Many of our customers are aware of these supplements and are happy to come back to us regularly for the products that have helped them heal, detox or achieve superior well-being. The positive side about these legislations is it obliges you to research the product or the ingredients, helping you make a more responsible and clear decision. However, as internet is an information jungle, it might be difficult to create an objective view on a product and you might occur in wasting a lot of time. In such cases, feel free to ask us for advice.
We at Fitoplus are passionately committed to bring you the purest and most efficient health supporting products, also thanks to years of experiences gained through offering free Naturopath consultings to our clients. Thank you for your understanding and enjoy researching the products further.

It seems that Linus Pauling (Nobel Prize) has said that all modern diseases can be attributed to a mineral deficiency. Although it is best known for vitamin C, the statement takes into account the primary minerals.
Many researchers say that the bioavailable sulphur is one of the most important trace minerals. Some research reports indicate that about 1% of our body weight should be "organic" bioavailable sulphur (essential for the structure of amino acids and for the transport of oxygen).
Cell regeneration is closely linked to the ability of our body to transport oxygen through the cell membrane. A study of the periodic table shows that the only minerals that carry oxygen are sulphur, selenium and tellurium. The transport of oxygen at the cellular level, that is, through the cell membrane, is a primary function of the organic bioavailable sulphur. Organic sulphur is composed of carbon, oxygen and bioavailable sulphur.
The body uses it all.
It is also essential for the creation of amino acids. In people the amino acids are essential to health and all amino acids are sulphur at 70%. Four of the most important amino acids, methionine, cystine, cysteine and taurine, cannot function effectively without the organic sulphur. How does the food we eat gets sulfur to form amino acids if the food does not contain bioavailable sulphur? How does our body produce methionine, cysteine, taurine, or glutathione, which is perhaps the most important, if we are deficient in sulphur?
Many nutritionists say that people are able to get enough sulfur as long as they eat red meat or large quantities of sulphur such as egg yolks, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, watercress, radish, leek, onion and garlic (all of course organic). Unfortunately, many people do not like these foods or, as in the case of eggs, avoid them.
The sulfur is not stored in the human body, except for the hair, nails and cartilage, so it must be ingested daily. As for all the foods mentioned above, if the food is not fed by sulphur these meats and vegetables are deficient in sulphur. The organic eggs are fine, because the chickens will eat anything, including their droppings, which tracks an internal cycle of suphur, so the eggs are a good source of sulphur and should not be avoided.
Fitoplus provides a supplement of sulphur (methylsulfonylmethane) in a pure crystalline form based on DMSO. They do not add fillers, anti-caking agents or preservatives. It is 99.9% pure and uncontaminated in white crystals which do not undergo any further treatment. Fitoplus does not use the "MSM" commercially available, that often reach up to 34% sulfur. Our product is NOT sourced offshore (China, India or Russia). It's a North American product made according to strict standards of quality pharmaceutical/food. That's why we prefer to call it bioavailable organic instead of sulphur MSM.
The need for sulfur and sulfur levels in modern diets
The human body contains a relatively large proportion of sulphur. Our skin, hair and nails all have a high sulfur content. In the 50's, the chemical fertilizers were mandated by governments. Fertilizers such as nitrates and ammonium sulfates, which are free of bioavailability, seem to have broken the sulfur cycle. This appears to have contributed to the decline of our health, well-being, mental concentration and quality of life.
The intensive agriculture has caused a lack of sulphur as well as the long term preservation of food, the consumption of processed foods and full of preservatives, and the frightening increase of fast food and prepared foods. Consequently, only some people eat a sufficient amount of raw foods that contain sulphur daily.
Who can take organic sulfur?
Virtually anyone! The supplement sulphur MSM has been used by people of all ages and gender, including children and pregnant women although in these cases it is advisable to consult your doctor to determine if you are eligible.
Organic sulfur (MSM) is not similar to sulfides, sulfites and inorganic sulfates to which many people are allergic. Organic sulphur is a naturally occurring mineral. There are no reports that the sulphur series has caused damage or inconvenience if taken in the dosage amounts described below.
Over 30 years of history of use of sulfur MSM show that its one of the safest nutrients to ingest in large amounts without toxic side effects to the organism. No liver injury has been documented due to the consumption of MSM. Attempts to kill mice and rats have not reached a toxic level with 200 grams, or almost half a pound a day.
What if I take too much sulfur?
Organic sulfur is considered non-toxic and if you have taken an excessive amount in your body will simply remove it safely through the gastrointestinal system. The most common complaint reported when one takes too much is a headache.
Q: Your organic sulfur MSM is plant-based?
A: Yes, it comes from pine lignans from pine trees in the United States.
Q: It is a petrochemical derivative?
Q: What is MSM?
A: MSM is short for methylsulfonylmethane, a derivative of DMSO patented that seems to have all beneficial anti-stress, anti-aging and anti-pain effects of DMSO. The MSM is odorless, therefore it delivers these results without having the major drawbacks of DMSO.
D: The MSM is found in nature?
A: Yes, the MSM occurs naturally in many foods when they are completely fresh when the soil is not cultivated intensively, particularly in green plants, in some algae, and different varieties of fruits, vegetables, cereals, and in some types of fish and meat. But it's quickly lost as soon as the food is no longer fresh, and it is effectively destroyed by the heat involved in the practice of cooking any food.
Q: How safe is it?
