OptiMSM® may help protect from exercise-induced inflammation: Latest study

A new study featuring OptiMSM®, our branded form of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) from Bergstrom Nutrition, Vancouver, WA, was published in the 2016 Volume of the Journal of Sports Medicine titled “The Influence of Methylsulfonylmethane on Inflammation-Associated Cytokine Release before and following Strenuous Exercise.” 


The study points to OptiMSM’s role in mitigating inflammation caused by exercise, consequentially aiding the immune system and possibly enhancing the exercise recovery process. An immune system that isn’t overly taxed is better able to fight infection, whereas a stressed system cannot mount an appropriate response. MSM attenuates tissue inflammation, thereby reducing excessive tissue damage and preventing immune suppression. Click here to read the full article.
