MSM Joint, Muscle & Tissue Support Gel is a natural anti-inflammatory, with NO Oil, NO Odor and NO Dyes. Since all pain is caused by inflammation, the removal of inflammation will also remove pain. This MSM gel should remove the inflammation within 5 to 10 minutes and will last an average of 8 to 18 hours. Layer it on for more relief. Apply one layer for minor pain, two layers for moderate pain, and three layers for extreme pain. Rub the gel on, but do not rub it in. Apply and let dry for 1 minute before applying subsequent layers. The non-sticky, therapeutic grade aloe vera gel base also provides moisturizing benefits and will not dry out your skin.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), also known as dimethyl sulfone (DMSO2) and methyl sulfone, is an organic sulfur-containing compound that is essential for optimal health. Without sufficient MSM sulfur, your body cannot maintain an appropriate level of homeostasis.
Some potential benefits of MSM are:
- Improves joint flexibility
- Reduces stiffness and swelling
- Improves circulation and cell vitality
- Reduces pain and may reduce scar tissue
