Cell Membrane Permeability -- Sulfur & MSM
Available at most Health Food Stores

Brimstone is the old name for sulphur now known as MSM, Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane, a natural form of organic sulphur found in the fluids of all living organisms. It is an organic pure and natural, stable, white crystalline powder without the unpleasant taste or smell. It is odorless and does not produce intestinal gases. Sulphur is essential to life and safe as water. It has many remarkable properties and there is evidence to suggest that it helps with other amino sugars to produce collagen for improved joint health and mobility.

Air and water pollution, over farming and polluted soil, artificial irrigation practices, deforestation all contributes to sulphur depleted soil. Minerals depleted from the soil means there is insufficient available for plant uptake and consequently less available in our diets.

UNFORTUNATELY, MSM is also easily lost during moderate food processing. Cooking, drying, smoking, pickling and long-term storage can deplete the MSM content of food.

1) Dehydration & Detoxification - Sulphur is responsible for the ionic exchange within the sodium-potassium pump in the cell. Sulphur is needed to maintain cell membrane permeability. This is important to ensure that nutrients are delivered into the cell and toxins and other waste products can exit. A lack of sulphur prevents the transport of free radicals, chemicals and foreign particles out of the cells, which if not excreted can lead to many allergic reactions such as Asthma, ear nose and throat infections, hay fever, headaches, fatigue and gastrointestinal problems.

2) Energy - Sulphur is a component of insulin, the very important hormone that regulates the uptake of glucose by cells for use as energy. A lack of sulphur can result in low insulin production or cell resistance to insulin, which in turn brings about excess blood sugar leading to diabetes. Sulphur is also needed for thiamine and biotin which arc needed for normal carbohydrate metabolism. Sulphur plays a part in tissue respiration, the process whereby oxygen is used to build new cells, a lack of sulphur can lead to replaced cells being dysfunctional and causing serious health related problems. Sulphur will help the immune system inhibit chemical carcinogens.

3) Structure - Sulphur is a required structural mineral found in the proteins of most tissues in the body such as the skin, blood vessels, organs, hair and nails. Sulphur makes up the flexible disulphide bonds within protein structure in tissues providing elasticity and movement. Sulphur is also necessary for healing and repair of these tissues from internal injury and free radical damage. MSM contributes to the production of ground substance (muccopolysaccharides), which keeps connective tissue intact.

Researchers claim that MSM can help improve joint flexibility, reduce stiffness, swelling and pain, improve circulation and break up calcium deposits or water bonds in the synovial fluid.

4) Function - Sulphur is known as nature's Beauty mineral as it keeps the hair glossy and smooth, nails pliable and strong, and complexion clear and youthful. It has been used for scar tissue, burns, acne, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, scabies, and many skin rashes.

5) Other conditions

a) Insect bites, MSM reacts with foreign protein (like venom & toxins injected by insects), by locking them up, neutralizing the poisons, which can then be harmlessly eliminated.

b) Sunburn, MSM contributes significant permeability and pliability to all tissues including the skin; it prevents blistering and promotes faster healing from sun or wind damage.

c) Disorders & Infection Sulphur functions quickly throughout the system by increasing nutrient absorption which improves many digestive disorders such as constipation, heartburn, colitis. MSM competes for binding receptor sites at the mucus membrane surface and therefore discourages infections such as Candida and removes parasites such as roundworms.


MSM is rated as one of the least toxic substances in biology similar to water. Because of this fact, there is no critical minimum or maximum dosage level. However, as a nutritional supplement it is recommended that you take between 2000mg and 6000mg per day.

To detox you will need 20 grams per day for approximately I week. Spread the dosage throughout the day with at least 5 x 12 fluid ounces of water.
