Sogeval MSM Crystals For Dogs and Cats
MSM is a Vital Building Block of Joints, Cartilage,
Skin, Hair and Nails
Sulfur is required by all animals for optimal health and
performance. MSM [methylsulfonylmethane] is a source of bio-available sulfur, an
important nutrient in the connection of disulfide bonds in articular and
connective tissue and the synthesis of amino acids. MSM is also a natural
antioxidant that inhibits and reduces inflammation.
MSM is an indispensable component in overall health. Its
influence is found in every cell in the body and its nutrients are used to
continually create new healthy cells to replace worn out cells. MSM supports
joint flexibility, reduces stiffness and swelling and reduces pain associated
with aging and injury. It plays a significant role in bones, muscles, skin,
nails and hair health. In addition, it is a nutritional factor in connective
tissue health and the formation of collagen. MSM is an especially versatile
supplement and it provides the body with the raw materials needed for a healthy
and active pet.
MSM is a natural sulfur-containing compound produced by
kelp in the ocean. Sulfur is stored in almost every cell in the body. The
highest concentrations are found in joints, hair, skin, and nails. MSM is
claimed to be an antioxidant, cell rejuvenator, and joint healer.
MSM is reported to enhance the structural integrity of
connective tissue, and help reduce scar tissue by altering cross-linkages which
contribute to scar formation. MSM has been promoted as having powerful
anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties, blocking the pain perception in
certain nerve fibers before the pain impulse reaches the brain.
MSM may fortify the body's natural barriers against
allergens. Oral MSM has been reported to help alleviate the allergic response to
pollen and food in pets.
Sulfur is needed to maintain the cell membrane
permeability by regulating the sodium potassium pump. This system allows fluids
and nutrients to flow freely into the cell and allows waste and toxins to exit
the cell. Each time the body removes toxins from the cells, it also removes the
compound that neutralized the toxin. This is why sulfur is needed in the diet on
a frequent, regular basis.
Sulfur is necessary for the production of collagen and
keratin, protein substances necessary for the health and maintenance of the
skin, nails and hair. Sulfur is given for a variety of skin disorders and
is especially useful when the skin is red as in cases of Allergic Dermatitis in
MSM is an effective pain killer for many types of
chronic pain. MSM blocks the transfer of pain impulses through nerve
fibers [C-Fibers]. MSM also blocks inflammations and inflammatory
processes, and enhances the activity of cortisol, a natural anti-inflammatory
hormone produced by the body. MSM also acts as a muscle relaxant which
benefits the chronic pain associated with muscle tension. The types
of pain treated successfully with MSM include traumatic injury, osteoarthritis,
spinal pain, muscle pain, burns and post-operative pain.
