By using Boron Neutron Capture method which is used effectively in the treatment of brain cancer treatment, helps to selectively destroy unwell cells and keep damage to healthy cells to a minimum.
Boron which is an essential element in the lives of the living beings with scientific researches which are still in progress; has become increasingly important in the health sector with the contributions it has made to human health.

Boron can be taken from fruits such as apples, pears, plums, dates and vegetables such as beans, chickpeas, lentils etc., is also present in the contents of pasteurized milk.
