Benefits of MSM for Injuries and Skin
Saturday, October 1st 2005
Lignisul MSM improves recovery and reduces doctors visits for injuries.
Greenville, PA-A recent preliminary study showed that people suffering from sprains, strains, and athletic injuries may benefit from the use of Lignisul MSM.
The double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 24 patients (both male and female) showed that those taking Lignisul MSM had a significantly improved level of recovery (58.3%) compared to those on placebo (33.3%). In addition, patients on Lignisul had 40% fewer doctors visits before recovery.
"Lignisul MSM should be considered an invaluable addition for the treatment of short-term athletic injuries of the type involved in this study," said Ronald M. Lawrence, M.D., Ph.D., and assistant clinical professor of the UCLA School of Medicine, Los Angeles.
"Lignisul MSM may offer a significant new nutritional substance for the control of arthritic pain without the serious side effects of other pharmaceuticals," Dr. Lawrence said.
Clinical trials have shown that topical Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM can help relieve joint and muscle pain and aid in building cartilage.
A combination of Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM provides support for healthy joint, cartilage and connective tissue function. Regular use of Younger Secrets Joint and Muscle Repair Cream will help in promoting joint mobility and flexibility, easing joint stiffness and pain, protection and growth of cartilage.
Beneficial effects of MSM includes many different skin conditions such as helping remove new scar tissue, acne, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, scabies, nappy rash and certain fungal infections.
It helps with maintaining the structure of body proteins, the formation of keratin (for hair and nails) and collagen for healthy bones and skin, the production of immunoglobulins for the immune system, the reactions that convert food into energy and to help elimination of toxins from the body.
MSM has also been reported to have analgesia and pain relieving benefits, act as an anti-inflammatory, build and maintain healthy joints through its effects on collagen, reduces muscle spasms and relieves muscle soreness, dilates blood vessels and improves circulation and it is also needed for bile production and the formation of taurine.
