What Is Dietary Boron Used For

Benefits And Uses For Boron:

Boron is a trace mineral that works with Calcium and Magnesium to help bones develop and grow.  Boron assists in synthesizing Vitamin D, estrogen and testosterone.  It may be useful as a natural substitute to hormone replacement therapy for post-menopausal women.  It is thought to be useful to treat osteoporosis and arthritis.

Deficiency Symptoms Of Boron:

Poor mineral metabolism, inadequate estrogen and testosterone production, decreased sperm count, inadequate bone development.

Toxicity (Overdose) Symptoms Of Boron:

1-10 mg per day is considered safe, but significantly higher doses may lead to loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and skin rashes.

Foods High In Boron:

Alfalfa, pears, grapes, apples, nuts, legumes, green leafy vegetables.

Supplements Of Boron:

No recommended daily amount has been established, but should be around 1 mg.  We recommend consulting your doctor before taking higher doses for any purpose.

Health And Fitness For Life:

If you're looking to nutrition for health and fitness, you probably want a healthy life...not just body or looks...but mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
