What’s The Deal With Boron: Holistic Benefits You May Not Know About Yet



Let’s take another dive into the world of holistic medicine! In this blog, we’ll be telling you all about BORON, a trace mineral that has been making the rounds in the TikTok world as a trending holistic approach to wellness. Everything sounds good on the internet, but is it really as great as everyone says it is? Let’s dive in!


What Exactly IS Boron?

Boron is a trace mineral that can be found in the Earth’s crust, but unless you plan to break off a chunk and start gnawing, that's not going to help you too much as far as your health is concerned. As far as people are concerned, boron can be found in small amounts within certain fruits, nuts and vegetables. A versatile mineral, its uses span a variety of industries. You have probably heard of - and may even use - Borox for cleaning purposes already!


All About Consumption: How Do I Get Boron In My Body?

As stated above, boron can be found in a variety of commonly consumed food items, including raisins, prunes, apricots, grapes, oranges, potatoes, carrots, peanuts, almonds, beans, lentils, chickpeas, wheat, oats, brown rice and more. While these foods naturally contain boron, the amount is minimal. To really dig into the benefits of boron, supplements are often used, whether that be capsules, tablets or liquid form. We recommend a tablespoon per day, taken as you wish. At Holistic Springs Herb Co., we currently offer two sizes of liquid boron, easy to swallow and tasteless!

So, now we have an idea of what boron is and how to consume it, but what exactly is it good for? Let’s get into what boron can do for you!


Boron For Bones

One of the biggest benefits of incorporating boron into your life is the impact it can have on your bones. As boron helps facilitate the absorption of calcium and magnesium in your body, it can contribute to the development of strong, healthy bones. Enhancing bone density can help prevent diseases like osteoporosis and aid in stronger bones in general.


Boron For Joint Pain

To build on to the bone talk, next up on the list of boron benefits comes your joints! Boron has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, helping reduce inflammation within the body for improved joint functioning. Athletes, bodybuilders, individuals with arthritis or who suffer from aches and pains stemming from inflammation in the joints may see relief from adding boron into their daily routine.


Boron For Hormones

While the majority of the conversation surrounding hormonal issues seems to relate back to women, the truth is both men and women can and do suffer from hormonal imbalances. Boron can act to balance estrogen and testosterone in all genders to bring hormones closer to their optimal levels, which in turn can improve mood, energy, menopause and PMS symptoms, libido and more.


Boron For The Brain

Studies show that increased boron in the body can influence neurotransmitters within the brain, an essential part of our cognitive function. Incorporating boron into your life can improve memory, clear up brain fog, increase focus and level out your mood.


Boron For Beauty

Beyond the benefits of boron for your internal systems, we’re happy to report that research shows boron can provide improvements on an aesthetic level, too. Consuming boron can improve collagen production and hair health, leading to healthy, younger looking skin and shiny, strong locks. Look great AND feel great with boron in your life!


Boron And Beyond

We’ve covered the main benefits of boron: bones, inflammation and joint pain, hormone balancing, cognitive function and beauty, but that doesn’t mean that’s the extent of it. All of these body systems work together and when one is out of whack, others can quickly follow suit. Balancing a problem area with the right holistic approaches can kick off a domino effect leading to improved health across the board.


Is It Time To Add Boron To Your Life?

As you embrace holistic living, keep boron in mind as an addition to your daily regimen. This powerful trace mineral can enhance your life by improving how you feel, move, think and even look!

As always, we recommend you follow up with your own research and consult with a healthcare provider with any questions or concerns.
