Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) contains sulfur in a form the body can readily use. Sulfur is necessary for the production of collagen, glucosamine, and chondroitin, which are the building blocks of cartilage and contibutes to maintaining healthy connective tissue and membrane flexibility. Sulfur is also necessary in the formation of glutathione, which functions as one of our body's best natural antioxidants. In addition, MSM has been promoted as having powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties; making it useful in treating arthritis, joint disorders and injuries.

Glucosamine stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAG's), important proteins found in cartilage and proteoglycans, the water-holding molecules that make up the cartilage. Glucosamine has been shown to not only help pain, but also rehabilitate damaged cartilage. These compounds may also have anti-inflammatory activity.
OptiMSM combines the patented OptiMSM brand of MSM (methlysulfonylmethane), which is backed by scientific research, with the original, clinically studied glucosamine sulfate. MSM is a bioavailable form of sulfur, which is necessary for the proper function of the body's skin, hair, nails, connective tissue, amino acid production, immune system, and healthy joints. Glucosamine sulfate is a simple, small molecule providing up to 98% absorbability for optimum penetration and clinically studied to support joint function.
