Prevents Reverses Skin issues

Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)

One preliminary study showed found that supplementation with 2,600 mg per day of MSM for 30 days reduced symptoms of seasonal allergies, but more and larger studies are needed to determine whether there is any real beneficial effect.

Shingles

Topical DMSO has been proposed as a treatment to relieve pain and inflammation of shingles (herpes zoster). Some evidence suggests it may lessen the number of lesions and decrease inflammation, but more studies are needed.

Interstitial Cystitis

Although research is limited, the FDA has approved DMSO to treat interstitial cystitis (chronic bladder inflammation that causes frequent and nighttime urination, as well as pain). When DMSO is used to treat interstitial cystitis, a physician inserts a liquid solution of DMSO directly into the bladder. General anesthesia may be required because the procedure can be painful and may cause bladder spasms.

Amyloidosis

Several case reports suggest that DMSO, applied in creams or taken by mouth, may help treat amyloidosis (a condition where excess protein builds up in the body's organs, damaging them). However, because the condition is rare, no scientific studies have examined whether or not DMSO has any benefit. Take DMSO (or apply it in creams) only with your doctor's supervision.




Dietary Sources:

MSM is found in protein-rich foods such as eggs, meat, poultry, fish, and legumes. Other good sources include garlic, onions, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, kale, and wheat germ.

Available Forms:

Sulfur supplements are available in two main forms -- dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM).

For healthy people who eat a well-balanced diet, supplemental sulfur is generally not necessary. People who follow a vegan diet, however, may be at risk for sulfur deficiency.

Ointments, creams, lotions, and dusting powders containing sulfur are available to treat skin rashes. Natural sulfur baths (the kind usually found at hot springs) may help ease pain associated with arthritis.Abstract:

Health effects of sulphur

This study sought to investigate the effect of 3-week therapy with sulphur baths on antioxidative defence systems, peroxide concentrations, and lipid levels in patients with degenerative osteoarthritis. After randomisation, one group of patients (n = 19) received sulphur baths during their stay at a health resort (sulphur group) whereas the other patient group served as controls (n = 19, control group). Total cholesterol levels, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), triglycerides and the antioxidative status, glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities, and peroxide concentration as an oxidative stress parameter, were evaluated at the start and end of therapy. A non-significant decline in peroxide concentrations and significant lower SOD activities were detected in the sulphur group at the end of the therapy. Until the end of therapy, total cholesterol levels changed differentially in the sulphur group (from 229.11 34.47 mg/dl to 217.46 40.45 mg/dl) and in the control group (from 197.63 34.66 mg/dl to 207.95 33.02 mg/dl). A similar significant group difference was found for LDL, with a 5.9% reduction in the sulphur group and a 6.1% increase in the control group. Triglyceride concentrations were non-significantly reduced in both groups after 3 weeks at the health resort (sulphur group 11.2%, control group 20.2%).
