ORGANIC SULFUR: A Cellular Warrior Needed To Eliminate Toxins, Oxygenate Cells, Protect Your Health & Ward Off Disease
(Originally written by Crusador)
If you want to defend yourself against all of the toxic contaminants we are exposed to daily and supply one of the foundational minerals your body needs to build, repair and cleanse your cells, then you need to learn more about organic sulfur (MSM) and start using it daily. There is no other mineral or nutrient on the market that works this well for protecting, building and restoring health – GUARANTEED!!! The truth is if there were only one nutrient you couldn’t live without this would be the one. Sulfur is analogous to a locomotive freight train. It is the driver of just about everything. Without sulfur in your diet everything else sits on the tracks like a bunch of box cars without a locomotive to pull them down the tracks (i.e. the cells).
Organic sulfur (MSM) has become one of the hottest selling nutritional supplements in the dietary supplement industry as more and more people become aware of how effective it works. Many who have begun a daily regimen of organic sulfur that suffer with health problems believe that its results borderline on the miraculous. Sulfur is a transport and delivery mineral. It is needed to make everything else you put into your body work more effectively and efficiently. Organic sulfur helps to usher all of the other minerals and nutrients into the cells that your body needs while playing an important role in eliminating all of the wastes that don’t belong there.
Cellular Toxicities and Cellular Insufficiencies are the two primary pillars that hold up the ‘Temple of Disease’. If you want to knock that temple down and rebuild a new one that sustains long-term health there is no other nutrient that can reverse the damage like organic sulfur can. Organic sulfur is a Cellular Warrior!
Sulfur is found in the cells of all living organisms (plant & animal). Sulfur plays a critical role in the oxygenation and detoxification of all cells. Simply put, the ‘Sulfur Cycle’ was broken over 70 years ago when farmers switched from using manure as a fertilizer to chemical based fertilizers and also began spraying the farmlands of the world with toxic pesticides and herbicides. What few knew at the time is that these ‘man-made’ agents would inhibit sulfur in agriculture, and in the human body, eventually leading to a global disease epidemic. The fact is almost every person alive today is sulfur deficient.
Organic sulfur has a long history as a healing agent. For centuries mankind has soaked in sulfur-rich springs to help heal a variety of ailments. It is the presence of sulfur that is believed to assist in easing joint pain. Sulfur is a naturally occurring mineral that provides the body with essential sulfur and methyl groups that are used in the healing and repair processes. It is these healing and repairing abilities that make it an optimal choice to recover from soft tissue and joint injuries, and a wide array of other health challenges.
We Are Undergoing an Unprecedented Chemical Assault & Organic Sulfur Is the Antidote
Sulfur has 16 electrons and 16 protons, which makes it among the most reactive elements on the periodic chart. There are very few things this mineral won’t combine with and either neutralize from doing your body harm, or activate to make more effective. Sulfur makes cell membranes more porous so oxygen can flood in to push out the toxic materials our bodies are assaulted with.
There are literally hundreds of toxic chemicals dumped into our water supplies that we are exposed to daily by either showering, bathing or drinking that contaminate our cells, organs and systems. There are a wide array of pesticides and herbicides sprayed on most of our foods, and almost everyone in the world has residues that show up in their blood when pathology testing is done. There are thousands of toxic chemicals added to our foods and beverages that we consume daily. There are all sorts of chemicals we are exposed to inside new cars and homes. There are thousands of different chemicals that absorb into our bodies from deodorant, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, makeup, lipstick, shaving cream, aftershave, perfume, cologne, laundry detergent, etc. All across the world people spray their lawns with chemicals regularly to either make it grow better or to control pests. Pesticides are sprayed inside homes, businesses, airplanes and hotels to control bugs. In many places throughout the country regular sprayings for mosquitoes are commonplace. This usually takes place at night with a specially equipped truck just driving through neighborhoods spraying pesticides all over the place. There is massive pollution from industry and all the exhaust from vehicles on the road. We are being constantly sprayed through the air with toxic metals and materials due to some form of covert government operation in the form of chemtrails to geoengineer the weather.
Unless you take precautionary measures to get all of this this crud out of your body you will be taken out early. That’s why use of organic sulfur is so important. It is the single most protective nutrient there is to defend against this assault.
What Health Conditions Can Organic Sulfur Be Used For?
Organic sulfur (MSM) is used for: chronic pain, osteoarthritis, joint inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, bursitis, tendonitis, musculoskeletal pain, muscle cramps, leg cramps, migraine headaches, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, hangover, allergies, parasitic infections of the intestinal and urogenital tracts, scleroderma, scar tissue, stretch marks, sun/wind burn, eye inflammation, oral hygiene, periodontal disease, wounds, cuts and abrasions, chronic constipation, sour stomach, ulcers, diverticulosis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), mood elevation, obesity, poor circulation, type 2 diabetes, liver problems, Alzheimer’s disease, lung disorders including emphysema and pneumonia, autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and just about any ailment known to man. It is either taken orally in fluid or capsules or applied to the skin for these uses.
