Product Details

Health Benefits at a Glance:

Boron plays a role in helping to build bone strength by metabolizing magnesium and calcium in the formation of bones. Therefore, sufficient levels of this mineral in the body support the bone formation process, which may help to maintain normal bone strength, especially in older people. Furthermore, it may play a role in maintaining joint- and prostate health.

 

Why it Works:

A natural part of the aging process may be that the bones and joints in the human body become weaker. Insufficient boron levels might lead to negative changes in bone formation and maintenance [1]. The reason for this is that this mineral is an essential nutrient for calcium, magnesium and vitamin D metabolism which are all crucial for health bones [2-6]. Moreover, it may also support joint health. It may also affect human steroid hormone levels, and dietary intakes of this nutrient may support a healthy prostate [7-11]. Maintaining sufficient levels of this essential mineral can, therefore, help maintain normal bone strength as well as joint- and prostate health in old age.

 

The Science Behind the Product:

It has been shown that the trace mineral boron supports a healthy bone matrix. A lack of this mineral can result in the limited absorption of calcium and this mineral can often be underutilized [12].  Researchers have demonstrated that boron is a vital factor in facilitating the bone-building effects of key nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D. Many studies also reveal that it is essential to maintaining and improving bone health [12].

Researchers published a study about boron supplementation in postmenopausal women. It was shown that sufficient intake of this mineral is vital to preserving the body’s stores of bone-building calcium and magnesium [13].

New studies also indicate that it also plays a role in supporting healthy joints, a healthy prostate, preserving cognitive function, and may offer antioxidant protection [14-18].

How to Use:

Take one (1) capsule daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
