Boron is a mineral that is available through plants in our diet. The boron we take is mostly in the form of hydrolyzed boric acids.

Boron supports healthy levels of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, three of the most important minerals for the bone metabolic function1.* Large number of studies, both in vitro and in vivo, have demonstrated the beneficial effect of boron for bone and joint health2-8.* Additional supplementation has also been observed to have positive effect on cognitive function, Vitamin D and estrogen functions, bone formation and immunity9-10.*
