I am an african woman and I want to grow my hair long. I have done my research and I have heard that MSM is very good aid in helping with the hair growing process. When I started taking MSM I have to say I really started to notice my face clearing up, I hardly have any break outs, my nails are harder and my hair is growing mad.

Yes, you guys the pills are big but just drink a big cup of water and the pill should go down easy. Taking this pill is like taking a multi-vitamin. I take MSM, Multivitamin (Alive), Biotin, horsetail for my daily regime. I only take once a day with lots of water. You have to drink lots of water with all products I use. Remember WATER WATER WATER WATER!!!

This is an excellent value for a really good product. I swear by MSM as a beauty product as well as a health product. My hair and nails grow so fast and strong when I'm taking it and I believe everyday wear and tear skin abrasions and cuts heal more quickly. I have never experienced any gastro upset, ever. Some believe this is beneficial for joint health and comfort. I have a history of hip and knee arthritis which for the most part is no longer bothersome, but I take glucosamine so I don't know if both, time or etc has had that nice effect. Many of these products are labeled as 1500 mg but once you purchase and read the label you see you must actually take multiple tablets to get that amount- this product gives 1500 mg in just one tablet, making this an excellent value. They are a touch large, but I get them down with no trouble. Hard to find a comparable bargain for MSM at this level- I've looked and compared all over the place!

I am SO TICKED OFF! This is NOT the MSM that I ordered. Come ON, Amazon! Regulate your sellers better FFS.
(FYI this is in ref to a product photo advertising Dr.'s Best with OptiMSM. They may have actually updated the photo now.)

I use MSM to clear up acne marks. IF it's good stuff then I can clear a complexion in 2 days. I have an event this weekend. Today is Wednesday. I ordered this crap Monday morning because of the advertised OptiMSM which is the original MSM producer/research group from the 70's. Now I'm screwed. This sucks.

What's the big difference between Lignisul and Opti? A lot.

"Lignisul MSM is manufactured by Fine Netraceuticals, Inc. (FNI) at a facility in Alabama (granular) and in Canada (powder) from DMSO obtained from a FNI-owned facility in China. Their DMSO is produced through a chemical reaction. The DMSO is tested upon arrival to the US to strict guidelines prior to manufacture into MSM. Then the MSM is tested by an independent third party for purity and contamination where it is certified as 99.9% pure and free of contaminants and heavy metals. While Lignisul is made in the US, not all raw materials originate in the US. FNI does not currently pay any royalties to the MSM patent holder, MSM Investments Company, LLC., claiming that the existing patents are either invalid or expired. FNI (formerly CarolwoodMSM) won a court decision in August of 2001, which reinforced their position on at least one of the patents.

OptiMSM is manufactured in Washington by Cardinal Nutrition at a facility that Cardinal owns and is dedicated only for making MSM. Their plant is NNFA GMP certified. They obtain their DMSO from the only US-based provider of DMSO. Therefore, OptiMSM is made wholly in the US from raw materials obtained in the US and North America, and is also certified as pure and free of contaminants and heavy metals. Cardinal does pay royalties to the MSM patent holder, MSM Investments Company, LLC., but is not the patent holder itself. Dr. Stanley Jacob, one of the authors of The Miracle of MSM - The Natural Solution for Pain, has given his endorsement to the OptiMSM brand."

- [...]

The photo of the pill bottle above shows a blue "OptiMSM" seal. The bottle I got has a "Lignisul" seal. This is FALSE advertising. AND to make add salt to the wound, the price I paid for it on Monday was: Order Total: $12.95 - Today, two-days later, it's: Price: $6.90.

Scandalous. I am demanding a full refund. SHAME on AMAZON and on the supplier, House of Nutrition, Inc. These are health products you're selling. Not a pair of shoes. These items are actually important to get right.

Edit: Amazon graciously gave me a full refund and since I am stuck on a deadline to do a show this weekend, and I have marks to clear up - I am stuck taking this Chinese/Alabama garbage till I can find some real OptiMSM.
Update: The House of Nutrition sent two passive aggressive emails about how they want me to remove my review because it hurts their business and then told me Lignisul was fine and not made in China. When I sent them case information of the Lignisul company dating back a decade of dealing with Chinese MSM they relented and the owner contact me and told me they're on the case. This was a week and ahalf ago. Haven't heard back from anyone since. As for the quality of the product. It's no quick healer in the capacity I've had from Opti. So there you go.

I ordered this because my hair had been thinning (post-menopausal). No other females in my family have had this problem - mother, aunts, grandmothers,.... I'm on my second bottle and I take this with biotin. The thinning is beginning to reverse. Is having a positive effect on my skin and nails, as well.

I started taking this a couple of months ago in combination with Glucosamine Sulfate to help strengthen a bad knee joint. It certainly did that, too, but what I didn't expect was the tremendous difference it's made in my hair. I have very long straight hair with no real body to it at all, but within 2 weeks of starting this MSM product I was amazed at the improvement I saw in my hair. It's noticeably thicker and shinier ---- not maybe, could be, but really obviously so. Even my husband who usually doesn't notice that kind of thing has commented on how much thicker and healthier my hair looks now. I'm completely blown away by the effectiveness of this supplement and I've been telling all my friends about it. Really, it's like a miracle in a bottle and I highly recommend it.

I bought this solely for hair growth. I know that MSM can be used for a variety of things. I read reviews on here and on hair websites that indicated it was good for hair growth. I'm a Guyanese-American (black) woman and was interested in something to grow my hair quickly. I recently had a bad experience with some color, so needed a quick fix. I started using a couple of months ago and can honestly say that m hair growth has doubled, if not tripled. Where I was previously growing at the rate of about 1/2 inch a month, I increased to 1"/month. I will continue to use. I must say that I was using in conjunction with silica, so that may be why the growth was so significant, but I know for sure that this worked on me. Additionally, I use one pill in the morning and one in the evening though I believe the recommended dose is one pill per day. Good luck! Would definitely recommend these pills and the manufacturer.

Be advised that the pills are horse pill-sized. Additionally, I'm 'sure these pills worked on my aches and pains too (since I haven't experienced any as of late), but I was solely focused on the hair growth, so what the other people are saying about other uses is likely true for me as well.

MSM is definitely working for my hair and skin! My skin is clear and bright, my hair is growing thick and strong. I needed a super relaxer for my last touch-up. I'm not aware of the other benefits my body is getting from MSM. I'm sure there are plenty. I can definitely tell you about my skin and hair though. Try it!

Since taking MSM my hair grows more quickly. Also my hair seems more softer and instead of corkscrew curls, I have soft s shaped curls. Worth a try!

I ordered this product just after Christmas 2012 and within two weeks, my hair was unbreakable and my nails couldn't be torn or bent. I've always had clear skin, so I can't say if this product improved my skin tone or not. I'm simply amazed at the short amount of time it took to transform my hair and nails!

I have gone through two bottles of this product and I am about to start my third bottle in about a week, and let me tell you, my hair has not stopped growing since I've been using MSM! I decided to let my hair grow out natural and start a healthy hair journey about a year ago and I started to research different vitamins needed to grow and maintain healthy hair. I came across MSM and read about how it is suppose to extend the hair growth cycle so I decided to order some on amazon. Since taking MSM my hair is heathier than ever and has grown a lot and super fast. At the rate my hair is growing, my hair will be down my back by this summer. I also take super potency biotin along with two msm pills a day. I would definitely recommend this product for fast hair growth!