Where Are Organic Sulfur Crystals (MSM) Derived From?
Organic sulfur crystals are derived from pure liquid DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide). DMSO contains a high concentration of naturally occurring bioavailable organic sulfur that can be utilized at the cellular level. Most forms of sulfur found in nature are toxic to the human body and cannot be ingested. Organic sulfur is one of the only ways to get bioavailable sulfur to the cells of your body through a nutritional supplement to obtain the incredible health benefits.
What Is DMSO Used For?
Dimethyl Sulfoxide is used in a wide variety of industrial and pharmaceutical applications that far exceed anything it is used for in the nutritional supplement industry. It was almost by accident that DMSO was discovered to be a tremendously beneficial supplement for human health thanks in part to people like Stanley Jacobs. An entire story on DMSO and its health benefits could be written separate from this article. A simple search on Google regarding DMSO and what it can do will amaze you as far as what has been reported from the management of pain to the treatment of cancer. DMSO and MSM both work in a very similar manner due in large part to the sulfur it contains, except DMSO is used topically and MSM is used primarily internally. DMSO transports compounds through the skin and body extremely rapidly and effectively. A simple explanation is that DMSO and MSM act as a vector by helping to absorb sulfur and just about anything else it comes in contact with into the body.
One of the biggest purchasers of DMSO is the pharmaceutical industry. There are over 700 pharmaceutical products that require DMSO. Most topical pharmaceuticals contain DMSO and without it they wouldn’t be nearly as effective. DMSO and MSM are one of the greatest medical breakthroughs of our time and sadly, very few people know about it or use these compounds to protect their health.
How Is Organic Sulfur Obtained From DMSO?
Organic sulfur (MSM) is obtained through a chemical synthesis that involves mixing pure liquid based DMSO and Hydrogen Peroxide together. This creates a chemical reaction that forms a new molecule called Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). Once this new molecule forms it must be purified so it can be used as a supplement for human health. There are several methods used to do this were you are left with a pure sulfur crystal.
“After reaction, a purification process is needed to remove any impurities from the MSM. Two commonly accepted purification processes used in most chemical and food processing plants are distillation and crystallization. Distillation is the favored process for producing high purity MSM, where heat is used to separate compounds by their unique boiling points. MSM has a boiling point of 478ºF. The distillation of MSM results in a very pure product. Conversely, purification by crystallization can be adversely affected by the use of impure solvents, potentially leaving undesirable or toxic by-products.
If MSM is not manufactured properly, or is produced in a facility that makes multiple products with improper sanitation procedures, contamination is likely. There may also be a chance that impurities (such as heavy metals or chlorinated hydrocarbons) from the water used in the synthesis and crystallization process will remain in the final product.
Other factors that determine the purity of synthesized MSM is consistent product formulation and strict process control procedures. A good MSM manufacturer uses in-process control and rigorous product testing to ensure the product is indeed pure.
The nutrition industry has established standards for testing MSM material so that all manufacturers use the same types of procedures and instruments for testing. These standards are developed by AOAC International, an independent, NIH-sponsored, FDA-endorsed international community of analytical chemists. Industry guidelines recommend that raw material and finished products manufacturers use these accepted methods to ensure consistent quality. These methods establish ‘a gold standard’ by which all products can be uniformly measured.”
Why Is MSM Often Referred To As Organic Sulfur And Is It Certified Organic?
MSM is chemically referred to as “Organic Sulfur” because it contains a stable source of biological sulfur (34%) that is non-toxic and safe for human use. It is a food grade form of sulfur that works at the cellular level as opposed to inorganic forms of sulfur which are toxic to the body. In chemistry, and as defined by government health agencies such as NIH and FDA, MSM is referred to synonymously as organic sulfur. It’s like calling water by its chemical name H2O. It is not “certified organic” from the standpoint of a third party USDA accredited organic certifying agency certifying it as organic.
What Are The Differences Between Sulfur On The Market and What Should A Consumer Look For?
A significant percentage of MSM on the market is imported from China. As mentioned above, there are two primary methods of obtaining MSM crystals – distillation and crystallization. Distillation is a much better method that produces the purest product. Crystallization is much cheaper and that is the way most foreign suppliers make their product. There are only a few companies that make a distilled version of MSM where all the raw materials from start to finish are 100% U.S. derived and manufactured. These versions tend to be more expensive though, so most supplement companies resort to the cheapest grade of material they can obtain, which is usually the crystallization Chinese versions. While this is not a good reason in and of itself to distrust these sources of MSM, the fact is it is hard to entirely trust what the Chinese produce because they have been busted time and time again for producing inferior, contaminated products, including all the infant formulas and dairy products that poisoned people with melamine.
