2 cloves chewed in small pieces with water or juice, 2X per day, i was told.
Later on i tried msm, dmso, but after several discussions with mit phd i became convinced sulfur dominates nitrogen reactions.
I use berberine sulfate, magnesium sulfate, zinc sulfate, msm, etc so as to dominate sulfur.
The way it was explained to me was-The body will use sulfur, then nitrogen, then carbon, in an effort to survive. When the body runs out of a material it will subsitute. The body will subsitute amino acids as well. This salvage backup process leads to poor repairs, dna errors, and poor recovery.
A little spirulina keeps amino acid supply adaquate.
