Do you suffer from seasonal symptoms like a runny or stuffy nose, watery and itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath and more? If so, you're not alone, more than 23 million Americans currently suffer from seasonal allergies.
A research study of people suffering from these very symptoms has concluded that MSM Organic Sulfur can provide meaningful relief! The study looked at relief at 7, 14, 21, and 30 days. After one week of nearly 3 grams MSM Organic Sulfur supplementation, the frequency of upper respiratory signs and symptoms were statistically significant for improvement. By three weeks, lower respiratory symptoms were improved too. Excitingly, these improvements were all maintained throughout the length of the study. Furthermore, the same study showed those using MSM Organic Sulfur had increased energy levels by day 14, and these results also continued throughout the length of the study. Several other studies have displayed the anti-inflammatory effects of MSM Organic Sulfur. Many consider this the reason behind the success of treating allergies as it may suppress the body's histamine response (an allergy causation). The best part of these studies are the extreme safety of MSM Organic Sulfur. There have been minimal side effects noted despite repeated testing.
I have allergies to sulfa drugs—have slowly been adding supplements with natural sulfur. Wondering if there is any information in your studies about those with respiratory issues and allergies to sulfa. My belief is that my allergy is to chemical make up of drug not natural sulfur. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you for your comment and reaching out Joy,
There have been no verifiable cases of an allergic reaction to MSM Organic Sulfur, including through pathways similar to sulfa-drugs. Although both contain sulfur, that is where their similarities end. Sulfa-drugs contain a chemical group called sulfonamide, which generally is the cause of allergic reactions as they metabolize, and specific side chains are released. The allergy-causing compounds bear no resemblance structurally or functionally to MSM Organic Sulfur. Many individuals with allergies to sulfa drugs or sulfites do not experience problems taking MSM Organic Sulfur, because apart from sulfur, MSM Organic Sulfur bears no relation to these substances.
When people say they are “allergic to sulfur”, what they really mean is that they are allergic or sensitive to certain sulfur-containing substances, most notably to sulfa antibiotics (sulfonamides) or to sulfites (preservatives used in wines and some foods), or to foods with a high sulfur content (broccoli or cauliflower).
That being said, people who are allergic to one drug are more likely to be allergic to other substances, regardless of its chemical structure. So, if you have a known allergy to sulfonamides or sulfites, we would encourage you to consult with your primary care provider before taking MSM Organic Sulfur.
Again, thank you for your question! Have a great day!
