Sulfur (mineral)

Sulfur is an essential mineral for the human body. It plays an important role in many biochemical processes.

What is sulfur used for?

Sulfur is an essential element for all forms of life. It is an important component of more than 150 enzymes, as well as vitamins, cofactors, and hormones. Sulfur is also needed for the formation of protein molecules, which are the building blocks of all cells and tissues. 

Although sulfur can be obtained through the diet, it is also naturally produced by the body. 

How much sulfur is needed daily?

Most adults need about 1000 milligrams of sulfur per day. This can be achieved through diet and, if necessary, supplements.

What to do in case of a sulfur deficiency?

Sulfur deficiency is relatively rare, but can occur in people who consume very little sulfur-containing foods. 

MSM powder, rich in sulfur and very healthy!

MSM stands for Methylsulfonylmethane, a pure white crystalline powder that easily dissolves in liquid substances. It is created by the evaporation of small particles from the ocean. The evaporated substance rises to the upper atmosphere and then falls back to the earth via rain. MSM powder naturally provides a sulfur supplement. MSM naturally occurs in rainwater, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and breast milk. However, MSM disappears quickly when these foods are processed (heated). MSM powder has a taste that takes some getting used to. MSM powder is beneficial because it provides a sulfur supplement in a natural way, but it may not be appealing to some people due to its taste.
