformed in the ocean water into
the very volatile compound dimethyl sulfide (DMS) which escapes from the ocean
as a gas. DMS rises into the upper atmosphere, and in the presence of ozone
and high-energy ultraviolet light, is converted into MSM. Lignisul MSM is derived
from an all-natural source of DMS that originates in pine trees. MSM is produced
by twice oxidizing DMS to form DMSO2 , otherwise known as MSM. Unlike the DMS,
MSM is very soluble in water, and returns to earth in the form of rain. On earth,
plants take MSM into their root systems and concentrate it. MSM and the sulfur
it contains is incorporated into the plants' structure. Through the plants'
metabolism, MSM, along with other sulfur compounds it has spawned, is ultimately
mineralized and transported back to the sea.
