    Default Msm

    Thinking about adding this to my list of supplements. I've read this can be good for pain/inflammation as well as joint health. I already take glucosamine/chondroitin.

    Curious if anyone takes this and if they've seen any benefit? Dosage i've read says 2grams/day--thoughts? Powder or tablet? I read taking it with vitamin C helps--was thinking of powder and putting it in my morning protein shake with some frozen fruit.

    thoughts/comments?

    thanks

    I took it for a while, as I did glucosamine/chondroitin, and never felt any benefit, so I no longer take any of them.

    Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Supplements
    Anti-inflammatory supplements that can have immediate use. Here are a few of David Wolfe's favorites:


    MSM (methylsulfonylmethane)
    – Its ability to neutralize inflammation is one of the greatest, and one of the most inexpensive, discoveries in this field.
    MSM has been shown to break down the calcification that is frequently associated with chronic inflammation. In your arteries, it's called plaque, which leads to heart disease. These plaques are the root cause of inflammation.
    "MSM helps dissolve these calcified deposits, turning it into calcium sulfate and making it soluble so your body can excrete it," David explains.
    "The dosage of MSM has to be, in the beginning, maybe 2,500 mg per day. But really, you need to get up to 5,000 mg or 7,500 mg, and allow it to work over a period of months.

    But don't ever want to start anything at a very high dosage. Move into it gently.

    I have a good friend of mine who is now taking 30,000 mg of MSM for his rheumatoid arthritis, and that is the dosage he needs in order to feel complete relief of his pain."

    Keep in mind that there may be side effects because MSM can detoxify you, and that may initially aggravate any condition you have. So increase dosage slowly to allow your body to adjust.
    Vitamin C -- A tremendous antioxidant, vitamin C is also anti-inflammatory, and is vital for rebuilding collagen and connective tissue. David recommends taking your MSM and vitamin C together if possible. Your best bet is to use a natural plant-based or botanical vitamin C supplement, such as acerola cherry, rosehip, or camu berry.

    Keep in mind that high doses of vitamin C can cause diarrhea, so again, you'll want to start slowly and work your way up to about 3,000 mg per day.
