Did you know that the average American has 212 chemicals in their body right now?[i] You’re exposed daily, virtually 24/7, in the air you breathe, the water you drink and even the food you eat.
Items in your home that you depend on and love — like your couch cushions, your non-stick pans, and your favorite scented candles — are also sources of toxin exposure that, ultimately, may be a key reason for painful joints.
While joint pain is often associated with repetitive motions or regular ‘wear-and-tear’ that can cause your cartilage to breakdown, toxic buildup has also been associated with joint pain.
This might sound surprising at first, until you realize that chronic inflammation is one of they key reasons why people experience ongoing pain, including joint pain. In fact, arthritis — one of the top causes of joint pain in the United States — may occur because inflammatory cytokines destroy joint cartilage and synovial fluid.
What does this have to do with your daily toxic exposures?
Toxins are a Major Contributor to Chronic Inflammation
Chronic inflammation is sometimes referred to as the ‘silent killer’ because it often causes no symptoms at all, yet simmers silently until suddenly you’re diagnosed with a chronic disease. Body aches and pains, including joint pain, are one of the signs that you could have unchecked inflammation in your body.
What causes this inflammation? Many factors, actually, like your diet, stress and lack of sleep. But one of the major contributors is exposure to environmental toxins, which accumulate and build up in your body over a lifetime — unless you take steps to detoxify regularly.
What types of environmental toxins are common in Americans? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals identified the following as widespread:
- Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, which are fire-retardant chemicals used widely in household furnishings, children’s products and more
- Bisphenol-A (BPA), a chemical found in plastics and food packaging (including the lining of canned goods)
- Perfluorinated chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which is used in non-stick cookware
- Triclosan, an antibacterial chemical widely used in toothpaste, hand soap and other personal care products
- Volatile organic compounds, which are found in countless household products such as paints, air fresheners, carpeting, cosmetics, cleaning products, car emissions and more
- Perchlorate, which is used in rocket fuel and fireworks
- Parabens, commonly used as preservatives in personal care products
- Phthalates, chemicals used to make plastics more flexible
- Organophosphorus insecticides, used widely on food crops and also for mosquito control
Reducing Toxic Buildup With MSM
There are a number of ways to help cleanse your system and support your body’s natural detoxification pathways for joint health. Your diet plays a role, of course, and you may have heard that it’s important to eat sulfur-containing foods such as onions, garlic, broccoli and kale, as these help your liver to detoxify your body.
Methylsulfonylmethane, more commonly known as MSM, is a naturally occurring nutritional sulfur found in a variety of foods, like meat, seafood, fruits and vegetables. MSM is important for the health of your connective tissues and the formation of collagen, and helps nourish your joints for optimal function.
It also helps provide the raw material for cell creation and repair, while making your body’s cells more permeable, which allows nutrients to flow in and out. Research has shown that MSM is effective at reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis, including inflammation and pain, especially when combined with glucosamine.[ii]
Another little-known effect, however, is that MSM may help your body to detoxify, in part because it provides beneficial sulfur. Sulfur is important for the production of glutathione, an antioxidant that supports liver health and detoxification.[iii] It’s also known to help your body detoxify environmental pollutants.
In fact, it is sulfur compounds’ important role in cellular detoxification that might explain why they’re potentially useful in helping to prevent cancer.[iv]
While you can get MSM via your diet, it is impacted by cooking and pasteurization, so only raw or minimally processed foods will supply meaningful amounts. If you don’t eat many raw foods, MSM is easy to get at therapeutic levels in supplement form, and that’s why we included it in Super Joint Support.
