MSM (Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane) is a naturally-occuring form of dietary sulfur found in fresh, raw foods and rain water. Sulfur is a vital mineral that is needed by the body for normal structure and function. It makes up the protein and connective tissue that comprises our body mass, assists enzymes in performing chemical reactions, and protects us from oxidative stress and harmful effects of toxicity. MSM softens leathery internal tissues by rebuilding connective tissue with elastic sulfur bonds. MSM increases flexibility, hastens recovery time from sore muscles, and is excellent for recovery from athletic injuries.
MSM is found throughout nature but is most notably a component of rainwater. It all starts when tiny plankton in the oceans give off a gas called dimethylsulfide (DMS). DMS rises into the atmosphere where it reacts with sunlight and oxygen. The DMS is oxidized and MSM is created. Water droplets in clouds absorb the MSM and return it to the Earth in the form of rain.
Traditionally MSM has come into the human diet by drinking rainwater or by eating foods watered primarily by rain. It can also be absorbed through skin by direct contact with rainwater. But modern living and food production leave most people with very little contact with rainwater. Most crops are watered by irrigation or are grown in greenhouses and both techniques can leave foods lacking natural amounts of bio-available sulfur.
Sunfood MSM is extracted from natural sources and is extensively tested to be free of contaminants. Some low quality MSM is created using solvents that can result in toxic by-products.

MSM has gained much of its reputation as a natural solution for pain. It is frequently used to help treat back pain, headaches, muscle pain, athletic injuries, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, arthritis and much more. MSM can help to reduce inflammation and speed recovery from injury. MSM helps to make cell walls permeable, allowing nutrients to flow freely into cells and allowing the cells to easily expel toxins. Sulfur is essential for collagen formation and detoxification, and it also plays a role in repairing and maintaining the immune system and balancing blood sugar.
MSM displays a remarkable affinity for foods rich in vitamin C. We recommend using with Camu Camu, as it contains the highest levels of vitamin C of any food in the world.
Thousands of testimonials exist from people whose lives have changed by taking MSM.
Take 1 capsule per 40 lbs. of body weight 2 times a day.
Our MSM comes in a vegetable capsule for ease of use. It is best taken in the morning on an empty stomach for maximum absorption. MSM works very well in conjunction with vitamin C. Camu Camu is said to contain more vitamin C than any other known botanical source.
We recommend taking the recommended amount of capsules with 1/4 tsp Camu Camu in water or juice. This combination is extremely beneficial for immunity and essential for building supple, radiant skin.
