Study: Calcium Fructoborate Effects on Vitamin D

FruiteX-B Calcium Fructoborate, a natural, stable mineral carbohydrate found in plants, has been found to counteract the harmful effects of dietary Vitamin D deficiency.

A study conducted at the Department of Orthopedic Medicine at the University of Novi Sad, Yugoslavia examined the correlation between intake of FruiteX-B and serum Vitamin D3 levels.

Study Summary:

  • Previous research has shown improvements in Vitamin D3 metabolism after boron supplementation.
  • Study participants took one capsule containing 226mg of FruiteX-B per day for 60 days.
  • All participants showed Vitamin D3 deficiency at the beginning of the study.
  • Out of all study participants, 85% saw an increase in Vitamin D3.
  • The study reported a 19.6% increase in Vitamin D3 levels for the participant group.

Health Implications:

Results from the Framingham Heart Study showed a correlation between Vitamin D deficiency and an increased risk for having a cardiovascular event. Vitamin D is also associated with bone and joint health.
