What does boron do in the body?
Boron is naturally present in smaller amounts in the skeleton, and an adult has about 10 mg of boron in the body. Boron is interesting mainly as it interacts with magnesium and vitamin D and helps to prolong the life of vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D and magnesium in turn promote the metabolism of the important mineral calcium, which builds up bones and teeth. Research also suggests that boron interacts beneficially with glucosamine, MSM and chondroitin, which are common substances in supplements for joint health.
Several studies have been carried out on boron, where it has been concluded that an intake of the mineral can help prevent osteoarthritis in animals. Similar studies have also been carried out on people with interesting results. Boron has, among other things, played a role in several studies linked to arthritis, where 3-6 mg of boron per day has been used, with positive results without side effects (1,2).
The recommended dosage is 1 capsule 1-2 times daily.
