Minerals & Nutrition > Boron

We need boron for healthy bones as it aids in the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. It also supports brain function and alertness.

Research has shown that boron increases the life span of some insects and used demonstrated to overcome the effects of vitamin D deficiency in test animals. It appears that boron, in combination with vitamin D enhances the mineral content of bone, while boron alone enhances the maturation of growth cartilage.

Boron is therefore beneficial to bone growth in animals and humans. The addition of dietary boron in animals increased femoral length, peak load bearing, and strength, as well as the peak load bearing and strength of the lumbar vertebra.
(Sullivan)

Boron Deficiency Symptoms:
  • Decreased calcium, magnesium and phosphorus levels
  • Decreased estrogen and testosterone synthesis
  • Breakdown of hormone function
  • Decreased vitamin D synthesis
  • Decreased steroid synthesis
Dietary Sources of Boron:
Fruits and vegetables, however, the concentration of boron in plants depends on adequate concentrations of boron in the soil the plants are grown in. Other good dietary sources of boron are legumes, pulses, nuts and nutritional supplements. A balanced vegetarian diet is thought to be higher in boron than many typical Western diets.
