In nature, MSM Organic Sulfur occurs in many foods (think eggs, milk and tomatoes), but in very insignificant amounts; limiting our ability to intake a substantial amount of sulfur naturally. Additionally, research has found that the sulfate reserve in humans is among the smallest of animal species and may be depleted by a low protein diet and intake of acetaminophen (also called Tylenol©). Thus, to achieve the adequate levels of concentrated sulfur needed to increase the likelihood of experiencing enhanced health benefits, MSM Organic Sulfur is produced using commercial methods to create an identical match to that of MSM Organic Sulfur found in nature.
Our MSM Organic Sulfur is manufactured using a chemical synthesis process of reacting two raw materials, dimethyl sulfoxide and hydrogen peroxide. This reaction forms a new molecule: Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM. After reaction, a purification process is needed to remove any impurities and remove the water byproduct. Distillation is the favored process, and the process we use, for producing high purity MSM. During this process, heat is used to separate compounds by their unique boiling points. The distillation of MSM results in a very pure product (99.9% pure MSM Organic Sulfur). This product has been proven to be safe and effective. Learn more about the manufacturing process.
No, our product is gluten-free. Furthermore, it’s also non-GMO, vegan, and non-shellfish derived. It’s also Kosher and Halal certified.
USA sourced material and the manufacturing our final product is performed in the USA.
There have not been any published interactions, but we recommend you ask your primary healthcare provider or pharmacist before use if that is a concern of yours.
We use a quadruple distillation method to attain a 99.9% pure product. This method allows for the highest purity levels.
No, they do not. We prefer to only offer pure products.
Absolutely, we recommend grinding the crystals in a blender or with a mortar and pestle.
We do have customers who use it in their shampoo. Furthermore, we do offer a foot soak with this product in it because people like its effect on skin.
This response is multilayered. The most uncomplicated reason No Boundaries Health and Wellness MSM Organic Sulfur does not have the USDA Organic Seal is because supplements are not certified or approved by the USDA. Supplements, by law, are regulated by the FDA and not the USDA. Our product, however, has achieved the FDA GRAS-designation. Furthermore it is non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, and non-shellfish derived making it allergen-free. However, to dive deeper into the question about the "organic" labeling, one must talk chemistry (deep breath!). In chemistry, any carbon-containing molecule is "organic." In fact, there's a whole division called "Organic Chemistry (and it's a hard subject if you're taking classes)." Our product does contain a carbon molecule and is also a source of biological sulfur, leading it to commonly being called "Organic Sulfur."
Commercially available MSM products are the result of a chemical reaction; they do not come from wood, plants or fossil fuels like oil. It is not possible to withdraw MSM from a tree, plants or fossil fuels. There are some companies who have used such topics as a marketing strategy, but those statements simply aren’t true. You should also question the safety of such products lending to such claims. Our product has been proven to be safe and effective, and you can learn more about how is is made by visiting our manufacturing page.
No. MSM Organic Sulfur is not the mined mineral sulfur. MSM Organic Sulfur is an organosulfur compound (or a molecule that contains sulfur) found in plants, animals, and humans. Our supplement is produced in a FDA regulated laboratory to match the same purity as the compound found in nature. It is commonly used for chronic pain, joint pains like arthritis, skin care, energy production, and many other benefits.
They are equally bioavailable. Our crystals are made in a prilling chamber during manufacturing to allow for ease with handling. When crushed, they turn into a powder. Both will dissolve in water for supplementation.
Most studies recommend up to 6 grams per day in multiple doses. Based on this, and the fact that we know MSM is quickly absorbed, we suggest that individuals divide their supplementation up into multiple, well-spaced doses. Our customers find that early morning and early to mid-afternoon work well. Some individuals have noted increased energy levels, and as a result, interference with a sleep schedule. Due to this, we recommend that individuals avoid taking MSM too close to planned sleeping hours.
As naturally occurring levels of MSM Organic Sulfur are frequently too low, the goal of supplementation is to reach optimum levels within our bodies. Both our powder and capsule products can help with this, depending on personal preference of intake. But, be wary of companies whose capsules don’t contain a pure product like ours.
Often, people choose to dissolve No Boundaries Health and Wellness MSM Organic Sulfur in about 2-4oz of water and drink it quickly due to the bitterness. Others use additives such as lime, juice, salt, coffee, tea, or a larger amount of water.
It can be. We know that some individuals can taste bitterness to a greater extent than others. Some of our customers prefer our capsuled product to avoid the taste if it’s unpleasant to them.
