MSM Shows Hair, Nail Improvement Compared to Placebo
GREENVILLE, Pa.--In a company-sponsored, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study, 21 subjects taking biologically active sulfur (methyl-sulfonyl-methane, or MSM) increased hair growth compared to the placebo group. In addition, 30 percent of the subjects reported improved hair shine, while none in the placebo group did. In a simultaneous double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot trial, 50 percent of the 11 participants using MSM reported increased nail length and thickness, compared to the placebo group. Both studies were conducted by Ronald Lawrence, who stated that hair and nail health showed such significant improvement at six weeks, "the results would have been even better" if the trials had been extended to eight to 16 weeks. The studies were sponsored by the Carolwood Corp., which also supplied the product, Lignisul MSM. For more on these findings, visit www.msm.com or Booth #1620-1622 at SupplySide East.
