MSM is reported to be able to normalise certain body functions in patients displaying physiological symptoms of stress, specifically gastrointestinal upset, inflammation of mucus membranes, allergic reactions, drug hypersensitivity and inflammatory disorders including arthritis, muscle cramps, and infectious parasites.
MSM is said to control acidity in the stomach, so giving aid in cases of ulcers. MSM is said to be no more toxic than water. If you overdose, the extra MSM becomes inert and just passes through your system.
MSM has one side effect…. your fingernails, toenails and hair are said to grow faster and become stronger.
The reason is, there is more MSM in hair and nail cells than in any other part of the body. Testimonials appear to indicate that MSM is particularly beneficial in cases of candida albicans, diabetes, diverticulitis, emphysema, chronic headaches, hypoglycaemia, allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, and athletes foot. It is also reported to be good for a hang-over. MSM comes with a research and information leaflet.
