What is Boron?
Boron is a biologically active trace mineral that affects calcium, magnesium and phosphorus metabolism. Boron is known to support bone strength and structure.
Boron is essential to plant growth and in turn finds its way into the human diet. Boron is present in plant foods such as fruits (especially plums, grapes, and avocados), vegetables, nuts, and legumes.
Despite its availability in nature, ingesting adequate amounts of boron can be difficult as Boron levels in plant food may be low and modern dietary habits indicate people do not eat enough fruit and vegetables.
