Authored by Richard J. Bloomer and Daniel A. Melcher (both with the University of Memphis’ Department of Health and Sport Sciences) and Rodney L. Benjamin (director of research and development for Bergstrom Nutrition), the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study set out to discover how MSM concentrates within human serum.
“While MSM has been known to have excellent bioavailability, published data within the public domain regarding serum concentrations following chronic ingestion is minimal,” said Benjamin. “The publication of this study may help other researchers by reporting values as measured by NMR and demonstrating how daily MSM supplementation impacts human serum concentrations over the course of a four week period.”
“We found the increase of MSM in serum appeared to be somewhat time-dependent, with the majority of subjects experiencing a continued rise from week two to week four,” said Bloomer.
“This provides a starting point for potential future studies related to dosage and time-ranging.”
Bergstrom Nutrition’s OptiMSM has been included in products targeted for the following categories: joint health, exercise recovery, nutricosmetic, beauty-from-within, and healthy aging.
