Default Anyone have Experience with MSM

Methylsulfonyl-methane


Ive read that is good for joints, ligaments and tendons. I've read its about as harmful as water is.

Is it a good thing to take for preventative maint. My was wife was told about this for her treatment of Lupus. Could it help prevent injury for me?

I think it is good stuff. I take it in the Emergen-C version, only 1g/day.

I like glucosamine better. MSM is really cheap tho!

MSM can cause gas (in larger doses) so beware! (It's a sulfur + methyl (methane) compound)

Have had great experience with it. Is good used for maintenance. Also, if you tweak a joint, take double dose for a couple of days and it works wonders

I would recommend a high dose vitamin d3 (>5000 IU)
