Boron (B)

There are more to bone nutrients than just calcium. Boron (B) plays a very important role in bone health, and is needed for bone density and normal membrane function. In postmenopausal women who consume a very low diet of B, B supplementation is critical to keep calcium and magnesium in the bone and to balance serum levels of estrogen.

Toxic metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium, can interfere with the body’s ability to absorb and maintain healthy B levels. High levels of B are essentially non-toxic, but when levels are excessive, it can interfere with riboflavin-binding proteins in the body.

Toxic sources of B include:

  1. some soaps
  2. some cleaners
  3. cements
  4. ceramics
  5. glass
