Joint Support Supplement MSM Proves Unmatched
Apart from Omega-3 Glucosamine and condroitin, there’s one element that is often overlooked and often ignored as an essential joint support supplement.
MSM* is a unique sulfur compound (without the sulfur odor) that is chemically identical to organic sulfur. Known to be completely safe taken even in high doses, MSM is, for me, the most effective joint support supplement I have ever experienced.
In 2004, I underwent ACL replacement surgery in my left knee. After several years of trying to manage the pain and discomfort I experienced during outdoor activities like golfing, fly fishing, and snowboarding, I became more concerned about the safety level of flying as a private pilot, putting not only myself at risk, but my friends and family passengers as well. If left untreated, I could not predict what this knee injury could result into. It was a procedure I could no longer ignore.
Post surgery recovery was no picnic. Anyone who has experienced going under the knife for any type of joint surgery can relate! This is my story! I am not, in any way, offering any medical advice whatsoever to anyone who finds this article informative. I am simply sharing the benefits I have personally found using MSM as my primary, almost stand alone joint support supplement. I say “almost” because I’m a health nut. I can’t swear to you that MSM alone is the sole reason I’m able to be as active in doing what I love. But I only need to look at what I was not doing while joint pain was an issue.
The list of how I have benefited since I began taking some form of MSM is long. Shortly after surgery and an extensive due-diligence investigation into various joint support supplement products, I thought I’d give MSM a chance. I’ve taken many products touted as a joint support supplement over the years and they all provided some level of benefit. How do I know MSM is the leader among them? Because every time I stop taking MSM as a joint support supplement for any extended period (because I’m feeling so great, I start thinking I don’t need to continue its use), I begin to experience the discomfort and sometimes immobilizing pain that follows. Even as I continued using other glucosamine and condroitin based joint support supplement products, my mobility would slide as the time passed without MSM in the mix.
MSM falls under the category as a dietary supplement. But for me, it’s a joint support supplement! There are dietary and health product distributors that promote and market the benefits of MSM as other than strictly a joint support supplement. Some products contain MSM as an ingredient to a brand’s formulation for addressing specific needs like a detoxification pathway or an anti-bloating remedy. You can even find MSM for your dog or cat! The point is it’s the MSM that’s the core ingredient in these by-products simply because of its effectiveness to perform.
Joint support supplement MSM brands like BAUER Nutrition comes in powder form. The best form to take in MSM because of the quick and ease at which the MSM will assimilate into your system. The BAUER line of products are a bit higher. But product quality is also higher. And they have a standing 60 day no-hassle full money-back guarantee.
Doctors Best OptiMSM 1500 mg is also good for those who would rather take the capsule form. These are but a few brands marketing MSM among other dietary or joint support supplement lines. I have used both capsule and powder form. My preference is powder simply because is seems to assimilate quickly.
It is not the particular marketing brand that makes or breaks the performance of how effective MSM performs. But rather the label under which lab the product is produced by. Let me say it again. It is not the brand selling the product! It is the label, the lab under which the product is actually produced that makes all the difference!
MSM products that carry the OptiMSM label as with Doctors Best OptiMSM Powder seem to perform better. OptiMSM is considered to be the purest lab produced MSM on the market. The label is usually displayed in blue or with a black background replacing the blue. The most effective form for me is the powder form. However, you will find that MSM bone and joint support supplement products are available in many forms through any vendor marketing MSM. It’s all about personal preference. But the key to remember is where you find the OptiMSM label, you’re assured of the purest form of MSM as a joint support supplement for the these reasons to follow.
