As MSM Organic Sulfur (scientifically known as methylsulfonylmethane) continues to gain more and more popularity for the great health benefits it provides, potential customers continue to contact us to ask about potential side effects.
We have many customers with diverse backgrounds and lifestyles. Fortunately, our MSM Organic Sulfur is very pure and manufactured under strict guidelines allowing it to be consumed by all these users. Our product is gluten-free, allergen-free (including shellfish), vegan safe, kosher and halal, non-GMO derived, and Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In addition to health benefits being well-documented and repeatedly studied, the lack of side effects makes MSM Organic Sulfur very safe for consumption by both humans and animals. At this time, there is no known interactions between this product and pharmaceuticals, herbs, vitamins or minerals.
Importantly, there has been no identified toxicity, even with the ingestion of MSM Organic Sulfur of up to 30 grams per day (about 15 teaspoons). This is obviously an obscene number since most studies have been completed with users taking around 6 grams per day (5 times less). This lack of toxicity is something medications like acetaminophen and ibuprofen can't say due to their serious side effects with overdosage.
Despite being free of reported allergic reactions, new users may experience one of the extremely rare and minor side effects such as loose stools, upset stomach, or skin rashes. These conditions are reported to have disappeared immediately upon stopping or varying supplementation dosage. Rest assured, many users utilize very high dosages to reap the benefits of supplementation, without adverse affects.
We have had customers specifically ask if supplementation has any known effect on insulin or blood sugar. While our body's sulfur content is an important piece for amino acid and hormone creation, the developmental and regulatory pathways are extremely complex and it does not appear to influence one or the other. In addition, no medical literature has been published to demonstrate MSM Organic Sulfur influences these effects.
Ultimately, MSM Organic Sulfur supplementation is very safe with minimal and minor side effects. However, the purity of your MSM Organic Sulfur supplement matters! As long as you select a trusted, high purity product, you too can enjoy the many benefits of MSM Organic Sulfur!
