Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)

Product Description: Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring dietary sulfur that is a derivative of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). MSM is naturally present in animal tissues and plants including fruits, vegetables, and grains. However, it is easily lost when fresh food is processed and/or stored. Unlike DMSO, it does not have an unpleasant odor.

Indications for Use: The most common use of MSM in pets is for joint and pain relief. In these situations it acts as an anti-inflammatory. Other studies claim that it can be used for tendon/ligament problems, parasite infections, to reduce allergic reactions, and for stomach or intestine upset. Use of this product for these later situations should be done with skepticism until additional research has been completed.
