A Low concentration of MSM in the body may result in both physical and psychological stress, organ and tissue malfunction and fatigue.

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl-sulphonyl-methane) is a naturally-occurring, organic-sulphur compound produced by planktons. It can be found naturally in foods such as cow's milk, meat, seafood (e.g. kelp), fruits, nuts, and vegetables.

Sulphur is a vital trace mineral stored by almost every cell in the body. Highest concentrations are found in the joints, coat, skin, and nails or hooves. Sulphur is essential for bodily function and to the formation of blood proteins, amino acids, connective tissue, and healthy skin.

Concentrations of MSM in the body decrease with age so deficiencies may occur and the degenerative effects of ageing begin.

Low concentration of MSM in the body may result in both physical and psychological stress, organ and tissue malfunction and fatigue.

Sulphur deficiencies can result in dull coats and/or skin problems, poor GI and immune systems, joint inflammation, pain and arthritis.

Holistic pet nutrition

Is your best-friend suffering in silence?

Environmental and household toxins and poor quality commercial pet foods can leave your pet's body and wellbeing under constant assault.

Over time this can create autoimmune symptoms, inflammation and pain. Chronic pain can strike animals in the prime of their life, making daily life painful and miserable.

Many vets and holistic practitioners advocate supplementing with MSM because it is a natural way provide your dog, cat or horse with a much needed dose of bioactive sulphur.

How MSM works

Inflammation is the root cause of all pain and disease. Conventional medications tend to mask this issue by simply ‘turning off’ nerves. This does not provide a long-term solution and typically creates other debilitating side-effects.

Once in the system, MSM helps reduce inflammation at cellular level, reducing pressure and softening cell membranes, making them more permeable and promoting the effective removal of toxins, wastes, and heavy metals while enabling the uptake of water and nutrients, rejuvenating cells, enhancing tissue repair and flexibility.

Cell permeability may sound like a minor detail, but in reality it's huge! The deterioration or lack of cell permeability is considered by many veterinarians to be the root cause of painful inflammation and allergies.

NutriFlex™ MSM

Promotes cellular rejuvenation

Sulphur is a vital mineral stored in almost all living cells, MSM is essential for optimal health, maintaining and supporting healthy cells.

NutriFlex™ MSM

Powerful antioxidant

MSM is a powerful antioxidant. It helps to clean the blood stream and flush toxins from the cells. It also protects against free radical damage.

MSM makes cell walls permeable. When skin cells are permeable, many toxins can be eliminated through the skin, easing the burden on the liver and kidneys.

MSM itself is not a cure for allergies, it does however relieve allergy symptoms by allowing allergens to be removed from the body more rapidly and effectively.

NutriFlex™ MSM

Promotes joint health

Most of the total body sulphur is stored in the muscles, skin, coat, and bones.

One of the most important functions of MSM is its effectiveness to relieve pain and inflammation.

When rigid fibrous tissue cells (such as joint cells) swell and become inflamed, pressure and pain result.

MSM can restore flexibility and permeability to cell walls, allowing fluids to pass through the tissues more easily. This helps equalise pressure and reduce or even eliminate the cause of pain resulting from inflammation.

NutriFlex™ MSM

Potent anti-parasitic

MSM has amazing anti-parasitic properties and offers protection against Giardia, roundworms and other intestinal worms.

MSM blocks parasites by competing for receptor sites on the mucous membrane of the intestines. When parasites cannot attach themselves, they are simply flushed out of the system.
