Boron, a trace mineral, doesn't get the attention that other more recognized nutrients receive. But it plays an important role in supporting healthy aging. For instance, as we get older, supporting bone health needs to become a higher priority in order to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Boron helps encourage healthy bone growth and mineralization.
The mineral boron has the potential for wide-ranging health benefits, from immune system to bone health support.Boron Benefits

Boron is a mineral needed in trace amounts for optimal health. It has beneficial effects on supporting bone health and nervous system function. It also supports optimal immune function and antioxidant activity.
Boron encourages healthy bone growth and mineralization. This effect appears to be due in part to activation and stabilization of vitamin D and positive impacts on supporting estrogen metabolism. In healthy men, boron was found to encourage free testosterone levels. Boron supplementation has been shown to help maintain joint comfort and maintain healthy hormone activity.
In a randomized controlled trial, boron supplementation was found to inhibit discomfort at the beginning of the menstrual cycle, presumably by helping to promote a healthy inflammatory response.
Research suggests humans require a minimum of 1 mg of boron per day to maintain optimal health, but despite its prevalence in fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts, it appears many people don’t get this amount on a regular basis. A daily intake of 3 mg per day is recommended to support bone health.
