Dosage

Up to 2000mg /day of glucosamine have been used in studies.

For obese individuals up to 20mg of glucosamine per kg of body weight is suggested.

Methylsulfonylmethane is one of the least toxic substances in biology, similar in toxicity to water.

According to research done at the MSM clinic at the Oregon Health Sciences University, long-term use of

MSM at a dose greater than 2 g/day is well tolerated, producing no adverse effects.

 

Potential applications

Osteoarthritis – repair and healing resulting in relief of pain and inflammation, disorders of tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.

MSM’s high sulphur content may also prove helpful in treating similar diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and temporal mandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ).

Other Reported uses for MSM in humans include treatment for conditions such as hyperacidity, detoxification, constipation, musculoskeletal pain, allergies, and for immuno-modulation.

Other scientists are investigating the relationship between MSM and asthma, dermatological problems, periodontal conditions.

 

Known contraindications

At the amount most frequently taken by adults—500 mg three times per day of glucosamine — adverse effects have been limited to mild reversible gastrointestinal side effects.

 

Interactions

Research has raised the possibility that glucosamine could contribute to insulin resistance. This effect might theoretically result from the ability of glucosamine to interfere with an enzyme needed to regulate blood sugar levels. However, available evidence does not suggest that taking glucosamine supplements will trigger or aggravate insulin resistance or high blood sugar.

Those with peptic ulcers and individuals taking diuretic drugs may be more likely to experience

gastrointestinal side effects with glucosamine or MSM.

 

Useful links: Osteoarthritis – multi-phytonutrient complex, flax seed oil, boswellia, green food blend / malic acid (to reduce systemic acidity). Dietary – increase water intake, reduce animal fats, and increase

plant foods. Regular exercise and flexibility movements are beneficial. Achieving appropriate body mass index (BMI) will reduce the risk of OA.

Glucosamine with MSM delivers a high net sulphur yield and thus may offer more potential in immune related arthritic conditions and for gut disorders linked to musculo-skeletal problems.

Note: MSM is the modern name for brimstone. It is a white, slightly bitter tasting crystalline substance which contains 34% elemental sulphur.
