Maybe.: Only 50% of americans get the necessary daily requirement of this important mineral. The three most important in effect and amount needed as far as bone health: 1. Calcium. 2. Magnesium. 3. Zinc. Boron is way down the list. But magnesium is added to calcium in doses of 125-250 mg, to calcium, because it is important for bone health!
