What if I told you there was a nutrient that could cure your allergies, eliminate your symptoms immediately and start to heal your body for optimal well-being? This supplement needs more attention in the media and medical industry because it worked so well for my allergies, food and seasonal. MSM will relieve inflammation and joint pain, restore your gut, boost your immunity and increase energy. You might be wondering “ what is MSM for and why does it sound like a factory product? ” But this natural supplement can treat and heal many conditions and you need to know about it.
What is MSM Powder?
This supplement is organic sulfur, also known as MethylSulfonylMethane. It is a very bioavailable form of sulfur that the body can readily absorb and use in its cells.
Sulfur has been proven to be able to improve the immune system and fight inflammation, which is the root cause of many health problems. This is the most abundant mineral in the human body and many of us are deficient in it. This is scary because so many crucial functions of the body rely on sulfur. (1)
MSM comes in three forms: capsules, powder and crystals. Many natural health professionals argue that the pill form is not available to the body due to the processing it goes through and I agree on this because I feel like the pills do nothing even at high doses.
Which form of MSM Powder is the best?
I don’t recommend the pills that you swallow with water because they never worked for me and so many others have said the same. The powder form is effective as well, but the crystallized form of MSM is the most bioavailable for our bodies.
I recommend taking MSM crystals because I can notice a huge difference in my health almost immediately after I take a dose. The crystals are also easily dissolved in water and have no taste. I like to simply mix the crystals in with water, a smoothie, or sprinkle it on food.
Health Benefits of MSM Crystals
Sulfur is important for your body’s production of glutathione: probably the most important antioxidants in your body. It works by getting rid of waste products in your tissues and detoxes heavy metals.
Therefore, MSM works by providing the body with what it needs to create its own antioxidants.
Glutathione has two states: reduced and oxidized. When the antioxidant captures a stressor in your blood, an oxidant, glutathione captures it and proceeds to exit the body through urine. Sometimes, oxidative stress is too high in the body and it cannot properly get rid of the oxidants in your blood. MSM works to relieve oxidative stress and prevent oxidative damage. (2)
Here are some benefits that your body will experience due to this process:
- Healthier bones and joints. MSM helps to break up calcium deposits in the body that cause joint degeneration. It will help improve joint flexibility and reduce pain and swelling while increasing circulation around the joints.
- Greatly assists in the detoxification process. MSM will significantly increase the permeability of your cell membranes. This means that your cells will better be able to flush out excess fluid and toxins that are disrupting normal cellular functions. This is extremely important for detoxification because essential nutrients will now be able to be absorbed in place of the toxins.
- Increase energy levels. Since your cells are getting rid of excess fluid and toxins, they need much less energy to function properly. The leftover energy can be focused on your immune system, your muscles and the alertness of your brain. There are many benefits of having improved nutrition of your cells that you can physically feel.
- Improved skin and hair quality. Sulfur is a primary component of collagen and keratin, which are necessary for healthy hair, skin and nails. Within a few days of taking MSM, you will notice that your nails and hair will become thicker and shinier. If you suffer from skin conditions like acne, eczema, dandruff, or rosacea, you will greatly benefit from taking MSM daily.
Intestinal Healing Benefits
- Heals the intestinal wall for a healthier digestive system. Everybody has varying severities of the condition called “leaky gut syndrome” in which the intestinal wall has physical holes in it that has been caused by an unhealthy diet and allergies. Organic sulfur will rapidly heal these holes that are allowing undigested material and pathogens leak into your bloodstream. Optimal digestion can be felt in many positive ways and it will be great for your well-being.
- Treats the root causes of food allergies. Since food allergies and intolerances are exacerbated by leaky gut syndrome, the healing of your gut lining will allow your body to deal with food naturally again. You will begin to see that your food sensitivities will disappear after taking MSM and your allergic reactions to food will be much less severe.
- Treats the root causes of seasonal allergies. Since MSM allows for cell permeability and detoxification, this is exactly what your body needs to be able to deal with allergens again. With all the abundant energy that is now present in your body, your immune system and digestion can focus on healing overreactions to pollen and other allergens. I’ve found that after taking MSM for one day, my seasonal allergy symptoms have diminished to about a sneeze or two a day. Perhaps there is another reason for this that we are not yet sure about.
