Vita-Fit MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane), is a vital nutrient commonly found in raw foods but easily destroyed through processing and cooking. Almost everyone in our modern society is deficient in MSM but with age the deficiency grows even more pronounced. What�s happening in our lives today is that we�re processing too many foods. The highest concentration of MSM is found in milk. MSM is a natural component of many fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meat. However, heat and processing reduce the MSM in foods. Onions, garlic, asparagus, cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts are sulfur-rich foods, but not as rich as eggs and red peppers. Food preparation, like washing and steaming, also reduces the levels of MSM.The most efficient way to assure sufficient levels of MSM in the body, or to benefit from the therapeutic benefits, is to include it as a staple of one�s daily nutritional supplement program. MSM is available in capsules that can be taken with meals. Although MSM is commonly characterized by its support for joint mobility, its benefits extend beyond this. In fact, in recent years athletes and fitness enthusiasts have begun to rely on MSM to support mobility and muscular health associated with injuries, strained or cramped muscles and over-extended joints.
It is also important to understand in that MSM is a naturally-occurring sulfur compound found in the body, it is not similar to inorganic sulfides, sulfites and sulfates to which many individuals are allergic.
Dosage:1-4 capsules daily with food.
Research has also shown that, when available to it in sufficient levels, MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane appears to coat all the mucus membranes of the body, creating a shield through which:
- Air-borne allergy-causing contaminants such as household dust (mite faeces), pollens etc. can be shielded from entering the tissue of the lungs and nasal passages.
- Industrial contaminants such as exhaust gasses, solvents etc. are also hindered.
- This coating can also provide a hostile living environment for parasites and fungi.
- Undigested food and toxins are deterred from entering the blood stream through a leaky gut.
People with high blood pressure need to be careful of MSM and should consult their health professional before taking it.
Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare practitioner
