MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane. This is a small, light molecule that is easily absorbed by the body. MSM is the form in which sulfur occurs naturally in all living organisms and in which it is biologically active. MSM is available as an odorless, white, powder that dissolves well in, for example, warm water.

A molecule of MSM is broken down in the body into a sulphate group (sulphur group) and two methyl groups. There is no residue left.

Methyl groups are the building blocks from which all organic molecules are built. Without these groups, no new DNA can be formed and no new cells can be made. The formation of a large number of molecules also depends on methyl groups. Think of certain neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, choline, noradrenaline and adrenaline. In addition, methyl groups are essential for detoxification processes that take place in the liver. A sufficient supply of methyl groups is therefore very important for both physical and mental health.

OptiMSM® is the purest MSM and is the only one in the world that is purified by means of multiple distillation. It is produced in the United States by Bergstrom Nutrition. The high quality of OptiMSM makes our supplements a good addition for a healthy lifestyle.

MSM is very safe and has very few side effects. In only a few cases, mild intestinal complaints are reported. Remarkably, the substance can be ingested in virtually unlimited amounts by all life forms studied so far, without the appearance of poisoning. In addition, the half-life in the body is approximately 48 hours. It is still detectable in the urine after 480 hours. This makes MSM the most stable source of sulfur and methyl groups for the body. That said, it is highly recommended to choose high-quality MSM. At Kala Health we only sell OptiMSM, manufactured in the US by Bergstrom nutrition.
