Sulfate is associated with your body’s use of glutathione, an amino acid critical for removing toxins that is also a powerful antioxidant. Many disease processes can be adversely influenced by glutathione insufficiency. Sulfate levels are reflective of your body’s sulfur containing amino acid status.
Sulfate is an indicator of your liver’s efficiency in removing many drugs, steroid hormones, and toxic compounds.
High sulfate may indicate that this pathway is very active.
Low sulfate indicates the fuel to run this pathway has been used up and the liver’s ability to remove toxic compounds is suppressed.
