MSM Supplement Information

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a substance found in many foods. It is also sold as a dietary supplement. People take MSM for a number of conditions, such as:
 
MSM provides the body with sulfur, which is used for making certain amino acids. However, it should be noted that most people get enough sulfur from eating protein.
 
Because it is a dietary supplement, MSM is not as closely regulated as prescription and certain nonprescription drugs. Thus, it's important to choose your MSM supplement from a reputable manufacturer. Information about MSM should be carefully reviewed before you begin treatment to help ensure your safety. For example, while most people tolerate this supplement well, MSM can cause side effects such as nausea, headache, and diarrhea.
