Boron appears to affect calcium and magnesium metabolism and membrane function. It is essential for efficient absorption of calcium in the body. It was found by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to significantly reduce the loss of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in post-menopausal women. It may also be helpful for ischemic heart disease and other forms of cardiovascular disease. Boron deficiency signs may be related to the level of vitamin D and possibly other nutrients in the diet. Deficiency Symptoms: Osteoporosis, Arthritis*
Calcium is an essential chemical element largely concerned with the structure and rigidity of bones and teeth. A small portion is involved in blood clotting, transmission of impulses from nerves to muscles, and regulation of the parathyroid gland. One percent of the body’s calcium circulating in body fluids maintains correct acid-alkaline balance and regulates the heartbeat among other vital functions. Lack of calcium in the diet leads to a form of “leaching out” of bone mineral content (osteoporosis) and when vitamin D is also deficient, the condition known as rickets occurs.*
Magnesium is important to calcium and potassium homeostasis. Numerous biochemical and physiological processes require, or are modulated by magnesium, including energy production, protein synthesis, muscle contractions and vascular tone. Extracellular magnesium concentrations are critical to the maintenance of electrical potentials of nerve and muscle membranes and for transmission of impulses across neuromuscular junctions. Magnesium deficiency is common since this mineral is refined out of many foods during processing. Deficiencies have been associated with coronary heart disease, formation of clots in the heart and brain, calcium deposits in the kidneys, blood vessels and heart, digestive disorders, depression and many other symptoms.*
Selenium plays an essential role in several enzymes including xanthine oxidase which aids in mobilizing iron from liver reserves; aldehyde oxidase which is necessary for oxidation of fats and sulfite oxidase. It modulates metabolism of calcium, magnesium, copper and nitrogen and may also be an antioxidant. Deficiencies can result from excess sulfites (common preservative of foods and drugs) or from refining of foods. Consequences of molybdenum deficiency include retarded weight gain, poor appetite, impaired reproduction, fast heartbeat, increased rate of breathing, visual problems and shortened life expectancy.*
Lithium reduces aggressiveness, violence and self-destruction.*
