Boron’s Benefits Are Strong
Boron is quietly supporting our 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 National Academy 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 bone health. How? Vitamin D supports calcium absorption and bone maintenance. So as vitamin D’s co-worker, boron helps support our body’s bone health.*
Boron-Rich Food Sources
Boron is an essential structural component of plant cell walls, so it can be readily found in a range of plant-based foods such as avocados, potatoes, raisins and almonds. (2) 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.
