MSM – Methyl Sulfonyl Methane
The abbreviation MSM refers to the sulfur compound methyl sulfonyl methane, which is an essential element. Sulfur is found in enzymes and in many amino acids, some of which have antioxidant effects and fight free radials. Furthermore, the MSM is important both for the connective tissue of the dog and for the articular cartilage. The methyl sulfonyl methane supports the maintenance of cartilage mass and promotes optimal flexibility. In addition, MSM has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects, which play a particularly important role in the case of arthrosis. If the dog’s body is undersupplied with sulfur, not only the joints can be affected, negative effects on the immune system have also been found.
How can there be an undersupply of MSM?
Probably the most common cause of an undersupply of the sulfur compound MSM in the dog’s body is an unbalanced diet with industrial feed. MSM cannot be produced by the dog’s body itself and therefore dogs have to ingest it regularly with their food. Since many ready-to-eat dog foods (industrial foods) unfortunately have a low concentration of methylsulfonylmethane, a sulfur deficiency can occur. In most cases, however, a dog owner only notices an MSM deficiency when his dog shows the first signs of a degenerative condition of the joints. For this reason, every dog owner should always ensure that their dog is adequately supplied with the sulfur compound.
MSM (not only) for the dog joints
Optimally functioning joint cartilage is absolutely essential for joint health in dogs and this can only be guaranteed if the joint cartilage is supplied with all the important joint nutrients. Among these joint nutrients, methylsulfonylmethane is particularly important because the sulfur as a component of the synovial fluid ensures that all other joint nutrients, such as glucosamine, reach the cartilage cells and can optimally develop their effect there. A fundamental property of sulfur is also that it makes the cell walls permeable so that an active fluid exchange can take place between the cartilage cells and the surrounding tissue. This is the only way for the other joint nutrients to reach the inside of the dog’s cartilage cells in an ideal concentration. MSM also has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, which are particularly useful in osteoarthritis / arthritis.
MSM in cancer
Studies by the University Glocal Campu Seoul also show that taking MSM in cancer can slow down the growth of cancer cells. MSM oxygenates the blood and tissues. Cancer cells feel uncomfortable in an oxygen-rich environment, so that the cell division rate of the cancer cells can be significantly reduced. The study is convincing, so that the intake of MSM is recommended as an adjunct to cancer therapy.
DOG FIT by PreThis® JOINTS
If a dog is already suffering from joint problems that are associated with pain and restrict the dog’s agility, the MSM sulfur as an anti-inflammatory can help to alleviate it. Long-term studies (Assessment of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) on the development of osteoarthritis (OA): An animal study) have shown that sulfur has very good anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects in the dog’s body in the case of joint diseases. A pain-free joint can be moved again, synovial fluid is produced independently again and the recovery of the joint can be promoted with DOG FIT by PreThis® JOINTS.
MSM is in high concentration together with the equally important joint nutrients glucosamine, collagen, devil’s claw and frankincense in DOG FIT by PreThis® JOINTS included. The joint compound is available for different dog weights. We also always recommend using a combination preparation, as the nutrients support each other and can thus ensure that the joints are fully supplied. The feed supplement is often recommended by veterinarians, alternative animal practitioners, dog schools and, of course, by satisfied dog owners.
