Bowel Wars: Hydrogen Sulfide vs. Butyrate

  1. Apparently fatty meat is low in sulphur. There are high / low sulphur lists online that don't list any sulphur at all for certain meats but I'm wondering how accurate they are. Why exactly are fattier meats lower in sulphur, does anyone know? And what is the science behind this?

  2. I hear keto experts boasting about BHB or beta hydroxy butyrate as a direct byproduct of their diet. Is this the same as the butyric acid (butyrate) produced in the gut on high carb/high fiber diet you would find from plant based eating?

  3. Interesting, I've read that sulfur is important for methylation process and helpfull in arthiritis, that's why NAC, MSM or glucosamine sulfate are helpfull and garlic, onions and cruciferous veggies are healthy. I read also that there is correlation between arthitis and vulcanic sulfur rich soil (never saw the paper).
    I tried moment ago non sulfated apricots, only 3, and my stomach hurts, never got any thing like this before with regular ones threated with sulfur dioxide.

  4. High sulfur foods or sulfites make my ulcerative colitis worse.
    If I feel a flare coming I smoke cigarettes for a few weeks then taper off, while increasing healthy soluble fibers like sweet potatoes.

    Hydrogen cyanide from cigarette smoke reacts with hydrogen sulfide to produce the nontoxic isothiocyanate.

    Smoking is so terrible and hard to quit, I'm thinking of trying adding cassava root to my diet instead, as the edible cooked variety of cassava creates small amounts of cyanide into the gut.

    I really think there needs to be R&D into drugs that mimic this Hydrogen Sulfide neutralizing effect for flare treatment of UC.

  5. And there's also test showing that to much SCFA's like butyrate are bad for you.. Basically everyone needs a balance of all foods….who would of thought!
