Where did I find this?: I thought I might never be able to find plant-derived, non-synthetic MSM (stands for Methylsulfonylmethane) crystals, but I did. Didn't find this one at a tradeshow, or at the health store- found it all on my own, with a little research being done in the process when I was working on growing my hair and nails back after they were falling out and chipping off (respectively) when I was healing from Crohn's.
Why I Love It: Our bodies absolutely need sulfur, as it is stored in every one of our cells. Sulfur is key to maintaing healthy joints, nail, skin and hair. I guess this means it makes you a little prettier and loosens your joints up so you can add a wiggle to your walk too. I swear- my hair has never been shinier and seems to grow crazy fast. The specific one that I use is the only one I have found that is 100% vegan so that's cool too.
Why You Will Love It: MSM certainly isn't the tastiest of superfoods- but you won't even notice it if you sneak it into salad dressings, soups (post cooking) or smoothies. It is a simple way to get very important nutrients into your body to promote overall health.
Why You Need It: If you suffer from arthritis, constipation, heartburn, ulcers, migraines- well, pretty well the whole kit and kaboodle- MSM is proven to reduce all the accompanying symptoms of the aforementioned, all while prettying up your skin, hair and nails. Win win!
Tell me: Do you use MSM crystals? How do you incorporate them into your diet?
