Fructo Borate for Bone and Heart Health
Fructo Borate is a very exciting product: it naturally duplicates the molecular structure of boron as it is found of food—in nature, Boron is always bound to carbohydrate.
In studies, one to two capsules of Fructo Borate have been shown to help prevent and slow down osteoporosis, reduce the inflammation in osteoarthritis, and selectively increase steroid hormones in the blood—testosterone, DHEA and Vitamin D3 level.
Fructo Borate also supports healthy heart by reducing C-reactive protein (CRP) levels.
CRP has been known to be an important marker for the potential of Cardiovascular Disease or CVD (Ridker et al., 2000; Li et al., 2019).
In 2000, the researchers of Ridker et al. conducted a prospective control study among 28,263 apparently healthy postmenopausal women over a mean follow-up period of three years to assess the risk of cardiovascular events associated with base-line levels of markers of inflammation. Of the 12 makers measure CRP was the strongest univariate predictor of the risk of cardiovascular events.
What is the evidence that Fructo Borate support reduction of C-reactive protein levels?
In 2013, the objective of Militaru et al.’s study was to evaluate the effects of short-term (60-d) oral supplementation with fructo borate, resveratrol , and their combination with stable angina patients. There was a significant decrease of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in all groups. This decrease was greater (39.7% at 60 d) in the Fructo Borate alone group, followed by the resveratrol plus fructo borate group (30.3% at 60 d).
As you can see from ongoing research studies in the references, the Fructo Borate by itself has demonstrable health benefits. Boron is critical for the proper functioning of many important metabolic pathways. The problem is the top soil in many areas of the world is depleted in boron which means that the crops produced from such soil will be deplete in boron. Supplementing with a boron supplement such as the Fructo Borate makes sense.
