MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) Powder
How to Use MSM Powder
The best way to take MSM powder is simply by adding it to water (usually one glass of water for one serving)
For treating osteoarthritis the recommended starting dose is 1gr 2-3 times daily and gradually you can increase to 3-6 grams daily.
It can also be given to dogs to help reduce joint pain, injuries and inflammation. The recommended “therapeutic dosage” for dogs is about 50 to 100 mg MSM per 10 pounds of body weight.
MSM seems to be well-tolerated, since it’s completely natural and already found in the human body.
That being said, it is capable of causing mild side effects for some people, including indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea, and skin and eye irritation. It’s also not suitable for people taking blood-thinner medications, due to potential side effects affecting the heart and cardiovascular system that may occur.
If you’re pregnant, you’ll want to speak with a doctor before taking it regularly.
