In this video, we’re going to talk about sulfur in your diet. Are you getting enough sulfur?

Sulfur is needed for the creation of two important amino acids—methionine and cysteine.

Methionine is an essential amino acid, which means you must get it from your diet; your body can’t create it on its own.

Sulfur is also important for glutathione, which is essential for healthy liver detoxification.

If you are deficient in glutathione, you can accumulate too much hydrogen peroxide in your body.

Sulfur is essential for:

• Healthy keratin levels. This protein makes up the majority of the structure of your hair, skin, and nails.

• The creation of insulin

• Collagen synthesis

• Detoxification

• Decreasing kidney stones in dogs

• Lowering histamine levels

• Phase 1 and 2 detoxification enzymes

The best sources of sulfur include:

• Fish

• Seafood

• Beef

• Eggs

• Cheese

• Garlic

• Onions

• Brussels sprouts

• Cabbage

Causes of low sulfur levels include:

1. Taking acetaminophen

2. Infection

3. Toxins

4. Consuming too many proteins without methionine (fruit, vegetables, legumes)

5. High estrogen
