NATROL MSM & Glucosamine is a dietary supplement that contains glucosamine and MSM (an organic sulphur compound).
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) – organic sulphur – until recently it was a relatively unknown natural compound. Thanks to its properties, it is now becoming a one of the most popular supplements in prevention and treatment. It occurs naturally in fresh vegetables, fruits, tea, cereals and fresh cow milk. Unfortunately, the current production and preservation processes destroy this compound, so that we are not able to get it without supplementation.
Organic sulphur (MSM) has multidirectional preventative and therapeutic properties. It also has detoxicating, anabolic and regenerating properties. It plays an important role in the forming of proteins by the human body system. It is essential for healthy hair and strong nails. Next to vitamin C, lysine and proline, sulphur is an essential mineral in collagen synthesis.
MSM improves the transportation and the delivery of numerous nutritional substance to and from the cells. It stimulates the healing if damaged skin, for example after surgery or burning. It strengthens weak cells and makes cell walls more elastic.
MSM is believed to be an irreplaceable amplifier of other vitamins and nutritional agents. The examples are vitamins A, C, D, E, coenzyme Q10, all B-vitamins, amino acids, selenium, calcium, magnesium and many others. It also works in reverse. The best sulphur amplifier will be vitamin C in form of sodium ascorbate or L-ascorbic acid. MSM promotes the cellular uptake of nutritional agents and extends their actions in the body system.
The implications of the lack of sulphur are muscles are joints stiffness, skin folds, reduction of flexibility of lungs and vessels tissues.
The research carried out by Johanna Budwig demonstrated that the amino acids, which contain sulphur, in cell membranes resonate with double fatty acids bonds. It results in the release of electrons. The energy is used to the heart beating, nerves stimulations and muscles contraction.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar which naturally occurs in our body system. It is a substance which regenerates joints and rebuilds a new, healthy cartilage. It takes part in the synthesis of proteoglycans (substances which form the joint cartilage) which improve or even regenerate affected joints.
Although there are two forms of glucosamine in our body system, we can get it from four different sources – glucosamine hydrochloride, glucosamine hydroiodide, N-acetylglucosamine and very common glucosamine sulfate. Natural sources of glucosamine are crayfishes, shrimps and oysters.
The greatest therapeutic value has the glucosamine sulfate because it is characterized by high bioavailability (89% of an active substance reaches the blood stream). Glucosamine should be applied in the periods of strong physical effort, increased joints burden (also caused by the obesity) and by intense aging process.
The production of glucosamine in the body system declines with age and then we are exposed to side effects caused by its lack (especially the athletes). The lack of glucosamine leads to disorders in joints functions.
Glucosamine prevents us from injuries as well as it protects, strengthens and regenerates joints. It is also used in posttraumatic states, in osteoporosis prevention, by the diet poor in calcium, among endurance athletes (as their joints are especially exposed to injuries and degeneration).
To sum it all up, NATROL MSM & Glucosamine contains big doses of MSM and glucosamine which have great effects on head skin, nails and joints. The supplement is recommended for athletes, who want to protect their cartilage from burden, and for people who want to alleviate the inevitable aging process.
For the best effects, glucosamine and MSM should be applied regularly. In case of glucosamine, its full action could be noticed after 3 or even after 6 months of regular applying. To strengthen the supplement function, the additional supplementation with vitamin C, calcium and vitamin K2 (especially in form of MK7) is recommended.
To get the greatest benefit from the use of the product, take it regularly. Glucosamine exerts its action only after 3-6 months of regular use. To increase bioavailability, you can combine it with vitamin C, calcium or vitamin K2.

Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.
Chlorine (chemical element from the group of halogens) - in the natural form of gas it is poisonous and water-soluble (until recently used as a disinfectant in the water supply system, now replaced by fluorination). It is chemically active element. It is used in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium (KCl). It participates in the process of digestion and maintains acid-base balance in the body, removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver (antitoxin). Natural source of chlorine for the body is salt and bladderwrack.
Chlorine deficiency can occur due to excessive sweating, vomiting, causing digestive tract problems. It also causes loss of hair and teeth.
Excess chlorine, for example. Drink excessive amounts of chlorinated water, destroys bacterial flora and vitamin E.
Dosage: Daily dose should not exceed 15 grams.
