Boron & Arthritis
Boron is one of the main minerals used in the bone building process of the body which directly acts as an activator. Boron helps convert vitamin D into its active state by initiating estrogen production. The estrogen then improves the absorption of calcium. This mineral also helps ensure the metabolism within the bone can function properly. In fact, because of its role in the body, Boron can actually assist in preventing arthritis and tooth decay.
The body depends on Boron to perform a large majority of its functions and when there is a Boron deficiency in the body, the parathyroid glands, small endocrine glands in the neck of humans, become overactive, causing the glands to release too much of the parathyroid hormone. As a result, the level of calcium in the blood increases as it’s released from the bones, joints, and teeth, into the blood stream. Several resulting symptoms of Boron deficiencies include, arthritis, brittle bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative joint disease, hormonal imbalances, loss of libido, memory loss, muscle pain, osteoporosis, receding gums, and weak joint cartilage. Bone analysis have previously shown that arthritis joints and nearby bones contain only half the Boron content of healthy joints.
Boron supplements can help reduce the daily loss of calcium by nearly 50%. Because this calcium is mainly withdrawn from the bones and teeth, Boron deficiencies are considered to be the most important factors in causing arthritis, osteoporosis, and tooth decay today. Boron supplements are actually considered to be an effective treatment for up to 95% in the relief of arthritis, provided the joint has not completely deteriorated.

Boron is one of the necessary minerals for building and repairing joint cartilage and the proper level of this mineral in the body is important as it helps maintain proper levels of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Boron can help alleviate arthritis due to its crucial role of calcium integration into the cartilage and bone. This can be very important for anyone despite not being previously diagnosed with arthritis. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
