Strontium is an important mineral for bone health and it is found in most foods where calcium is found. In 2002, the world’s first supplemental strontium citrate was introduced in Europe for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia, postmenopausal women and those at an increased risk of bone fractures. We compound this in 227 mg capsules with pure ingredients. Strontium is a mineral that actually helps rebuild bone. While supplements like Calcium, Vitamin D and Vitamin K maintain bone health, and conventional bone drugs reduce bone degradation, Strontium actually increases osteoblast production while decreasing osteoclast production, resulting in increased bone development and decreased bone loss.
Since Strontium is similar in molecular structure to calcium, it is thought to activate the calcium receptors in the bone, stimulating the building of new bone and telling the body to use calcium effectively in bone tissue, while inhibiting bone breakdown. A recently published study showed that strontium was not only safe to take over the course of 10 years, but also that it continued to reduce the risk of osteoporotic fractures throughout this time period. Strontium is an excellent addition to calcium supplementation for those with osteoporosis or osteopenia, postmenopausal women or those at an increased risk of bone fractures.
