Boron's Understated Benefits

Essential Takeaways

  • Boron works with bone-supporting nutrients like Vitamin D, Calcium, and Magnesium to help with skeleton health.
  • Boron is an essential structural component of plant cell walls, so it can be readily found in a range of plant-based foods.

Why You Need Boron

Boron is quietly keeping your body healthy and your bones strong without begging for praise or attention. Because of its understated benefits, Boron has flown under the scientific community’s radar for many years. Despite the fact that the Institute of Medicine hasn’t set a daily value for boron, research has shown that boron partners with bone-supporting nutrients like Vitamin D, Calcium, and Magnesium to keep your skeleton strong.

How to Get It

Boron is an essential structural component of plant cell walls, so it can be readily found in a range of plant-based foods. Seeds, nuts, and veggies contain higher concentrations of boron than fruits and grains, so it’s important for us to consume a range of plants in order to achieve sufficient intake of boron.

Working With Vitamin D

Boron is an especially good friend to Vitamin D, helping it work more efficiently. Vitamin D supports calcium absorption and helps calcium stay in your bones; as Vitamin D’s helper, boron indirectly facilitates the vital roles of calcium in the body.

Ritual’s Boron

An adequate level of Boron intake has not been determined, but studies have suggested that 0.9 mg/day is enough to maintain bone health in women. Essential for Women and Essential Prenatal contains 1 mg of FruiteX-B, a boro-carbohydrate complex that’s identical to what’s found in plants. It contains a balanced combo of Calcium, Boron, and fructose. FruiteX-B is made from scratch so that it’s pure and identical to what’s found in nature. Human studies using FruiteX-B showed that it’s well-absorbed and can support healthy boron functions, helping your bones, joints, and brain make the most of Vitamin D and Magnesium.
