Why should you use MSM for your dog? MSM has been said to be a joint healer, a cell rejuvinator and an antioxidant. MSM contains natural sulfur, a mineral needed to maintain good joint, skin, coat and nail health in your dog. Sulfur is also a component of insulin, the hormone that regulates the use of glucose by cells for energy. Because MSM contains sulfur, it is an important supplement for maintaining or improving your pets overall health.
Benefits of MSM include:
- Anti-Inflammatory properties.
- Pain relieving properties.
- Helps strengthen connective tissue.
- Regulates the flow of nutrients into cells and toxins out of cells.
Sulfur can be found in a variety of foods, such as meat, eggs, cheese, kelp, raw fruits, vegetables, and seeds. Most commercial dog foods contain a high amount of carbohydrates, which does not provide enough sulfur to promote or maintain good overall health. Check with your vet before adding any supplements to your dog’s diet and discuss the advantages of adding supplements such as Glucosamine / Chondroitin / MSM.
