What foods contain boron?

Grant Cooper, MD
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Fruits, vegetables, and nuts are excellent sources of boron. Avocados are particularly rich in this element and contain approximately 2 mg per serving. Other excellent sources include almonds, dates, apples, green leafy vegetables, and raisins. A typical American diet provides between 1.5 and 3 mg of boron per day, but your daily dose of boron will increase effortlessly when you increase your daily consumption of fruits and vegetables.
