How to Make Organic Sulfur Taste Better

How to Make Organic Sulfur Taste Better?

In Blog by Hong28 Comments

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’ve talked extensively about the importance of adding organic sulfur to your daily regimen.

There are many amazing health benefits of organic sulfur. It’s an important mineral needed to build, detox, and repair the cells in your body.

But this wonderful mineral does body no good if one has a difficult time handling its taste. This is especially the case for individuals that are sulfur deficient

If you have a hard time getting used to sulfur’s taste or if you stopped taking it because of its taste, I recommend you keep reading for solutions.

In this article, I will share with you ways to make organic sulfur taste better


It’s Bitter

Organic sulfur crystal has a bitter taste to it. But this bitterness will diminish after a month or so of taking it. Personally, the bitter taste never bothered me. And after 2 years of taking it, I barely notice the bitterness anymore.

So when you first start taking organic sulfur, it can be very bitter, this could be a sign of sulfur deficiency, but it will get better once your body is getting sulfur regularly.

If you try to kill the bitter taste by mixing sulfur with store bought sweet juice or soda and remember sulfur binds with everything, the effectiveness will be reduced significantly. 

I don’t think you want to reduce its effectiveness, right? There are a few things you can mix with sulfur without rendering it ineffective. In fact, you can actually make it even more effective.

Let’s look at what they are.


Vitamin C

I am sure many of you are familiar with vitamin C and its health benefits. It’s a powerful antioxidant and a great immune booster that helps to fight free radical, heal wounds, and repair and maintain bones and teeth.

But did you know when organic sulfur is taken together with vitamin C, the effect on your overall health is much more profound than they do separately?

Yes, it’s true.

So the way this works is that organic sulfur (MSM) helps to open up body cells and make them more permeable, and this allows the harmful substances to flow out while permits nutrients to flow in. 

And vitamin C’s job is to fight harmful free radical and repair the tissues throughout the body. They work together to build healthy cells.

The vitamin C I’m talking about is the pure and fresh vitamin C from citrus fruits, not the pill or capsule form.

The reason I prefer fresh vitamin C is because most vitamin C capsule or pill contains additives, bonding agents, or anti-caking agents. This will significantly reduce sulfur effectiveness.

If you find it inconvenient to make fresh vitamin C and rather use the capsule, pill, or powder form, I highly recommend that you take sulfur first, then wait 30 minutes before taking anything else.

Doing this helps to ensure that nothing interferes with sulfur absorption, so your body can get the maximum amount of sulfur you take. 


How To Make Organic Sulfur (MSM) Taste Better?

There are a couple of recipes I’ve tried and I strongly recommend you try them out. These recipes also make it more attractive and easier for children to take sulfur as well. 

If bitterness is not so much of an issue for you, and you simply want to amplify the benefits of both nutrients, these recipes would most definitely provide you added additional health benefits.

Recipe #1

How to Make Organic Sulfur Taste Better - slices of lemon in a glass of water

  1. 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (Be sure to stick to fresh lemon, as pre-squeezed juice loses much of its vitamin C very quickly)
  2. 1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup  or raw organic honey
  3. 1 teaspoon of organic sulfur crystals, I use this brand
  4. 16 oz warm or cold water (can be served with ice cubes)


Recipe #2

How to Make Organic Sulfur Taste Better - slices of lime in a glass of water

  1. 1 teaspoon of lime juice (Be sure to stick to fresh lime, as pre-squeezed juice loses much of its vitamin C very quickly)
  2. 1 teaspoon of organic apple cider vinegar
  3. 1 teaspoon of organic sulfur crystals, I use this brand
  4. 16 oz warm or cold water (can be served with ice cubes)

NOTE:

The amount of sulfur I use for these recipes is based on my weight. Be sure to adjust the recipes according to your recommended amount of sulfur for your weight.

The general guide after acclimatization is to take 1 teaspoon of organic sulfur per 100 lbs of weight twice daily.

For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you would have to tweak the recipe just a bit by using 2 teaspoons of organic sulfur and dilute them in 32 oz of warm or cold water. The other ingredients can be left to just 1 teaspoon. However, you can also double them if you like.

As long as you have the correct dosage of sulfur for your weight, then you should be good to do. Whatever you do with other ingredients are not as important.


Few Things To Keep In Mind 

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when drinking this mixture.

Lemon and lime juice are the most acidic fruit juices of all, with a pH of 2 to 2.6, which can do some horrible damage your tooth enamel. Enamel is hard to grow back and once it’s severely damaged, it can even be irreparable.

Make sure you drink this mixture with a straw so that it bypasses your teeth.

