COMPLETE GUIDE TO DMSO
In this article, we will discuss all about a substance found in wood called Dimethyl Sulfoxide or DMSO. People in the know swear by all the benefits of DMSO. So this tutorial will help you decide if you can benefit from the use of DMSO. We will discuss the potential benefits, side effects, and all other useful information regarding this chemical. In Addition, we also advise to always do your own research on any topic and speak with your healthcare professional.
So why do we never hear about it? Simple, it’s a cheap common organic sulfur compound and Big Pharma cannot get exclusive patent rights to it, so their is no incentive to promote it.
WHAT IS DMSO?
DMSO is a substance found in wood pulp and was a by-product of the Kraft paper making process and was first synthesized by Russian Scientist Alexander Zaytsev in 1866.
More importantly, it is an organic sulfur compound and as we should know sulfur is present in all life forms and in every cell of our bodies; we cannot exist without it.
DMSO is powerful. One can put a few drops of DMSO on your foot and taste it in your mouth in about 12 seconds. It has a bit of a garlicky taste. When applied on the skin if might give off this garlic scent, and you usually won’t notice it, but others might.
It goes through the cell walls of the body so fast that a dropper-full of it taken internally through the mouth never reaches the stomach when swallowed. Most of it is absorbed directly into the mouth, the rest in the throat. This gives one an unusual feeling of heat as it goes directly through the individual cells of the mouth and then penetrates into all other areas of the body.
We promote topical use only, but if you are going to take it internally we advise to research this and find out how to do this safely.
HEAVY METALS – As a source of sulfur, DMSO aids in heavy metal detoxification. Sulfur binds with toxic heavy metals (lead, nickel, arsenic, mercury, aluminum, cadmium) and eliminates them via sweating, defecation, and urination.
PAIN RELIEF – DMSO is an effective for killing pain, blocking nerve conduction ﬁbers that produce pain while reducing inﬂammation and swelling by eliminating inﬂammatory chemicals.
CALMING EFFECT – It also has a relaxing effect on the central nervous system as DMSO is systemic, meaning once absorb via the skin it will reach all areas of the body, including the brain, not just the specific area where you applied it.
IMPROVED BLOOD SUPPLY – DMSO dilates one’s blood vessels and increases delivery of oxygen to an injury, while also reducing blood platelet stickiness, meaning it reduces blood clots depriving an injured area from receiving oxygen and nutrients.
IMMUNE BOOST – DMSO boosts the immune system, increasing the production of white blood cells and macrophages that destroy foreign material and pathogens in the body.
ANTI – Has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Also, it is among the most potent free radical scavengers discovered, if not the most potent one. Free radicals are thought to be the cause of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, not to mention aging issues.
DMSO AND CBD
We are the only know Company we know of to create a CBD topical lotion with DMSO. This combines the numerous benefits of both CBD and DMSO in one. We also added numerous other ingredients such as Camphor Bark Oil, Aloe, Arnica Montana Extract, and Green Tea Leaf Extract. In Addition, we added an Organic Essential Oil blend of Wintergreen, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Ginger, Lavender, Rosemary, and Tea Tree.
All of these ingredients have their own benefits individually, and when you combine them together you have a real powerhouse of natural and beneficial nutrients for a multitude of issues.
If you study DMSO you will likely read that you have to buy it in a glass container. However, DMSO is compatible with plastics like PETE, HDPE, LDPE ,PTFE and PP. But, it is not compatible with other plastics such as, PVC, PS, and poly carbonate due to its reactivity.
Side Effects have been minimal at best. Some users have reported, when using it at full strength, some irritation to the area where applied and a warm feeling, as well as some itching. Typically, this last for only a few minutes. Many users will use with Coconut oil or another ingredient to lessen its potency.
Must be used on clean skin. Anything that is on your skin will be taken into your body when applying DMSO. So it is best to apply on clean, dry skin and let absorb into the skin before dressing.
This is why many users will use an organic aloe or coconut oil to bring those nutrients directly into the body through the skin.
On Amazon you can find Full strength DMSO products as well as others that are blended with Aloe or essential oils.
The FDA has approved DMSO as a prescription medication for treating symptoms of painful bladder syndrome. It’s also used under medical supervision to treat several other conditions, including shingles.
