Nutrition – Pure Organic Sulfur Crystals.
MSM or methylsulfonymethane is an organic sulfur compound that is well known for its health benefits for joints.
Dr. Stanley Jacob, professor of Surgery at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland studied sulfur’s therapeutic benefits in more than 15,000 patients.
As the senior author of The Miracle of MSM, Dr. Jacob presented facts on how the sulfur crystals can significantly decrease the pain of arthritis, back pain, headaches, athletic injuries, asthma, carpel tunnel syndrome, autism, and a host of autoimmune diseases like lupus and fibromyalgia.
In fact, it has been so effective in helping patients with these problems that it extends beyond the effects of glucosamine and chondroitin as an analgesic dietary supplement, as well as for allergy relief and as an anti-inflammatory agent.
Organic MSM, in nature, is a microscopic phytoplankton living in the oceans that eventually dies and begins to decompose. As it decays, it creates a gas called dimethylsulfide (DMS). It is also lignin based.
Oxygen and sunlight react with DMS causing it to go through a series of oxidation steps that include the formation of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), methylsulfonymethane (MSM) and other sulfates. Studies on how clouds form have demonstrated that microscopic particles of sulfate are requires for water vapor in the atmosphere to form clouds.
Water droplets than absorb DMSO and MSM since both are highly soluble in water. Eventually, when the clouds release their water droplets as rain, trace amounts of these compounds drop to the earth to be used by plants and trees or returned to the sea to repeat the process.
Most commercially produced MSM is not from a natural substance made from phytoplankton. It is the product of chemical industries and manufactured from petroleum waste and methane gas and is completely useless and worthless.
Bear in mind that deficiencies in biological sulfur can result in the less than optimal functioning of each cell in the body. Inorganic sulfur is poorly assimilated whereas organic, biologically active sulfur is therefore extremely important for the health of every living organism. Organic sulfur crystals are the natural source of biological sulfur to which we have adapted through our evolution.
Dr, Stephanie Sennef, A scientist at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has made it quite clear through her independent research that once the body reverses its sulfur deficiency, cells are repaired and good health abounds. Also, a study at the University of South Hampton in Great Britain found that the organic sulfur crystals produce the essential amino acids and vitamin B-12 in the body.
So, lets take a look at some of the benefits:
MSM is a natural analgesic and blocks the transfer of pain impulses through the nerve fibers. The sulfur also blocks the inflammation process by enhancing the activity or cortisol, a natural anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the body.
The sulfur increases the effects of most vitamins and other nutrients, such as vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10, all B vitamins, vitamin A, D, and E, amino acids, selenium, calcium, magnesium and many others. The sulfur improves the cellular uptake of these nutrients and prolongs their lives, but should not be taken within 30 minutes of taking sulfur because anything synthetic typically found in supplements and meds will nullify the benefits of the sulfur if consumed within 30 minutes of taking the sulfur.
The organic sulfur crystals are a strong antioxidant, capable of binding and inactivating harmful free radicals. Overproduction of free radicals is caused by physical and mental stress, malnutrition, air pollution, heavy metals and organic contaminants in drinking water and food (GMOS) and radiation.
The crystals dissolve in many organic and inorganic compounds and reacts with toxins, affects inactivation and speeds the excretion of parasites and more. Furthermore, the sulfur enhances the permeability of cell membranes, making it easier for nutrients to be taken up by the cells and for waste products to be eliminated.
The brain is extremely sensitive to the effects of toxic materials such as heavy metals and organic compounds. Many of these compounds tend to accumulate in nerve cells where they can cause severe oxidative damage. Neurological disturbances may be the result. The organic sulfur crystals are one of the few antioxidants, which can easily pass the blood-brain barrier. It prevents and repairs oxidative damage and restores cell membrane elasticity and permeability. This allows the nerve cells to start excreting waste products. Remember that autism arises from heavy metals passing the blood-brain barrier. We have 22 reversals of autism that we know about. All within a week or so.
