Be sure to take MSM according to product instruction. Here is a dosage recommendation and things you should avoid in order to get the most benefit out of MSM. Keep in mind that taking more MSM that directed does not appear to better result.
The reason for that is because MSM is not stored in your body, the excess amount gets flush out of your body every 12 hours. So only take the amount recommended for your body weight. This helps you to avoid the unnecessary waste and also helps you save money.
