Pete they are the same thing. Borax is just naturally occurring, boxed up, boron molecules. ALL boron compounds start with what we know as borax. It is the raw chemical feedstock. Borax is so cheap that I just go right to the source instead of buying expensive supplements. I've been through 1 and a half boxes of borax since 2013 ha ha. Let's see at 5.65 a box....that's about 11 dollars. I've been taking borax for 8.5 years now and the only side effect I've experienced is way better health and much improved quality of life. I can't recommend it highly enough.and I thought Boron was a boring moron , like me! ....I just read what the internet has to say about Borax. it virtually comes with a DANGER signal.. So are Borax and Boron are 2 different things?
If you wanna get your blood boiling, watch The Pharmacist on Netflix. The man is a hero in my book.would threaten the profits of the pharma company so THEY MADE IT ILLEGAL.
