Years ago my sister who is a certified nutritionist recommended these to me and I've been impressed how well they help me with flexibility in my knees. When I've dropped the ball on taking them I really notice a difference how much more difficult it is to get around. I use to think there wasn't a big difference if i took them or not, but let me tell you it does make a BIG difference! Swanson vitamins absorb into the system really well too so you always get your money's worth.

These are a good strength and it is convenient to take two a day to get 3000mg, but they are really big to swallow. I don't have problems with any supplements and can take several at a time, but these have to be swallowed separately and can definitely be felt going down.

This item should come with a warning. The size of these pills are what you would call horse pills. I tried swallowing one and was afraid it would get stuck in my throat. I tried using a pill cutter to cut the pill in half and it still was not so easy getting it down.

I've been taking msm for a year now and my hair has been growing stronger and is shinny again !
Swansons msm is high quality, and that is what matters most to me.

It's hard to keep up with all the things necessary to enhance our generally poor diet. Sulfur is high on the list of "missing" or "insufficient". MSM is an easy way to get there. I don't have to eat so many onions! It's helping me. I do wish the pills weren't as big as they are, but I'm managing.

i started taking the MSN and I am getting convinced about it quality , so far so good

This is a really great product that takes a lot of flack from the size of the pills. Come on. They're not that big, just a fraction of the size of a mouth full of food. This way you get a significant amount of MSM with only one pill. It is very convenient and I've had good results from taking this. Try it and you'll see. It does what is claimed for it.

Hard to swallow
This pill is gigantic with edges that make it hard to swallow.

big results in a big tab
yes it is big. but I take multiple supplements all the time and I had no trouble swallowing. For those who have difficulty I recommend a chunk of banana :-)
I felt I saw immediate results in skin tone and even eye clarity. now that I have entered menopause I have found swansons and their products to be a lifesaver!

not the best for of msm
MSM tablets and capsules have been used off and on for more than 10 years in my family with moderate results. We stayed with it because we weren't aware of any other form until recently when I discovered it in the organic powdered form. Since starting that form my health has shown marked improvement. The body is comprised of 4% sulphur but does not store the sulphur nor make it. I hasten to add I've made some dietary changes as well. I've searched Swanson's site but cannot find this form but it is available on line. Best of health to you all.

I don't notice how much this product REALLY HELPS until I run out. I keep a good supply on hand all the time now.

Too hard to digest
I tried this product and it made me so gassy and unhappy. i gave it to my mom and it upset her stomach for hours.

I have ordered a great many pills from Swanson in the past but was unprepared for this pill's size. I know they have the pill size guide but didn't use it. I would SERIOUSLY suggest consulting it for this pill. I am able to handle it but it is "difficult". The 1,000 mg is so much easier to take than this one. I guess the "get one free" price may have me buy more in the future.

MSM is mighty!
Good product, only drawback is the large size. I prefer to take capsules but Swanson brand does not offer them. Despite the size, I still take daily and it does help a lot.

My husband uses this product, but I prefer the powder. We both notice a difference using MSM keeping us feeling young.

Pills to large, hard to swallow
March 8, 2013
Love the size. Unfair to rate badly due to size!
These are clearly marked 1500 mg and Swanson does a good job of showing the size of all of their capsules and tablets. So I find it very unfair for other customers to rate the product as less than Excellent just because they didn't check the size and potency. Many of us don't want to take so many pills to get the potency we need, so this works nicely. I actually wish a 2,000 mg size was available, because I have no problem swallowing them. I be that the people complaining about not being able to swallow them have no problem swallowing chunks of food 2-3 times larger than these tablets. Do your research and then buy one of the Swanson brand MSM products.

Great product with even more benefits!
Ok, by now you should know this is a horse sized product so if you can't swallow look for something comparable that you can swallow.
I can swallow these and boy are they worth it. I have been taking twice a day for joints and mobility. However, my husband and best friend have both noticed that I've been doing something different. They swear I look younger and want to know what makeup, skin care etc I'm using.
Not doing a darned thing different other than taking this product than can explain it. And, this morning I actually see what they are talking about - my skin is glowing! Oh, and yes, my joints feel it too.
Another keeper from Swanson's!

Tablets are huge. I liked the liquid better.

Love the effects of this MSM product, but the pill is a bit large and sometimes I had trouble getting it down. Reordered MSM today in capsule form and expect it to be a bit easier to swallow. The benefits are so good that I would go back to this one if I had to. Thank you, Swanson, for great products.

My fault, I did not realize these were LARGE tablets and not capsules. Usually buy the caps...
January 31, 2013
It works and it's wonderful to have to take only 2 pills a day...very easy!
January 31, 2013
I would never have ordered this had I been aware that they were large tabs. I always prefer and order capsules. These are so large that they barely fit in a pill cutter and the pieces caught in my throat. I will eventally order the capsules from Swanson (great company, quality products) though I will read reviews from now on. I feel that the fact that they are tabs could be emphasized more

Pills to big and have to take 2
Pills are WAY too BIG and I did not realize to get the 1500 mg you have to take 2 (that was my mistake) for not checking the label. I have been taking these for about 2 months and do not feel they are helping as much as other brands have.

If a pill is hard to swallow and I can certainly understand that, get a mortar and pestle, (puchased in the kitchen dept.) grind them up and add them to juice.
Don't take a chance with choking on them.
