MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur compound and dietary derivative of DMSO, which the body needs to enhance cell restoration.
DMSO is an old fashioned “folk remedy” which has been around for over 35 years, and has been widely used as an effective treatment for reduction of arthritis pain and improved skin softness. MSM, extracted from DMSO, has been extensively tested on both animals and humans (even my wife thinks I’m an animal), and has been awarded 16 different patents. At one time, Kettle Moraine, Ltd. was proud to have made this truly astounding product available to our listeners, but as the world caught on to the overall health benefits of MSM – it became no longer possible to make the product available to our customers at a competitive cost. Because of the fact that MSM has absolutely no harmful side effects and is as totally safe to use as water, MSM can be safely given to young children, teenagers, adults and senior citizens. But there is a lot more to the MSM story – including my personal story…
MSM is a natural form of organic sulfur found in the fluid tissues of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods, including most fresh raw fruit and vegetables, milk, meat, seafood and some grains, however, MSM is easily destroyed during just moderate food processing. Cooking, drying, smoking, pickling, and long-term storage can deplete the MSM content of all foods. It is highly unlikely that sufficient MSM is ingested into our system to contribute to the body’s nutritional sulfur requirements. If freshly picked, naturally ripened food – high in MSM content – were eaten immediately without cooking or processing, our body would get the MSM it needed each day, but since MSM is not stored or produced in the body, it needs to be replenished each and every day. NOTE: It is impossible to “overdose” with MSM, since what is not needed by the body is secreted through the skin in an odorless form.
How Does it Work?
MSM is an important binder of soft tissues in the body – the thread, which gives strength and texture to the fabric. According to the US Patent, too low a concentration of MSM in the body results in adverse physical and physiological stress, tissue and organ malfunction, fatigue and increased susceptibility to diseases. MSM has been proven to work better in conjunction with Vitamin C.
Research has proven that when available in sufficient levels, MSM appears to coat all the mucus membranes of the body, creating a shield through which:
• Airborne allergy-causing contaminants such as household dust (mites), pollens, etc., are prevented from entering the tissue of the lungs and nasal passages, thereby reducing the effects of hay-fever and asthma.
• Industrial contaminants such as exhaust gasses, solvents, etc., are also hindered.
• Parasites, such as Cryptosporidium, giardia, salmonella and even hookworms are snagged before entering the stomach and intestines, thus rendering them harmless. This coating also provides a hostile living environment for those unwanted pests.
Who Will Benefit from MSM
All will benefit from the use of this product! It is estimated that 80% of the American population unknowingly hosts parasites. Yes! It is no longer just a Third World problem! Outbreaks of salmonella and water borne parasite infestations are commonplace in cities big and small!
Allergies and asthma effect a huge and growing proportion of our population – notwithstanding the “improvement” of our air quality. Go see for yourself – Drug stores are lined with magic allergy “cures” which can do more than alleviate the systems – albeit temporarily – and often provide side-effects as bad as the allergy itself. But MSM attacks the cause of the problem – not at the symptom. To put it in Biblical terms – MSM attacks the root of the problem – not the fruit.
Because of the tissue binding properties of MSM, skin is rendered softer, collagen increases (no promises on the lips ladies), injuries heal more quickly, and the mucus membranes are allowed to strengthen, as their bombardment by irritants is reduced.
What Else Will It Do?
In addition to many things previously mentioned, the patent for MSM claims over 80 different conditions and diseases for which the supplement can be used. To name just a few:
• Balanced bowel function
• Reduced allergy problems
• Improved lung function
• Fights chronic fatigue syndrome
• Relief from arthritic distress
• Alleviates upset stomach
• Combats parasitic infestation
• Relieves hyper-acidity
• Reduces effects of stress
• Eases swelling and stiffness
• Promotes healing
• Reduces hypertension
• Eliminates migraine headaches
• Helps relieve depression
• Promotes oral hygiene
• Combats yeast (Candide) infections
My Personal Story!
During a Cub Scout leader training session, which I was participating in during 1992, my legs went out from under me and I was on the floor. Not realizing what had happened to me, I got up off the floor and got right back into the game – never realizing that I had blown my knee out of the socket. When I got up, I popped it right back in – probably causing a hairline fracture of the bone. By the next day my knee had blown up to three times its normal size – but with the aid of ice packs and careful nurturing – the problem seemed to subside in a matter of days. Little did I realize that the problems were just beginning. For nearly four years afterwards, I awoke each morning to throbbing pain and a knee “out of joint”. Each day I would stand in the shower and be forced to snap my knee into place – kind of like “cracking” your knuckles”
In June of 1996, a sponsor for a radio program, which I was producing, introduced me to his product. The sponsor suggested that I try the MSM experience for myself. “Sure, why not?” I said, not believing all the hype that was being thrown my way. I mean, everybody who comes along with a “miracle” product must be a “quack” – right? In a few days, I received my first shipment of MSM and dutifully began to take it. Needless to say, I experienced no overnight miracle cure!
Several weeks later, I chose to go to one of my favorite franchise restaurants for an all you care to eat breakfast – you know the place – $3.99 plus a buck and a half for a cup of Joe! Now folks, all my life, breakfast has been my favorite meal – any time of the day or night – and I can load up with the best of them – three plates full was my usual in those days. Not on this day! Part way through my second plate – I found that I was “stuffed”! “No problem – I guess that wasn’t as hungry this morning as I thought”. I paid the check and boogied down the road to my studio – never giving it another thought. Another week goes by and BAM! – same story – only worse – I barely made it through the first plate! And then it all hit me at once – it’s the MSM! But now the story gets stranger. I live in Arizona – it’s hot – 115 degrees outside. I swim – I work in the yard – I’m 48 years old and I’ve never tanned in my life – fair-haired I am – I burn! Not now – two weeks with my MSM and I am tanning – I mean with real lines above and below where the suit is. But the story still ain’t over – no more morning “knee jerk” reactions – no more pain at night – hot dog – I’m sleeping like a baby! But wait a minute – I’m staying up ‘til three – four – five o’clock in the a.m. – and I’m back up by 7:30 or eight a.m.. Once again – it’s the MSM! Like the old Monkees song – I’m a believer . . . and over two decades later – I still am.
In our next installment we’ll be updating this story with additional information about the amazing properties and results that many have experienced with MSM! Join us won’t you – after all – it is your health!
With glass lifted on high I say, “To Health With You!”
