Boron is a trace mineral that can help prevent many diseases and keep the body healthy. While you only require a small amount of this mineral, deficiencies can cause serious health issues, making it vital that you consume enough boron on a daily basis. Found in fruits such as apples, grapes, and oranges, boron keeps the metabolism healthy and can keep chronic health conditions such as hormonal imbalance and arthritis at bay. The health benefits of boron can also be gleaned from soybeans, avocados, red kidney beans, peanut butter, hazelnuts, currants, tomato, and lentils.


1. Strengthens Brain Function

In a study conducted on women and men of advanced age, it was found that individuals who consume larger doses of boron have better brain function than those who consumed less. This is because boron aids mineral metabolism and strengthens membrane function. Regular consumption of boron can strengthen long- and short-term memory, eye-hand coordination, and manual dexterity.
