Sulfur is essential for healthy joints, smooth skin, glossy hair, hard nails and collagen synthesis. It is critical to protein metabolism. Sulfur is found in every cell of the human body. Sulfur is a crucial component of our tissues, hormones, vitamins, enzymes, antibodies and antioxidants. We simply cannot maintain good health without it. Large amounts of sulfur are found in joints, skin, hair, and nails. There is a minimum concentration of sulfur that must be maintained for healthy bodily function and structure. The body uses sulfur to continually create healthy new cells to replace old ones. Sulfur makes cells permeable, ensuring that nutrients are delivered into the cell and that toxins and waste products are removed.
Every time the body removes invading toxins from the cell, it also removes the sulfur compound that neutralizes the toxins. This is why sulfur supplementation is so vital to daily nutrition.
Sulfur is also important for proper metabolism of carbohydrates and adequate uptake of sugar molecules necessary for energy.
Symptoms of Deficiency:
Deficiencies will only really happen if a diet is deprived of protein, when foods are grown in sulfur-depleted soil, or from a poorly planned vegan diet.
Food High in Sulfur:
Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, fish, poultry, meats, nuts, garlic, onions, leeks and eggs are good sources of sulfur.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!
