Sulfur is a naturally-occurring compound found in many foods like protein foods, cruciferous vegetables, eggs, onions and garlic.
Sulfur is one of the main components of detoxification within the body and being deficient in sulfur can negatively impact our body’s ability to process and remove harmful chemicals.
Here’s why: sulfur is needed to produce glutathione, which is our body’s main antioxidant. Most of our glutathione is produces from our liver. See the connection?
Not enough sulfur foods means not enough glutathione which means lowered ability to detoxify.
