MSM the Basics
(from MSM the definitive Guide by Stanley W Jacob, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Jeremy Appleton, N.D.)

Methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM) is a naturally occurring Sulfur compound and nutritional component of many foods. It is found in the normal diets of humans and almost all other vertebrates. The proper chemical name for MSM is dimethyl sulfone, or DMSO2. It is the primary, oxidised metabolite of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and it appears to share many of its parent compound’s therapeutic properties.

MSM belongs to a family of compounds that are abundant in the food chains of terrestrial and ocean life. This sulfur-containing nutrient is the stable end product of the methyl-S-methane series of compounds that provide bioavailable sulfur to as many as 85% of all living organisms.(1) These compounds – principally dimethyl sulfide (DMS) – are among the Earths few primary sources for sulfur.

The sulfur cycle begins in the ocean, where algae and phytoplankton release sulfur compounds, called tertiary dimethylsulfonium salts. These salts are transformed to DMS, a highly volatile compound. Oceanic DMS is the major natural source of sulfur to the atmosphere and contributes both to the
tropospheric sulfur burden and to particle formation and growth in the atmosphere.

J.E. Lovelock and colleagues recognised DMS in 1972 as an important component of the Earths sulfur cycle, soon after the discovery of its ubiquity in sea water. Indeed, it was lovelock and colleagues who first provided convincing data supporting the methyl-S-methane series as the earths dominant sulfur cycle. After sulfur dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion, DMS is the second most significant source of sulfur in the atmosphere.

In the presence of ozone and high-energy ultra violet light, DMS in converted into DMSO and MSM, both of which – unlike DMS – are soluble in water. They return to the Earth in rainfall and are subsequently taken into the root systems of plants and concentrated up to one hundred fold.

DMSO and, to a lesser extent, MSM are widely distributed in nature. Both compounds are present in small amounts in selected fruits, vegetables, grains and beverages. Milk is the most abundant known source of dietary MSM, containing approximately 3.3 parts per million (ppm) as tested in 1981.(2) An earlier report indicated levels in milk of 6.1 to 8.2 ppm.(3) MSM is also found in coffee (1.6 ppm), tomatoes (trace to 0.86ppm), tea (0.3 ppm), Swiss chard (0.05 to 0.18 ppm), beer (0.14 ppm), corn (0.0 to 0.11 ppm) and alfalfa (0.07 ppm). Trace quantities of MSM have been detected in asparagus, beets, cabbage, cucumber, oats, apples and raspberries.
