Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a chemical found in green plants, animals, and humans. People take MSM supplements by mouth and apply it to the skin for chronic pain, osteoarthritis, joint inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, inflammation around the joints (bursitis), tendinitis, swelling around the tendons (tenosynovitis), musculoskeletal pain, muscle cramps, hardened skin condition called scleroderma, scar tissue, stretch marks, hair loss, wrinkles, protection against sun/wind burn, eye inflammation, oral hygiene, gum disease, wounds, cuts, and abrasions/accelerated wound healing.
Sulphur is a mineral found in rather high concentrations in our body tissues. About half of the body’s total sulfur is concentrated in the muscles, while the other half is found in the brain, hair, skin, and bones. Sulphur comprises 0.25 percent of our body weight.
Sulphur has a vital relationship with protein, since sulphur is found in the amino acids methionine, cystine, and cysteine. Thus, these amino acids are known as the sulphur-bearing amino acids, which are considered the building blocks of protein.
The sulphur-bearing amino acid methionine is absolutely essential to health! This means it must be supplied by live food, or the food supplement NuValenz MSM. A lack of proper protein in our diet means a lack of the vital organic sulphur necessary to good health. Proteins contain sulphur, while carbohydrates and fats do not.
Sulphur is necessary for collagen synthesis. Collagen is an insoluble fibrous protein found in vertebrates (having a backbone, or spinal column) as the dominant component of connective tissue fibrils and bones. Sulphur operates as synthesizer and activator with the B vitamins thiamine, vitamin C, biotin, and pantothenic acid, which are needed for metabolism and healthy nerves.
Sulphur plays an important part in tissue breathing, the process whereby oxygen and other substances are used to build cells and release energy. Sulphur also helps to maintain overall body balance between acidity and alkalinity and works importantly with the liver to secrete bile.
NuValenz MSM Supplement is the flexible bond between proteins. When a cell dies, a new cell takes its place. But, without the needed amount of MSM, it attaches but becomes rigid. When tissues lose their flexibility, problems develop with the lungs and other parts of the body.
When we process our foods with heat or drying, we lose most of the MSM that is vital to our well-being. NuValenz MSM helps our bodies utilize the supplements that we take thereby providing the means for us to derive the maximum benefit from them.
