99.9% Pure MSM - Research & Patents

RESEARCH


      Dr. Stanley Jacob of the Oregon Health Sciences University and his associate, chemist Robert J. Herschler, the pioneer researchers, conducted extensive laboratory and clinical testing and reported amazing health benefits for a wide variety of health problems with MSM. These findings were so remarkable, that MSM has quickly become one of the most popular and powerful natural health supplements of the decade. MSM can help improve your health in many ways.

      Robert Herschler began his study of MSM in 1955. His goal was to find commercial uses for this new chemical. Research costs limited his investigations to very select applications. Food use is the only significant market at this time. Mr. Herschler's investigations led to his securing a total of nine United States and several additional foreign patents governing the biological and cosmetic uses of MSM.

      Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is known to be a self-solvent and an active carrier, crossing membranes without damage.*  Found extensively in nature, DMSO has analgesic properties, works as an anti-inflammatory, stimulates synthesis of growth hormone and also has a bacteriostatic effect.*  The major drawback to all of this is the associated strong odor, along with the resultant foul breath and skin irritation that result from even mild exposure to DMSO.

      Methy-sufonyl-methane (MSM), a stable metabolite of DMSO, presents a dramatic improvement over what had previously been available. MSM is an odorless, virtually tasteless, white crystalline substance. The key portion of MSM is the sulfur component. Sulfur is necessary for the proper formation of proteins. One of the essential components in all life forms, sulfur is involved in amino acid production, connective tissue, skin, hair, nails, (in animals, hide and hooves), enzymes, hormones, and immunoglobulins.*
