Boron for Maintaining Healthy Joints and Reducing Osteoporosis and Arthritis

February 3rd, 2020

boron for bone health

When it comes to bone health, Calcium is the main mineral that comes to mind. Boron, which is an important and often underutilized trace mineral, has many health benefits you may not be aware of, such as bone health. Approximately 200 million people all over the world over the age of 50 suffer from osteoporosis and arthritis.

Osteoporosis is defined as a disease characterized by low bone mass and fragility, whereas arthritis results in inflammation of the joints. Although osteoporosis and arthritis are not life-threatening diseases, they increase the chance of future injuries like bone fractures and other uncomfortable problems, causing pain and resulting in a decreased quality of life. Boron, a highly underrecognized mineral, can help maintain healthy joints by adding bone density and reduce the chances for certain diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, especially for older people.

In this blog post, we will discuss how to get sufficient amounts of Boron in your diet, explain how Boron helps maintain healthy joints, while reducing the risk for osteoporosis and arthritis, as well as tell you the different forms of Boron that you can use in your dietary supplements to meet increasing consumer demand.

How To Get Enough Boron in Your Diet?

In order to get enough Boron in the diet, you can either consume foods rich in Boron or take dietary supplements. Boron can be found in nuts, beans, avocados, berries, leafy greens and much more. If, however, you cannot consume enough Boron rich foods on a daily basis, supplement with Boron to ensure optimal health.

How Does Boron Reduce the Risk for Osteoporosis and Arthritis?

Boron plays a very important role when it comes to maintaining healthy joints and reducing the risk for osteoporosis and arthritis. Boron not only has anti-inflammatory effects, but it also helps increase the absorption of Calcium into the bone, which helps add bone density and prevents weak bones. This, in turn, reduces joint pain and arthritis symptoms.

Research has shown time and time again that individuals who supplement with Boron have a reduced risk for arthritis compared to those who do not supplement with Boron.

In addition to increasing the uptake of Calcium into the bone, Boron can help the body not only produce more Vitamin D, but also increase the half-life of Vitamin D, which is another critical element for healthy bone growth. One study tested the effects of Boron on osteoporotic rats, in which they found that Boron may reduce bone loss in rats with osteoporosis.

Thus, supplementing with Boron can help prevent or reverse the early stages of osteoporosis, as long as it is taken within the limits of daily consumption.
