    Boron, Osteoporosis and Testosterone

    Ladies,

    I was searching for some information on diet and Osteoporosis for Mrs. G and found the attached study regarding boron.
    I thought some of you might be interested.
    The difference between a low boron and high boron diet is a greater retention of calcium and an increase circulation of of testosterone and 17B-estradiol.
    The study population was of post menopausal women (48-84 IIRC)
    But the study population was small.

    The difference between a low boron diet and a high boron diet seems to be about x2 for the hormone profile and about 50% additional calcium retention.

    thanks.
    The paper is from 1987 - and most of the research out since this time has shown that although a dietary intake sufficient in boron (eg - from a healthy intake of fruit and veggie) is good for bone health, and aids in calcium uptake, unfortunately, adding extra has little to no effect on bone mineral density.

    Emma,

    Seems like many dietary supplements fall into that category.
    Once you have as much as your body can use, the rest is waste or at very high levels, potentially toxic.
    As always, the question is whether you have enough or not.

    Cheers.