A: The MSM is as safe as any other natural food product (when using pharmaceutical grade MSM). By comparison, it is as safe as wholefood vitamin C (not the synthetic one, which in itself is very safe).
Q: How much do I need?
A: The daily doses that are recommended for adults range from 5 to 15 grams twice a day. Minor amount of MSM seem necesary when it is taken with the "correct" amount of vitamin C.
Q: I have mercury/amalgam fillings, so is it safe to make use of organic sulfur MSM?
A: Yes, the mercury will be released by the body as mercury sulphate in the stool.
Q: How much powder MSM is in one package?
A: One package has 454 grams of organic sulphur.
Take with filtered water 2x a day (avoid tap water). The two assumptions should be spaced at least 8 hours. Its preferable to take the second dose within 5 pm because of energy production, that in some cases causes a slight insomnia that disappears as soon as you take it as described above. The majority of people consume it half an hour before dinner without any problems. It is not recommended to take with food or immediately after eaten a meal.
Being bitter, if you take for example, 1 tablespoon at a time, it is better to take half spoon twice in succession with 250 ml of filtered water. Alternatively you can add it in a 250 ml glass of warm filtered water. It 's very important to drink at least 2-3 liters of water a day to allow the body to get rid of toxins.
Start with half a teaspoon per day (approximately 2 g), then after a few days move to a half teaspoon twice a day, and within 2-3 weeks up to two tablespoons per day (depending on your weight). To roughly calculate your dosage keep in mind that a person of 80 kg should take twice about 15 grams of organic sulfur a day to detox. As long-term maintenance just a spoon/teaspoon once a day (in the morning) should be sufficient (depends on diet and stress).
The first few days there might be the effects of detoxification, but normally they are only temporary. In this case reduce the dose and increase it after a few days. If you'll notice the sulphur crystals aggregate, it is normal because it contains no harmful additives. Organic sulphur could lose its effectiveness when taken together with supplements or additives with silica /silicon /silicon dioxide so if you can eat it half an hour before the other supplements (unless you are sure that no additives of silica are present).
Always consult your physician before use, especially those wishing to consume sulphur in higher dosages than those indicated.
99.9% of organic sulphur (MSM - methyl sulfenil methane) and 0.1% water.
One package contains 454 grams of organic sulphur powder in the form of crystals (the purest available).
Selection and Mission Statement
We strive to offer only the best of the best products worldwide. Most online shops always state the same:”We have the best, most natural products!”, so what makes us different?
Please check our Beyond Natural Fitoplus Selection Standard:
1) our selection of supplements are searched and verified by our Naturopaths, which are the most appassionate professionals in natural and organic ingredients. Naturopaths love herbs and whatever no side effect treatments Mother Nature has to offer. They study ingredients with passion. It’s connnected with their life mission, with their soul, therefore it’s effortless and not money driven.
2) We only choose brands that have high ethic values, which invest a lot in research and in sourcing the purest ingredients. We also have our ways of “verifying” the company owner or director – if he/she has whatever attitude we do not feel in alignment with our core values, we will not sell his products, even if they are very good. We believe that every aspect of a company is an extension of the people who own it and who manage it, therefore also the products.
3) we avoid as much as possible any synthetic ingredient that can be harmful or toxic to our bodies. We sell products free of GMOs, synthetic substances, gluten, dairy, conservatives, stimulants, additives, synthetics perfumes, and animal testing. 99% of our products are truly natural.
In very few cases we allow, for example, a flowing agent called magnesium stearate which is present in many supplements, and is considered generally safe, when it’s not. Magnesium stearate is frequently made with low quality vegetable oils (it’s cheaper) which can be loaded with heavy metals. When we do rarely accept such product in our Fitoplus Selection, it is because at this moment, we cannot find worldwide a better alternative. Better for us doesn’t mean only more natural, but it also has to produce results.
When we sell a product with magnesium stearate, we ask the manufacturer the heavy metal lab analysis of the vegetable oils they use to produce magnesium stearate. If it is ok, we accept the product – this is how far we go to ensure safety to our clients.
4) we obviously cannot check personally the ingredients and the production processes of all facilities worldwide, but instead we do choose brands with GMP (Good Manufacturing Policy) certification or HACCP certification, which guarantees maximum safety and quality. Where GMP certification is not necessary, we request the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets).
5) we always verify how does the manufacturer extract the ingredient, what is the technological process he uses, because it can downgrade the ingredient or considerably enhance it. The final result is the rate of cellular absorption of the ingredient. Everything depends on whether your cells can access and use the supplements you take, and at what percentage. If your absorption rate is low, you are literally throwing away your money through the window. We passionately focus on offering products with the highest possible absorption rate at a cellular level.
6) we constantly verify the market in search of new products which could be superior than the ones we already sell. When we do, we frequently switch to the new product, letting go of the previous one, even if we were selling it well. That is how badly we want to offer only the best of the best, at the cost of even losing some clients, because not everyone likes changing to a new and better solution, even if vastly superior.
Another reason why we do this is because we want to minimize your “stress of choice”. Choosing between five liver cleanse products is more time consuming, than choosing the only one available. When you see that one and only product for a symptom or discomfort, you already know you’re choosing the best, and no extra search and evaluation is needed, even though we always encourage it.
7) our Fitoplus Selection is not based on trends, but on our experience we build through our free Naturopath Consultings Service. We only sell products we personally use and that we suggest to our clients, who are people. And people are not numbers.
