How Sulfur Deficiency is Created
Sulfur has been known since ancient times for its healing abilities.
Sulfur is very involved with the production of collagen and collagen cannot be made without sulfur.
Sulfur is also very important in protecting your body from harmful toxins and heavy metals found in our environment.
There is no RDA for Sulfur, but your body uses up about 750 mg. of sulfur per day.
Most people are probably deficient in this mineral despite the adequate consumption of sulfur foods.
The depletion of our soils and bad animal husbandry practices mean that our fruits, vegetables, and factory farmed animal products usually have very little organic sulfur to give our bodies.
This sulfur is then further destroyed during cooking or pasteurization processes.
Properly grown and eaten sulfur rich foods will help to give your body this necessary mineral that literally helps to keep your form.
