MSM Powder (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane)
MSM powder stands for methyl‐sulphonyl‐methane, a form of biologically active sulphur that is a component in the formation of collagen, elastin, cartilage and keratin within the body.
This sulphur is an essential nutrient required for the body’s production of proteins such as those found in bones, connective tissues, hair, skin and nails. Small quantities of MSM occur naturally in many unprocessed foods but this can quickly be lost when these foods are cooked. As such many people do not consume sufficient amounts of MSM from food sources alone.
Natural or lab-produced?
Our MSM is lab-made. These days MSM is rarely produced from tree bark as it once was, the consensus is that there’s absolutely no nutritional benefit to producing from tree bark and there’s the added bonus that the lab produced MSM is a far more environmentally friendly method of production.
Country of Origin: China
Because MSM powder promotes collagen production it is very popular with people who appreciate having a radiant complexion, glowing skin and glossy hair. Sulphur is often referred to as “the beauty mineral” because it is reported to have such beneficial effects for skin and hair.
MSM is formed naturally as a by‐product of algae growing in the oceans and then is evaporated into the clouds. With rain, it falls to Earth and becomes food and nutrition for all living organisms. MSM is highly concentrated in plants watered by rain, such as pine bark, wild grasses, aloe vera, etc. However it is almost impossible to extract MSM from these plants which is why MSM is created in lab conditions.
This product has been tested for heavy metals, e.coli, yeast, mould, salmonella and foreign matter. This product contains no bulking agents, added sugar, palm oil or GMO.

Start with small quantities of MSM, initially ½ tablespoon in a glass of water and increase the dose gradually to 1 – 2 tablespoons each day. For optimum absorption take with a botanical source of vitamin C such as camu camu, acerola or rosehip.
Tip: MSM dissolves better in warm rather than cold water, a squeeze of lemon juice will also make it more palatable.
How our MSM powder is processed
Our MSM is expertly produced by one of the leading manufacturers of MSM in China. The production of MSM powder is designed to replicate the chemical reaction occurring in the upper atmosphere that generates MSM in nature.
Once the MSM has been synthesized, it undergoes centrifugal separation in order to eliminate most of the existing water in the mixture. The remaining solution is then filtered to ensure there are no foreign particles before it is allowed to cool and form solid particles. This crystallization process is essential for the purification of MSM: as most impurities do not fit into the lattice structure of the crystals, they remain part of the separated liquid solution and do not make it into the final product.
The MSM crystals are dried and carefully screened once more for any contamination. The resulting product is a white, odourless crystalline material resembling sugar, which is highly soluble and mixes easily into water or juice.
