Hi all!
I was wondering what would feeding pure MSM do?

Someone suggested giving it to my black gelding (cant remember why) so I bought a tub to see what all it will do. Havent gotten it yet.

MSM is for joints. My old girl gets it to keep her from getting stiff and sore.

I give MSM to my horse as a preventive joint supplement. It's also known to have anti-inflammatory properties and I've heard that it helps with some allergies (in people and horses).

I thought glucosamine was for the stiff joints as far as lube and the Msm was anti-inflammatory also in the joints. I often wondered if it would work in other parts of the body or if its just for the joints.

Glucosamine and chondroitin are naturally found chemicals in the body that aid in the production of cartilage. As the horse begins to age the cartilage between the bones may begin to thin causing pain as the bones rub together. Increasing the amount of glucosamine chondroitin can improve the cartilage - thus relieving the pain caused by osteoarthritis.
MSM contains sulfer which is necessary for the production of collagen, gluclosamine and chondroitin - these are the building block of cartilage. MSM is promoted as an excellent natural solution to inflammation and pain.
A glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM combo supplement works well.
