OptiMSM Flake (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane), 16 oz. Dietary Supplement.
OptiMSM (tm) is a trademarked name for a special high quality brand of MSM. Also available in capsules.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic sulfur compound. It can be found in the normal diets of humans and almost all other vertebrates. The proper chemical name for MSM is dimethyl sulfone. It is the primary, oxidized metabolite of dimethyl sulfoxide, and it appears to share many of its parent compoundâ€™s properties.
MSM belongs to a family of compounds that are abundant in the food chains of terrestrial and ocean life. These compounds are the stable end product of the methyl-S-methane series of compounds that provide bioavailable sulfur to as many as 85% of all living organisms. These compoundsâ€”principally dimethyl sulfide (DMS)â€”are among the Earthâ€™s few primary forms of sulfur.
The sulfur cycle begins in the ocean, where algae and phytoplankton release sulfur compounds, called tertiary dimethylsulfonium salts. These salts are transformed to DMS, a highly volatile compound. Oceanic DMS is the major form of sulfur to the atmosphere and contributes both to the tropospheric sulfur burden and to particle formation and growth in the atmosphere.
MSM comes to you as a white crystalline powder. Our MSM is pure and contains no fillers, extenders, binders or any other additives. The flakes can be slightly bitter for some when mixed with water. Capsules also available.
