The Benefits of MSM + Vitamin C for Immune Health

The Benefits of MSM + Vitamin C for Immune Health

Everyday life can stretch the resources we have to keep health problems at bay. Sometimes, our bodies will tell us that they need a helping hand. There are some natural remedies available to give us the lift we need and promote better health.

    

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) and vitamin C can potentially support immune function through several mechanisms and get you back on track:

  1. Antioxidant Activity: Both MSM and vitamin C exhibit antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals in the body, which can contribute to oxidative stress and compromise immune function. By reducing oxidative stress, they may support a healthier immune system.*

  2. Collagen Synthesis: Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis, a protein crucial for maintaining the integrity of skin and mucous membranes. This barrier function is a first line of defense against pathogens, helping to prevent infections. MSM, by contributing sulfur, plays a role in collagen formation, indirectly supporting immune function.*

  3. Inflammatory Response: MSM is known for supporting a healthy inflammatory response. Chronic inflammation can weaken the immune system, and MSM's ability to balance inflammation may contribute to overall immune health.*

  4. Glutathione Production: MSM is thought to enhance the production of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant and essential component of the immune system. Glutathione helps the immune system function optimally by supporting the activity of immune cells.*

  5. Immune Cell Activity: Both MSM and vitamin C may influence the activity of immune cells. Vitamin C is involved in the function of various immune cells, including white blood cells, and MSM's inflammation modulating effects may positively impact immune cell activity.*
