Do I Need Boron? The Answer is YES! That is why it is part of
What is Boron?
Boron is a trace mineral and it is widely known to be important to human health. By reducing the SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) in men free testosterone levels are naturally boosted. Oddly enough, there is no set recommended daily allowance (RDA). Boron can increase Free Testosterone Levels by as much as 30% while decreasing Estrogen by as much as 39%. We have found that 10 mg supplemented daily appears to be the most effective dosing for your free testosterone, according to our research. Patients that took less than 6 mg did not see much of a benefit to their free testosterone from it. However, we saw no advantages at all to taking more than 10 mg as being beneficial.
As stated earlier there is no set daily recommendation of boron which makes it hard to realize a boron deficiency, however, boron is difficult to find in the average American males diet. Avocados provide one of the highest natural amount of boron but unfortunately you would have to eat in excess of a cup of avocados to get just 1.7 mg’s or about 17% that is needed to boost your free testosterone. Having said that you would have to eat about 10 avocados a day. No way for me. As a result, nearly all the patients we see are not even getting a fraction of the boron they need to maximize their free testosterone,
Boron Increases Free Testosterone
Oklahoma City and Tulsa men with high SHBG were given boron supplements of 10 mg daily for 7 days, and saw fantastic results of an increase of 28.3% in their free testosterone. Just as fantastic was the reduction in their estrogen levels by 39%.
Boron and Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)
Supplementing with Boron causes a super charge boost to your free testosterone which is most important to your ability to gain muscle, lose fat and increase strength; we do not see any significant increase in total testosterone. You may be wondering how the heck free testosterone could take such a big jump, and the total testosterone remains about the same. This is because of the way boron and SHBG interact in the blood. Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) is a protein made by your liver. It job is to bind your sex hormones (estrogen or estradial; dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and testosterone) and then through the bloodstream carry them throughout your body. In total SHBG is a good thing because helps regulate your body. However, as you increase your testosterone your SHBG levels will increase as well. Even if your testosterone levels are increasing, your bodies ability to use it for things like strength and muscle building (free testosterone) are limited because the SHBG is binding your testosterone rendering it unavailable. This is why boron is so effective. We see in our Oklahoma City and Tulsa patients, boron supplements reduce high SHBG levels naturally, and provides you with more free testosterone for your body to use.
