An Overlooked Active Trace Mineral
The most common trace minerals that you are probably well acquainted with typically include iron, copper, calcium, magnesium and zinc. However, there are a wide variety of trace minerals out there that your body requires for daily bodily functions including hormone production, muscle movement, oxygen release and thyroid functioning. Trace minerals are organic compounds that aren’t produced naturally in the body, and must be acquired daily through diet or supplementation. They are called trace minerals because they are only required in trace amounts to receive the full benefits. All trace minerals are crucial for helping your body grow and develop in all stages of life. When it comes to diet and supplementation, Boron tends to be an overlooked trace mineral, however, its’ role on your overall health is just as important. Boron can usually be acquired through a balanced diet because it is found naturally in a wide variety of whole foods such as beans, nuts, avocados, berries, and oranges. The amount of Boron found in food drastically varies, depending on how much Boron is present in the soil where the crop was grown. This is why taking NOW Foods Boron supplements can be very beneficial to human health. Every serving of NOW Foods Boron supplements contains 3 mg of Boron - which is the perfect amount to be effective in helping to maintain healthy hormonal balance, improve bone density, and support optimal bone strength.
Boron Is Crucial For Calcium and Magnesium Metabolism
Boron is most commonly known for the role it plays in bone health. Many scientists and healthcare professionals believe that Boron is crucial for magnesium and calcium absorption into your bones. Boron allows for calcium and magnesium, the two main minerals that make up bone structure, to be directly distributed into the bones. This helps prevent serious issues with associated with bone health, such as bone loss or bone pain. Recent studies have shown that Boron may also help make Vitamin D more useful in the body, which is also an important nutrient for maintaining bone health. However, as with all minerals, Boron can be potentially toxic when taken in large quantities. To avoid having too much Boron present in the body, stick to the daily recommended dosage of NOW Foods Boron supplements and consult with a healthcare professional before use.
Now Foods Boron is a biologically active trace mineral which affects calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus metabolism. Now Foods Boron is known to support bone strength and structure in animals but its significance in humans is less certain. Boron is a nonmetallic element present in the diet and in the human body in trace amounts. 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.
