M is For MSM

The theme for the
A-Z Challenge is
Aging into Longevity.

MSM (Methyl Sulfongl
Methane)

To me, MSM has
always been kind of
a "strange duck" as a
medical helper. It's
an off-shoot of DMSO
in a crystallized form. MSM is to joints and flexibility,
as the oil can was to the tin man.

I have a jar of MSM sitting on my herb shelf but I
don't use it very often. I just forget. It works wonders
in relieving arthritis pain. It goes right to town on the
build-up of calcium crystals in the joints of arthritic
conditions, bursitis and inflammation. MSM is one of
 the great re-discoveries and I should remember to use it
when those "Itis" boys come around. lol

  7. All I could think of when I first saw this was "Mainstream Media." Then, I wondered how that could affect your longevity.
    Then, I read the whole thing. Okay, that makes sense.

  10. I'm learning a lot, Manzi! I need to keep a jar of MSM for my knee hinges. Maybe it'll keep them from popping out when I walk.

  11. I've heard that drinking a tea of apple cider vinegar and honey in hot water does good for the arthritis too. I used to drink it daily, I'll start again now the weather is cold.
