For those of us who routinely use MSM Organic Sulfur, the bitterness is something that we've been able to overcome and accept as simply a part of the process to reap the benefits of supplementation.
However, often times new users are unaccustomed to the bitter taste first experienced when starting MSM Organic Sulfur supplementation. Ultimately, many users will persevere and continue usage as a routine part of their day. There are, however, some users that just can't get over the flavor. For that reason, we'd like to share some of the common methods our customers use to mask the bitterness.
Outside of our starting recommendations, the most commonly used method is to simply mix our MSM Organic Sulfur product with citrus fruit juice such as orange, lemon, grapefruit, or lime juice (to name a few). Others recommend coffee, honey, or milk as well. One mixture that seems to also work well is simply adding a pinch of salt into combination. A final attempt would include soda, although we don't recommend large quantities of soda at anytime of the day.
Other customers recommend varying the amount of water during the mixing process. Some like a small amount to allow for quick swallowing, yet others prefer large amounts in an attempt to dilute the bitterness.
We do not recommend ever mixing this product with alcoholic beverages.
Our most common recommendation to users is to experiment with multiple intake methods to find what works best for them. After all, every individual is different in their size, tastes, and so much more. It should be noted, however, that usually customers are quickly able to develop a tolerance for the bitterness of this product. Especially after noticing the benefits of supplementation.
One final recommendation would be to attempt to swish the MSM Organic Sulfur mixture around your mouth before swallowing. This can increase sublingual absorption, or direct diffusion into the blood vessels below the tongue.
Although MSM can sometimes taste bitter, the health benefits of sulfur are impressive and well worth attempting some of the above recommendations for masking any bitterness you may taste.
Can you put the crystals in a capsule and swallow? I want to be vigil in taking it but can’t handle or overcome the bitter taste
Just getting started with my 80 yr. old husband. Will keep you posted.
We encourage all of our customers to find the right trick for them. Please let us know how the V8 mixer with lemon works out!
We wish you all the best on your continued health and wellness journey!
Might v8 veggie juice with a squeeze of lemon be a good mixer for the msm. ?? I am going to try that.
A complete and healthy diet including appropriate amounts of Vitamin C and MSM Organic Sulfur is important to maximize hair health. Sulfur is a foundation of the building blocks for hair, skin, and nails. Therefore, it stands to reason, that a diet that includes these items may improve the outcomes you’re looking for. In terms of specific published research, we are unaware of studies looking into this specific combination and the outcome of hair growth.
I heard that combining organic sulfur crystals and powdered a sorbic acid AKA vitamin c will facilitate the growth of hair on your head and I guess other places too. Is this true?
Thank you for your comments and questions on our blog. We are only aware of one study involving Vitamin C and MSM and it was performed on horses. The results of that study suggested that the addition of vitamin C may help to reduce oxidative stress in jumping activities for horses. This is far from a strong correlation or causation effect so we tend to just say that the evidence isn’t strong enough at this time for the combination of vitamin C and MSM. That being said, there is some good evidence for both individually, so it stands to reason that there may be some good from combining the two. In regards to your question about children using MSM, this too, has not been studied in detail. MSM is safe for human adults, even in high doses. However, research institutions tend to frown on research studies involving pregnant women and young children. For that reason, it’s very difficult for researchers to get approval from review boards to even perform those studies. For that reason, to the best of our knowledge, MSM supplementation has not been studied on children.
I just started taking MSM. It was hard for me to swallow it because of the bitter taste so I started adding a piece of lemon in my water 🍋and it tasted much better. I was reading that the MSM is better absorbed with Vitamin C . Is it true?
Can children take MSM? Lets say from 3 years and up? I heard that it can relieves constipation ?
Have been taking MSM for awhile now and have had great results. I find mixing the crystals with Kifir is a great way to take mine twice a day. Get probiotic while I’m at it!
That’s a loaded question for sure! The easiest answer is that they can all be good, but it depends on the purity. Ultimately all of the terms that you’ve provided are used in different parts of the country to describe similar items. At the end of the day, what you want to know is what’s the purity of the product? Ours is 99.9% pure and that’s as clean as it comes. The purification process helps to ensure that the final product is top notch. You’ll want to look for products that have undergone purification via distillation.
Thanks for your question!
whats better ; CHRYSTALS, FLAKES OR GRANUALS?
