MSM (Methylsufonylmethane): What runners should know about MSM
MSM enables the creation of collagen that helps keep runner knees and joints healthy.
MSM (METHYLSUFONYLMETHANE) SOURCE:
MSM is available in small amounts in some fruit, tea, coffee, and milk. The majority of MSM present in the body comes from supplementation. As shown below, MSM is acts to provide an alternate pathway to the production collagen from essential and non-essential amino acids.
MSM FUNCTION IN THE BODY:
MSM (Methylsufonlymethaine) is a precursor to the formation of collagen. Collagen along with a protein-matrix enabled by glucosamine are the building blocks of cartilage --- which ultimately form a protective layer that helps keep joints healthy and strong.
HOW MSM WORKS:
The amino acid cysteine is a precursor molecule in the formation of collagen. Cysteine is a semi-essential amino acid because it is synthesized by the body either from the essential amino acid methionine -or- from sulfur donating molecules such as MSM.
WHY MSM MATTERS FOR RUNNERS:
As you age, your body naturally produces less collagen. This is especially relevant for runners who rely on healthy joints and cartilage for their activity. Supplementing with MSM offers another pathway for the body to produce the necessary collagen to help keep runner knees and joints healthy and strong.
