We’ve had evidence since the 1960s that declining levels of boron in our diet is a prime cause of osteoarthritis.
The first tipoff came when scientists noticed that in areas of the world where the soil and food supply contain less boron, the incidence of osteoarthritis is high (in up to 70% of the population). But in areas where the mineral is plentiful, the rate of arthritis plunges to 10% and even to zero!
This made them wonder if people with arthritis had lower blood levels of boron compared to people without the condition. And when they looked, that’s exactly what they discovered!
In fact, one study showed that the levels of boron in arthritic hips were 50% less than in healthy hips.
Next Came Animal Studies
The next step was to induce osteoarthritis in laboratory animals and then give them boron supplementation. To everyone’s surprise, the animals’ arthritis was stopped in its tracks!
Human trials were then conducted. After just two months, 50% of the arthritis sufferers who received the boron supplement reported significant improvement in their symptoms.
After just 7 days of receiving the mineral, every single marker of painful inflammation was significantly reduced in people with arthritis while it also triggered the rebuilding of cartilage and bone.
This amount of pain relief is amazing for a natural substance in such a short time!
Then They Combined the Mineral with Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Finally, when the researchers gave a boron supplement to arthritis patients already taking glucosamine and chondroitin, they got an even bigger surprise…
Those patients displayed an additional 25% boost in pain-reducing, cartilage-enhancing performance. So, if you’ve taken a glucosamine chondroitin supplement and had no results, a deficiency of boron could be why.
I recommend DMSO, Glucosamine, MSM, Ginger, Tea Trea Oil, boron and Arnica for my clients with chronic pain with remarkable results along withacupuncture.
I recommend using a natural supplement containing glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin, ginger and green tea which helps your body achieve an alkaline pH of 7.3 to reduce inflammation instead of using Cox II inhibitor medications with potential side effects like: Celebrex (celecoxib)/Vioxx (rofecoxib)/Bextra (valdecoxib).
