As a natural substance extracted from wood, Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) can offer the benefit of reducing inflammation, as well as help alleviate pain. On the other hand, DMSO cream or gel can be applied directly to any wounds.

Dimethyl sulfoxide, commonly known as DMSO, has often been described as a miracle substance by people who have used it. It has been used by many people to treat all different kinds of ailments that afflict people from all around the world. So, what makes it so special?
DMSO is a natural chemical compound derived from trees as a by-product from the manufacturing of paper. It is composed of two methyl groups (CH3) and a sulphur and an oxygen atom. It can be commonly found as topical DMSO gel or in DMSO cream form. In some countries, they are made available as a IV drip in some clinics. Oral intake of 100% DMSO is also available, though its pungent garlicy smell makes it very hard for many to swallow.
DMSO was first synthesised by the Russian chemist, by the name of Alexander Zaytsev, in the year 1866. However, over the past 80 years, it has largely been ignored by the scientific world, as the focus shifted to research conducted on western medicine around the principles from Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch. This continued until the 1960s, when Stanley W. Jacob, M.D., who was the head of organ transplant team at the University of Oregon Medical School (now called Oregon Health Sciences University) started looking into the possible use of DMSO for the purpose of preservation of organs, and then consequently discovering its many other properties for treatment of different conditions. Dr. Jacob was known as the founding father of DMSO. This discovery was revolutionary, but was not without its controversy in the US at the time, as it was very different from other medical research that was going on during the same period that were largely led by pharmaceutical companies and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US.
DMSO is in the same family as MSM, or methyl sulfonyl methane, a naturally derived sulphur compound that occurs in the body. Whilst the 2 compounds do have some overlapping benefits like the treatment of pain and inflammation, they are not the same. MSM is approved by the US FDA as a natural supplement (as it is found in the human body and in food), but DMSO is only approved in the US for treatment of epilepsy.
Free radicals are unstable charged molecular fragments that attack other molecules, causing severe damage to cells in the body. This will in turn disrupt the normal functioning of the various organs in the body. Free radical change is typically slow and tends to accumulate over the years. A good example of such ailment is arthritis. A lot of our DMSO HK clients are looking at associated products because of this issue.
Studies have shown that DMSO cream may have an immune normalising effect, helping the immune system fight off various infectious and contagious diseases.
As DMSO has the ability to pass through human skin and other cellular membranes of the body, it also happens to be one of the few products that can cross the blood brain barrier. Some DMSO Hong Kong users opt to combine DMSO cream/gel with other natural compounds like essential oils for deeper penetration effects.
This means that the use of DMSO gel can increase blood flow, allowing blood to more easily reach areas where damage may have occurred. When you are injured, it causes decreased blood flow to the injury site, and some of the damage is caused by the lack of blood to the area after the injury, and not just the injury itself.
Arthritis is the number one cause of disability for people over the age of 65 in the US. Conventional medical treatment uses a dangerous combination of painkillers whose purpose is only to stop the pain from the arthritis for a short period of time. These types of drugs do not actually prevent or even correct the problem. Long term intake can also lead to serious side effects.
Also, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) can be especially harmful to patients’ joints. NSAIDs block the enzymes that help produce the inflammatory compounds, but at the same time, they also inhibit the action of enzymes that help produce cartilage to protect the joints. Therefore, whilst the NSAID helps relieve some pain, it may actually make the arthritic process worse.
Unlike NSAIDs, it has been shown that DMSO cream or DMSO gel products, when used on their own or combined with other products, can be a very effective form of arthritis treatment without any side effects. A DMSO HK product is able to reduce pain and muscle spasms around the arthritic joints, while also improving blood flow which can bring needed nutrients to the damaged areas. It also provides the biologically available sulphur to the damaged joint, and DMSO cream can reduce inflammation.
DMSO cream’s ability to eradicate free radicals mean that it is potentially able to help with many degenerative ailments. Studies are not conducted in the US, but those conducted in South America and Europe have shown this.
DMSO creams have been used to treat sport injuries for over 50 years. Any activity involving constant minor trauma, pounding, or repetitive use of certain muscles, joints, tendons etc can lead to a larger problem later. Endurance events like marathons can cause continuous stress that may suddenly show up days or months later as a painful injury to the knee or hip, for example.
Cumulation of repeated small scale trauma to muscle tissue can accumulate and lead to scar tissue and adhesions. When muscles are worked too hard repeatedly, muscle fiber can be severely damaged or even destroyed. These injuries can in turn make heavy exercise counter-productive in some cases.
What is the main reason for using DMSO HK products before or after sports? The main reason is to reduce inflammation. The free radical scavenger property in DMSO Hong Kong products help reduce damage from injuries.
DMSO creams have proven to be effective in treating burns and cuts. It also helps with reduction / elimination of scarring. When you are searching for DMSO HK products, check to see whether there is aloe vera in the ingredients, as the combination can speed up healing of cuts and burns, or open wounds.
This is the most common repetitive strain injury in the workplace. It is caused by compression of the median nerve which results in neuropathy of the nerve. The median nerve is the nerve in the wrist that supplies feelings and movements to parts of the hand. Compression of this nerve will lead to numbness, tingling or muscle damage to the hands and fingers, and in the long term can cause permanent nerve damage and atrophy in some muscles in hand and fingers.
This is the second most popular reason why we see DMSO HK clients buying products.
DMSO HK products are a potent anti-inflammatory agent. In classical signs of injury, like pain, swelling, heat, redness or loss of function, DMSO creams or gels have been able to act as a potent anti-inflammatory agent. It is also able to increase the effectiveness of cortisol, which is the anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the adrenal glands. This is not to be confused with cortisone, which is an anti-inflammatory steroid.
