    Nothing boring about Boron

    The trace mineral boron is a micronutrient with diverse and vitally important roles in metabolism that render it necessary for plant, animal, and human health, and as recent research suggests, possibly for the evolution of life on Earth. As the current article shows, boron has been proven to be an important trace mineral because it
    (1) is essential for the growth and maintenance of bone;
    (2) greatly improves wound healing;
    (3) beneficially impacts the body’s use of estrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D;
    (4) boosts magnesium absorption;
    (5) reduces levels of inflammatory biomarkers, such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α);
    (6) raises levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase;
    (7) protects against pesticide-induced oxidative stress and heavy-metal toxicity;
    (8) improves the brains electrical activity, cognitive performance, and short-term memory for elders;
    (9) influences the formation and activity of key biomolecules, such as
    S-adenosyl methionine (SAM-e) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+);
    (10) has demonstrated preventive and therapeutic effects in a number of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, and lung cancers, and multiple and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma; and
    (11) may help ameliorate the adverse effects of traditional chemotherapeutic agents.

    Also makes a good natural hand soap (boraxo unscented) and fertilizer.

    I've been mixing a small pinch of borax into some water in the morning, swirl it around a bit, let it sit, then swirl around some more till it's mostly disolved, then I throw some magnesium drink mix powder in there, a couple teaspoons of raw apple cider vinegar and drink it.

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."
