-One study conducted in 2011 has suggested that Boron supplementation can increase [[dht|]] and free testosterone levels ((Comparative effects of daily and weekly boron supplementation on plasma steroid hormones and proinflammatory cytokines.|[[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21129941]])) When consumed in the appropriate quantities. It was shown over the study to also decrease the mean levels of estradiol, an estrogen. The dose given in the study was 10mg per day. +===== Potential For Beard Growth =====

 It achieved this raise in androgens, by inhibiting Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG). SHBG binds to free testosterone aiding in its aromatization into estradiol. Inhibiting SHBG allows Free Testosterone to be metabolised more readily into DHT (and other androgens) without being converted into estrogen, which bodes well for our beards. It achieved this raise in androgens, by inhibiting Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG).

 Generally speaking newer studies are often given precedence, given the more advanced techniques and methods as time progresses. It is noteworthy however, that the earlier study had a larger data set.       Generally speaking newer studies are often given precedence, given the more advanced techniques and methods as time progresses.