The other issue with most MSM found on the marketplace is that it is mixed with binders, fillers and various excipients because it is used in blends with tablets and capsules instead of just being sold as a pure crystal with nothing else added. There is ample evidence that shows that these things can interfere with sulfur uptake in the body to some degree. The research has proven that the most effective way to take organic sulfur is in its purest crystal form with nothing added to it and dissolved in water.
Why Are We Sulfur Deficient?
The simplest explanation for the sulfur deficiency is the use of chemical fertilizers and toxic pesticides and herbicides, although food fortification and processing cannot be looked over either. These chemical agents have broken the sulfur cycle in farming and cause sulfur deficiency in our bodies in two ways.
1. Plants are no longer getting adequate sulfur from the soil because these chemical agents kill off the beneficial microbes in the soil that are needed to transport sulfur from the soil into the plants. Simply put, lack of sulfur in plants means lack of sulfur in our diets.
2. We are all exposed to a wide array of pesticides, herbicides and chemicals daily that have the same effect on our bodies that they have on plants. Not only are we not getting enough sulfur in our diets to counter this assault, what little we get is rendered almost ineffective by our constant ingestion of chemicals which interferes with the sulfur in our bodies.
Organic sulfur is supposed to be prominent in all living organisms; however, it is only present in very minute/trace quantities—not enough to be of benefit. That fact, combined with the horrendous increase of stress and the toxins our bodies must contend with make organic sulfur crucial to our health. It is not difficult to see why disease is escalating exponentially. If a group of sadistic control freaks who believe in population control had a master plan to sicken humanity and kill off the population with disease the first thing they would do is implement protocols to disrupt the sulfur cycle. Bioavailable organic sulfur has been consistently overlooked or ignored as an essential and fundamental nutrient required for healthy cells and unless it is addressed there will never be an end to the disease epidemic occurring. It’s time to get on the sulfur expressway and off the train of disease!
Is There A Connection To Essential Amino Acid Production And Organic Sulfur?
Sulfur is a prime building material used throughout the body to make a variety of chemicals from systemic enzymes, collagen, amino acids, hormones, neurotransmitters, ATP, and so much more. At least four essential amino acids in the body are ‘sulfur containing’ amino acids – methionine, cysteine, homocysteine, and taurine. This means that without adequate sulfur in the body deficiencies in these amino acids may be prevalent as well.
According to the U.S. NIH:
“Methionine is the initiating amino acid in the synthesis of virtually all eukaryotic proteins. Cysteine, by virtue of its ability to form disulfide bonds, plays a crucial role in protein structure and in protein-folding pathways. Methionine metabolism begins with its activation to S-adenosylmethionine. This is a cofactor of extraordinary versatility, playing roles in methyl group transfer, 5’-deoxyadenosyl group transfer, polyamine synthesis, ethylene synthesis in plants, and many others. In animals, the great bulk of S-adenosylmethionine is used in methylation reactions. S-Adenosylhomocysteine, which is a product of these methyltransferases, gives rise to homocysteine. Homocysteine may be remethylated to methionine or converted to cysteine by the transsulfuration pathway. Methionine may also be metabolized by a transamination pathway. This pathway, which is significant only at high methionine concentrations, produces a number of toxic end products. Cysteine may be converted to such important products as glutathione and taurine. Taurine is present in many tissues at higher concentrations than any of the other amino acids. It is an essential nutrient for cats.”
How Does Organic Sulfur Detoxify The Body?
Organic sulfur is one of the most powerful and effective solutions for detoxifying the entire body from head to toe because it oxygenates your cells, alkalizes your blood and removes toxins and heavy metals that lead to cellular malfunction and disease. Sulfur lets oxygen in by increasing the permeability of cell membranes, making it easier for nutrients to be absorbed by the cells, and takes the trash out. Organic sulfur reacts with toxins, affects inactivation and speeds excretion. In laymen’s terms, organic sulfur drastically increases the ability of cells to excrete toxic waste products. Many health practitioners working with organic sulfur have gone on record to say that it is the most powerful detoxifying agent they have ever worked with.
Sulfur, in the form of sulfates, plays an essential role in cellular detoxification. Organic sulfur forms 146 different chemical combinations. Sulfur will combine with all metals except gold and platinum to form inorganic sulfides. Inorganic sulfides convert these hazardous toxic metals into non-hazardous, stable forms which are safely ushered out of the body. By bonding with all the toxic heavy metals, sulfur can safely chelate and remove these toxic metals from our bodies.
