Sulfur bonds are required for proteins to maintain their shape, and these bonds determine the biological activity of the proteins.*

Your hair, skin, and nails consist of a tough protein composed in significant part of sulfur called keratin.* And connective tissue and cartilage contain proteins with flexible sulfur bonds, giving the structures flexibility.*

As you age, the flexible tissues in your body tend to lose their elasticity which can lead to sagging and wrinkling skin, as well as less flexible muscles and less comfortable joints.

In addition to bonding proteins, sulfur is also required for the proper structure and biological activity of enzymes.* If you don’t have sufficient amounts of sulfur in your body, these enzymes cannot function optimally….

Sulfur also plays other important roles as it…
