Effect of Methylsulfonylmethane on Cardiometabolic Health

Study Description

The Effect of Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) on Cardiometabolic Health

Obesity- related diseases are linked to elevated levels of inflammation, oxidative stress, and metabolic dysfunction. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring compound that demonstrates antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Improvements in measures of metabolic health have been observed in mouse models of obesity and type 2 diabetes following MSM treatment. However, the effect of MSM on obesity-related risk factors for disease in humans has not been investigated. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation will be to determine whether MSM supplementation improves metabolic health, and markers of inflammation and oxidative status.