Sulfur attaches to toxins to form a sulfate, i.e.: mercury sulfate, lead sulfate, barium sulfate, arsenic sulfate, aluminum sulfate, strontium sulfate, etc. Since sulfur is a mineral that cannot be stored, it must exit the body, and it pulls (“chelates”) all these dangerous toxic heavy metals out with it.
Given the massive chemical exposure we are all being assaulted with daily, including the aerosolized toxic heavy metals being sprayed on us via geoengineering, you can’t afford not to drink sulfur at least twice a day. Sulfur also neutralizes acid caused by stress that’s dumped into your small intestine to help you be very calm and grounded.
What Effect Does Organic Sulfur Have On Arthritis, Inflammation & Joint Pain?
“The best-researched use of MSM is in the area of joint pain – reducing discomfort and pain that arises from degenerative conditions including osteoarthritis and/or from physical indications, such as tendonitis or joint sprains and hyperextension.
There have been several studies looking at the efficacy of MSM in the fight against joint pain including one recent double-blind trial that was published in a top-tier osteoarthritis journal. In addition, MSM has been the subject of dozens of animal and test-tube studies to determine its effects…
While more specific research is needed, it is believed that because MSM contains sulfur, a vital element in the composition of virtually all connective tissue, it is thought to help repair damaged connective tissue (for example, in joints) rather than simply suppressing symptoms associated with joint degeneration.
MSM is thought to deliver sulfur to the body in a useable way. Sulfur helps maintain the structure of connective tissue by forming cross-linkages through disulfide bonds, i.e., sulfur strengthens the tissues that make up the joint.
Sulfur is critical to good joint health. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are the fundamental building blocks of joint cartilage, and GAG molecules are linked together in chains by disulfide bonds. As the name implies, these bonds are between two sulfur atoms. The disulfide bridges reduce conformational flexibility of GAG chains, making cartilage firm and resilient. Cartilage integrity is thus a sulfur-dependent state.
MSM contains a lot of sulfur – 34% by weight. While more research is needed to determine how the body absorbs the sulfur it needs from MSM, preliminary studies in mice and in horses suggest that the sulfur in MSM is incorporated into proteins and into joint tissues.”

Can Organic Sulfur Help People Suffering With Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia?
Yes. Organic sulfur has shown to work wonders in greatly minimizing, and in some cases eliminating CFS and Fibromyalgia. Studies have shown that individuals with CFS and Fibromyalgia often have protein and sulfur deficiencies. A protein deficiency leads to an enzyme deficiency since the amino acids that are found in protein are used to build enzymes in the body. As we’ve already discussed, organic sulfur plays a key role in the production of essential amino acids and systemic enzymes, so that in and of itself is enough proof that sulfur will help with these problems.
While sulfur is a vital building block of healthy, elastic connective tissue, joints and skin, it is also crucial for mitochondrial energy generation. People who suffer from fibromyalgia often say they wake up in the morning feeling like they’ve been run over by a truck. Fibromyalgia may be part of chronic fatigue syndrome, with pain being a more prominent symptom than fatigue. It causes generalized pain and aching throughout the body, morning stiffness, fatigue, disturbed sleep, and tender spots on the body.
Some of the symptoms that may be improved by organic sulfur (MSM) include the following:
- helping restore sulfur deficiencies that can lead to cells that are impermeable by sugar, which causes blood glucose level imbalance
- reducing muscle soreness and cramps
- reducing the symptoms of arthritis and controlling degeneration
- allowing toxins and allergens to be cleansed from the body by increasing cell permeability and reducing water pressure in cells
- inhibits pain impulses due to anti-inflammatory properties
- improving and balancing the immune system
- increasing blood supply and circulation in the body

Can Organic Sulfur Help Alleviate Allergies?
Organic sulfur is well documented and proven to be one of the most effective natural solutions for ridding or greatly reducing almost all forms of allergies, whether they are caused by dust, pet dander, pollen, or pollution. There are a number of reasons why this is so, but the main one is that organic sulfur works incredibly well at detoxifying the body on a multitude of fronts. There are volumes of documented research proving that the massive chemical assault we are under is directly responsible for a dramatic increase in a wide variety of allergies. By helping to rid the body of these toxic substances sulfur helps all the cells of the body work better and keep the system cleansed, thus leading to a reduction or elimination of allergies.
