How is Sulfur Deficiency Created?

The depletion of our soils which started in the 1940s with the introduction of chemical fertilizers to our farmers is one big reason.

Bad animal husbandry practices have also negatively affected our food supply.

Our fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, and factory farmed animal products usually have very little "organic sulfur" to give our bodies.

Also, the abuse of herbicides like Roundup which contains Glyphosate has contributed greatly to sulfur deficiency symptoms.

What is Sulfur?

Methionine and cysteine are the primary sulfur containing amino acids due to being incorporated within the proteins of your cells.

Sulfur is needed for the formation of your connective tissue which is necessary for healthy nails, hair, and skin.

Sulfur comprises about 0.25% of your total body weight.

Sulfur is also known as a transformational substance and is very important for the "growth" of a human being.

There is no RDA for Sulfur, but your body uses up about 750 mg. of sulfur per day. 

And most people probably suffer from a sulfur deficiency despite the adequate consumption of "sulfur" rich foods.

Properly grown and properly eaten sulfur rich foods will help to give your body the type of sulfur that literally helps to keep your form.

Sulfur is also very important in order to protect your body from harmful toxins and heavy metals found in our environment.

"Organic sulfur" will be destroyed during the cooking process.  And that includes the pasteurization process, so don't overcook your foods!
