Boron / Copper

Boron is needed in trace amounts for healthy bones and muscle growth. It is also necessary for the metabolism of calcium, phosphorous and magnesium. It enhances brain function, promotes alertness and plays a role in how the body utilises energy from fats and sugars. Boron supplements significantly influence oestrogen activity which may help to relieve common menopausal complaints.  Caution: Do not take more than 3 to 6 milligrams unless prescribed.

Copper aids in the formation of bone, haemoglobin and red blood cells and works in balance with zinc and vitamin C to form elastin, an important skin protein. Copper is crucial for all the body’s healing processes, energy production, hair and skin colouring and taste sensitivity. It is also essential for the formation of collagen. Caution: Excessive intake of copper can lead to toxicity, so do not exceed recommended dosage Signs of copper deficiency: Osteoporosis, anaemia, general weakness, recurring infections.