Organic sulfur binds to the receptor site of mucosa and makes the mucosa impermeable to irritants including allergens and parasites. Sulfur has a tremendous natural antihistamine effect on the body too. Some of the most noticeable benefits with organic sulfur are with seasonal allergies as the results can generally be felt within a few days. Following the daily recommendations of ingesting sulfur every 12 hours can keep most allergy symptoms at bay. Organic sulfur is a safe, naturally occurring supplement and has shown no toxicity in clinical trials and this makes it a much better choice compared to potentially liver destructive allergy drugs that have potential long-term side effects and generally make you groggy and foggy.
If you’re a skeptic and you want documented proof of organic sulfur working for allergies before jumping on board then you will be interested in knowing that a clinical trial was actually conducted and it is posted on the U.S. NIH website at this address: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12006124
Here is a synopsis of the study:
RESULTS: Day 7 upper and total respiratory symptoms were reduced significantly from baseline (p < 0.01 and p < 0.005, respectively). Lower respiratory symptoms were significantly improved from baseline by week 3 (p < 0.001). All respiratory improvements were maintained through the 30-day visit. Energy levels increased significantly by day 14 (p < 0.0001); this increase continued through day 30. No significant changes were observed in plasma IgE or histamine levels. The results of this study are promising. It would be worthwhile to conduct a larger, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to establish further if MSM would be a useful agent in the treatment of symptoms associated with SAR.
The results of this study suggest that MSM supplementation of 2,600 mg/day for 30 days may be efficacious in the reduction of symptoms associated with SAR. Furthermore, few side effects are associated with the use of this compound. Recent acute and sub-acute chronic toxicologic data on the same source of MSM as used in this study, further validate the safety of this product.
Can Organic Sulfur Help You Lose Weight?
While limited information exists on organic sulfur being used as a weight loss aid, it is one of the perks your body gets from being on it regularly. Sulfur helps to clean up the digestive system and eliminate toxins and waste in the digestive system and throughout all the cells of your body. Many users notice better bowel eliminations almost immediately once beginning a sulfur regimen. Cleaning up the digestive system and ridding toxins from your cells helps your body across the board to process nutrients and foods more effectively, thus helping to absorb and utilize nutrients at the cellular level. This enhances overall metabolism and better metabolism means more manageable weight.
Sulfur is also an essential mineral that is necessary for a variety of systemic functions, including the production of systemic enzymes. Systemic enzymes are enzymes that are produced not only for digestion, but throughout all the organs and systems of the body. Enzymes are biocatalysts that help to speed up the chemical reactions of the body. There are about 3000 systemic enzymes produced in our body and they have a number of beneficial actions on the overall functioning of the body. Systemic enzymes can boost your efforts in weight loss because it improves digestion and the immune functioning of the body. It also speeds repair of the body and inflammation conditions.
Sulfur is also involved in the creation of at least four essential amino acids and these amino acids contain fat burning properties. Sulfur helps you burn fat by pumping more oxygen into the fat cells to burn them up. You’ll need to exercise more, but sulfur helps you feel like exercising more because it just puts you in a good mood, and when you exercise, it helps you stay out of oxygen debt.
Is Organic Sulfur Beneficial For Dermatology Issues?
“Sulfur is called nature’s ‘beauty mineral’ because it keeps skin smooth and youthful and hair glossy. Sulfur is necessary for the production of collagen and keratin, proteins necessary for the health and maintenance of skin, nails and hair. Several experiments have shown that several dermatological disorders, including those that are allergy-related, respond favorably to a diet supplemented by organic sulfur (MSM). Oral dosages of MSM have shown to be effective against acne, Rosacea, and dry, scaly or itching skin. When used topically in the form of an ointment or lotion, MSM is helpful in treating skin disorders including acne, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, scabies, diaper rash and certain fungal infections. Scars resulting from operations and from burns also respond well to topical application. New scars can heal so perfectly that they are almost invisible. Old scars, too, can improve markedly.”
Can Organic Sulfur Help With Libido?
Surprisingly to many, organic sulfur has a tremendously positive effect on libido. Sulfur helps build and balance essential amino acids, which are needed to build healthy cells and systems, including the endocrine, glandular and hormonal systems. Sulfur helps to modulate and balance hormones in the body. Sulfur helps to increase energy and stamina.
There is a direct correlation to the toxic assault we’re under and the widespread sexual health issues occurring in both men and women, especially with breast and prostate related health issues which are some of the most prevalent. There is a wealth of documented evidence proving that a wide array of the chemicals and toxins we’re exposed to have a gender bending effect on the body. They even have a technical term for them – Xenoestrogens. These are man-made chemicals that have an estrogen-like effect on the body, thus causing men to have more female characteristics and women to have more hormone related issues. This means that if you’re a guy your testosterone levels will decrease while your estrogen levels increase. The result? Low sex drive, lack of stamina, inability to perform, etc. Women experience similar related issues.
