Boron (3 mg)
- Free of
This rice chelate of boron provides a convenient high-yield source of boron, which influences the metabolism of nutrients involved in the maintenance of strong bones and may play a role in hormone regulation. Known to nutritional professionals as the "calcium helper", boron plays a vital role in bone health because it assists calcium absorption and utilization in the body.
Boron is found in relatively high levels in foods of plant origin, such as black beans, peaches, apricots, spinach, strawberries, apples, cantaloupe, and tomatoes. Many of us do not get enough of these items in our diet, and boron supplements can help. Low-boron diets have been associated with reduced testosterone levels, and boron supplements have been shown to increase serum levels of testosterone in deficient postmenopausal women.
Boron may help prevent atherosclerosis; improve brain function and cognitive functioning; reduce HDL-cholesterol; affect thyroid hormone levels; alleviate harmful effects of vitamin D, magnesium, and potassium deficiency in postmenopausal bone loss; play a role in the prevention of osteoporosis; be of benefit in the treatment of arthritis; and prevent calcium loss in postmenopausal women.
