Prohormone & Supplement Ingredients:

Boron

A Boron deficiency can result in a low level of the testosterone hormone in the body, which is essential to the proper functioning of the mind and immune system for both males and females. Using a Boron supplement is a safe way for most people to add the substance to their diet. Certain conditions may be helped by taking a Boron supplement and many athletes choose to take it as it has been shown to increase serum levels of testosterone and may improve performance.

Proven Benefits

Boron deficiency can cause a wide range of problems in the human body across both sexes. For this reason, there have been extensive studies done on the effectiveness of supplements.

There is scientifically documented evidence that Boron supplements will have the following effect:

- Promote steroid hormone levels of testosterone
- Promote bone growth and strength
- Help prevent atherosclerosis
- Improve mental clarity and focus
- Lower HDL
- Change thyroid hormone levels
- Ease loss of vitamin D, magnesium, and potassium during menopause
- Help prevent osteoporosis
- Help relieve arthritis
- Prevent postmenopausal calcium loss

Boron is most commonly suggested to women entering menopause to alleviate the complications caused by the loss of vitamins, minerals and changes in hormone levels. It has been shown to be most effective in helping mitigate the risk and complications of bone loss of postmenopausal women.

Cautions with Boron

The body’s natural concentration of Boron is focused on the thyroid and spleen. It has been shown to interact with the hormone regulation systems of the body and therefore is not indicated for anyone who has a hormone related disorder, such as breast, uterine or ovarian cancers. It is also recommended that pregnant or breastfeeding women consult their doctor before taking this supplement. If you have a thyroid disorder or a kidney disorder, you should not take Boron.
