Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is an amazing substance that has many uses throughout the world. It is basically a solvent made from the sap of trees.
DMSO is a scavenger of the intracellular OH radical believed to be an important trigger of inflammatory process. It is a clear liquid known for its ability to permeate living tissue.
Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is well known for its solvent properties. It is well absorbed and enhances transcutaneous penetration of drugs.
It is a powerful scavenger of the damaging hydroxyl free radicals in the body which are associated with arthritis. It can prevent free radicals from destroying the lubricating fluid in the joints if used early and regularly in the disease process.
DMSO is also commonly used in veterinary medicine as a liniment for horses, alone or in combination with other ingredients. In the latter case, often, the intended function of the DMSO is as a solvent, to carry the other ingredients across the skin.
Its value is threefold in nature in that as an anti-inflammatory agent or analgesic it seems to reduce swelling, heat and pain and at a very quick rate. DMSO is quickly absorbed through the skin and can carry contaminants and impurities with it.
Although embroiled in controversy early on, DMSO is approved by the FDA for the palliative treatment of interstitial cystitis and for limited veterinary use. It is not allowed for use as a dietary supplement, yet many sufferers, especially those who suffer from arthritis, acquire it and use it as such themselves.
