Default Which is the Best TYPE of MSM?

I am soooo not a supplement person, but I would like to ease myself in slowly in the new year by taking MSM. I'd like to know which form you ladies find the most effective (especially from those who have tried multiple types!)

I'm all about the powder. As I understand it, the flakes and crystals are inferior to this form of MSM. Also make sure you're getting OptiMSM, it's best in whatever form.

Honestly, I did not see MSM benefits until I started using DistilPure MSM Crystal Flakes. That is after takine Different brands using OptiMSM powder for about 8 months. After about a month using the DistilPure MSM Crystal Flakes I see the normal reported benefits of MSM - I never saw that with OptiMSM brands in powder form. I am not saying they are not good, but for the the DistilPure MSM Crystal Flakes have been the best.

I voted powder because I hate swallowing pills...although I do it religously. I just simply like the ease of putting the powder in my orange juice on the morning and that's that.

Since you're in Canada, try this link:

I use the DistilPure MSM as well. It's the only brand of MSM I've used, but I love it so far. It seems very pure and very potent.

I also believe in Distilpure. But I also used Trimedica PureMSM before and had the same confidence in it. I'll confess that I don't always know what difference it's making coz sometimes my nails seems strong when I'm taking it and the next time nothing seems to change. I've never noticed any change with my hair. So if I do get it, it's only coz I know it doesn't hurt and trust it is doing some good even though I don't see it. Oh, I tell a lie. I believe it helps my joints.
