    Default Long term MSM and ulcers?

    Hey guys!
    As I have been doing my research on MSM, I have read that long-term use will cause ulcers? Can anyone verify this for me??

    I've actually read just the opposite, that it helps ulcers when combined with aloe vera juice.

    Additionally, is it safe for pregnant mares?

    I can't find any literature immediately, but I've always been of the opinion it's the other way around.

    I consulted with two vets from different clinics about what I could give my arthritic ulcer-prone guy.
    The answer from both was MSM.

    I have heard both ways as far as it is safe for pregnant mares. No help there.

    Personal experience, I have had my mini on MSM for the last 13 years and he doesn't have any effects from the long term use. He's 27 now and feeling great.
