mineral boron has been tentatively identified as an essential nutrient
for humans. Dr. Penland produced the first evidence that low boron intakes
in both animals and humans produce changes in brain electrical activity
similar to those produced by general malnutrition and exposure to toxic
elements, and that low boron intakes are associated with poorer
shortterm memory and motor performance in humans.
• Dietary boron may be important for sensory-motor function and cognitive performance. Data collected showed that the lower boron intake resulted in impaired performance on tapping, pursuit, search, counting and encoding tasks. Penland JG. Quantitative analysis of EEG effects following experimental marginal magnesium and boron deprivation. Magnesium Research 8:341-58, 1995.
element boron plays a key role in the chemical make-up of bones and
joints through its effects on calcium metabolism. In areas
of the world where dietary boron intake is usually 1 mg or less per
day, the estimated incidence of osteoarthritis ranges from 20 to 70
percent, while in areas of the world where boron intake is 3 to 10 mg
per day, the incidence of osteoarthritis is only zero to 10 percent.
