Benefits of Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) & CBD
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a chemical found in green plants, animals, and humans. MSM is a popular supplement with a wide variety of uses. MSM is rich in organic Sulphur, an important ‘building block’ for healthy bones and joints, and it may be useful for your immune system. Laboratory studies have found that MSM has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Sulfur, which is a major component of MSM, plays an important role in making collagen and glucosamine, both of which are vital for healthy bones and joints, and in the production of immunoglobulins, which help your immune system (1). MSM is considered safe and is generally well tolerated with minimal side effects.
Alternately, CBD stands for cannabidiol, a chemical compound. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it is not psychoactive, meaning it will not make you sedated or altered in any way. Hemp has a higher percentage of CBD and very low levels of THC in comparison.
It has been shown to possibly benefit those with joint degeneration, a common cause of pain in the knees, back, hands and hips. Joint degeneration can negatively impact your quality of life by limiting your movement and mobility. Studies have shown that MSM significantly reduces inflammation in your body. It also inhibits the breakdown of cartilage, a flexible tissue that protects the ends of your bones in joints (2). MSM supplements also may help reduce pain and stiffness. They may also help improve physical function.
CBD and your immune system
Your immune system is your specialized network of tissues, cells, and organs that protects your body against disease and illness and can be weakened by things like stress, diet, and sleep (4). MSM may be effective in reducing oxidative stress and inflammation that can weaken immunity. Since it’s effective in reducing levels of inflammatory compounds like IL-6 and TNF-ɑ, MSM may reduce stress on your immune system. It also plays a part in the creation of glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant and may help increase levels of this compound. Having adequate levels of glutathione is crucial for the overall health and function of your immune system. Our topical salve combines the powerhouses of MSM and CBD to give you powerful healing by reducing inflammation and alleviating pain.
