Does methyl sulphonyl methane relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome?
Q: I am suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) for the past 18 years. I read an article on the Internet regarding MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane). The article says that the person suffering with acidity, loose motions, stress, etc. can get relief from these symptoms. What is your opinion on MSM tablets?
A:MethylSulfonylMethane (MSM) has not been assessed by any national regulatory authority on medicines and is not approved for IBS anywhere. Lot of information on the internet is sponsored by commercial organizations and people should be careful.
