Atomic number 16. Today is day 16 and we are going to look at some vegetables with plenty of sulfur. Why eat it? Just look HERE!

Foods High in Sulfur

Sulfur is found in all food that is protein-based, and no recommended dietary allowance has been established for its intake. But eating sulfur-rich foods will increase and amplify the benefits of this often overlooked nutrient. Eating whole food is the best way to get the nutritional value of a food, but supplements offer another option.
