Boron

Some interesting facts about boron:

  • Boron is a trace mineral
    Boron is a trace mineral, which means only very small amounts of this mineral are required to enable the proper functioning of the body and to enable good health.
  • Boron is needed to metabolise the minerals calcium and magnesium
    Boron is required for the body to be able to metabolise calcium and magnesium so that the calcium can be used to re-mineralise the bones (and teeth) and the magnesium can be used to help the bones grab the calcium and use it. Studies have also shown that boron reduces the rate of calcium excretion and increases blood serum levels of calcium.
Boron has only recently been discovered to be essential for bone health, due to its effect on the re-mineralisation of bone and prevention of bone loss, which strengthens the bones and keeps them healthy
  • Boron helps the body be able to use vitamin D
    Boron is required for the body to utilise vitamin D in the absorption of calcium and the mineralisation of bone tissue.
  • Boron is essential for healthy bones
    Boron has only recently been discovered to be essential for bone health, due to its effect on the re-mineralisation of bone and prevention of bone loss, which strengthens the bones and keeps them healthy. Boron is considered to be one of the important nutrients for ensuring bones are healthy and to prevent osteoporosis (together with calcium, magnesium and vitamin D).
