Boron Published Studies

Boron is a mineral that should occur naturally in our soil. It is also a mineral that should be part of our daily diet because it is essential for plant health, animal health and likewise human health.

Boron is found primarily in the vegetable kingdom (plants), which draw boron directly up from the soil from which it grows and is then converted using sugars into a readily absorbed salt called borates.

Unfortunately, due to conventional agriculture, there is hardly any boron left in natural soil particularly here in Australia.

With the vast majority of Australian soils being deficient in boron and permanently cultivated, soils are not what they used to be.

Once boron was added by farmers, but unfortunately, this is no longer a common practice. With the use of growth accelerators, artificial fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides, such as, glyphosate becoming standard in conventional agriculture, the minerals required for good health are further compromised.

Substances like above work like a binder for the minerals, so the minerals are ultimately no longer available to the plants and subsequently missing from our diet.

Boron has been long proven to be one of the most important trace minerals, because it is essential for so many functions in the body, the following is just a few...

  • Stem cell growth, signalling, and proliferation.
  • The growth and maintenance of bone.
  • Improved wound healing.
  • Beneficially impacts the body's use of estrogen, testosterone, calcium, and vitamin D.
  • Boosts magnesium absorption.
  • Reduces levels of inflammatory biomarkers, such as hs-CRP and TNF-α; raises levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as SOD, catalase, and glutathione peroxidise.
  • Protects against pesticide-induced oxidative stress and heavy-metal toxicity.
  • Improves brain electrical activity, cognitive performance, and short-term memory.
  • Influences the formation and activity of key biomolecules, such as SAM-e and NAD+.
  • Has demonstrated preventive and therapeutic effects in a number of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, and lung cancers and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The modern western diet is extremely lacking in boron.

Most research points to an intake of at least 3 - 10 mg/day if not at least 20mg/day to replenish our boron levels.

Unfortunately most modern diets are estimated to supply only 1 mg/day at best.​

Boron is found naturally in plants and is best absorbed by our body in its natural form found in fruit called, "Fructo-borate".
