Sulfur is found naturally in foods like Cruciferous Vegetables,
Protein Foods, Allium Vegetables ( garlic, onions, & like ), and eggs. But like many of the foods we eat, they grow in depleted soil and so are not nutrient dense as they should be.
Supplementation is necessary today as we are not living in optimal conditions. The need for sulfur/MSM increases as we age. B4B - Basics4Balance offers a high quality, organic sulfur. The good stuff - the really good stuff. They know the difference and strive to bring you supplements that they themselves take.
Right now I am putting myself through a rigorous, but gentle detox. I'm using L-Malic Acid, MSM, detox baths, fascia blasting, and tons of water to flush. I'm feeling good. Energy levels way up, not feeling as stiff, and my mood is staying up even though stress is high.
Take a look through this list of benefits.
Benefits of MSM
1. MSM helps our bodies absorb more nutrients (vitamins and minerals).
2. MSM increases oxygen availability to the body.
3. MSM helps increase energy.
Energy levels increase with MSM because it helps make the cell walls more permeable. Our cell walls get thicker and more rigid with age; this tends to create a lessening of the amount of nutrients and oxygen that can enter the cell through the cell wall. Also, toxins which get stored in the cell get trapped within the cells because of the lower permeability of the cell wall. When MSM goes into the body the permeability of the cell walls greatly increases, enhancing the absorption of nutrients and oxygen and helping release the toxins which were stuck in cells. When these toxins leave the body, it helps to increase our energy.
4. MSM helps the body eliminate toxins including lactic acid build-up from strenuous exercise.
Drinking plenty of water is very important for anyone wishing to have good health. The fact that MSM detoxifies means that you need to keep water moving into the body so that the toxins can be eliminated without stressing other organs of the body, such as the kidneys.
5. MSM helps to dramatically reduces recuperation time from strenuous exercise and long hours of work.
6. MSM helps relieve muscular aches and pains.
7. MSM helps reduce inflammation due to injury or inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.
8. MSM, together with Vitamin C (a free radical scavenger) helps the body build healthy new cells.
9. MSM, along with Vitamin C, helps reduce scar tissue and wrinkles, and helps keep the skin more elastic.
10. MSM, along with Vitamin C, helps the hair and nails grow stronger and faster.
11. MSM has been shown to improve mental alertness.
12. MSM has been proven to help in the reduction and even the total elimination of allergies.
When MSM is added to the diet, anti-allergy medication may be sharply reduced or eliminated.
13. MSM reduces headaches, cramps and muscle pain caused by hormonal imbalances, for example, PMS.
14. MSM helps relieve constipation.
15. MSM has been shown to help reduce and even eliminate snoring.
16. MSM helps reduces eye membrane irritation (when MSM in a water solution is applied).
Anything on this list that you live with? Maybe you're sulfur deficient.