One of the many benefits users who start taking organic sulfur notice is a huge improvement in their overall sexual health, including their sex drive. Simply put, when your cells get the nutrients they need to function optimally and the toxic chemicals and trash that are poisoning the body are removed, everything in the body gets recalibrated and functions better, including libido.
Can Organic Sulfur Help Protect The Body From Radiation?
Yes. Very little is ever mentioned about sulfur being a protector against radiation, but it is a very effective mineral that provides whole body protection against radiation poisoning. This is of great importance given the fact that our bodies are exposed to much more radiation than the government or scientists care to admit. The Fukushima nuclear accident has exposed the entire planet to toxic levels of radiation and even though it is off mainstream news, the situation in Japan is still ongoing.
There is low dose radiation exposure also coming from TSA body scanners, X-Rays, CT Scans, cell towers and a wide array of electronic devices too. We cannot ignore the fact that we are all being exposed to low levels of damaging radiation on an ongoing basis. The most recognized source of radiation protection is potassium iodide because it is approved as a treatment to block the thyroid from absorbing radiation. Very little is ever mentioned about organic sulfur though. However, there is a wealth of scientific documentation to support its use as an effective agent to protect the body. This info alone from the US NIH should give you enough support to start using organic sulfur regularly and to make sure you have enough on hand for yourself and loved ones in case of an emergency:
“The inclusion of various sulfur-containing functions in organic molecules yielded compounds having whole-body radiation protection from lethal doses of gamma radiation in animals.”
—Annals of Pharmacotherapy, 1992 Sept.26(9):1144-7.
Can Organic Sulfur Help Restore Digestion & Intestinal Related Disorders?
There’s a popular expression: “what does your gut tell you?” Did you realize that you have a second brain? Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, intuitively understood this over 2000 years ago when he stated that “all illness stems from the gut.”
A healthy person has approximately 4 pounds of beneficial flora that populate the gastrointestinal tract or gut. Unfortunately, the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the types of personal hygiene products and pharmaceutical medications we’ve taken also affects the health of our gut flora. Most often, there’s an imbalance that allows harmful pathogens to overwhelm the beneficial gut flora, thereby causing disease.
When we are born, our gastrointestinal tract is sterile, and is primarily populated with the flora from our mother as we pass through the birth canal and drink her breast milk. In essence, we inherit the health or imbalance of her gut flora. If she has gut dysbiosis, then the child will most likely be born with compromised immunity and may experience a range of symptoms from mild allergies to severe learning disabilities like hyperactivity, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, etc.
The health of the cell is very important, especially our gastrointestinal (GI) cells called enterocytes. In a healthy person, the small intestine usually is neutral in pH, the stomach is very acidic (pH 2.5) and the large intestine is usually around 6.5 pH.
When we’re under stress, we get a huge acid dump into our gut, causing our small intestines to go from neutral to acidic. In the past several years there has been a disturbing phenomenon of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or SIBO5 that colonize the small intestine. According to Nora T. Gedgaudas in Primal Body, Primal Mind, the large intestines and not the small ones were meant to be colonized by bacteria. These rod-shaped bacterial colonies are associated with damaging the lining of the small intestine, and in high enough amounts, produce enough acids that are related to neurological and cognitive symptoms known as “leaky gut syndrome”. Those who suffer from celiac disease, autism, and schizophrenia often share this common symptom of “leaky gut syndrome”. What is surprising is that these rod-shaped bacteria never existed before in humans.
When cells exist in a low pH or acidic environment, their ability to transport oxygen into the cells and remove toxins becomes impaired. The lack of oxygen creates cellular malfunction, and the result is disease such as cancer.
“One study revealed that at least 75% of individuals taking one or more antacids or H2 histamine receptor antagonists against stomach acidity were able to sharply reduce or eliminate such medication within a week of initiating MSM (organic sulfur) as a dietary supplement. In another study, twenty-one subjects with a history of constipation were given 500 mg daily doses of MSM together with 1 gram of ascorbic acid. All subjects with abnormal colon function returned to normal and remained normal while MSM was part of their diet. These studies indicate that MSM often gives more relief from stomach acidity and constipation than commonly prescribed medication. Many people have reported that one of the most exciting and rewarding benefits of taking MSM is the prompt and continued relief from stomach acidity and constipation problems.”
What Role Do Probiotics Play In Making Minerals Work More Effectively In The Body and Can They Help Make Sulfur Work Even Better?
The human digestive system processes nutrients in a similar way that plants process nutrients in the soil. There are a wide variety of soil based nutrients that attach to the roots of plants and work in conjunction with the minerals in the soil so plants can absorb them. Sulfur in the soil is generally in a sulfate form, and microbes change it to sulfide compounds that enter the soil solution and can be taken up by plant roots for growth. The bacterial process changes sulfur to compound forms plants can use.
