Boron is a trace mineral found in the natural environment and in foods including fruit (raisins, prunes, avocado, peaches, apples, pears) and legumes & nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, brazil, walnuts, peanuts, lentils, chickpeas). Used as a food preservative in the 1800s, Boron builds bone strength, muscle mass and coordination; increases testosterone levels, and improves cognitive skills. It is used in treatment of menstrual cramps, vaginal yeast infections, osteoporosis and athletic performance.
As it is essential to growth and bone maintenance, Boron may help Osteoporosis, but studies are inconclusive.
