Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a organic sulfur-based compound. It can be found in the normal diets of humans and almost all other vertebrates. The proper chemical name for MSM is dimethyl sulfone. It is the primary, oxidized metabolite of dimethyl sulfoxide, and it appears to share many of its parent compound’s properties.
MSM belongs to a family of compounds that are abundant in the food chains of terrestrial and ocean life. These compounds are the stable end product of the methyl-S-methane series of compounds that provide bioavailable sulfur to as many as 85% of all living organisms. These compounds—principally dimethyl sulfide (DMS)—are among the Earth’s few primary forms of sulfur.
The sulfur cycle begins in the ocean, where algae and phytoplankton release sulfur compounds, called tertiary dimethylsulfonium salts. These salts are transformed to DMS, a highly volatile compound. Oceanic DMS is the major form of sulfur to the atmosphere and contributes both to the tropospheric sulfur burden and to particle formation and growth in the atmosphere.
