MSM is made up of 34% Organic Sulfur (organic in this sense simply means bound to a carbon). Sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in your body (after calcium and phosphorus) and it's crucial to improving and maintaining your good health.
The primary function of Sulfur is transporting oxygen across your cell membranes. Without intracellular oxygen, your health declines and you age sooner, rather than later.
Cellular oxygen transport enables healthy cellular regeneration. It's essential to joint and soft-tissue repair, and maintenance. It may speed up muscle recovery by assisting in the repair of micro-tears which occur after strenuous activity.
In conjunction with transporting oxygen across the cell membrane, Sulfur has demonstrated its ability to detoxify heavy metals, another route for cell regeneration. Sulfur is also a key for your body to use amino acids - your body's building blocks. Of all of the amino acids, some 70% are Sulfur-based. Sulfur also helps with skin health, blood pressure and circulatory regulation, scar tissue reduction, pain reduction and damaged nerve regeneration.
Plants can produce Organic Sulfur - mammals cannot. We must ingest sufficient quantities every day.
The Biggest Effect of Oxygenation from Sulfur is on Tumors!
Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize winner in 1931) proved that cancer in humans is anaerobic - that means without oxygen. Cells in permanent oxygen deprivation switch from respiration (breathing) to fermentation (dying). Just think what better cellular oxygenation could do to shrink and stop tumors - they all thrive without oxygen!
Oxygen Transportation Across Cell Membranes Improves…
- Cellular respiration (conversion of nutrients into energy, then waste elimination)
- Healthy cell regeneration
- Recovery from fatigue
- Athletic performance
- Tissue rebuilding - this is the short list.
Sulfur from MSM is not the yellow mineral sulfur from mining and it is not related to allergy-causing sulfa drugs. Bioavailable sulfur is consumed by people through plants.
