MSM (methylsulfonyl-methane) is often called organic sulfur. It is the fourth most abundance element in the body and is a vital component of cartilage and the other soft tissues of the body.
Besides providing the body with essential sulfur, MSM has antioxidant properties.* It is all three of these bio-characteristics that make MSM so effective in creating healthy joints and reducing pain associated with strenuous exercise.*
MSM is 34% sulfur. Sulfur helps maintain the structure of connective tissue by forming cross-linkages through disulfide bonds, i.e., sulfur strengthens the tissues that make up the joint. The fundamental building blocks of joint cartilage are glycosaminoglycans (GAGS). It is the disulfide bonds that link together the GAG molecular chains. The disulfide bonds reduce conformational flexibility of GAG chains, making cartilage firm and resilient. Cartilage integrity is thus a sulfur-dependent state.*
About Paractin® MSM
