For the normal function of cartilage and bones
Our musculoskeletal system, with its joints, cartilages, tendons and ligaments, is challenged every day. A healthy musculoskeletal system is a prerequisite for quality of life at any age. Sufficient gentle exercise and healthy nutrition can contribute to this. Vitamin C supports normal collagen formation for normal cartilage and bone function.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is organic sulfur
MSM is the abbreviation for "methylsulfonylmethane" containing organically bound sulfur. With sulfur we often associate an unpleasant odor or it is even harmful to our health. However, many people do not know that sulfur is present in virtually every cell in our body!
Thermal sulfur baths, on the other hand, are usually more familiar to us than good health - and have been for centuries.
Sulfur plays an essential role in our body and is actually the third most abundant mineral in the human body. Especially large amounts are stored in the skin, muscles and bones.
The mineral is a building material for the production of, for example, enzymes, hormones or amino acids. "Sulfur bridges" - the bond between two sulfur particles - are involved in defining the structure of both enzymes and proteins.
So, among other things sulfur-containing amino acids are needed to build the body's own protein (protein).
In which foods is MSM included?
Small amounts of MSM are naturally present in protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, cheese or eggs, as well as nuts, legumes or peppers. In plant foods, sulfur is also included, but only in smaller quantities.
When cooking food by heating, the sulfur contained is unfortunately usually lost.
