Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM®) is a natural food found in most plants and in the milk of
all mammals. MSM is one of nature’s best sources of dietary sulfur, an important mineral in the
synthesis of vitamins (biotin and thiamin), amino acids (methionine and cysteine), and chondroitin sulfates
(compounds that assist joint lubrication).
MSM is driven out of all foods, even with moderate processing. At low levels of ingestion
MSM functions as a normal dietary ingredient. At higher levels it functions as a
pharmaceutically active agent which can be used safely and effectively for a variety of purposes. The body
uses MSM to create healthy new cells. Vitamins and amino acids work with MSM
during this process. Without proper levels of MSM the body is unable to build good healthy cells.
Veterinarians commonly prescribe MSM for dogs to help promote healthy skin, fur, and nails and to help
proper organ and immune system function. It is also commonly prescribed
to dogs for Panosteitis
(bone inflammation), cruciate and ligament problems, hip and elbow dysplasia
and to treat stomach ulcers.
There are a number of methylsulfonylmethane products on the market that are not fit to bear the
MSM trademark. The purification of MSM from natural sources is an exacting process
that requires the utmost care and precision. Toxins and impurities are a constant danger. In addition to quality and
purity testing, ErroPet OptiMSM® is extensively tested by an independent industry laboratory for both
microbiological and heavy metals contamination. ErroPet OptiMSM® is the finest available, pure and licensed
American made MSM.
ErroPet MSM is pure, distilled OptiMSM®, free of by-products and impurities, made
at a dedicated MSM facility in the United States at a NNFA GMP* certified MSM
plant, licensed in compliance with the R.J. Herschler worldwide patents.
