The Fructo Borate Complex is back!!!
Here are some of the reasons why Fructo Borate is important:
Fructo Borate Complex is a plant form of the mineral boron that is based on how boron is found in plants— a covalently bound boron to plant carbohydrate. When boron is not tightly bound, it can become toxic in our gut as it forms boric acid.
In the Fructo Borate, each boron ion is strongly bound to two plant – fructose molecules. Therefore it passed into the systemic circulation without disassociating with its carbohydrate bond. Preventing it from turning into boric acid in the gut.
Boron is considered to be a master mineral and is a co-factor in many metabolic functions. Each capsule provides 6 mg of elemental boron. In areas of the world where boron dietary intakes usually were 1mg or less/day, the estimated incidence of arthritis ranged from 20% to 70%. On the other hand, in areas of the world where boron dietary intakes were usually 3mg to 10mg, the estimated incidence of arthritis ranged from 0% to 10% (Newnham, R.E., 1994).
In Nothing boring about boron, Pizzorno (2015) nicely summarizes some of boron’s many benefits: (1) is essential for the growth and maintenance of bone; (2) greatly improves wound healing; (3) beneficially impacts the body’s use of estrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D; (4) boosts magnesium absorption; (5) reduces levels of inflammatory biomarkers, such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and TNF alpha; (6) raises levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as SOD, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase; (7) protects against pesticide-induced oxidative stress and heavy-metal toxicity; (8) improves the brains electrical activity, cognitive performance, and short-term memory for elders; (9) influences the formation and activity of key biomolescules, such as SAM-e and NAD+; (10) has demonstrated preventive and therapeutic effects in a number of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, and lung cancers, and multiple and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma; and (11) may help ameliorate the adverse effects of traditional chemotherapeutic agents.

Boron is one of the most important minerals in our diet. How are your boron levels?
The average American’s boron levels are 1 mg/day; and, many studies have shown that the benefits to be derived from boron intake don’t occur until levels of 3 mg/day and above are achieved (Price et al., 2012).
