MSM

Description

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), also known as dimethyl sulfone (DMSO2) and methyl sulfone, is an organic sulphur-containing compound that forms part of the mineral approach of SuperFeast's health philosophy.

Known as the ‘beauty mineral’, MSM is considered an essential building block for hair, skin, and nails. It is also well known for supporting joint health, liver detoxification, and reducing inflammation. We love it for helping support healing, and healthy collagen formation, and for its potent mineralisation powers. 

MSM is a safe detoxifier that can be used daily to support natural liver detox pathways and remove calcification in the tissues. Our body’s hormone function, antibodies, antioxidants, and enzymes all rely on having sufficient MSM present to function optimally, as well as the cell’s ability to stay permeable to nutrients and to release toxins.

MSM is also a great muscle relaxant and can assist those who have post-workout or chronic muscle tension or pain.

Ingredients

100% methyl-sulfonyl-methane (pure OptiMSM)

Sourcing

SuperFeast MSM is sourced from OptiMSM in the United States.

Contraindications

Well-documented and studied for safety and efficacy, OptiMSM is considered safe for humans and animals. There is no known evidence of interactions between OptiMSM and pharmaceuticals, herbs, vitamins, or minerals. That said, the dosage of OptiMSM should be increased slowly as it CAN cause detoxification symptoms (similar to a bad hangover or liver detox) if too much is consumed too quickly. We recommend consuming MSM with plenty of water.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take MSM whilst pregnant?

Tonic herbs are generally warming, building, and nourishing. In the context of health optimisation and the Taoist tradition, tonic herbs are not directly used to treat individual symptoms, but instead to create harmony and strength within the system as a whole.

In this regard, we generally only recommend our Reishi and Eucommia Bark during pregnancy as there is quite a lot of empirical use of these herbs in pregnancy in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Tonic Herbalism.

As pregnancy is a very individual journey, we recommend checking in with your healthcare provider when starting on any new herbs or supplements as they will have a more comprehensive scope of your medical history.

Can I take MSM while breastfeeding?

We do not recommend MSM at this time as this herb influences the body’s detox pathways, especially through the Liver. Mobilising toxicity while breastfeeding is not ideal. If intuitively you feel that MSM is relevant to use at this time, please do so in small quantities or under the guidance of your healthcare provider.
