ÖZET
Sağlıklı canlıların metabolizmalarında önemli rolü olan bor, bir mikrobesindir. Borun insan sağlığına olan etkilerini özetlersek; (1) Kemiklerin yapısının korunması, büyümesi ve bakımı için önemlidir; (2) Kalsiyum, magnezyum, fosfor ve D vitamini gibi bazı vücut minerallerinin düzenlenmesinde rol alır; (3) Vücudun östrojen ve testosteron kullanımını etkiler; (4) Anti-inflamatuar etki gösterir ve romatoid artrit ile ilişkilidir; (5) Süperoksid dismutaz, katalaz ve glutatyon peroksidaz gibi antioksidan enzimlerin düzeylerini artırır; (6) Elektriksel beyin aktivitesini, bilişsel performansı ve yaşlılarda kısa-dönem hafızayı geliştirir; (7) Yara iyileştirici ve antimikrobiyal etkileri vardır; (8) Prostat, akciğer, meme kanserleri, beyin tümörleri üzerinde koruyucu ve tedavi edici etkileri olduğu bildirilmiştir. Dünya Sağlık Örgütünce sağlıklı erişkin bir bireyin beslenme ile alabileceği bor miktarı 1-13 mg olarak belirlenmiştir. Çeşitli kuruyemişler, baklagiller, meyve ve sebzeler bor açısından zengindir. Osteoporoz, osteoartrit, meme, prostat, akciğer kanserli veya riski olan, yeterli meyve ve sebze tüketmeyen kişilere bor takviyeli beslenme uygulandığında, bu hastalıklarla ilgili olumlu sonuçlar alındığı bildirilmiştir. Aşırı dozda bor alınması durumunda, erişkinlerde baş ağrısı, kusma, ishal, psikolojik sorunlar; çocuklarda havale ve beyin zarı tahribi yapabileceği rapor edilmiştir. Ancak öldürücü dozu aşmak çok zordur. Bu derleme; borun insan sağlığı üzerindeki belirgin etkilerini ve borun yeni tedavilerde kullanımını kapsayan çalışmaları bir araya getirmeye odaklanmıştır.

ABSTRACT
Boron, which plays an important role in the metabolism of healthy living organisms, is a micronutrient. To summarize the effect of boron on human health; (1) Is essential for the protection, growth and maintenance of bone; (2) Plays a role in the regulation of some body minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and vitamin D; (3) Impacts the body's use of estrogen, testosterone (4) Has anti-imflammatory effect and related with romatoid arthrit; (5) Raises levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase; (6) Improves the brains electrical activity, cognitive performance, and short-term memory for elders; (7) Has wound healing and antimicrobial effects; (8) Has demonstrated preventative and therapeutic effects in prostate, lung, breast cancers and brain tumors. The amount of boron that a healthy adult individual can take with nutrition has been determined as 1-13 mg according to World Health Organization. Some nuts, legumes, fruits and vegetables are rich in boron. It is reported that boron supplementation is showing beneficial support to any individual who is consuming a diet lacking in fruits and vegetables and who is at risk or has osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, breast, prostate, lung cancer. In the case of overdose exposure; in adults headache, vomiting, diarrhea, physcological disorder, in children convulsion, brain damage are reported. But it is very difficult to exceed the lethal dose. This review focuses on bringing boron's most salient effects on human health and the use of boron in new treatments.
