Can the supplement MSM cause depression?

Answer: MSM is a dietary supplement that has exceptional benefits for people with arthritis. It improves joint flexibility and nourishes hair, skin and nails. There is accumulating data that suggests MSM may reduce allergies to food and pollen. And no, it does not cause depression.
