Several studies have provided evidence that this trace mineral is required in calcium and bone metabolism to help prevent bone loss associated with osteoporosis. Several studies have also shown an association between sufficient boron intake and a reduction in the incidence of tooth decay. Studies have also linked optimal intakes of boron with enhanced memory, alertness and cognitive function. Some studies have shown that boron supplementation of 3 milligrams per day results in both calcium and magnesium retention and elevations in serum concentrations of testosterone and oestrogen. Men who consume optimal intakes of boron also have decreased risk of developing prostate cancers.
Elderly individuals benefit from supplementing their diet with 2 to 3 milligrams per day of boron due to a reduced ability to absorb calcium. Some research findings have indicated that boron is a "dynamic" trace element that can affect the metabolism of other substances involved in many processes including hormones such as oestrogen and thyroid hormone.
