Sulfur is a naturally occurring mineral, and the third most abundant in the human body behind calcium and phosphorus. In the body, it is a necessity for proper synthesis of proteins and enzyme, vitamin conversions, joint health, metabolizing amino acids, hair, nail, and skin health, and more.
Sulfur is required for proteins (like keratin) to maintain their shape, which contributes directly to the overall health, strength, and elasticity of hair which is comprised of keratin. Further, the life cycle of your hair consists of 3 phases: growing, resting, and shedding. Sulfur has been proven to lengthen the growing phase. A longer growing phase (before resting and shedding) means longer hair.
Sulfur is also linked to treating, relieving, and decreasing the occurrences of psoriasis, dandruff, eczema, and folliculitis.
Including these foods in your diet will help increase your sulfur intake internally:
high quality beef and poultry (grass-fed is always recommended)
You can also take Organic Sulfur (MSM) powder, from your local health food store, but be aware that not all MSM powders are Organic Sulfur. Check the label.
