Varför Du Behöver MSM vid Smärta & Återhämtning

Why You Need MSM in Pain & Recovery

Have you ever woken up the day after a workout with aches all over your body? While this is usually considered a sign of a good workout, it is also a sign that the body has suffered a significant amount of muscle damage. It may sound bad, but this microscopic form of damage is actually what allows the body to rebuild itself stronger, faster and more prepared for the stress of exercise in the future.

If you regularly subject your body to this type of stress, it is of course a good idea to take a supplement to help the body cope with the strain. Then try a food supplement that can help you manage your recovery. And try MSM in particular!

What is MSM good for?
MSM as a vitamin is good for many things, mainly because it has significant anti-inflammatory effects. This makes MSM beneficial for many conditions, including allergies, skin problems, pain relief, and all inflammation-related problems.

Because exercise itself creates stress on the body, as well as the need to repair and rebuild, MSM may be particularly beneficial for athletes or anyone who participates in regular physical activity. But why does MSM stand out among some of the best supplements for exercise recovery and pain? Let's discuss!

Benefits of MSM
Inflammation and oxidation are two chemical processes that underlie many chronic health conditions. So naturally, any nutrient that helps mediate these processes can be genuinely beneficial to human health. When it comes to exercise, we can use the power of MSM to encourage healthy recovery in several ways.

Relief of joint and muscle pain
A good way to overcome the muscle and body pains - whether they are exercise-related or not - is MSM. That's right, if you're looking for pain relief, MSM may be the nutrient for you! In fact, studies have seen some success with pain relief and mobility in patients with osteoarthritis. One of the main contributing factors to this effect is believed to be the anti-inflammatory properties that MSM provides, although research is still needed to determine the full effects of MSM supplementation for pain relief.

Increased antioxidant status (glutathione)
The anti-inflammatory powers of MSM are undeniable, but did you know that MSM also improves antioxidant status? If you have no idea what that means, antioxidant status refers to the body's ability to deal with oxidation. The reason this is so important is that when the body cannot deal with oxidants, they can cause cell damage that leads to disease.

So what does this have to do with the MSM? It is excellent for improving antioxidant status as it has been shown to increase glutathione levels - one of the body's most important antioxidants. While MSM itself is not an antioxidant, the fact that it helps replenish an important antioxidant means that this nutrient is as powerful for wellness as they come!

Improved recovery
The combination of anti-oxidation and anti-inflammation is a combination perfectly adapted to recovery. Since stress of any kind on the body, including exercise, increases oxidation and inflammation, any nutrient that can help combat these processes will ultimately aid in recovery. So if you're recovering from exercise, an injury, or trying to overcome an inflammation-related condition, MSM is a nutrient to consider!
