MSM for tightening saggy skin? In the past I have taken MSM because it’s good for joint problems and is included in my Glucosamine tablet. Before taking it, I did a little research on it and I found it’s good for your hair, skin and nails. Okay, bonus. But now I’m researching and finding out it’s also good for your saggy skin! Great news for so many who are on the weight loss train.
What exactly is MSM? MSM (methyl-sufonyl-methane) is more of a food than a supplement. It’s a naturally occurring sulfur compound found in all plants, soils, fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, eggs, meats and milk. It is organic sulfur, a naturally occurring compound in the human body. It’s found in every cell in the body, and is structurally and functionally important to 150 compounds, including hormones, enzymes, antibodies and antioxidants. Our bodies use MSM to create new healthy cells so it’s important that we have it in our system. MSM is found in our typical diet, but as foods are processed, MSM is destroyed. Another reason to not eat processed foods! So taking MSM is like getting back to a healthy raw foods diet.
