Miracle Mineral Slashes Prostate Cancer Risk

If there’s one particular cancer that men worry about developing, it’s prostate cancer.

And for good reason.

One in nine men are diagnosed with prostate cancer, and it’s the second leading cause of cancer death in men.

The good news is that prostate cancer is often non-aggressive, and most men can live full lives with.

But wouldn’t you rather avoid getting prostate cancer in the first place?

Here’s a great way to do EXACTLY that.

When you think of good-for-you minerals, ones like calcium, magnesium, and iron might come to mind.

But boron?

If most people are being honest, they probably don’t know that getting enough boron is essential for good health.

And I guarantee you they don’t know about its role in prostate cancer.

In reality, maintaining adequate boron levels is associated with a 64% reduced risk of prostate cancer.

In fact, studies show that men with the highest boron intake can lower their prostate cancer risk by 54%.

Animal studies find that supplementing with boron led to a remarkable 89% reduction in PSA levels—the protein that is both a marker of prostate cancer and instrumental in spreading the disease.

What makes boron especially unique is its ability to kill cancer cells while leaving healthy cells untouched.

And there are plenty of other good reasons to make sure you’re getting your share of boron…

It helps prevent arthritis and osteoporosis, strengthen your skeletal and immune system, it increases estrogen in women and testosterone in men, and it helps enhance your ability to absorb calcium, vitamin D, and magnesium.

It’s basically the unsung hero of minerals.

And you can make sure you’re getting plenty of it by eating foods like hazelnuts, peanuts, avocado, apples, and chickpeas.
