Thread: how much msm is safe to take?

  1. #1

    Default how much msm is safe to take?

    going to start taking msm

    does it break people out first off?

    secondly I'm slim/medium build, 5'7 and young so I'm wondering how much MSM I should take for benefits of hair growth and skin ect

    do I need to take anything else with the msm ?

    So funny you posted this right after my post about prenatal vitamins. I"m curious to see what people write/suggest. I'm just learning about MSM.

    i started taking msm just over a month ago. And am blown away by the results!! 4cm (1.5inches) growth in one month woohoo!!

    The first thing i noticed was increased nail growth, and hair elsewhere on my body...having to shave my armpits every 2 days instead of once a week! My eyelashes also grew much much longer.

    I brought msm tablets from healthspan in the uk, they ship internationally, reasonably priced and it is the purest form of msm available (optimsm)

    Im a 5'4 and 50kgs so a pretty small frame..

    I started out taking 3 tablets a day which is 2400mg and had absolutely no nasty side effects. I am very acne prone (to the point i had to take roaccutane a few years back) and did not get a single break out.

    My dad also started taking msm - though purely for the joint/arthritis benefits (he is diabetic so cant take glucosamine) and he too has noticed rapidly increased hair and nail growth - so i daresay that on its own it will make a noticable difference.

    Im also taking hair formula 37.

    Hope this helps a bit!

    meant to say also that the recomended dose on the package is 3 tablets a day, so i started with that.

    if you are worried, then start with 2 tabs a day.

    Apparently it is more effective if taken in separate doses, so i take one tab morning, noon and night.

    I have been taking 8000mg a day for the last 3 months. I started taking it because of my severe arthritis. But one of the benefits is quick nail growth and hair growth. Also my arthritis pain way relieved in less than 3 days.HTH
    P.S. Forgot to tell you my skin is also in better condition.

    You can't take too much MSM. Once your body gets its fill, it flushes out the rest!
    I take 3 capsuls a day which adds up to 3000mg =]] I've had no bad side effects

    Goals: SL 17" -> APL 21" -> BSL 26" -> MBL 28" -> WL 31"

    When I was researching for my article on supplements I came to the conclusion that sources that don’t try to sell you MSM recommend a dose of no higher than 2000 mg per day
    Also be aware that many members on this forum has personally had problems with depression linked to using MSM
