Strontium Citrate

Strontium Citrate

Recent studies have discovered a natural alternative bone support in strontium, a bone-friendly trace element that is concentrated in human teeth and bone. Strontium is similar in composition to two other minerals necessary for healthy bones, calcium and magnesium. Studies show that strontium can increase the absorption of calcium into bones and teeth, making them thicker and stronger.

For maximum effectiveness, it is important to take Calcium, Magnesium*, and Vitamin D when taking Strontium.

BE SURE TO TAKE STRONTRIUM AT A SEPARATE TIME FROM THESE SUPPLEMENTS.

Trial evidence shows strontium ranelate (Protelose-Servier) used by prescription in Europe and the Uk since 2004 is useful for those at risk for osteoporosis. Strontium is called a Dual Action Bone Agent which means it helps to increase bone formation by stimulating the osteoblasts (cells which help to build bone) and by inhibiting the osteoclasts (cells which help to break down bone).

A 2 year placebo controlled trial was undertaken including 353 women with osteoporosis who had at least 1 previous spinal fracture and decreased bone density of the spine. Patients received either placebo, or strontium in amounts of 170, 340, and 680 mg daily for 2 years. On follow up, bone density increased with increasing amounts of strontium. By the second year, there was a significant decrease in new fractures of the spine in those on 680mg daily... The authors concluded strontium ranelate increased vertebral bone mineral density and decreased the incidence of vertebral fractures.

A three year, double blind placebo controlled trial was conducted with 1649 postmenopausal women which indicated strontium supported healthy vertebral composition and was well tolerated. A three-year placebo-controlled double blind study of 5,091 postmenopausal women showed strontium supplementation supported health hip bones.
