Boron — The Essential that Most Don’t Know About

Woman with her arthritic hands in her lap.

I am more intrigued than ever with boron as an essential nutrient.

Soil contents of boron vary throughout the world and the higher the soil content of boron, the lower the rate of arthritis!

Boron is anti-osteoporotic, hypolipemic, anti-coagulant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer. It is critical to parathyroid function. Additionally, boron and magnesium deficiency may be the main cause of hyperthyroidism!

For men, the biggest interest in boron may be that it raises testosterone! In the first clear clinical study, 10 mg of boron daily for only 7 days significantly raised free levels of testosterone, lowered estradiol, and decreased 3 inflammatory markers, including HS-CRP, TNF-alpha, etc! J. Trace Elem Med Biol, 2011, 25:54-58.

Even more remarkable is the article by Rex Newnham, Ph.D., D.O., from Australia.

He found that 70% of patients with significant arthritis improved significantly with boron.

Among other metabolic successes, boron helps balance magnesium and calcium levels, may be of significant help in hyperthyroidism, and helps restore adequate hormonal levels in post-menopausal women.

I have collected over 100 pages of important reprints of articles emphasizing the benefits of boron. I now can say that I consider 3 mg of Boron ESSENTIAL for all people. Men over 50 may well want to take 9 mg daily for a week or so and then stay on 3 mg daily forever. Those with hyperthyroidism or rheumatoid or osteoarthritis or osteoporosis may want to take 9 mg daily for a few weeks and then stay on 3 mg forever. It appears that 10 mg daily is safe for most adults BUT do not exceed 3 mg daily in pregnancy, as excessive levels may harm the fetus! The Shealy-Sorin Wellness Shop has long carried 250 capsule bottles of boron. However, I strongly advise everyone to purchase the 250 capsule bottles and reorder them every 8 months!
