Sulfur/MSM is essential for healthy joints, smooth skin, glossy hair, hard nails and collagen synthesis. It is critical to protein metabolism. Sulfur is found in every cell of the human body. Sulfur is a crucial component of our tissues, hormones, vitamins, enzymes, antibodies and antioxidants. We simply cannot maintain good health without it. Large amounts of sulfur are found in joints, skin, hair, and nails. There is a minimum concentration of sulfur that must be maintained for healthy bodily function and structure. The body uses sulfur to continually create healthy new cells to replace old ones. Sulfur makes cells permeable, ensuring that nutrients are delivered into the cell and that toxins and waste products are removed.

Sulfur is a natural detoxifier for lead. By allowing fluids and nutrients to flow freely through the cell wall, sulfur reduces pain and inflammation and promotes healing. Every time the body removes invading toxins from the cell, it also removes the sulfur compound that neutralizes the toxins. This is why sulfur supplementation is so vital to daily nutrition. Sulfur's anti-inflammatory properties and ability to repair scar tissue around damaged areas explains its power to alleviate rheumatoid arthritis. Persons afflicted with osteoarthritis, which involves the deterioration of the cartilage at the ends of the bones, are often found to be deficient in sulfur. Sulfur alleviates the pain associated with osteoarthritis by acting as an anti-inflammatory. Sulfur is also known for its ability to help with digestive disorders, such as heartburn, indigestion, and gastritis.
Sulfur is also important for proper metabolism of carbohydrates and adequate uptake of sugar molecules necessary for energy. Sulfur can restore normal blood sugar levels as cells become permeable and helps restore pancreas functions to normal as the cells absorb blood sugar. The body is in a constant state of repair so if we don't get enough of the required nutrients the end product is going to be less than perfect. This is reflected in the aging process. Sulfur functions to inhibit this aging process within cells.
Symptoms of Deficiency
Deficiencies will only really happen if a diet is deprived of protein, when foods are grown in sulfur-depleted soil, or a poorly planned vegan diet.
