- Boron is a dietary mineral which is claimed to increase testosterone when supplemented at doses higher than from food.
Studies have shown that even a small amount of boron is enough to significantly increase testosterone levels. One study found that men who took 10mg of boron per week showed a 28% increase in free testosterone and a decrease in estrogen levels. In another study, male bodybuilders taking a daily boron supplement for seven weeks showed a significant increase in testosterone levels compared to those taking a placebo.
In a few cases, a doctor might prescribe a boron supplement as a medication. Always ask your doctor before taking a boron supplement.
