Thorne Boron Picolinate contains an extremely absorbable form of boron (an important bone-protective trace mineral).
Recent data from animal and human studies suggest boron is important for mineral metabolism, brain function and performance, hormone regulation, and prevention of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Boron is necessary for steroid hormone metabolism in humans, affecting the levels of estrogens and testosterone, possibly by facilitating hydroxylation reactions or by protecting steroid hormones from degradation.
Boron appears to have anti-inflammatory activity, including inhibition of leukotriene synthesis, reduction of reactive oxygen species, and suppression of an over-active antibody expression. Boron deficiency impacts mineral metabolism, cognitive function, steroid hormone and vitamin levels, and bone integrity. Clinical evidence suggests a role for boron in treatment protocols for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Tissue homeostasis is maintained by the rapid elimination of excess boron, primarily in the urine.
