What Is Methylsulfonylmethane?

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM for short) is a type of organic sulfur compound that occurs regularly in nature. You can find it under various other names: methyl sulfone, sulfonylbismethane, dimethyl sulfone, crystalline dimethyl sulfoxide, or organic sulfur. But for the purposes of this ingredient profile, let’s stick with MSM.

MSM can be consumed with supplements or consumed by eating specific foods such as various fruits, vegetables, wine, tea, coffee, and dairy.1

In the 1980s, Dr. Herschler obtained a utility patent to use MSM as a skin smoother and softener. He also began researching MSM’s potential ability to help promote feelings of calm, and help support healthy energy and circulation.4
