DMSO1 & Organic Sulfur
Claims about “plant-based” organic sulfur being better than other types are false and hold no scientific merit. Yes, there are important differences between the different sulfur products that are sold for consumption (i.e. pills, capsules, powder, flakes, with or without additives, in creams and drinks, packaging, country of manufacture etc.). However, regarding the claims that “plant-based” organic sulfur offers better healing results are specious and misleading. There is no such thing as plant-based organic sulfur. It all begins with black liquor and heavy industry.
- There are plants and trees from 50 million years ago, which have turned into crude oil. Crude oil is an “organic based” commodity related to petrochemicals;
- In these modern times, there is the pulp and paper industry, which processes pine trees, which makes the pulp and paper industry a plant- or tree-based heavy industry.
Both of these are “organic-based” heavy industries have an end-product that is often referred to as black liquor. Black liquor is then sold to a chemical plant and processed into Dimethylsulfoxide1—DMSO1. (The number 1 refers to the number of oxygen molecules.) So, from heavy industry is created black liquor and from black liquor is made DMSO1 in a manufacturing process. DMSO1 has a rigid and specific chemical structure.
There are basically two grades of DMSO1 — industrial and pharmaceutical. Whether made from petro-chem or pulp-and-paper black liquor there is no difference in the final pharmaceutical grade DMSO1. This is hard for many people to believe because of the barrage of advertising that has been going on for years that criticizes petrochemical industry products. By assumption, the heavy industry of pulp and paper isn’t as “evil” regarding eco-damage. Maybe so, but, in the scientific truth of chemistry, pharmaceutical grade DMSO1 has a rigid structure—once black liquor it is transformed into DMSO1 the original source of black liquor is irrelevant.
Pharmaceutical grade DMSO1 is a reactive healing agent that has demonstrated excellent health benefits. It has active transdermal properties and acts to transport things across the skin barrier. It’s been used in sports and veterinary medicine for years. Many people report that DMSO1 is a remarkable long-term aide to help with small-joint body pain, body fungus, herpes outbreaks, warts, arthritis, skin lesions, and many other conditions. DMSO1 is applied topically. There are serious cautions and guidelines for using DMSO1. It is relatively inexpensive to manufacture; it cannot be patented, and it’s easily available in large quantities. Drug companies are opposed to its availability—they lose money in drug sales and there’s no substantial profit. The “problem” is when applying DMSO1, even though effective for healing, it can create a very strong and unpleasant (temporary) body or breath odor.
What is Organic Sulfur, exactly?
The organic sulfur, recommended and used in this study, is classified by Canada Health and Welfare and US-FDA as a non-perishable food product; it is not a vitamin or supplement. It has four names: Dimethylsulfoxide2 (DMSO2) or MeythylSulfonyMethane (MSM) or DimethylSulfone or Organic Sulfur.
Any organic sulfur that you buy is a manufactured product; it cannot be extracted from nature. There are different manufacturing processes (some better than others). The best Organic Sulfur comes from a manufacturing process that combines pharmaceutical grade DMSO1 and pharmaceutical grade hydrogen peroxide, which are then put through an elaborate and complex process (precipitation) in a carefully controlled environment. There are cheaper and less-pure methods of manufacture that offer a sub-standard product. The best (and most expensive) process gives an end result of 99.85% pure organic sulfur in large flakes. Depending on the end user, the final product is then either left as-is or processed.
Myths & Truths about Organic Sulfur
Some resellers claim they have a lignin based organic sulfur, which is better than everyone else’s. Lignin is the molecule in trees that makes them rigid and “stand up straight”. If there was lignin in organic sulfur (a) we couldn’t use it in our bodies, and (b) if we could, it would makes us rigid and inflexible like trees. There is no lignin in organic sulfur, there is no lignin in any consumable organic sulfur. By weight, it is consistently:
- 34% oxygen
- 34% bio-available elemental sulfur
- 25.5% bio-available carbon
- 6.5% hydrogen
- with trace H2O moisture (est. <0.1%) and smaller traces of DMSO1 moisture (est. <0.05%). These last two percentages can vary between themselves up to 0.003%.
Why call our particular organic sulfur organic? Because, unlike other MSM mixtures and compounds, the large flake organic sulfur recommended and sold by this company is pure and 100% organically available to your body cells. There are no contaminants or additives, guaranteed. Our bodies use this organic sulfur 100%—carbon for cell repair, organic sulfur for oxygen and mineral transport and amino acid manufacture, oxygen to address cellular stasis, and hydrogen as an anti-oxidant.
Sulfur products manufactured outside of North America have repeatedly shown themselves to be less effective because of contaminates and inconsistencies in manufacture. Heavy metal toxicity is usually 60 – 100% higher, and three samples tested out twice the contaminates than what we sell, measured in PPM. No, you do not get bad breath or body odor from this organic sulfur (yes from DMSO1, not from DMSO2).
 DMSO1 is a transdermal agent and is used effectively on the skin. Do not use it full strength. Read DR. Morton Walker’s book DMSO Nature’s Healer. See the video on YouTube – search Dr. Stanley Jacob / DMSO. Also see The Persecuted Drug: The Story of DMSO, by Pat Grady, Sr.
 Other manufacturing processes usually produce a less pure and notably less expensive product—processes that more easily allow particles of contamination. Of the six manufacturing plants the director has examined and toured (2007-2013) the processes used in off shore manufacturing (China and India) are not to the level of purity as our North American product. However, off shore product is imported in large quantities and usually offered at about half the cost of the better quality product. You get what you pay for. At least two resellers are known to buy cheap off-shore product and advertise it is North American made.
