5 Fundamental Sulfur (MSM®) tablets provided by
Douglas Laboratories®, each contain 500 mg of
methylsulfonyl-methane (MSM). MSM, a derivative
of DMSO, is a naturally occurring compound of
biologically available sulfur. The essential trace
element molybdenum is added as a cofactor for
normal sulfur metabolism. Fundamental Sulfur also
provides vitamin C, while Fundamental Sulfur II
Sulfur is an indispensable element in human
nutrition. As part of the amino acids methionine and
cysteine, sulfur is required for the structural integrity
and function of almost every protein in the body,
including enzymes, serum proteins, and the keratin of
skin, hair, and nails. Taurine, another sulfurcontaining
amino acid is known for its role in bile
salt synthesis, cell membrane stability, neuronal
excitability and the regulation of osmotic pressure.
Sulfur is also an essential element for the
glycosaminoglycans of connective tissues and
cartilage, and assumes a major role in detoxification
as part of the hepatic sulfur conjugation pathways.
Proper detoxification of xenobiotics, such as phenols,
and many endogenous and foreign food- or air-borne
compounds depends on an adequate supply of
biologically active sulfur.
Dietary MSM serves as a versatile donor of
metabolically active sulfur for the synthesis of
numerous organosulfur compounds and proteins in
the body. As such, MSM helps maintain normal
immune response, lung function, connective tissue
metabolism, and muscle contraction.
MSM occurs naturally in a variety of foods, such as
fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, milk, and fish.
However, MSM is volatile and easily lost during
cooking. MSM is very well absorbed by the
intestinal tract and rapidly distributed within the
Molybdenum is an essential trace element that assists
in the proper metabolism of sulfur. Specifically,
molybdenum is the cofactor of sulfite oxidase, an
enzyme that converts potentially toxic sulfite to
sulfate. This reaction is necessary for the normal
metabolism of the sulfur amino acids.
Fundamental Sulfur may be a useful dietary
supplement for individuals who wish to enhance their
diets with biologically active sulfur, together with
molybdenum and vitamin C. For those sensitive to
ascorbic acid, Fundamental Sulfur II is recommended
(vitamin C free).
