Boron, One of the Most Deficient Trace Minerals
At the end of the video this guy says, "If you're gonna take boron, I'd try to find a product with all the trace minerals with it, like in a blend of all the trace minerals cuz anytime you take one mineral of anything without the other minerals, it can create a problem if you take it longterm."

Actually you can take 20 mule team borax. The only problem is you only need a few tiny grains because you need so little of it. If you buy a supplement, odds are it's nearly all filler with a little boron added to it.

BORON CAN ALSO BE ABSORBED THROUGH THE SKIN. I am lazy and don't bother to sort out my clothes when I wash them so I use borax instead of bleach in every load. Not only does it make my clothes super clean without bleach, but gives me a good chance to absorb my daily boron. Boron is the active ingredient in color safe bleach. No need to spend extra money on it. Just buy borax instead.

It also makes a nice household cleaner and germ killer.

Oh and I almost forgot. I use borax and water in a spray bottle as an underarm deodorant. I'll bet we also absorb quite a bit of boron by breathing in dust from the lake and fumes from the plant, though I suspect the later contains more harmful chemicals than good ones!

I also take CONCENTRACE trace mineral drops and extra magnesium in the form of magnesium glycinate and potassium ascorbate occasionally when I work out; and always add extra magnesium, potassium chloride (because it tastes salty) and a little manganese to my celtic sea salt, to ensure I get a wide variety of minerals instead of only sodium chloride. If I didn't use so much borax in cleaning and so forth I suppose it would be a good idea to add a little to my salt mixture. But I wouldn't want to go overboard with my supplementing. Ha ha. When I use salt I use all the salt I want because I know the wide variety of minerals in my custom salt blend will not give me high blood pressure.

Re: Dietary Supplements MONOLAURIN

One of the few supplements I take is monolaurin. I used to take it only when I had a cold or flu symptoms. It works like magic for that. Monolaurin is a coconut extract that is especially present in coconut oil. It mainly functions like an anti-viral or antibiotic. Lately I've been suspecting that my aching joints might be caused by viruses instead of old age. I've read theories that rheumatism might be a virus that caused the joints to wear out and not just the joints themselves getting old. I've been afraid to take too much monolaurin too often and that the pathogens might become immune to it. I've searched and searched and can not find a single thing to support the theory that monolaurin was like antibiotics in this respect but never the less it's a possibility.

I've read a few reviews from people saying that monolaurin helped their joint pain and have been taking sustained higher amounts of monolaurin and it is definitely working for joint pain. If I feel a cold or a cold sore coming on I only have to take it a day or 2 to get rid of it. It makes sense that I would have to take it a lot longer for it to work on joint pain than on a cold or cold sore because a cold sore is only skin deep but aching joints go clear to the bone. It's been close to two weeks and I feel a huge difference in my joints. Could it be that some joint pains can be caused by a virus? It certainly seems that way. I just hope that the viruses the monolaurin kills don't mutate and become immune to it the way they can from taking antibiotics.
