You may want to try adding 2000 to 3000 mg of Ester-C or vitamin C a day to see if that doesn't loosen things up for you.
As to the mechanism of the problem, I can't really say because some people say that MSM has made them more regular than they used to be. So why some are affected one way, and others the opposite way, I don't know.
: There is a thread below titled-Will too much MSM cause constipation? I thought I would start a new thread however.
: It seems a lot of people on this board, myself included, have msm induced constipation. I have been taking it off and on now for the last few years. A month ago I started taking it again at 15 grams once a day and now a month later my bowel seems to have become completely inactive!
: Does anybody understand the mechanism behind this? I am drinking a lot of water and taking other supplements such as cod liver oil, coconut oil, primal defense, and perfect food powder. My skin seems to have improved as a side benefit, but this irregularity may cause me to stop taking the msm.
: I'd like to know why the msm is doing this?
