Best List of the Top 12 benefits of MSM Powder

How MSM Powder Can Improve Your Life Without Any Risk of Side Effects



Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sulfur compound that helps build proteins in the body and is easy to absorb. It is also known as DMSO, but DMSO is typically not for human usage.

MSM contains sulfur and is found in many places, but with the typical American diet, we don’t consume as much as it as we could be eating.

Because our bodies really need MSM to create proteins, it can be super helpful to include MSM powder into your daily diet.


Top 12 Benefits of MSM Powder:

  1. Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  2.  Collagen Synthesis
  3.  Glutathione
  4.  Dissolves scar tissue
  5. Decreases inflammation
  6.  Increases elasticity in the body (joints, tissues, connecting joints, blood flow in veins)
  7.  Improves digestion
  8.  Skin recovery
  9.  Muscle Recovery
  10.  Cancer treatments (Breast Cancer specifically)
  11.  Allergies
  12.  Hair growth


Rob uses Ultra Botanicals – MSM Powder 4000 mg. – Joint Support – 16 oz. (454 Grams), but there are many other brands out there.

You don’t need to use a ton of MSM Powder to get the full benefits. Just put some into a small cup of water and you’ll probably want to drink another glass of water afterwards to get the flavor out of your mouth.

If you prefer to not take MSM supplements, you can also eat the following vegetables for the same benefits. Just make sure to buy locally grown, organic, pesticide free vegetables for the full effect!

  • Peas
  • Spinach
  • Mustard Greens
  • Green Cabbage
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Cruciferous Vegetables
