You're not going to find Vitamin S in any food or supplement
because it isn't a real vitamin.
It is a slang term for speed-amphetamins or steroids.
Without going into the VERY complicated explantion...steroids
are lipids. Lipids are essential for the structure and
function of all living cells. Lipids, among many plant
foods, can be found in algae and fungi. Algae and sea weed
include Spirulina. Spirulina ia a natural supplement that is
composed of nutritionally valuable microorganisms containing
vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants.
Spirulina are grown in tanks and harvested to be made into
nutritional supplements and are included in many bird
supplements and food.
Bottom line...the closest you'll come to Vitamin "S" that is
going to be readily available is Spirulina.
