You’re probably familiar with sulfur as a natural element but did you know that Organic Sulfur (also called MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane) is absolutely vital to health? Sulfur is one of the basic building blocks of vibrant health, essential for maintaining everything from youthful skin and joints to a healthy digestive system.
We don’t eat a large diet of foods rich in organic sulfur like people used to. For most of human history, we ate fruits and vegetables fresh from the ground and did not have to give a second thought to getting this essential nutrient. However, food storage, transport, processing, cooking, even washing and drying, disperse and degrade MSM. Now due to our modern lifestyle, we have lost access to the organic sulfur our bodies expect. Also our need for sulfur maybe greater due to the stresses of air pollution and degradation of our soil and water, so it has become essential to make sure we do get enough for optimal health, such as by supplementing our diets with bio-available sulfur.
Our Organic Sulfur, is safe for both people and pets in both the pill form and the powder in a tub that will last you well over a month supply. Even though Sulfur and MSM is found in small quantities in food, we recommend adding our Organic Sulfur to your daily nutrition program as the best way to ensure you get sufficient amounts.
OK, so shall we talk about the Benefits of Organic Sulfur and MSM?
1- Sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in the body, about half being concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones, and is essential for life. Sulfur makes up vital amino acids used to create protein for cells, tissues, hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. The body uses up its store daily so it must be continually replenished for optimal health and nutrition.
2-Sulfur is needed for insulin production. Insulin controls carbohydrate metabolism, but insufficient sulfur makes it harder for the pancreas to produce enough insulin, and makes cells less able to absorb things from the blood, contributing to blood sugar problems.
3-Sulfur detoxifies at the cellular level and relieves ache, pains and stiffness of the joints and muscles. Healthy cells can absorb adequate nutrients while releasing toxins and wastes. Sulfur affects this by helping your body build strong breathable cell walls that properly balance cell pressure. Having enough sulfur helps your body to remove toxins that may suffocate the cells.
4-Sulfur supports and builds flexible cells in the arteries and veins – the opposite of “hardening of the arteries”. Elastic, “breathable” blood vessel tissues are able to pass oxygen and nutrients through their walls to nourish the rest of the body and handle the body’s blood flow without stress.
Sulfur keeps your complexion clear and youthful and hair glossy and smooth. Collagen production in your body depends on sulfur to create healthy skin and heal scars. When you have enough sulfur in your body, your skin and hair are more flexible, softer, and smoother.
5-MSM has an amazing anti-parasitic action. When parasites attach to someone’s intestinal lining, they can live, reproduce and leach nutrients from the body indefinitely. Organic sulfur blocks parasites by competing for receptor sites on the mucous membrane. When parasites can not attach themselves, they are simply flushed out of the system with the excess MSM.
6-MSM has anti-allergic properties. MSM has an ability to bind to mucuous membranes and form a natural block against allergens. Another way MSM can alleviate allergies is through detoxification, elimination of free radicals, and improvement of cell permeability.
7-MSM and Vitamin C. Your body uses organic sulfur (MSM) along with Vitamin C to create new, healthy cells and connective tissue. Organic sulfur helps determine how flexible the bond is between the cells. An adequate supply of MSM and Vitamin C supports healthy cell regeneration. As your new cells are created, MSM is incorporated into the bonds that make up cells walls. The result is the creation of cell walls that are better able to absorb nutrients.
8-MSM is 34% sulfur, making it the richest source of bio-available organic sulfur. MSM is safe, non-allergenic and easily digestible as a food.
Take 1 teaspoon per 100 lbs body weight twice daily. Just put it in a glass water bottle or jar and let it sit at room temperature to dissolve, overnight works great. Then you can drink it first thing in the morning and again later mid-day. Drink LOTS of water. You can give the dissolved sulfur/water mix a small squeeze of lemon to mask the slightly bitter taste if you like, though most people get used to it quickly, especially since you may feel increased energy shortly after drinking it. It is preferable to take MSM Sulfur on an empty stomach, so nothing interferes with its full, fast utilization in the body. If you take it with food or other supplements, some of it will combine with the those for less effect.
