DMSO - Dimethyl Sulfoxide
DMSO aka dimethyl
is an all-natural substance
derived from wood pulp. DMSO is produced through the normal decomposition of
plants, as well as fresh and marine algae. DMSO is found in small amounts in
milk. DMSO can penetrate the skin and travel through the body quickly.
Physicians use DMSO to carry other medicinal substances into the body
quickly, which consequently makes them much more effective. DMSO has been
used for many years in sports medicine for a variety of problems and
derived from DMSO. DMSO is an oily liquid with a garlicky smell that when
applied topically may reduce pain and inflammation in joints and muscles.
It's been shown to promote healing of minor cuts and burns.
can help enhance
immune-system function and protect against free-radicals. DMSO is a powerful
antioxidant. It promotes healing of minor cuts and burns.
Viruses lack genetic
material of their own, they can only multiply within a cell some viruses,
once in the cell, are protected by the protein coating of the cell making
most antiviral drugs ineffective. One of the most important attributes of
DMSO is its ability to enter the cell itself. DMSO is a death sentence for
viruses because it contains oxygen; viruses cannot exist in a highly
oxygenated environment. When DMSO is applied properly, it enters the cell
and kills the virus. This has shown to be particularly effective in the
treatment of the herpes virus; DMSO is also excellent for healing deep
tissue, muscle injuries, burns, and other wounds. The FDA has approved DMSO
for interstital cystitis, but for nothing else at the time of this writing;
however, because of this approval, a medical doctor can prescribe DMSO in
the U.S. for many other health conditions. Some studies have shown it to be
effective with arthritis and other inflammatory conditions due to its
collagen softening and pain relieving properties.

When applied to the skin, DMSO is quickly absorbed, moving straight to

decreased inflammation, there is increased blood flow to the injured areas,
and our blood can then transport more nutrients and antioxidants to the
