DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) is an all natural liquid by-product of the logging industry with many profound health benefits. Some interesting facts about this substance are listed below:
DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) is a simple small molecule with amazing chemical, biological and physical characteristics which has not received the coverage it is due.
DMSO is the resulting by-product from the manufacturing of pulp and paper. It has been used for over forty years.
DMSO’s basic medical properties are:
DMSO is a rapidly absorbed skin penetrant, with the ability to carry other substances through membranes it acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
DMSO is a cryoprotective agent, protecting frozen tissue.
DMSO is a potent anti-oxidant, scavenging the highly reactive molecules that contribute to disease and aging, known as free radicals.
It has been found that medications dissolved in DMSO retain their therapeutic activity and their specific properties over a longer period of time.
It maintains and multiplies the activity of many drugs.
Allergic reactions are diminished by the actions of DMSO.
Other properties of DMSO are:
DMSO May help reduce pain and swelling
DMSO acts as an anti-oxidant
DMSO forms a water molecule in the body which is easily excreted
DMSO- acts as a free radical scavenger

The training of performance horses and racing animals involves periods of intense physical activity which makes them very susceptible to injury.
Following such injury (muscular, etc.), inflammation is the first step in the healing process.
The pain associated with inflammation warns the body that injury has occurred and that rest is needed.
DMSO containing Dimethyl Sulfoxide (D.M.S.O.), acts as both an anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain reliever).
Because of its unique ability to pass through the skin, it is absorbed rapidly helping the animal to return to full fitness more quickly.
DMSO is a colorless liquid derived from lignin, the natural material that bonds together the cells of trees.
DMSO is extracted during the manufacturing of pulp and then processed.
DMSO is an organic non-synthesized product.
