Cells contain biological engines called mitochondria that convert food into energy the body can use. Mitochondria utilize a complex system of vitamins, minerals, essential lipids, electrolytes, amino acids, antioxidants to function properly. Nutritional deficiencies lead to dysfunction, cell death, disease, and aging.
Dietary sulfur is an essential component for cellular health.