In plants, sulfur is essential for nitrogen-fixing nodules on legumes, and necessary in the formation of chlorophyll. Plants use sulfur in the processes of producing proteins, amino acids, enzymes and vitamins. Sulfur also helps the plant’s resistance to disease, aids in growth, and in seed formation.
Using chemical based fertilizers and spraying the croplands of the world with toxic pesticides and herbicides can have a damaging effect on these naturally occurring soil based microbes. This causes a wide array of mineral deficiencies in food crops. Big Agri-business came up with a Ban-Aid to solve this problem; they add something called NPK back to the soil. NPK is a solution consisting of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium, the three macro-nutrients most needed by plants that are usually lacking from the soil first because plants use large amounts for their growth and survival. The problem with NPK is that it doesn’t fix the deficiencies of the secondary minerals that are rendered useless by the toxic assault. A plant may grow fine, look healthy and produce a yield with NPK, but the underlying problem of the soil microbes being destroyed thus causing a wide array of other minerals to be deficient has not been fixed.
The same thing happens with our gut flora. Probiotics in the intestinal system are used to process nutrients so your body can obtain what it needs to survive. However, chemicals in the water, pesticides on our foods, antibiotics, and a host of other toxic elements we ingest regularly all damage and destroy intestinal flora. That means that even the best nutrition in the world may not work as well if your gut flora is out of balance.
That’s why it is extremely important to do a regular round of probiotic supplementation. In the case of sulfur, it works incredibly well in almost every person using it, even if they have poor digestive health and damaged intestinal flora. If probiotics are used in conjunction with it, however, this vital mineral will work even more effectively and also help your body absorb and process all the macro and micro minerals and nutrients more effectively, similar to the way it happens with plants.
How Does Organic Sulfur Work With Other Minerals & Nutrients?
A good analogy of how sulfur works in the body and in nature is to go back to the locomotive freight train again. Without the locomotive to pull the train nothing moves. Sulfur is a locomotive. It combines and reacts with everything it comes in contact with and is the key driver of all nutrients, whether it is the transference of them from the soil into plants or from the body into the cells. This is why breaking the sulfur cycle has been so devastating. It causes everything else to break down.
If sulfur isn’t being taken up from the soil into plants in adequate quantities then the plants will be mineral deficient. This results in a wide variety of our foods being mineral deficient. If we aren’t consuming enough sulfur in our diets then we will become mineral deficient, even if we are taking in adequate amounts of nutrition from other sources because sulfur is the locomotive needed to usher these nutrients into the cells of the body. Without enough organic sulfur in your body you are like a hundred box car freight train sitting on the railroad tracks unable to move because the locomotive isn’t attached. If you want to ignite all the cells of your body and truly live at the high state of health and potential that we were created to live at then organic sulfur is an absolute must in your diet. You can spend thousands of dollars on exotic herbs, minerals and supplements and yes, to some degree or another they will all work. However, adding organic sulfur to your regimen will be like putting all of these nutrients on steroids. Sulfur is an activator. Without it, nothing works right, whether it’s in farming or with human health.
Is Organic Sulfur The Same As Sulfa Drugs and Sulfites? I’m Allergic to Sulfites. Does This Mean I Will Be Allergic to MSM?
Do not get confused between the two. MSM provides organic sulfur and is a nutrient. Sulfa-based drugs, also known as sulfonamides, do not occur naturally and are used as antibiotics. The sulfa molecule is much larger and can cause severe reactions in some individuals. An estimated half-million people are sulfite sensitive in the U.S. Most often they are asthmatic adults and predominantly women. While many people are allergic to sulfa drugs, no similar reactions have ever been reported with MSM. A third sulfur-containing compound, known as sulfites, is a form of preservative that can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. MSM does not contain sulfites, and should not cause a reaction in sulfite-sensitive individuals. The human body produces sulfites in its normal metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids. Sulfite compounds have been used for more than three hundred years and are generally considered safe.
When Should I Start Taking Organic Sulfur?
Immediately! Hopefully you now understand the urgency of getting a steady supply of organic sulfur (MSM) into your body, especially in light of the toxic assault we’re all under, including those coming from airborne contaminants many around the world are reporting in the form of chemtrails. It is imperative that you watch the full length movie “What In The World Are They Spraying” to fully grasp why sulfur is needed by everyone, everyday! Everyone will benefit greatly from using organic sulfur daily because it is a critically important mineral that cannot be made by our bodies and is needed in every cell for proper oxygenation and effective detoxification.
How Do I Take Organic Sulfur?
