Sulfur is one of the most common minerals in your body, but can easily become deficient with age. It is responsible for determining the biological activity of important proteins in your body, particularly the ones found in your joints and connective tissue. Luckily, there are several means by which to ensure you maintain healthy levels of sulfur and maintain Healthy Joints.
Sulfur via Food
Most of the sulfur your body requires is derived from your diet. Meat is the best source of sulfur, though some other foods have high amounts too; these include:
- Brussels Sprouts
Unfortunately, many foodstuffs now contain smaller quantities of sulfur due to over-farming, which has led to sulfur depletion in the soil. This translates to no matter your dietary intake, you still may not be getting enough sulfur. Other factors can influence the body’s efficiency in absorbing the mineral. Natural levels decline with age, and absorption slows.
Getting Enough Sulfur
Aside from a diet composed of healthy, sulfur-rich foods, there are supplements that aid in the absorption of sulfur by the body. MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is an organic form of sulfur, as well as a rich antioxidant. MSM is naturally occurring and found in the tissue of plants and animals. Its unique structure is more effectively absorbed and utilized by the body than forms of sulfur.
Flexcin’s comprehensive formula contains MSM, amongst other joint-supporting components. Supplementing with Flexcin will help your body maintain healthy levels of sulfur, ensuring your joint tissue and other supporting material stay strong naturally.
