MSM corresponds to Methyl-Sulfenil-Methane and represents inorganic sulfur in its natural form, that is, as we find it in the sea, on the ground and in the atmosphere. Its presence in the human body is fundamental, since it represents the basis for the construction of the most important biomolecules, such as enzymes, amino acids, hormones, and takes part in the most essential metabolic processes of cells. Therefore, there are many functions, and among these, the anti-inflammatory effect, thanks to which the body manages to effectively repair damaged cells and tissues. All of this makes MSM a valid support against joint pain, tendonitis, inflammation of the mucosa or in problems of the intervertebral disc and, generally, in the presence of pathologies of the musculoskeletal system. MSM is also used in sports: athletes often suffer from stiffness and pain in the ligaments, muscles or joints; constant administration helps in these contexts. Recent studies on men indicate that organic MSM levels tend to decrease with age, probably due to the incipient metabolic slowdown. Therefore, a correct supplementation is necessary, especially in advanced age.
Flax seed oil represents an extremely rich source of essential fatty acids, useful in the prevention of many pathologies, of very old use and famous for its multiple properties. Its chemical composition, around 50-60% in essential Omega-3 fatty acid, also called linolenic or alpha-linolenic acid; 18-20% in omega-6 acid, called linoleic acid and around 12-14% in saturated fatty acids, such as palmitic and stearic. Its beneficial effects are due to a very broad spectrum of action and it is also used as an adjunct in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
The Devil's Claw is a creeping plant native to Namibia and has been used for years as a bitter-tonic, as an antipyretic for feverish states in digestive disorders; It is in fact famous for its hypocholesterolemic properties. Its active principles, harpagosides, of a hyidoidic nature, are responsible for the beneficial effects of the plant.
The first investigations developed by Professor Zorn, from the Friedrich-Schiller Institute in Jena, have given light to the anti-arthritic properties of the Devil's Claw root.
The strong anti-inflammatory effect is mainly due to a synergistic and contemporary action of more active metabolites present in the phytocomplex. This effect is obtained thanks to ß-sitosterol, which inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins, which are responsible for the inflammatory appearance. The hyridoids present, on the contrary, interfere with the permeability of the cell membrane towards ions and the harpagoside acts, finally, as an analgesic.
