Having normal boron levels in my body took away about 90% of my arthritic stiffness
For joint stiffness, I take 1/4 teaspoon of borax (the source of all boron compounds) everyday in a few ounces of fruit juice.
Borax is a naturally occurring salt scraped from dried up lake beds in Turkey and California, cleaned and sold as is. Nature made, food grade.
Borax is the sodium salt of boric acid. Borax is the brand name. It's really just naturally occurring boron. A boron molecule is comprised of boron, water and glucose, That's it. That info comes from the Material Safety Data Sheet, (MSDS) one of the only known sources of truth lol.
It's half as toxic as regular table salt, boron, and it doesn't affect DNA like table salt can. (if taken in large quantities) Borax is safe up to two teaspoons a day. 1/4 teaspoon is all you need.
The problem is most of the population is deficient in boron due to commercial farming practices. In Isreal, where the boron levels in the soil are high, arthritis is almost non existent. In Jamaica, boron levels are low, and even the dogs are arthritic. So there's a real connection.
It's a mineral deficiency basically. Boron is a mineral. When we are low on a mineral, a whole host of bad things happen. With a boron deficiency, arthritis is just one. My memory improved. My eyesight improved. My arthritis was taken away and it only took 2 weeks of doing this. I'm being 100% honest. 2 weeks and I felt a MAJOR difference.
Boron also oversees production of synovial fluid, which lubricates the joints. Low boron, low quality lube. Between the calcium deposits and the bad lube, it's easy to see why arthritis happens.
I've been taking it every day since January 2013. Boron regulates the calcium mechanism in your body. When low on boron, your body deposits calcium in the joints, When normal levels of boron are there, it takes the calcium from your joints where it doesn't belong, and deposits it back into your bones and teeth. I have proven this to myself. Before I started taking it, I had a very large knuckle. It's normal sized now. It took 7 years, but it's normal now. Keith Richards really needs this.
There's a lot more benefits to tell, like normalizing testosterone levels, but this should be enough. It's unconventional. It works for me.
Ingesting 1/4 teaspoon of borax everyday is the best thing I've done for my adult health, period
Vitamin K I can't speak intelligently about. It couldn't hurt to know if I'm getting enough. They say vitamin K deficiency is rare. But if it's getting depleted by something very few people ingest, good to know. I do know that for boron to be effective, the body needs to have a normal amount of magnesium, another mineral.
I will research the vitamin K depletion thing. I never read that, which means nothing. But now I'm interested.
Spirulina has vitamin K, which I already take, but it only provides 30% of the RDA per serving
Loss of hair, yikes!
This method is the ticket:My concern is always method of extraction
That's cool stuff. I bet its expensive to set up. This thing piqued my interest. It's literally a weed eater. 3lb in 3-7 seconds? Impressive indeed.This method is the ticket:
The butane process leaves a residue because it doesn’t evaporate 100% from the butter. Or so they say.
