Science-Based Health Benefits of MSM

MSM, also known as methylsulfonylmethane and methyl sulfone, is a naturally occurring sulfur containing compound. Sulfur is an important component of enzymes, hormones, collagen, protein and more. 

MSM is included in Hair, Skin and Nails Support by Beyond Vita®.

1. Helps Joint Pain

Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that is caused when the cartilage between joints wears down.

In a 2011 randomized double-blind controlled trial involving 49 people with osteoarthritis of the knee, researchers concluded that those taking MSM experienced reduced pain and an improvement in physical function.1

Another study on joint degeneration in 2015 found that MSM was able to help improve joint function, relieve symptoms associated with join degeneration and improve quality of life.2

MSM may help reduce joint pain in those with joint degeneration.

2. Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Controlling inflammation by reducing oxidative stress is essential for health.

MSM has been shown to help increase levels of the key antioxidant glutathione which fights free radicals and reactive oxygen species that increase oxidative stress.3

In a 2016 study, MSM was shown to reduce the inflammatory reaction from the immune system after exercise.4

3. Skin Health

MSM may help improve skin by reducing the symptoms of a skin condition called rosacea that causes small red bumps on the face.5

In a 2015 study researchers claim that MSM helps to regulate the expression of key genes responsible for aging and skin health in a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial involving 20 women. They concluded that oral MSM supplementation can help benefit skin health by helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.6
