What have hayfever and arthritis got in common?
Reading up on hayfever I have come across recommendations for taking MSM. Methylsulfonylmethane, a white crystalline powder that dissolves easily in water. Apparently it is very effective as an antihistamine and an antioxidant. In combination with Vitamin C, it can benefit most hayfever sufferers, but that’s not all, it is also has anti-parasitic properties.
So what has this got to do with arthritis? The list of beneficial properties of MSM continue to include therapeutic uses as a painkiller, an anti-inflammatory and as a treatment for scars and burns!
Arthritis in pets
I’ve even heard of this winning combination of Vitamin C with MSM being effective for pets with arthritis as an effective pain relief, without the side effects of the corticosteriods or over-the-counter non-steriodal anti-inflammatory medications which can affect stomach and liver tissue.
Definitely worth a try – take a look
