MSM brings relief to arthritis sufferers not by dulling the nerves so that pain cannot be felt, but by mending some of the damage that causes arthritic pain. The two main forms of arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Both conditions cause pain, stiffness, and, sometimes complete deformation of the joint. Osteoarthritis usually effects one joint at a time, gradually destroying the cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis, attacks the whole body at once and is accompanied by swelling. The conventional treatment for arthritis is nonsteroidal anti-flammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or naprosyn, and only provide temporary relief. Sometimes these drugs can cause unpleasant side effects and can cause stomach upset or stomach bleeding. Studies have shown that taking glucosamine, a sulfur dependent compound, which plays an important role in the formation of ligaments, tendons, and other membranes, is more effective in the treatment of arthritis. So taking MSM supplements with glucosamine can enhance the health benefits of glucosamine.
