MSM has been widely researched and studied around the world for its reported health benefits were it has shown to have strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and detoxifying properties. In cases of osteoarthritis taking 500mg MSM daily for three months, provides analgesic and anti-inflammatory action and contributes to joint health. According to a double-blind clinical study, the results are accelerated when combining with the administration of glucosamine sulfate, significantly improving the quality of life of the patient.
