Boron

Boron: Main Image

How to Use It

A leading boron expert has suggested 1 mg per day of boron is a reasonable amount to consume.10 People who eat adequate amounts of produce, nuts, and legumes are likely already eating two to six times this amount.11 Therefore, whether the average person would benefit by supplementing with this mineral remains unclear.

Where to Find It

Raisins, prunes, and nuts are generally excellent sources of boron. Fruit (other than citrus), vegetables, and legumes also typically contain significant amounts. Actual amounts vary widely, depending upon boron levels in soil where the food is grown.

Possible Deficiencies

As boron is not yet considered an essential nutrient for humans, it is not clear whether deficiencies occur. However, diets that are low in fruit, vegetables, legumes, and nuts provide less boron than diets that contain more of these foods.
