Boron Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Boron is distributed throughout the human body with the highest concentration in the bones and dental enamel. Boron seems to be essential for healthy bone and joint function, possibly via effects on the balance and absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. It seems to affect cell membranes and the way signals are transmitted across these membranes. Boron affects the metabolism of steroid hormones and may also play a role in converting vitamin D to its more active form thus increasing calcium uptake and deposition into bone. Boron also increases male sex hormone levels.
