Customer writes: I just placed an order and would like to know the difference between your organic sulfur and MSM? What does your sulfur taste like or is it tasteless? Thank you and I look forward to your response.
My product is an organic white crystalline form of MSM that excludes anti-caking agents and fillers (e.g., silicon dioxide and calcium stearate) that supplement manufacturers often include with their product. It’s called organic sulfur to differentiate it from other MSM products. During processing, some manufacturers heat their MSM above sulfur’s melting point of 239 degrees F; doing so negates much of the natural health-providing qualities of the product. Light sleepers are advised to take their second dose of organic sulfur no later than 4pm because the oxygenation process is so powerful that it may cause them to lie awake at night.
How you respond to the taste of organic sulfur will largely depend on your current state of health. Organic sulfur has a very high (9.3) pH. The level of bitterness that you sense is an indication of how sulfur-deficient you are at that time. If you have been eating foods that tend to make your body acidic, then you will more likely notice the bitterness of the product. If taking your standard dose of organic sulfur in a glass of water tastes extremely bitter to you, the next time add a half or a full teaspoon of maple syrup or apple cider vinegar. Don’t overdo it. The bitter taste should be gone in three weeks when your body begins its next sulfur cycle. Some customers like the taste of organic sulfur mixed in their favorite tea or coffee beverage, while others enjoy it in the form of Margo’s Bridge Punch (click here for recipe).
While the standard recommendation for most healthy individuals is to take one teaspoon of organic sulfur twice a day, you can elect to take more than this amount, or three times a day, if you wish. Any excess sulfur that your body cannot use will be safely excreted.
As a precautionary warning, taking a low dosage of organic sulfur (say, 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon once a day) while in a state of dehydration is likely to result in a Herxheimer-like detox reaction such as a severe headache or dizziness where your body will try to dump toxins into your liver and bloodstream at a faster rate than it can handle. If that happens to you, don’t stop taking sulfur! In fact, immediately take another dosage with food and water and let the short-term adverse reaction pass away.
