Strontium is a mineral that has similar properties to calcium.

Why These Natural Ingredients? Strontium

Strontium is a mineral with similar properties as calcium and is widely used to support bone health. Studies have shown that supplementation with strontium is a safe and effective way to help decrease bone loss and build bone. Strontium taken along with other dietary bone nutrients such as vitamin D, vitamin K, and calcium, may help to increase bone formation while also preventing bone resorption. In clinical studies, strontium has been shown to decrease the risk of vertebral fractures by 41% over 3 years and by 49% within the first year of treatment. Studies have also shown that 1 gram daily of strontium ranelate was minimally required to prevent bone loss in postmenopausal non-osteoporotic women, however 2 grams a day were needed to increase vertebral bone mineral density in osteoporotic postmenopausal women. For a more complete bone building and retention product, ask your doctor about the Pro Bono Packets with strontium. Dosage Contraindications
