MSM is a Natural Sulphur SourceAbundant unicellular marine algae participate in an on-going "sulphur cycle” of nature whereby the oceans constantly release a simple volatile organic form of sulphur, dimethylsulphide into the atmosphere. To produce it they use simple inorganic sulphate from the seawater. Interestingly, dimethylsulphide and other organic sulphides like it are present in garlic and are at least partly responsible for its odour.This dimethylsulphide is oxidized in the atmosphere, first to an intermediate form DMSO and then to MSM, which is then returned to both land and sea in rain. Therefore, natural waters and the soil contain MSM. The MSM is taken up by plants including food crops and so directly contributes to our nutrition.MSM: A Natural Ingredient of the EnvironmentMSM is therefore no chemical gimmick, but rather an entirely natural part of mankind’s inheritance. Humans, if they eat natural foods, generally ingest up to 70mg a day, of which about a third, say 23mg, is elemental sulphur. The hypothesis that lies behind MSM as a nutritional supplement is that this 70mg a day represents an important nutritional contribution and that today it is being lost in our diets through wrong food choices and the loss of MSM from foods through cooking and processing.How does MSM Sulphur Relate to Amino Acid Sulphur?In a person with a good supply of MSM from natural produce the intake of amino acid sulphur is almost three times as high as the intake of MSM sulphur. Clearly then, MSM does not normally rival the sulphur amino acids in respect of the amount of organic sulphur it provides. Nonetheless it seems that one has to look to something more than just the quantity of organic sulphur if one is to justify and explain the special nutritional role of the sulphur in MSM.The Special Metabolic Availability of MSM SulphurSulphur reaching the body as MSM may be uniquely valuable. The evidence for this depends upon experiments with radioactively labeled MSM, wherein the radioactive sulphur from the MSM found its way very readily to sites within metabolically active proteins such as muscle protein, structural protein fibres, hormones and enzymes. Since it seems clear that these sulphur atoms must come mostly in the first place from dietary sulphur from amino acids, one has to postulate that the role of the MSM is rather more subtle and depends not so much upon its quantity as upon its special properties.
It is possible that the MSM sulphur may be responsible for the maintenance of metabolically important sulphur molecules throughout the body, rather than their provision in the first place. Its role may keep the body’s biological sulphur compounds in their metabolically active condition. If that is the case, then one would expect that MSM, used as a supplement, might well serve to maintain the integrity of physical structures within the body – especially those that contain and depend upon protein fibres. Also, the ability to maintain the integrity of enzymes, co-enzymes and hormones would imply that cells throughout the body would be maintained in a far more active and vital condition.
