It affects your body’s calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus metabolism, is known to support your bone strength and structure, and may help reduce your risk of osteoporosis.

Why a Supplement?
Some of the top dietary sources to incorporate Boron into your diet include almonds, avocados, raisins, apricots, red-kidney beans, prunes, walnuts, Brazil nuts, peanut butter, lentils, dates, and chickpeas. But research recommends that you get at least 3 mg of Boron per day, and many people do not eat enough of these fruits, vegetables, and nuts to accomplish that on a regular basis. What’s more, modern farming techniques mean that the foods you eat are not getting as much nutrition from the soil and water as it used to. Taking a supplement like NOW Foods Boron can help ensure that you’re making up for any shortfall in your diet.
Boron protects and improves bioavailability of important nutrients in your body, acting as a catalyst to help your body work smarter. For example, calcium and Vitamin D work together to protect and strengthen your bones, but your body needs Vitamin D to absorb calcium or your body will take it from where it can find it – in your bones. Clinical studies have shown that Boron helps increase calcium absorption, even in people suffering from Vitamin D deficiency. In fact, 90% of Vitamin-D-deficient patients in one study experienced a tremendous 24% increase in Vitamin D3 serum levels in just 60 days!
Bone Up with Boron!
Boron supplementation also has been shown to help increase your bone-mineral content and help increase your bone strength. What’s more, it can increase the cell survival rate in your bones and actually may be regenerative for bone formation. One long-term study found that Boron works on the molecular level, regulating proteins by allowing your cells to secrete at a higher density, building bone strength. Research has demonstrated that taking a supplement like NOW Foods Boron can improve your bone density in as little as 6 months!
A study carried out by the U.S. Department of Agriculture measured the benefits of Boron supplementation on the bones of postmenopausal women because Boron deficiency can lead to osteoporosis. It found that Boron plays a major role in how your body makes collagen, which is necessary for strong bones. In addition, Boron was found to help your body retain calcium for use in your bones – with subjects’ daily urinary secretion of calcium being reduced by 44% after taking a daily Boron supplement, suggesting the calcium stays longer in your bones when supported by Boron.
