Anyone tried MSM?

Posted by Raleigh on 8/29/99 at 00:00 (010330)

MSM is a bio-available form of sulphur that is supposed to ease imflammation and increase circulation. I feed it to my horse to keep his soft tissues and joints healthy. It has been touted for use in humans, too. My feet are doing MUCH better already (acupuncture, stretching, orthotics, magnets, low-carb diet) but I thought I'd try MSM to see if it helps get rid of the last bit of tightness. I bought a bottle yesterday. Has anyone else tried it?

Yes! It helped me a lot with inflammation although I had to take 6000 mg a day to see a real difference, I have had a great reduction in joint pain and swelling. Also at this dose NO side effects!

Yes, I've tried it for well over a month, didn't see any benefit. I am using Bromelain now -- I saw a decrease in pain within a week. It's been about 6 weeks now and the decrease in pain is holding, so I'll stick with Bromelain.