The sulfur alleviates the symptoms of a large number of allergies, including food allergies, contact allergies, inhalation allergies (asthma, bronchitis, etc), and others. The major anti-allergic characteristic of the sulfur crystals caused by its ability to bind to the mucosa and present a natural blocking interface between hosts and allergens. Besides, the sulfur crystals alleviate allergies through detoxification and elimination of free radicals, and improvement of cell permeability.
Sulfur is very effective in fighting inflammations resulting from autoimmune reactions in which the body’s immune system turns on itself. For example, people who suffer from arthritis often benefit greatly form the sulfur crystals. Several studies have shown that supplementation with organic sulfur crystals significantly reduces joint degeneration and inflammation. In one study, 24 people with symptomatic osteoarthritis were treated with a regular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), or with 3 grams of sulfur daily. After one month, both groups noted equal improvements in pain and stiffness. The difference was that the sulfur group did not have to poison their systems with synthetic chemicals.
One of the most amazing discoveries on MSM is its anti-parasitic action against Giardia, Trichomonas, roundworms, nematodes, Enterobius and other intestinal worms. Animal studies include laboratory mice determined to have pinworms by fecal cast examination. They were given commercial food and drinking water, both containing 2% sulfur by weight. After 17 days, fecal examination indicated the feces were free of worms and eggs.
The sulfur containing B vitamin biotin is a critical part of glucokinase, the enzyme involved in the utilization of the sugar glucose. Sulfur is also a component of insulin, the protein hormone secreted by the pancreas that is essential to carbohydrate metabolism. Lack of nutritional sulfur in the diet can result in low production of biologically active insulin. Studies indicate the sulfur improves cellular glucose uptake by improving cell permeability, thus balancing blood sugar level and returning the pancreas to normal functioning.
Say goodbye to Viagra or Cialis. It will reverse that problem in a short period of time.
NATURAL OR SYNTHETIC
The sulfur and its precursors return to the earth in rainwater, which contains a lot of sulfur. Fruits and vegetables will absorb this rainwater and sulfur can be found in most plants and trees, especially pine trees, with a content ranging from 1 to 4 mg/kg.
When animals eat these plants, they also assimilate sulfur. Unfortunately, the synthetic petro-chemical fertilizers, genetically modified herbicides, pesticides, and insecticides virtually killed all the sulfur in the soil.
Raw cow’s milk from pastured animals contains a considerable amount of sulfur: about 2 to 5 mg/kg. Due to the volatile nature of the sulfur, it is rapidly lost when consumerables are heated during food preparation or pasteurization. Pasteurized milk therefore contains less than 0.25mg/kg sulfur, roughly the same amount found in milk from cows fed dried, artificial food. Milk from goats and other animals contains a lesser amount.
Cooking and heating will destroy most sulfur in plants and meats. Sulfur is also lost when vegetables and fruit are frozen for a lengthy period of time, or when they are irradiated. Due to the realities of the modern food industry, in which a great portion of everything we eat is either heated, irradiated, frozen for a long period of time, or genetically modified, it’s no wonder that we suffer from a chronic shortage of sulfur.
Yes, foods that dogs eat are also not very nutritious and lack in sulfur.
The therapeutic dosage for dogs is about 50 to 100 mg per 10 pounds of body weight. Even dogs fed a raw, whole food diet might not be getting enough sulfur thanks to farming industrialization.
So, if your dog suffers from a chronic inflammatory condition or joint pain, you might want to give him the sulfur crystals. Because it is a synthesized product, extensive distillation is crucial to remove impurities such as heavy metals. Unlike most other supplements, the sulfur crystal can be manufactured in the US, so look for US made sources. Ours is extracted from the pine trees in Louisiana.
If you prefer to rely on food sources of sulfur, make sure your dog’s diet is raw and organic to keep as much of the naturally occurring sulfur intact. Smaller amounts of naturally occurring sulfur would be needed, so it might be possible for your dog to get enough from diet alone.
Adding sulfur rich foods to your dog’s diet might also help, since the sulfur is organic. Sulfur also plays an important role in the production of glutathione, another important antioxidant.
Sulfur rich foods include meats with a lot of collagen, such as bones, trachea and connective tissue. Raw, organic meats and bones are best, but only for dogs because by nature they are carnivorous while humans are not.
