Spring brings longer days and nicer weather, and many people are motivated to get moving and give themselves a makeover. But some may need a little help to work out the kinks and give their body a lift.

Methylsulfonylmethane  or MSM is an organic sulfur-containing compound used in dietary supplement formulations that provides a variety of research-backed health benefits, including mobility and joint health. The benefits of MSM for joint health stem from its ability to provide basic building blocks for connective tissue, serving as a critical component of healthy cartilage. Due to its role in maintaining healthy connective tissue, MSM also has benefits in the beauty segment for healthy hair, skin, and nails. 

In this webinar, we’ll delve into how MSM helps support the ability to stay active as we age and take a look at current research supporting these benefits. Product developers, innovation managers, marketing specialists and nutrition science managers should tune in to discover how this unique ingredient can have a big impact on the success of  finished products that support active and healthy lifestyles.
