Back in 1986 The Rheumatoid Disease Foundation received information on Boron and Arthritis from Rex E. Newnham, Ph.D., D.O., N.D. of Leeds, England.
Boron is found in soil, water, food, and in small amounts in the body. It is actually a trace mineral that is vital for many functions in the body.
“In countries where there are minimum amounts of available boron in the soil there is much more arthritis. In most developed countries there are about 20% of people with some musculo-skeletal disease, which is generally arthritis. In places where there is more than usual boron in the soil there is much less arthritis” Dr. Newman stated.
What Dr. Newnham’s explains is making headway via physicians and vitamin research organizations. His Osteo-trace, B-Alive, or Bone Salts tablets have also helped the elderly, in Still’s Disease, Juvenile Arthritis, and Lupus, especially in its severe form of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
“Fruits and vegetables are rich in boron, especially apples, pears, nuts, leafy vegetables and legumes. The average boron intake can vary greatly in individuals depending on their daily diet. Some have only 0.2 mg. per day, while vegetarians may consume up to 20 mg. of boron per day. Based on animal experiments, it seems reasonable that the human requirement for boron will be found to be near 1 to 2 mg. per day” states Dr. Newman.
And it has grown on popularity over the years. In the last 15 years over 500,000 people have used a boron food supplement tablet to get rid of their arthritis. They take 3 tablets a day while they have arthritis and in about 1 to 3 months they can get rid of all the pain, swelling and stiffness.
The American Human Nutrition Research Center has shown that a similar boron supplement will reduce the daily loss of calcium by nearly 50% and this would mean that victims of osteoporosis would live longer and be free of pain and discomfort.
Honey is also a good source of boron other than fruits and vegetables.. But these foods should be organically grown. A good apple can have 20 mg boron, but an ordinary apple grown with fertilizer can have as little as 1 mg boron, or maybe less. The same applies to certain other fruits.
So if anyone you know suffers from this terrible disease, suggest the boron supplements as the first aid and the results will be amazing.
