View Full Version : MSM info wanted
08-10-2008, 12:04 PM
Could someone please share info about MSM? Where is it from? What are its benefits? Is it safe? How much to take? How frequently? How long to take it? Any warnings? Take it with/without food? In what form does it come--capsule, tablet, cream? Is it a hormone?
I know I sound very ignorant, but I do want to learn. Thanks!

Here is a page all about msm and its purported benefits.
I'm taking it to try to heal a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder.
I can't say if it's helping yet. It still hurts a great deal!
I take it either in water or a smoothie. I add some food based vitamin c powder. :)

Google has TOO much info for me to sort through. And besides, I don't know enough to determine which is sales pitch and which is hype and which is misleading and which is..... too many whiches!

Didn't I read on this forum somewhere that people use MSM for weight loss? But I don't find mention of that on the websites.
And what of MSM do you take?

half a teaspoon per day is what my jar says and not to exceed.
I just add about an eight of a teaspoon to each pint of water during the day.

you can totally exceed that. up to 3 Tbsps per day. I do 2 T at the present time.
you use it WITH weight release... not for weight release. it assists your skin to bounce back.
add elasticity to your skin!!!
