Rewarded Review

Broke my 4th metatarsal bone in my right foot and along with taking D-3/K-2, L-Lysine, B-Complex, and Cissus Quadrangularis, this has helped tremendously in healing my fracture faster than without taking it. Plus it us just a good supplement to take if anyone needs extra bone friendly vitamins who can't ingest like dairy.

Boron is for the parathyroids what iodine is for the thyroid. Boron deficiency causes the parathyroids to become overactive, releasing too much parathyroid hormone which raises the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from bones and teeth. This then leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay. With advancing age, high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries; arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. Boron deficiency combined with magnesium deficiency is especially damaging to the bones and teeth. The quality is great and delivery also.

NOW Foods,Boron, 3 mg, 250 Veg Capsules Excellent! My husband has been taking Life Extension Brand Boron for years, based on having read several studies showing that boron very substantially reduces the risk of prostate cancer. Good value in my humble opinion for a prostate cancer prophylactic. I have also started supplementing with boron, after it was featured in my natural health newsletter for women.

Rewarded Review

Mineral deficiency is a lack of the dietary minerals, the micronutrients that are needed for an organism's proper health. The cause may be a poor diet, impaired uptake of the minerals that are consumed, or a dysfunction in the organism's use of the mineral after it is absorbed. These deficiencies can result in many disorders including anemia and goitre. Examples of mineral deficiency include, zinc deficiency, iron deficiency, and magnesium deficiency. I feel good after having a try of this so that I won't have mineral deficiency.

I've been taking these for a couple of years instead of calcium. It is hard to measure benefits as I haven't ceased taking them to find out! In addition, I take biotin and collagen and my nails are much better. My back has a genetic deformity so I'm just doing what I can to keep bones strong. The size of the capsules are nice and small. Price is very good.

I am a 40 year old male, I had hormone blood tests which showed that my testosterone levels verging on the below normal levels. So I did some research and purchased this Boron as well as Zinc. Did my blood tests again three mins later and my testosterone levels had increased by 20% So I definitely recommend Life extension Boron!

Boron helps absorb Vitamin D and Magnesium more effectively. If you have white spots on your fingernails, you are probably deficient in Boron, and should consider taking a supplement. Taking 6mg or less of boron supplements a day is unlikely to cause any harm. An underrated micronutrient. As a trace mineral that is found in soil, it helps plants with seed development. In humans there is evidence it is beneficial for a variety of processes in the body. Life Extension Boron comes in a very manageable sized capsule which is easy to swallow. Do give me a like if you find this review helpful! Thanks!

Inexpensive addition to my own arsenal. Turkey and Israel have the lowest incidence of cases of arthritis due to the presence of Boron in their soil. I am 60. Been taking it for the past 2-3 years consistently. Never suffered any knee pains. Could be this supplement? I am inclined to think so.