Also be mindful not to brush your teeth immediately after drinking this mixture. This will wear away the enamel even more as the citric acid is still fresh on your teeth.

If you insist to brush, I recommend you rinse your mouth with water before doing so. 


Conclusion

There you have it. So if you can’t handle the bitter taste of organic sulfur or if the bitterness is the reason you stopped taking it, be sure to try these recipes.

  1. Use a straw to prevent damaging our tooth enamel….that’s a great reminder, sometimes we focus on improving our health without realizing we can affect something else on the process. I thank you for this great tip!
    I will try the recipe with maple syrup as I think that sweetness will make it more tasty for my sweet tooth.

  7. Organic sulphur does come across with one heck of a bitter taste, I do agree. Thanks for the recipes with regards to disguising the taste through these two drinks. I think I’ll try the lemon juice with some organic honey. I’m sure this will be palatable enough to drink down without issues.
    Also thanks for your advice regarding tweaking the amount in relation to my body weight further to drinking with a straw to bypass my teeth.
    Appreciate your healthy advice Hong, thank you,
    Simon.

  8. Hi Hong, I have never heard of organic sulfur crystals. Maybe I get enough of this naturally but I really don’t know. I guess I can buy these valuable crystals in a pharmacy. I would like to improve my health and resistance against illnesses.
    I like the idea of nixing sulfur with lime juice and honey, I want to try that.

      Hi Stefan, if your diet is primarily processed and refined foods, it is likely that you are sulfur deficient. Here is an article that explains sulfur deficiency in detail. Even if you consume lots of sulfur rich foods such as broccoli, onion, cauliflower, garlic, and cabbage. And if you cook them before eating, much of the sulfur content will be reduced due to heat. Unless you obtain foods from organic sources, it is very likely that you are sulfur deficient.

      In fact, our body does not product sulfur, we must obtain it from our diet or via supplementation. Please check out my sulfur deficiency article as it explains everything you need to know in detail.

      Let me know how the recipes work out for you. I hope you like them.

  9. Hong, I’ve always been one that’s really interested in non-traditional health and wellness, and taking sulfur seems a bit non-traditional to me. You really got me interested, and I think I’ll be reading more into here on your site, I may try this out.

    I like the recipe with lemon juice, that actually sounds like it would be really good. The acidity kind of concerns me as I already have sensitive teeth, but like you said, use a straw and brush afterwards. I think it’s worth a shot.

    Great post!

  10. Hi Hong, hope your day is going well,

    Great insights. I’ve heard so many comment on bitter taste of sulfur. I myself am at the point where it doesn’t bother me anymore for the reasons you outlined above and also, the benefits far outweigh the undesirable taste. It’s easy to overlook the the acidic properties of citrus fruit and how it can compromise teeth enamel. It makes good sense to use a straw to bypass that potential issue if one chooses to remedy the taste factor. Wonderful and informative piece as always.

    Have great rest of the day and will talk soon, Brad

  11. Hi Hong,

    Great post! I think many years ago the acid in lemon and other juices I had regularly took some of my enamel away. It has taken a long time to slowly get it back so I know what you mean. Great healthy drinks though!

    I love your post and your website. You explain it all so well and I love the recipes. Will be trying and using a straw haha!

      Hi Kevin, thank you for visiting and for your comment. I had the similar problem. I used to drink so much lemon water without using a straw and my teeth became so sensitive. It took me a while to get it back as well. I am glad you enjoy my posts and the recipes. Let me know if you have any question.

      Have fun drinking it with a straw!

  12. This is great to know because I would never volunteer to take anything with sulfur in name. I appreciate this because I may have been missing out on so many other healthy things.

      Hi Rick, I was the same way too. I used to think sulfur was some yellow stuff that smells like rotten egg. After some research, I found there are different sulfur compounds. Organic sulfur is actually a vital mineral needed for the body to help us to stay healthy. Here is an article that explain the sulfur difference in detail. I will tell you that incorporating organic sulfur in my daily regimen is the best thing I’ve ever done for my health and my family’health. Everyday, I am grateful and can’t thank enough of the wonderful mineral. Let me know if you have any question.

      Have a great day!

I will go through your articles and get back to you soon to have more discussion. Thank you for your great job.

  14. I really appreciate the reminder of the finite quality of our tooth enamel! I’ve been overdoing the citrus juices lately and really need to switch to enjoying them with a straw

    I’m about to bite the bullet and get on the organic sulfur train, and now it’s good to have a heads up on how to make it taste better. And what NOT to do…thanks!

      Hi Penelope, the health benefits of citrus fruits are great, but we have to be careful not to cause damage to our enamels at the same time. I hope these recipes will help you handle the sulfur’s taste better. Let me know if you have any question.
