Boron for osteoporosis

MagazineFebruary 2006 (Vol. 16 Issue 11)Boron for osteoporosis

Many elderly women prone to osteoporosis who have been taking Osteo-Trace have had bad falls without breaking any bones

Many elderly women prone to osteoporosis who have been taking Osteo-Trace have had bad falls without breaking any bones. This shows how their bones are denser and stronger than is normal with women of their age group. Only yesterday, my 90-year-old wife fell on to pavement, but no bones were broken. She has been using Osteo-Trace for years. - Rex E. Newnham, via e-mail

WDDTY replies: You may be on to something there: boron given to rats and chicks has increased bone strength. However, clinical studies are needed to clarify boron's effects in humans (Crit Rev Food Sci Nutr, 2003; 43: 219-31).