The amount a person takes or needs can vary on a case by case basis. The general guide is to use 1 teaspoon (4 grams) twice daily, preferably between meals or on an empty stomach, so nothing interferes with its full utilization in the body. Amounts can be raised or lowered accordingly depending on your state of health and the results you are or aren’t experiencing. It is recommended to start with 1-2 teaspoons per day in the first week and gradually work up to 6 to 8 teaspoons. It is not uncommon to experience headaches or mild detoxification effects in the beginning stages as a majority of people are severely sulfur deficient and toxic. This is why we recommend gradually building up to higher dosages. If your body requires higher amounts you can administer it in smaller doses over the course of the day to allow your body to adjust.
How Soon After Using Organic Sulfur Will I Notice Results?
Since everybody is different, and people’s ailments vary in severity, everyone reacts to organic sulfur at a different rate. Some users dealing with serious discomfort from pain have reported pain relief overnight. Others feel a difference within a week, while others don’t get results until being on it for a month or longer. Generally, however, most people notice something after just a few days of using organic sulfur the way we recommend, which is different from any other recommendations you will find with any other MSM supplement.
Within a week of using organic sulfur one of the first things almost everyone will notice is a healthier tone and shine to their facial complexion. People suffering with serious sinus and allergy problems tend to see a great improvement, and in some cases complete elimination in less than a week. If you are taking organic sulfur to detoxify your body of heavy metals it could take longer to see results as some of these problems stem back years and are imbedded deep into tissues. The simple fact is very few people will say that they don’t notice a benefit from regular use of organic sulfur. In some cases the benefits could be very dramatic depending on the severity of your health challenges.
One of the best recommendations we can offer is to take a photograph of your face before beginning a regimen and then take periodic photos over the course of the year and compare the results. Once your friends and loved ones see the difference they too will be begging you to tell them what you have done to show such improvements.
Who Can Take Organic Sulfur?
Just about everyone! Organic sulfur has been shown to be safe for all people, including children and pregnant woman although we recommend consulting your healthcare provider in these cases to determine suitability. Organic sulfur (MSM) is not similar to inorganic sulfides, sulfites, and sulfates which many people are allergic to. There are no serious reports of sulfur causing any damage or discomfort when taken in the dosage amounts described above. There is over a 30 year history of organic sulfur use showing it to be one of the safest nutrients to ingest even in large quantities without any toxic side effects. No liver damage has been documented due to taking it either. Organic sulfur is also safe for people taking medications. It should be noted, however, that organic sulfur (MSM) can thin blood so it should be approved by a licensed doctor when used in conjunction with blood thinning medication. Attempts to kill mice and rats failed to reach a toxic level even at 200 grams, or almost half a pound a day.
What If I take Too Much Sulfur?
If you took too much into your body it will simply be excreted safely through the gastrointestinal system. The most common complaint reported when too much is taken is headaches.
Why Is It Important To Drink Plenty of Water While Using Organic Sulfur?
Proper hydration is critical since the oxygen for cellular metabolism is present in the water we drink. We use the rule of 64 ounces of water per 100 lbs. per day which means a 200 LB. person needs 128 ounces of water per day (one gallon). Since everybody is different, and peoples’ ailments vary in severity, everyone reacts to organic sulfur at a different rate. Since organic sulfur helps to detoxify the body you want to make sure you are properly hydrated so you can easily flush these cellular wastes from the body.
Why Is Mountain Well-Being Organic Sulfur Considered To Be A Superior Source of Sulfur Compared To Other MSM Products On The Market?
Mountain Well-Being Organic Sulfur is guaranteed to be 99.9% pure MSM. It is the cleanest MSM on the market. It is also 100% American sourced and American made. Lots of MSM on the market is actually imported from countries like China where quality could be a concern.
The biggest difference with our Sulfur is that it contains absolutely no binders, fillers, flow agents or other ingredients, including silicone dioxide. All of these ingredients interfere with proper absorption of sulfur in the body. Most MSM is found in tablets and capsules containing these agents so you’re simply throwing your money down away using them. The few pure powder versions on the market are usually mixed with flow agents so it can be run on machines during packing and this greatly hinders the effectiveness as well.
Our Organic Sulfur is manufactured under stringent US regulations. It is in compliance with cGMP guidelines and is ISO 9001:2000 certified. It is also third party quality tested as yet another element of our commitment to providing a superior product to the user.
Many overseas manufacturers use a method of crystallization to make their MSM, which is generally regarded as a sub-par process compared to distillation. We use heat to separate our MSM from any impurity that may be present, which gives us the purest product on the market. Then we do it again. Rest assured, when you buy Organic Sulfur from Mountain Well-Being you only get the best!
