Welcome to the MSM Guide.

This website serves as a resource for consumers, researchers, medical practitioners and media who want to learn about the science and evidence for MSM. 

MSM, methylsulfonylmethane (METH-əl-sul-FON-il-METH-ane) provides sulfur, a vital building block of joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails, and methyl groups, which support many vital biochemical processes in the body, including energy production. MSM is a naturally-occurring nutrient found in small amounts of many foods. As a dietary supplement, MSM is synthesized. When made correctly, it is identical to that found in nature. MSM can be taken alone or in combination with other joint health supplements, such as glucosamine and chondroitin.

Published, peer-reviewed clinical research in the U.S. has shown MSM is safe and effective in increasing joint comfort and supporting a normal range of motion.

The MSM Advisory Authority welcomes any questions you may have. Please visit the FAQ page or submit your own question about MSM. If you are involved or interested in MSM research, we invite your participation.
