MSM powder improves the hair structure and accelerates hair growthMonday 3 November 2014
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a form of organic sulfur, which acts as a building block for the protein of the hair (Keratin). It occurs naturally in fresh, unprocessed and uncooked foods, especially raw fish and meat. When cooking food, a lot of MSM is lost due to heating and other processes, so the amount of MSM you get through food is often inadequate. MSM, as 'organic sulfur', is much easier to absorb by our body than the mineral sulfur.
Research shows that it helps to make hair thicker and it also ensures more shine. MSM also increases the rate of growth of the hair.
These effects on hair growth were first contested as having "never been proven" or "poorly researched", but they have now been confirmed in (double blind) research by the Oregon Health Sciences University.
MSM is especially known as a painkiller without side effects. This function has been studied for over 20 years. Adverse effects have not been registered, because it concerns a natural substance. At The Hair Growth Specialist, pure MSM powder is sold in convenient resealable pouches of 500 grams.
