Understanding Boron

The mineral, boron is naturally found in the environment and also in food. In addition, some people take supplemental boron to prevent or manage a boron deficiency. It is often used to treat such conditions as osteoarthritis and to build stronger bones. In addition, boron can be utilized to increase hormonal levels such as testosterone and it is sometimes used to improve cognitive skills and improving muscle coordination.  Boric acid, which is a common boron form is frequently used in the prevention of infection and is often used to flush out the eye when irritation occurs. Actually, boron was first used in the 1800 and 1900's as a preservative for some foods, during the first and second World Wars. Although generally considered safe, boric acid has the potential to cause birth defects, when it is taken intravaginally for infections, if used during the first trimester and early second trimester of pregnancy. In addition, since boron can act like the hormone estrogen, those who are at risk for estrogen sensitive cancers, such as breast, ovarian or uterine cancer, should avoid taking boron. In addition, individuals with kidney problems should avoid supplemental boron, as kidney problems make it more difficult for the kidneys to flush this mineral out of the body. Also, conditions such as uterine fibroids or endometriosis are estrogen dependent conditions. When the body is exposed to estrogen or substances that act like estrogen such as boron, these conditions may worsen.
