OptiMSM contains 34% of organic sulfur making it a beneficial nutrient for helping to regulate and regenerate healthy cells. Sulfur has an essential role in the production of glutathione — an important antioxidant in the body that is involved with detoxification and supporting a healthy immune system.
Glutathione is important for scavenging free radicals and activating Natural Killer cells that stimulate white blood cell function. A study published in Frontiers of Immunology found that glutathione’s role in producing NK cells help to fight off infections.
Glutathione is highly involved with eliminating toxins from the body. A study published in a Biometals journal found that glutathione helped to inhibit heavy metal toxicity.
With concentrated levels of sulfur, OptiMSM helps to encourage glutathione regulation that is essential to overall health and detoxification, as well as inhibit inflammation and oxidative stress that leads to metabolic dysfunction.
