Benefits of Boron

Boron is classified as a mineral that’s necessary for the body’s health as well as growth. It increases the ability of the body to absorb calcium and magnesium.2 Which is why if you’re deficient in boron your body will abnormally metabolize magnesium and calcium. Other signs that you may be deficient in boron include hypothyroidism, hormone imbalance, arthritis, and osteoporosis.2 A few benefits of incorporating boron in your daily life include: preventing arthritis, aiding in bone health, increasing estrogen production, preventing post-menopausal osteoporosis, maintaining cell membrane function, treating the difficulties due to congestive heart failure, lowering plasma lipid levels, decreasing fungal infections, and increasing brain as well as cognitive performance.2

Here at Acupuncture Atlanta we carry Boron (as boron glycinate) by Pure Encapsulations, Boron (glycinate) is a fantastic product because it supports normal calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium metabolism all while reducing the loss of these minerals through the urine. Also, it reinforces the connective tissue in the bone matrix. Another key aspect of taking Boron is that it’s vital in producing estrogen and vitamin D. Although there are benefits of taking boron, ensuring you take no more than the proper dosage is important because high levels can cause nausea, stomach discomfort, or vomiting.1

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

The clinic resumed treatments on May 7th with limited hours and new guidelines, and we are slowly working towards full-time hours. Please check the Book Appointment page for available days and time slots, or call us. 

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
