Lipid-bound sulfur has proven beneficial for the pain, swelling and stiffness of osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative arthritis or “wear and tear” arthritis. Sulfur is an essential nutrient for the strong yet flexible connective tissues in the joints most affected by OA – hands, knees and hips. Industrial farming focuses on high yields which depletes many soil nutrients, including sulfur. Sulfur is not replenished in conventional nor in organic farming.
Joint function is equally dependent on the health of four different connective tissues: cartilage, tendons, ligaments and muscles. Sulfur deficiency compromises the strength and flexibility these four tissues.
Lipid-bound sulfur (LbS) delivers sulfur directly to sulfur-deficient tissues.
One dropper twice daily. Empty dropper directly onto food or into mouth. Alternatively, empty dropper into the large end of a #00 capsule, close with small end and swallow with water or beverage. If product is thick or cloudy, set bottle in hot water for 30-60 seconds before use.
Osteoarthritic lesions are also the result of anaerobic metabolism, often the result of high cholesterol in tissues
. While low tissue cholesterol is common in autoimmune arthritis, such as rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, high tissue cholesterol often indicates osteoarthritis (OA).
Cholesterol molecules bear alkaline hydroxyl groups and therefore alkalized tissues. Since urine pH corresponds to tissue pH, individuals with OA often have a predominantly alkaline urine, greater than 6.4, as opposed to a healthy fluctuating alkaline-acid pH. While the tissue pH is too alkaline the pH of OA lesions is acidic. Pathological concentrations of cholesterol in lesions generate lactic acid. See High Cholesterol Induces Anaerobic Metabolism
This unique form of sulfur is delivered to arthritic joint tissues. Lipid-bound Sulfur (LbS) is incorporated in free fatty acids that ensures it is delivered to tissues with free lipids, that is, to tissues with excess, and hence pathological, free cholesterol (TCh)
. LbS not only provides sulfur to these abnormal tissues, LbS contains bivalent negative sulfur. S , like O , is a powerful oxidant. It oxidizes and destroys the highly inflammatory and self-propagating fatty acids that do irreversible damage to tissues in OA.
By this same mechanism, LbS reduces symptoms during nicotine and alcohol withdrawal and prevents alcohol intoxication. Intoxicants, including nicotine and alcohol, deprive cells of oxygen. Pathological fatty acids are the body’s attempt, albeit ineffectual and therefore exaggerated, to restore oxygen to cells. LbS oxidizes and eliminates the fatty acids that persist and cause symptoms of withdrawal upon cessation of an intoxicant.
For nicotine and alcohol withdrawal: one dropper five times a day, reducing as tolerated to four, then three and finally two capsules per day.
Lipid-bound Sulfur is also used additional to Lipid-bound Selenium in opioid withdrawal. << BACK
