Boron

Boron is needed in trace amounts for healthy bones and muscle growth.

It’s also needed for the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium.

Boron enhances brain function, promotes alertness, and plays a role in how your body uses energy from fats and sugars.

Most people aren’t deficient in boron.

However, elderly people usually benefit from taking a supplement of 2-3 mg daily because they have greater problems with calcium absorption.

Boron deficiency accentuates vitamin D deficiency.

Boron helps to prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis and build muscle.

New research shows taking supplemental boron can shrink prostate tumor size, lower blood levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA, a marker for prostate cancer), and may help prevent prostate cancer.

Boron alleviates joint discomfort and helps to preserve cognitive function.

Studies have shown in areas of the world where the level of boron in the soil is low there are more people suffering from arthritis.

A recent study showed within 8 days of supplementing their daily diet with 3 mg of boron, a test group of postmenopausal women lost 40% less calcium, 1/3 less magnesium, and slightly less phosphorus through their urine than they had before beginning boron supplements.

Sources

Boron is found naturally in apples, carrots, grapes, dark green leafy vegetables, raw nuts, pears, and whole grains.

Cautions

Don’t take more than 3-6 milligrams of supplemental boron daily unless prescribed by a health care professional.

Boron is toxic in high doses (15 mg or more daily for adults, less for children) but isn’t carcinogenic.

Many supplements for bone health contain 3 mg of boron.

If you’re also using a multivitamin/multimineral supplement, be sure your total intake through diet and supplements doesn’t exceed 20 mg.
