Boron is a mineral that is found our natural environment and is necessary to maintain optimal health and wellness. Mineral depletion and the use of chemical fertilizers are detrimental to health. Chemical-based fertilizers inhibit uptake of nutrients, including boron and reduce the mineral content of our food. Combined with the fast food revolution and poor diet quality, boron intake has dropped drastically over the decades.
Boron is essential for integrity and function of cell walls, signal transmission across membranes, bone health and dental enamel, making it an important nutrient for optimal health. Boron is distributed throughout the body, with highest concentrations in the parathyroid glands, bones, and teeth. Boron regulates absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Deficiency leads to overactive parathyroid resulting in increases in parathyroid hormone. Outcomes of low boron levels may be osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and tooth decay. A combined deficiency in boron and magnesium can be extremely damaging to bones and teeth.
Possible health benefits of boron include:
- Ease swollen and irritated tissues and associated discomfort
- Promote the building of healthy, strong bones
- Help maintain the proper function of cell membranes
- Support optimal brain and cognitive functions
