I've been taking msm for months for joint issues and I just noticed something that may be a "con" and I wished I had noticed earlier.

I use the Jarrow brand powder and on the bottle it says that one serving (there's a scoop) is 1000mg. But I just noticed this morning that underneath that in small print it says that per serving there's only 340mg of actual sulfur.

So basically, I thought I was taking 5000mg of sulfur a day...but I was really only getting 1700 mg of actual sulfur (the rest being whatever they use to make up the powder and the anti-caking agent). In reality, I need to take much more in order to get the amount that was recommended to me by my doctor to improve my health.

So ladies, you may want to check your bottles and see how much actual sulfur you're getting per serving.

Thanks for that!  I use Holland & Barrett MSM and I just checked the quantity - it is what it is.

Mine didn't come w/a scooper either.  I just used one of my tsp measuring spoons and leave it in the jar.  I use the NOW brand powder and it claims to be 99.7% MSM.  1/2 tsp = 1800 mg (1.8g) so I take a tsp per day. 
 
I'm not getting the phenomenal growth and I've been taking it since Christmas Eve.  But I know it's in my system b/c my boobs...

I have been taking it daily for about 6 weeks. I currently use the TriMedica brand.
I started with taking random amounts once a day for a week. Then I switched to .5 tsp once a day to .5 tsp twice a day. Now I take 1 tsp twice a day- once morning and once at night.

I don't really measure the length of my hair, but I am going to start. It appears longer, but that could be wishful thinking. My eyelashes are definitely longer. And I appear to be having more body hair, but not facial hair.

I get the vivid dreams. But they seem to be tapering off.
I have noticed nothing in connection with my menstrual cycle.
My breasts are larger/fuller.

Vivid dreams, and some nightmares




Derri-

How many grams are you taking?

Please do tell. I need to know so that I can avoid this side effect.
 

I'm taking the NOW brand of pure MSM
they say half a teaspoon is 1800 mg, so I take a full teaspoon , so 3600 mg
and I slacked off for like a week, so it wasn't even a full month of taking it. 
Thats pretty intense if you ask me 



Thanks! I agree on the bolded

I started taking MSM on March 1, 2011 and am sticking with it.

My boobs are definitely fuller/larger, eyelashes are noticeably longer, skin is still glowing and my newgrowth is very soft. **Also as some of you may know I had a horrible accident last summer which left me with 2 broken legs.. well up until my MSM usage, I had really bad knee pains and thats gone as well  Thumbs UpThumbs Up

My cycle is back to regular length (days) and I notice that I barely have cramps when it is that time.

Right now I take 1/2 a teaspoon 4xs a week and on the other 3 days of the week my Hairfinity (until my 2 bottles run out) I am still on my other vitamins, but plan on re-evaluating  them as well once I am out.

IMO MSM is a winner Smile

Update ***

Hair is stronger, and new growth is coming in soft and wavy. 
Boobs are tender and full.
Skin is blemish free and tone is evening. 
Body hair is growing fast. Have to shave legs/pits/bikini area every 2-3 days. Using wax for face which helps to keep away the moustache!
Periods regular but LIGHT. 5th day isn't really a 5th day.
