Minerals can make you look really good! - Sulphur
Just like vitamins, minerals help your body grow, develop and stay healthy. The body uses minerals to perform many different functions – from building strong bones to transmitting nerve impulses. Some minerals are even used to make hormones or maintain a normal heartbeat. Applied to the skin and hair as well as taken internally they can make you look very good. External applications of minerals and vitamins together with a raw food diet rich in minerals and vitamins can literally transform the structure of the skin and hair cells, increasing structural integrity, elasticity and tensile strength.
If you want beautiful thick hair, eat sulphur. Only organic sulphur of course.
Sulphur is the third most abundant mineral in the body. Although it has wide distribution, only very small amounts are actually available to us from our diet. It´s found in breast milk, eggs, garlic, fish, grass-fed beef, free-range poultry, broccoli, kale, asparagus and onions.
One of sulphur’s most important roles is linked with protein. There are four sulphur containing amino acids: methione, cysteine, cysteine and taurine. Sulphur plays and essential role in collagen synthesis and is a vital consistent of Keratin, a strong structural protein necessary for healthy nails, skin and hair.
Sulphur is also involved in the proper functioning of your metabolism and the nervous system.
It is closely linked to a healthy liver function and plays a vital part in tissue respiration, helping to build new cells and release energy. It is also an excellent pollution protector both on its own and as part of the sulphur containing amino acids.
Clinically sulphur has been found to be useful in arthritis, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. It can be taken internally, in the form of organic sulphur, as well as applied directly to the affected area of the skin. External application to the face will produce and immediate tightening and freshening effect which will not lead to any adverse drying.
Stay happy and healthy,
