How Boron Can Save You from Osteoporosis?!

If we don’t consume enough fruits (especially nuts) then it is possible appearance of the condition when the level of the boron in our organism is decreased significantly. That condition could produce the disbalance of calcium metabolism and our bones could become breakable.

Also the decreased level of boron could increase the level of estrogen into the blood and at the same increasing the level of other elements which could lead to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is actually calcium loss process and demineralization of the bones’ tissue. This is very often process at women at postmenopausal period.

The necessary daily dose of boron is 3 mg per day. This amount could be provided by two apples and 100 gr of peanuts and that is enough quantity as daily dose to prevent the calcium loss for 40%.

Except the nuts the boron is present at: apples, pears, grapes (and its seed), peaches, honey, wine, beer, soya and into the apple wine.

The symptoms of less boron are not very analyzed except the fact that is noticed the dissatisfied growth and development of the lab animals. The symptoms of high levels of boron (which is also dangerous) are: nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, weakness and lethargy.
