Boron Powder

An essential micronutrient mineral

** Boron is a chemical element with symbol B and atomic number 5.
Produced entirely by cosmic ray spallation and supernovae and not by stellar nucleosynthesis, it is a low abundance element in the Solar system and in the Earth's crust.

** Boron is a mineral that is found in food and the environment. People take boron supplements as medicine.

** Boron is used for building strong bones, treating osteoarthritis, as an aid for building muscles and increasing testosterone levels, and for improving thinking skills and muscle coordination.

** Boron deficiency first affects the cell walls or reproductive organs... Because some crops make it difficult to visually see a boron deficiency, the best strategy for Boron is to prevent deficiency with soil application of the micronutrient.

** Boron is absorbed as boric acid by plant's roots.

** Role of Boron in plants:

** Boron is used with calcium in cell wall synthesis and is essential for cell division (creating new plant cells). Boron requirements are much higher for reproductive growth so it helps with pollination, and fruit and seed development.

**Boron compounds play a strengthening role in the cell walls of all plants, making boron a necessary plant nutrient.

** Foods high in boron:

** Many plant- based foods offer decent to wonderful amounts of boron.
Some of the best include:
Chicpeas, almonds, beans, vegetables, bananas, walnuts, avocado, broccoli, prunes, oranges, red grapes, apples, raising, pears, and many other beans and legumens.

** We get most of our boron from our diets.

** Best Food Sources of Boron:
* Beans(black, lima, kidney, snap, peas, mung)
* Artichokes
* Berries
* Cherries
* Sweet potatoes
* Onions
* Pecans
* Walnuts
* Figs
* Prunes/Plums
* Peaches
* Apricots
* Cocoa
* Apples
* Pears
* Avocado
* Grapes(and pure grape juice)
* Oranges
* Coffee
* Red wine
* Raw milk( Organic unpasteurized).

** Boron acts as a natural food preservative within foods.

** Health Benefits of Boron:

** 1) Increases Concentration and Brain Function:
Boron is often thought as a "brain-nutrient.
It improves brain function, helps boost concentration, focus and the ability to learn new information.

** 2) Helps Reverse Arthritis:
Boron plays an important role in integrating calcium into the joints cartilage, prevents joint deterioration and worsened arthritis pain.

** 3) Strengthen Bones:
Prevents bone loss by facilitating calcium, the main mineral involved in bone mineralization, directly into the bones.

** 4) Balances Hormones:
As a mineral that balances levels of sex hormones in both women and men including estrogen and testosterone, boron is useful for reducing PMS and menopause symptoms, as well as increasing fertility.

** 5) Promotes Healthy Muscle Mass:
Certain vitamins and minerals are better absorbed by the body when boron levels are higher, which is important for building muscle.
** Boron is used by many athletes and bodybuilders because it's believed to increase the body's ability to produce and use testosterone, so it's beneficial for recovering from excercise, preventing aches and pains, building muscle mass, and keeping bones strong.

** 6) Prevents and treats yeast infection:
Boron is an active ingredient in tablets used to treat yeast infections in women.
Boron, in the form of boric acid, is used as a natural alternative to messy, over-the-counter yeast infection, medicines or creams.

** 7) Heals Skin and Prevents Infection:
Useful for lowering redness, inflammation, pain and other signs of irritation.

** Boron is also used as a natural eye wash to help kill bacteria within the eyes that can lead to stress and other infections.

** 8 ) Fights Diabetes:
It appears that boron helps with the metabolism of carbohydrates and the production of Insulin from the pancreas that better controls stable blood sugar levels.

** Boron uses even include the ability to help animals suffering from pain. Horses, sheep and other domesticated animals that develop signs of arthritis are sometimes given boron supplements to ease pain and inflammation.

** In fact, because levels of boron in foods are highly dependant on how healthy the soil is where the crops are grown, animals that graze on depleted soils low in
boron usually have less muscle, and more bone and joint pain as they age than animals raised on boron-rich soil.