- Kills parasites. MSM crystals will displace parasites and create an unhealthy environment for infections. Sulfur acts as a natural anti-parasite and anti-bacterial that will kill anything invading your body while supporting the growth of healthy probiotic bacteria. Parasitic infection is a common problem in the first world and is a cause for allergies.
Detoxification Benefits – Possible Psychic Powers With the Pineal Gland??
MSM is very useful in detoxifying the glands of the body. It is beneficial for your adrenal glands, but is most notable for its ability to decalcify the glands in the brain. Some deep thinkers believe that our lifestyle, fluoride in our water, and halides found in baking products have caused calcium buildup in our “third eye center.” (3)
They believe that MSM has the ability to remove calcium buildup that crystallizes the pineal gland and ceases its function. Its sensitivity is valued in nature and some believe that a sort of sixth sense can be attained by following a strict lifestyle to keep their pineal gland healthy.
Apparently, the things that calcify the pineal gland are:
- Fluoride added to water
- Calcium supplements or antacids
- Mercury found in fillings and seafood
- Pesticides from fruit and vegetables
- Processed food and sodium “junk foods”
- Conventional cosmetics, lotions, soaps, deodorants
- Artificial sweeteners, notably aspartame
- Prescription and OTC drugs with fluoride as a filler
- Chicken fingers and chicken nuggets deboned
- Tea that is not organic
Other things that can help heal your pineal gland include:
- Raw Cacao
- Raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar
- Lemon juice
- Oil of oregano
- Neem extract
- Drinking only purified water with no fluoride added
- Meditation and yoga
MSM is great for detoxification, so if your body is experiencing a toxic overload in its cells, then you may have to suffer through some “detox symptoms” as the waste products are moving out of your body. Some people experience symptoms of a headache, bloating, upset digestion, insomnia and basically any other symptom while they begin to take MSM. (4)
In my opinion, it will usually magnify the symptoms you usually suffer from for a short while. This is because whatever was causing those symptoms is being cleared out of your body at a rapid rate and your bloodstream is full of it at that point.
So if you begin to take MSM and start feeling different or sick, this is likely a good thing because your body is trying to detox and become more healthy.
Although it is also possible that you react to sulfa products allergically. In that case, you will probably have a severe reaction like hives and anaphylactic shock. If that’s you, definitely don’t take MSM any more. (5)
There is a lot of conflict surrounding the necessity and right of the government adding fluoride to our water supplies. The first intentional addition of fluoride into drinking water occurred in the 1930’s in Nazi Germany for the purpose of making the population more docile and submissive. This is what they thought it would do and why they did it. (6)
Some science indicates that fluoride is a toxic, nonessential halogen that accumulates in your tissues, damages your pancreas, disrupts neurological and endocrine function, and creates many other adverse health problems. This may be especially true for children.
Regarding the chemistry of fluoride, a nonessential halogen, versus iodine, an essential halogen, these elements are in competition with one another for chemical binding in our body’s glands. The thyroid and pineal gland rely on iodine to function.
Fluoride is in the same group of elements as iodine and is much smaller and more reactive than it. Fluoride knocks out iodine atoms in these glands and fits itself in that spot while attracting calcium as well. This is how your glands may start to crystallize partially and lose function. (7)
My Experience With MSM
I have been trying to incorporate MSM into my lifestyle for about 2 years now after getting MRM MSM Crystals. I have the same tub that will likely last me another 2 years because it is so large.
At first, my body experienced some uncomfortable symptoms that made me feel as if I were sick. I had flu-like symptoms, my muscles ached, and I felt very bloated and dull for a little while.
However, at the same time, my allergies had disappeared and my skin and hair were becoming a wonderful texture. I knew that something was going well so I tried to raise the recommended dose as suggested by some natural health blogs. This was a bad idea because my “detox symptoms” magnified and I felt very uncomfortable for a day.
I guess that was all the waste coming out of my cells and my liver struggling to keep up with the load. I take a small dose of MSM crystals every day and it is so easy and tasteless when drunk.
This is the only product that I can directly link to a serious reduction in my allergy symptoms almost immediately after taking it. These crystals can easily replace an antihistamine drug.
I highly recommend that everyone try this product to see what it does for you because so many regard it as a miracle supplement, as do I.
I am always here for you, so if you have a question or something to add about what MSM powder is about, please leave me a comment!
