Why Boron Is Important

Boron is quietly supporting your bones 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 works alongside other bone-supporting nutrients like Vitamin D, Calcium, and Magnesium to support your bone health.*

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 for sufficient intake of boron.

Working Along With Vitamin D

Boron works alongside Vitamin D in your body. Vitamin D supports calcium absorption and bone maintenance.; As Vitamin D’s co-worker, boron helps support your body’s bone health.*.

Ritual’s Boron

An adequate level of Boron intake has not been determined, but studies have suggested that 0.9 mg/day may help to support bone health in women. Ritual multivitamins contain 1 mg/serving of FruiteX-B, a boro-carbohydrate complex that mirrors what’s found in plants. It contains a combo of Calcium, Boron, and fructose. FruiteX-B is designed to replicate what’s found in nature. Human studies using FruiteX-B showed that it’s well-absorbed and works as a calcium-helper nutrient to help support your bones.*
