Boron and Bone Health

Laboratory studies show how boron helps maintain joints, bones, and cognitive functions, and may even help protect the prostate. Only a trace amount is needed to produce results. If you live in an area where boron is concentrated in the soil, then you may be getting enough naturally by eating a healthy diet. This important nutrient is typically absent in most multivitamins. Boron can also be found in liquid trace mineral supplements which are also a significant source of magnesium.
