Calcium metabolism along with bone and joint health require boron. Research indicates it also supports cognitive and memory performance and certain types of arthritis. Studies have shown increased dexterity and hand-eye coordination with supplementation.

Boron is an essential nutrient for optimal calcium metabolism and healthy bones and joints.34,53,58,59,168 Boron may affect human steroid hormone levels. Dietary boron intake may support a healthy prostate.169-173

Boron appears to be a nutritionally essential mineral for the proper metabolism of other minerals especially calcium and subsequently bone metabolism.3 Supplementation may support bones and joints, the brain, and the kidneys.1,2

Results from various studies suggest an improvement in cognitive and psychomotor tasks. Those that took the supplements showed better manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination, increased ability to pay attention, and cognitive and memory performance.1

Other studies have shown less than optimal amounts of boron intake may cause detrimental changes in the bones due to reduced calcium metabolism.4 Boron may also be involved the way the kidneys convert vitamin D to 1,25-(OH)2D3 which is 10 times more powerful than vitamin D3 help build bones.5 Reduced amounts of boron have suggested that supplementation helps prevent excessive bone loss which postmenopausal women and mature men often suffer.4

Other reports indicate boron supplements appear to delay the onset and severity of certain types of arthritis. A human study suggests a substantial improvement in osteoarthritis with those that took boron vs a placebo.6
