As an important mineral, Boron is needed by the body in trace amounts for healthy bones, muscle growth and more. Trophic offers Boron in a superior 3mg amino acid chelate form, designed for enhanced absorption. Boron helps to prevent loss of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus through the urine. Regular supplementation may be helpful for those concerned with osteoarthritis and other bone related conditions.
Boron is an important trace mineral that has largely been ignored for health maintenance and freedom from disease. This is unfortunate, as it is extremely important and as a health supplement, can have profoundly beneficial effects.

I owe my own discovery of it to Dr. Rex E. Newman Phd for his valuable study of Boron extending over many years. He has written the book ‘Beating Arthritis & Beating osteoporosis’ (Printed by Ellesmere Press Ltd. The British School, Otley Street, Skipton, Yorkshire. UK.)
Boron is LIKELY SAFE for adults and children when used in doses less than the Upper Tolerable Limit (UL) (see dosage section below). There is some concern that doses over 20 mg per day, the UL for adults, might harm a man’s ability to father a child.
Boric acid, a common form of boron, is LIKELY SAFE when used vaginally for up to six months. It can cause a sensation of vaginal burning.
Boron is POSSIBLY UNSAFE for adults and children when taken by mouth in high doses. Large quantities of boron can cause poisoning. Signs of poisoning include skin inflammation and peeling, irritability, tremors, convulsions, weakness, headaches, depression, diarrhea, vomiting, and other symptoms.
Also, boric acid powder, a common form of boron, is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when applied in large amounts to prevent diaper rash.
Special Precautions & Warnings:
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Boron is LIKELY SAFE for pregnant and breast-feeding women age 19-50 when used in doses less that 20 mg per day. Pregnant and breast-feeding women age 14 to 18 should not take more than 17 mg per day. Taking boron by mouth in high doses is POSSIBLY UNSAFEwhile pregnant and breast feeding. Higher amounts may be harmful and should not be used by pregnant women because it has been linked to birth defects. Intravaginal boric acid has been associated with a 2.7- to 2.8-fold increased risk of birth defects when used during the first 4 months of pregnancy.
Hormone-sensitive condition such as breast cancer, uterine cancer,ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: Boron might act like estrogen. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, avoid supplemental boron or high amounts of boron from foods.
Kidney disease or problems with kidney function: Do not take boron supplements if you have kidney problems. The kidneys have to work hard to flush out boron.
