Boron is an essential trace mineral in plant, animal and human nutrition. Boron is useful for the treatment of amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, epilepsy and elevated uric acid. Recent research supports the use of boron for the promotion of bone and joint health as boron indicates estrogen-mimetic and anti-osteoporotic activity. It may also participate in regulating the respiratory burst of neutrophils. There is less evidence that it may be helpful in enhancing mental cognition. Our Catalyzed Boron has a high therapeutic dose and is flavoured with fructose for greater patient compliance. Our phytogenic mineral catalyst is included for maximum nutrient utilisation.

Pharmacology and Research of Active Ingredients:
- Boron plays a role in cell-membrane functions that influence response to hormone action, trans-membrane signalling and trans-membrane movement of regulatory ions. Boron has been shown, in animal models, to influence the transport of extracellular calcium and the release of intracellular calcium in platelets activated by thrombin. It also influences redox actions involved in cellular membrane transport in plants.
- Boron acts as a metabolic regulator in several enzymatic systems. Boron may play an important role in regulating the respiratory burst, which is the reactive-oxygen-species mechanisms by which white blood cells kill micro-organisms.
- Dietary boron has been shown to affect several aspects of mineral metabolism in animal studies. And in a human study, 12 postmenopausal women were fed a diet deficient in boron (0.25 mg daily) for 119 days followed by a 48-day period in which they received supplements of 3 mg daily. On the boron-deficient diet, the women experienced increased loss of both calcium and magnesium. On the boron-supplemented diet, the opposite was true. Urinary excretion of calcium and magnesium was significantly diminished, and serum concentrations of 17 beta-estradiol, as well as testosterone, increased.
- Findings to date suggest that boron and calcium actions are inter-related or that the two elements affect similar systems, including the modification of hormone action, the alteration of cell membrane characteristics and/or trans-membrane signalling. Boron appears to be a very important partner with calcium metabolism and as such should be expected to play an important role in the prevention of osteoporosis.
- Epidemiological findings, suggest that supplemental boron may alleviate the symptoms of osteoarthritis. There are reports that in those areas of the world where daily dietary intake of boron is 1 mg or less the estimated incidence of osteoarthritis range from 20 to 70%. In areas of the world where boron intakes are 3 to 10 mg daily, the estimated incidence of the disease ranges from 0 to 10%.
- Phytogenic Mineral Catalyst – Our Polyfloramin™extracts contain up to 72 trace elements for enhanced bioavailability, assimilation and synergy of the active ingredients contained in our Boron formula.
T J Clark’s Boron formula may be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of;
- Decreases peak insulin secretion from pancreas, improves production of antibodies, improves energy utilisation (movement of ATP ions across cell membranes)
- Bone development and maintenance.
- Activation of vitamin D and certain steroid hormones, arthritis and osteoporosis.
- Doses up to 18 mg of boron daily appear to be safe for adults even if taken for prolonged periods of time. There is no evidence that boron is either carcinogenic or mutagenic. No adverse effects have been observed in either premenopausal or postmenopausal women using boron supplements.
