Dieters with joint and inflammation problems have enough trouble walking from one room to the next or through the local grocery store, let alone walking for one to two miles a day as part of a weight loss exercise plan. Glucosamine and chondroitin are over the counter supplements marketed for anti-inflammation. Typically, MSM is packaged with these supplements for additional anti-inflammation support. With the help of MSM, dieters with painful joints may be able to move better and complete exercise to achieve weight loss goals.
Clinical research has also been complete linking MSM to osteoarthritis relief. The study was extremely small with only 168 participants. While the results were positive, larger studies need to be completed to support the findings in the clinical community.
Another huge benefit for dieters is the fact that being overweight or obese is considered a constant state of inflammation. The body fights against the extra weight, which often causes unexplained pain. MSM may help fight this pain.
