Pure Borax Sodium tetraborate 99.9% from California
Pure Borax Sodium tetraborate 99.9% from California
Since borax may not be sold in the EU either as a nutritional supplement or as a cosmetic, we offer it here only and expressly for technical purposes.
Some of our clients report that they still do the following:
They dissolve 33g magnesium chloride and 7g borax in 1 l water. Of these, they drink a teaspoon a day on a glass of water. They shake the bottle before each serving and clean it after each filling, so that the Borax does not settle on the bottom of the bottle.
Borates are safe
Extensive product safety tests have shown that borates are safe. In fact, borax decahydrate - also known as borax - has been used as hand soap for years and is neither irritating to the skin nor sensitizing in the context of allergic reactions.
Borates have an excellent reputation as a safe mineral. In trace amounts they are essential micronutrients for plants and it is believed that it is important for humans too. In extreme doses, they can also make you sick. Borates are about as toxic as table salt. The US Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) recognized the safety of boron by setting a tolerable upper intake level (UL) for boron of 20 milligrams per day.
General about Borates
The earth consists of traces of more than 200 minerals that contain boron. Every member of the plant world relies on boron to grow. Of course, boron is also part of a healthy diet for humans. Boron or industrial minerals called borates can be found in thousands of products and processes that contribute to a better standard of living.
But even a good thing - such as this naturally occurring, nutritionally important element - can be harmful if intentionally abused.
The versatility of borates is based on their pronounced binding and structural properties. In living systems, these properties make borates vital to metabolism - the fundamental way in which organisms convert food into energy.
Borates also exist in industrial systems for two reasons:
First, they are safe. Borates, which have been used for centuries, pose no risk to humans, animals or the environment when handled and used normally. Also, people who handle borates on a daily basis have no harmful effects.
Second, they are versatile. In some applications there is simply no substitute for borates. In other cases, their natural functions provide a wide range of benefits in terms of performance, cost, environment, health and safety.
Fundamental to modern life: borates
Borates are an integral part of the natural world. Plants need borates to grow, and it seems that humans need them too. Not only as a nutritionally important part of your diet, but also as an integral part of a dazzling array of products we use every day. Borates are important ingredients in a variety of household and commercial products, especially:
Fiberglass insulation, textile fiberglass fabric and heat-resistant TFT / LCD glass (43% of global demand)
Detergents, soaps and personal care products (3% of global demand)
Ceramic and enamel frits and glazes, ceramic tile bodies (19% of world demand)
Micronutrients in agriculture (10% of global demand)
Other applications, including wood treatments, polymer additives and pest control products
Borates are part of the natural world, present in water, rocks, soil, plants, and people. The earth consists of trace amounts of more than 200 minerals that contain boron. While the exact role of borates in human health has yet to be determined, their role as essential ingredients in a vast array of products and processes has been established for centuries.
Borax decahydrate is safe (when properly handled) in a variety of applications. Borax has a low acute toxicity in mammals and is negligibly absorbed through intact skin. Just follow normal practices of industrial hygiene, such as avoiding inhalation of dust.
Frequently asked questions about boron
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about boron and its health and safety effects and benefits.
Q: What do toxicology studies show?
A: Scientists conduct studies to determine both the level at which boron is harmful and the level at which boron is beneficial to health. Laboratory animals that ingested high doses of borates over long periods have shown adverse developmental and reproductive effects. In studies where boron is completely removed from the diet and environment, similar adverse effects occur. In other words, too little boron is as bad as too much.
Q: What do studies of populations or workers exposed to high levels of borates show?
A: No evidence of adverse reproductive effects attributable to boron have been observed in epidemiological studies of borate workers and populations with high exposures to boron.
Q: What would happen if you accidentally ingested a very high dose of borates?
A: An extremely high intake of borates would make most people vomit. But it is nearly impossible to be exposed to such quantities through eating foods or using products that contain borates. We?ve been mining and refining borates for more than 135 years. Evaluation of our workers?who are exposed to higher levels of borates than most people?have shown no adverse developmental or reproductive effects. In most instances where people have experienced artificially high borate intake, vomiting or excretion in urine has been rapid, and blood and tissue concentrations were quickly back to normal.
Q: How does our body absorb boron?
A: When people eat vegetable food, they absorb small amounts of boron. Studies show that people in many different cultures consume about one to three milligrams of boron per day by combining food and drink. There is an almost universal consensus in the scientific community - including the World Health Organization - that boron is nutritionally important to maintaining optimal human health.
Q: How does our body excrete boron again?
A: It is important to know that boron does not accumulate in the body. Regardless of how boron is ingested or inhaled, our body takes what it needs and excretes the rest.
Q: What does Bor do to stay healthy?
A: While research is still in the process of determining the exact role that boron plays in maintaining and promoting good health, it is now known to be important for energy metabolism, bone health and strength, and brain function.
Q: What do government organizations say about Boron?
A: Most major risk assessment organizations around the world have investigated boron - including the World Health Organization, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Academy of Sciences - and most are convinced that the rules in force are more than human or animal and protect the environment. Some regulators want to determine how much boron a person needs each day to stay healthy. Despite evidence that borates are harmless to humans and the environment, in September 2009 the European Commission made a decision to classify borate as a substance toxic to reproduction. They based their decision on animal studies that do not reflect human exposure under normal conditions and ignored the fact that people who eat healthily and in a variety of ways also consume many borates. Although we disagree with the classification and assume that our products are safe, we adhere to this classification.
Q: Does it make sense to regulate the use of borates even more?
A: No, of course not if you look at the facts about how people are exposed to borates and how much. Borate products have been used safely for more than 100 years and we believe that stricter regulations would alert people unneccessarily.
