Vitamin C (as L-ascorbic acid)   -   100 mg
Molybdenum (as molybdenum Krebs ϯϯ)   -   25 mcg
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)    -   500 mg

More Info.

Sulfur is an indispensable element in human nutrition. As part of the amino acids methionine and cysteine, sulfur is required for the structural integrity and function of almost every protein in the body, including enzymes, serum proteins, and the keratin of skin, hair, and nails. Sulfur is also an essential element for the glycosaminoglycans of connective tissues and cartilage, and assumes a major role in liver detoxification as part of the hepatic sulfur conjugation pathways. Proper detoxification of xenobiotics, such as phenols, and many endogenous and foreign food- or air-borne compounds depends on an adequate supply of biologically active sulfur.

Dietary MSM serves as a versatile donor of metabolically active sulfur for the synthesis of numerous organosulfur compounds and proteins in the body. As such, MSM helps maintain normal immune response, lung function, connective tissue metabolism, and muscle contraction. MSM occurs naturally in a variety of foods, such as fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, milk, and fish. However, MSM is volatile and easily lost during cooking. MSM is very well absorbed by the intestinal tract and rapidly distributed within the body. Molybdenum is an essential trace element that assists in the proper metabolism of sulfur. Specifically, molybdenum is the cofactor of sulfite oxidase, an enzyme that converts potentially toxic sulfite to sulfate. This reaction is necessary for the normal metabolism of the sulfur amino acids. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous biological functions. Foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of collagen fibers-lysyl hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases. As such, vitamin C is essential for normal wound healing and capillary health.
