Boron is an element and mineral that has tons of positive effects on your body’s biochemistry. This paper goes into details about how supplementing with boron can help increase free testosterone, the active form of testosterone. After only 1 week of boron supplementation of 6 mg/d, a further study of healthy males (n = 8) found a significant increase in free testosterone, which rose from an average of 11.83 pg/mL to 15.18 pg/mL. Researchers also noted a significant decreases in estradiol(estrogen), which dropped from 42.33 pg/mL to 25.81 pg/mL. All of the inflammatory biomarkers that were measured also decreased: (1) interleukin (IL) 6, from 1.55 pg/mL to 0.87 pg/mL; (2) high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) by approximately 50%, a remarkable decrease, from 1460 ng/mL to 795 ng/mL; and (3) tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) by approximately 30%, from 12.32 to 9.97 pg/mL. Levels of dihydrotestosterone, cortisol, and vitamin D increased slightly. Boron is an extremely underrated supplement for men and women, not only looking to increase free testosterone, but dramatically decrease makers of inflammation. Note: 6mg a day was calculated for elemental boron I believe. This means 3mg of Boron citrate is not 3mg of elemental boron. The best forms to take are the amino acid chelates like boron glycinate, boron aspartate, ect.
