by J.R. Rogers
is touted highly principally by those companies who are marketing
products which contain this supplement. (methyl-sulfonyl-methane)
Frankly, it is greatly overrated in the overall picture. It has historically

What I am saying is that the companies that use the ingredient claim
that you absolutely must have this to gain successful rehabilitation
of your joints. This is simply not true. There other ingredients that
