What is Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) Powder?
It’s a bit of a mouthful and not as spoken about as some other nutrients but Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) is something you should definitely know about, especially if you’re looking for something to maintain and strengthen your hair and keep your skin healthy.
MSM is a natural source of sulphur. Sulphur is a mineral that is found in all cells in the body, including hair. ‘Sulphur bonds’ are needed for strong, flexible and healthy hair. This is because Sulphur is vital for the formation of amino acids in our bodies and amino acids help provide hair with moisture and strength, helping repair surface damage of hair.
The amino acids that MSM helps produce promote the formation of cells and bonds in our hair follicles, strengthening existing hair and helping with new hair growth. Additionally, MSM is involved in the production of Keratin and collagen, two proteins that are vital for healthy hair growth and strength. Collagen helps support hair strength and Keratin helps make hair less prone to breakage.

Keratin is a structural component of our skin, so by stimulating its production, MSM may also help make our skin look healthier and more youthful. Some studies suggest that MSM may be effective in reducing visual signs of skin ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, and may also provide relief from skin conditions such as rosacea.
