MSM is a natural occurring sulphur. It comes in many different forms. I use it in powder form (I add only a teaspoon) into my daily shake and use it in my organic skin balm which I use all over my face and body for repair.


  • Helps with joint tissue inflammation and muscle cramps
  • Boosts the look and health of your skin, hair, nails and teeth
  • Used for pain management (anti-inflammatory property)
  • Helps protect against oxidative damage (antioxidants like glutathione – removes heavy metals) 
  • Benefits PMS, stomach ulcers / sour stomach, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and yeast infections
  • Supports autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, snoring
  • Cream helps with wrinkles, pain, stretch marks, hemorrhoids, sun / wind burn, scar tissue and wound healing
  • The Chinese believe it balances your ‘ying’ and ‘yang’

 MSM Can Also be Found in:

  • Raw vegetables – but only in a very low quantity
  • The highest amounts are actually found in bone broth, raw milk and port wine!

There are so many benefits and it’s inexpensive. I typically purchase mine online in either tablet or powder form and consume only a small amount daily. Just make sure to build up the quantity slowly so your body can get used to it gradually.
