Methysulfonylmethane or MSM

MSM or dimethylsulfone is an organosulfur compound with the formula (CH3)2SO2. This colourless solid features the sulfone functional group and is considered relatively inert chemically. It occurs naturally in some primitive plants and is present in small amounts in many foods and beverages and it is marketed as a dietary supplement, although its benefits are disputed

Two recent studies by Dr. Ronald Lawrence measured the effects of MSM in athletes and patients with joint problems:
  • First, injured athletes taking MSM, in addition to their usual physical therapy, reported improved recovery (58%) versus a placebo group (33%). In addition, athletes using MSM had 40% fewer office visits during treatment
  • Second, a double-blind study showed joint patients with joint pain taking 2,250 mg of MSM daily for 6 weeks reported an average 82% improvement, compared to 18% taking placebo
MSM is very beneficial to athletes and active individuals. It has been shown to improve post workout recovery and to decrease recovery time for soft tissue injuries in athletes.

Glucosamine and MSM work better together for arthritis
A study, published in Clinical Drug Investigations, made big news in July 2004. The study found that the combination of glucosamine and MSM is more effective against osteoarthritis than either nutrient alone. Although the individual nutrients did improve pain and swelling in patients' affected joints, the combined therapy was more effective than MSM or glucosamine alone in reducing these symptoms and improving joint function. In a clinical trial conducted at at the Institute of Medical Sciences in Hyderabad, India, 118 patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis were treated three times daily with either 500 milligrams of glucosamine, 500 milligrams of MSM, a combination of both, or an inactive placebo. After 12 weeks of treatment, the average pain score had fallen from 1.74 to 0.65 in the glucosamine-only group. In MSM only participants, it fell from 1.53 to 0.74. However, in the combination group, it fell from 1.7 to 0.36. The combination treatment had a faster effect on pain and inflammation compared to glucosamine alone. All of the treatments were well tolerated. "It can be concluded," the researchers say, "that the combination of MSM with glucosamine provides better and more rapid improvement in patients with osteoarthritis."

OBJECTIVE: Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and the second most common cause of long-term disability among middle-aged and older adults in the United States. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a popular dietary supplement used as a single agent and in combination with other nutrients, and purported to be beneficial for arthritis. However, there is paucity of evidence to support the use of MSM.
METHODS: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted. Fifty men and women, 40-76 years of age with knee OA pain were enrolled in an outpatient medical center. Intervention was MSM 3g or placebo twice a day for 12 weeks (6g/day total). Outcomes included the Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index visual analogue scale (WOMAC), patient and physician global assessments (disease status, response to therapy), and SF-36 (overall health-related quality of life).
RESULTS: Compared to placebo, MSM produced significant decreases in WOMAC pain and physical function impairment (P<0.05). No notable changes were found in WOMAC stiffness and aggregated total symptoms scores. MSM also produced improvement in performing activities of daily living when compared to placebo on the SF-36 evaluation (P<0.05).
CONCLUSION: MSM (3g twice a day) improved symptoms of pain and physical function during the short intervention without major adverse events. The benefits and safety of MSM in managing OA and long-term use cannot be confirmed from this pilot trial, but its potential clinical application is examined.
