Boron supplementation may protect women's bones
A study of twelve post-menopausal women aged between 48 and 72
found that supplementing a low-boron, low-magnesium diet with
three milligrams of boron a day for 48 days both (i) increased
17 beta-estradiol* and testosterone levels and (ii) reduced calcium
and magnesium levels in the urine.
This suggested that the boron supplement had reduced both calcium
loss and bone demineralisation, thus reducing bone erosion and
protecting against osteoporosis

However, another similar study found no evidence that boron
supplementation had reduced urine calcium loss.
