Scientist have linked the lack of boron in our diet to weaker bones. For women, especially after the onset of menopause, a low concentration of boron increases the excretion of calcium and magnesium as well as estradiol and testosterone, weakening the osteo skeleton system. Low boron level is also associated with the occurrence of arthritis: countries (such as the USA, Japan, China and Brazil) that have low boron in their soil and diet show increased incidences of arthritis.
Boron, as a naturally occurring element is part of everything in nature – it is found in our oceans, rocks, soil, plants, animals, and humans. Plants have the capacity to metabolize boric acid/borate (inorganic boron speciation) into sugar-borate esters, whereas humans do not have this capacity. This means that we need to get the kind of carbohydrate bound boron that is easily absorbed and utilized – boron with fructose molecules attached – the exact form our bodies require.
Fructo Borate is a natural boron with two fructose molecules that are attached to a boron ion, just as it is found in plants. Two capsules a day answer the body’s need for dietary boron to keep our bones and joints healthy. In research by Miljkovic et al. (2009), Fructo Borate was found to decrease joint pain and inflammation while increasing circulating hormones to aid in bone health and joint flexibility.
Fructo Borate: start with one capsule a day and increase to twice a day.

Transformation to healthy diets by 2050 will require substantial dietary shifts. Global consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes will have to double, and consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar will have to be reduced by more than 50%. A diet rich in plant-based foods and with fewer animal source foods confers both improved health and environmental benefits. (Walter Willett MD, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 2019)
