MSM / DMSO2
Originally brought to prominence by Dr. Stanley Jacob, MSM is a relatively new dietary supplement form of sulfur that is found in our living tissues. MSM supports healthy connective tissues like tendons, ligaments, and muscle. Approximately half of the total body sulfur is concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones. One of the most significant uses of MSM as a supplement is its demonstrated ability to relieve joint and muscle discomfort.
Boswellia Serrata is an herb that has a long tradition of use, especially in India (Ayurvedic remedies). This plant is native to Africa and Asia. The part of the plant that is used is the resin from the bark. The boswellic acids in this bark resin are thought to be responsible for the herb's beneficial properties. Boswellic acids are believed to support healthy connective tissue, blood supply to the joints, and healthy blood vessels.
