MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), also known as dimethyl sulfone (DMSO2) and methyl sulfone, is an organic sulfur-containing compound that is essential for optimal health. Without sufficient MSM sulfur, your body cannot maintain an appropriate level of homeostasis. OptiMSM® has earned the reputation for the purest, safest, and most consistent MSM in the world.

“OptiMSM” is Vegan Certified, Non-Gluten and Free of Animal Testing!

Some companies are selling MSM by saying that their MSM is “Organic”! And to only purchase “Organic” MSM !  They are selling on the popular catch phrase of “BUY ORGANIC”  that it is better for you and your health…….  This could not be farther from the truth with MSM!

There are 2 (two) different meanings for the word “ORGANIC”. The first definition is “Organic” in nature” and the second definition is “Grown Organically”!   All MSM is “Organic in Nature” as it contains carbon. This is the chemistry side of MSM. There are 2 methyl groups in MSM that contain carbon. Therefore, Organic in nature…MSM cannot be grown “Organically” ! Don’t be fooled by these companies saying they are grown “Organically” !


MSM is the only substance on earth that can make the cells in your body more permeable!

Your cells membrane (the outer wall or lining of the cell) get harder with age. This process inhibits some of the nutrients from our foods, vitamins and minerals from penetrating the cell wall or membrane and converting to energy and other things the cells and body need on a daily basis.

By taking MSM orally as a daily dietary supplement, your cell membrane or wall become more permeable and allow the food nutrients to pass though and create the energy our bodies need on a daily basis as well as allowing other vitamins and minerals to do their jobs.

MSM or sulfur is the third most needed substance in the human body!

Why You Need Immune-Health Dietary Supplements Year-Round

A great article from teaching customers the importance of a Dietary Supplements Year-Round.

Immune health should be an easy sell, but convincing consumers to invest in products that support the immune system on a regular basis hasn’t typically been easy. Why? Most people don’t think about immune function on a day-to-day basis and only seek treatments either when they get sick or during the typical cold and flu season. Getting consumers to routinely purchase dietary supplements, foods, and beverages that support immune health is a challenge that those in the business continue to face. “Most [consumers] do not understand that their immune system is constantly being attacked and weakened by stressors both inside and outside the body,” says Doug Reyes, sales and marketing manager for Embria Health Sciences (Ankeny, IA), which  supplies the branded immune-health ingredient EpiCor. Reyes says it is up to his company and others to educate consumers about the need for year-round immune-health support through diet, exercise, lifestyle choices, and fortified supplements, foods, and beverages.

DOMS? OptiMSM Can Help

Joint soreness and immobility can be incredibly frustrating as it reduces energy and the ability to carry out daily activities. Overtime, wear and tear on joints, tendons, and connective tissue can accumulate causing more pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion.

OptiMSM® has been shown through research studies to support joint and connective tissue health. A study published in the Journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition recruited 22 runners to take the sulfur-based nutritional supplement, or a placebo, to determine the effects on muscle and joint pain. Runners participating in a half marathon experienced less joint and muscle pain while taking MSM supplementation after the race was finished, when compared to the placebo group. Read more

The Truth About MSM

Is MSM natural or synthetic? There has been confusion over the years regarding MSM and its “natural” form. While MSM is naturally found in trace amounts of certain foods, it is too negligible to extract for nutritional supplementation. Some marketers may claim their MSM is 100% natural, but this is not possible because all MSM is created through a chemical reaction between dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). This chemical reaction forms an MSM that is identical to the molecule found in nature.

Variances with commercially available MSM are found in the quality of the raw material, purification process, testing, product form, consistency, and country of origin.   Read more
