The research on the mineral boron started many years ago, and the more it has been studied the more we realize how important this mineral is. It turns out that it is involved in a huge number of important functions (Pizzorno L, 2015).

The following article describes how low boron intake can affect brain function and cognitive performance (Penland JG, 1994).

 

When compared to high intake of boron, low boron intake resulted in significant poorer performance in several areas, some of were eye-hand coordination, attention, long and short-term memory.

 

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted on patients diagnosed

with osteoarthritis 2 common inflammatory markers, highly sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and TNF-alpha decreased significantly after 1 week of boron supplementation (Naghil MR, et.al., 2011).

 

Boron supplementation has even showed benefits for rheumatoid arthritis.

After 60 days of supplementation with boron, a significant decrease in the inflammatory markers erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein (CRP), IL-1alpha, IL-6 and TNF-alpha were found (Hussain SA, et.al., 2016).

 

Symptoms were also improved.
