GaiaThera Opti-MSM is an Excellent Source of Organic Sulfur
The primary function of Sulfur from MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is transporting oxygen across your cell membranes. Without intracellular oxygen, your health declines and you age sooner, rather than later.
Oxygen Transportation Across Cell Membranes Improves…
Cellular respiration (conversion of nutrients into energy, then waste elimination)
Healthy cell regeneration
Recovery from fatigue
Tissue rebuilding – this is the short list.
Cellular oxygen transport enables healthy cellular regeneration. It’s essential to joint and soft-tissue repair, and maintenance. It may speed up muscle recovery by assisting in the repair of micro-tears which occur after strenuous activity.
In conjunction with transporting oxygen across the cell membrane, Sulfur has demonstrated its ability to detoxify heavy metals, another route for cell regeneration.
Sulfur is also a key for your body to use amino acids – your body’s building blocks. Of all of the amino acids, some 70% are Sulfur-based.
Sulfur in GaiaThera Opti-MSM also helps with skin health, blood pressure and circulatory regulation, scar tissue reduction, pain reduction and damaged nerve regeneration.
Plants can produce Organic Sulfur – mammals cannot. We must ingest sufficient quantities every day.
The Biggest Effect of Oxygenation from Sulfur is on Physical Energy
Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize winner in 1931) explained that cells can exist in anaerobic terrain – that means without oxygen. Cells in permanent oxygen deprivation switch from respiration (breathing) to fermentation. With oxygen, cells convert glucose into energy and carbon dioxide. Without oxygen they convert glucose into 17 times less energy and lactic acid. Just think what better cellular oxygenation could do for you – seventeen times more energy!
Sulfur from MSM is not the yellow mineral sulfur from mining and it is not related to allergy-causing sulfa drugs. Bioavailable sulfur is consumed by people through plants.
MSM – Organic and Bioavailable Sulfur
In this context, organic means that the sulfur atoms are bound to carbon atoms – not that it’s grown naturally, without harmful chemicals. MSM contains 34% Organic Sulfur (by weight).
MSM is made up of 34% Organic Sulfur (organic in this sense simply means bound to a carbon). Sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in your body (after calcium and phosphorus) and it’s crucial to improving and maintaining your good health.
Sulfur is one of the most important minerals, right after sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and chlorine. It’s essential for detoxification of heavy metals and in the structure of amino acids.
Most MSM products ( pills, capsules or powder) have been processed after precipitation, making it less effective. Encapsulation process requires additives, especially silica (SiO2) used as a flow agents.
To be healthy, your body needs to actually use the sulfur you eat – in a bioavailable form – MSM.
Agricultural business of industrialized countries removed bioavailable sulfur from food with the introduction of chemical fertilizers. Since 1954, Organic Sulfur was virtually eliminated from our diets, with disastrous consequences for our health.
All MSM (Organic Sulfur) is manufactured through a chemical process in a chemical production facility. It is not expensive to make. Drug manufacturers appreciate the play on the word organic – in chemistry, molecules containing carbon are “organic”. The chemically produced product can be legally labeled as organic. All MSM is originally made in a chemical process.
Without MSM, your body will not work properly.
