A 2013 study evaluated the effects of a single dose of MSM Organic Sulfur on several tests that are used to measure oxidative stress (jargon for the development of free radicals and the ability of the human body to utilize antioxidants to counter their harmful effects).
This study started by drawing participants blood before drinking either Pure MSM Organic Sulfur Crystals mixed in water, or purely water as a placebo. Subjects then ran for 45 minutes. To purposefully increase oxidative stress, the final speed of the treadmill was increased every 2 minutes until exhaustion. Blood tests were again performed at 2 and 24 hours post exercise.
The results were pretty outstanding. A single dose of oral supplementation with MSM Organic Sulfur Crystals seemed to increase the total anti-oxidant capacity of the body as seen by improvements in several of the blood results. The authors seem to suggest that MSM Organic Sulfur should be utilized by those who are active to decrease prolonged storage of damaging free radicals.
These results add to the ever-mounting evidence of the benefit of MSM Organic Sulfur to the human body.
