Dosage and the therapeutic course
A pot of OsteoTrace contains 90 tablets – one month’s supply. The naturopath recommended a therapeutic dose of three tablets a day (just after a meal) while restoring boron levels a maintenance dose of one tablet a day just after a meal thereafter. He cautioned that, in cases of long-term boron deficiency, it can take up to three months to restore adequate levels. So his recommended doses were …
- therapeutic dose for adult humans – three tablets a day, taken just after a meal
- maintenance dose for adult humans- one tablet a day, taken just after a meal
- therapeutic dose for adult non-human mammals – one tablet per 25 kilograms bodyweight a day, taken just after a meal
- maintenance dose for adult non-human mammals – a third of a tablet per 25 kilograms bodyweight a day, taken just after a meal
Eating good levels of fresh organic vegetables and fruit should provide 2-5 milligrams (mg) of boron a day. The food most of us now eat, and the synthetic chemical fertilisers most of our farmers use, means that the average intake in more industrially developed countries is 1-2mg a day. Furthermore, the chemical fertilisers make it more difficult for plants to take up the boron in the soil.
Adequate boron levels in the body are important to many body functions, but OsteoTrace has been developed particularly to promote healthy bones and joints. None of the sixteen nutrients in OsteoTrace should react with any medication or drug. They should all be present in the vegetables and fruit we eat.
RIP the naturopath
The naturopath was in his nineties when he died (in 2008). He took OsteoTrace daily, as a preventive measure, and was completely free of bone and joint problems and hale and hearty until a couple of weeks before his death.
