OptiMSM® for Sports & Recovery Performance

Sports activities boost strength, endurance, and cardiovascular fitness but also raise injury risks and strain on joints and tissues. OptiMSM® is a leading source of MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), well-known for supporting antioxidant response, joint and cartilage health, and overall physical function. Backed by extensive scientific research, OptiMSM® demonstrates its potential to alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle soreness, and damage, while also reducing oxidative stress post-exercise.1-3

Moreover, OptiMSM® holds the Informed Ingredient® certification, further affirming its suitability for sports nutrition formulas with added assurance of safety.

For thirty years, OptiMSM® has set the standard in MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) for purity, safety & consistency in nutritional applications.

It is manufactured in a specialised facility in the U.S., undergoing a proprietary multi-stage distillation process. This process effectively eliminates impurities by isolating MSM molecules using distinct boiling points. Additionally, distillation ensures low moisture content, minimizing the chances of micro-contamination and degradation.

OptiMSM® offers two grades: microprill for tablets and capsules, and flakes for various formulations like powder blends, ready to drink sachets, liquid shots and functional beverages. We also provide OptiMSM® 1000mg Vegetarian Capsules, ensuring a clean-label and vegan option, plus they offer a convenient and efficient solution for bringing your product to market quickly. Don't compromise on quality! Include OptiMSM® in your next sports nutrition formulation.
