Strontium (Musculoskeletal Health)
Strontium is a common element which is naturally found in your bones. Studies show supplementation with strontium in its various forms is well tolerated and completely safe. Scientists have discovered strontium has a unique method of action which provides a dual activity in your bones. Strontium inhibits bone resorption while simultaneously stimulating bone growth, an exciting double benefit.
Strontium is better than calcium for making your bones almost unbreakable. Strontium acts like a "liquid magnet" to draw extra minerals into your bones, such as calcium, magnesium, boron, and zinc. This added mineral uptake makes your bones thicker and stronger in a relatively short amount of time. What’s more, strontium has both bone building and anti-depleting effects, so it increases bone density while staving off bone loss. That’s unheard of, no other nutrient does both. In one study, women who added strontium into their bone-building program cut their risk of fracture by 49% in the first year. By maintaining dense, sturdy bones, you can stay active and independent into your 80’s, 90’s, and beyond.
But the frightening truth is 1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over age 50 will suffer at least one bone fracture in their lifetime. That’s more than 1.5 million fractures caused by bone loss each year.
You can lower your fracture risk by more than half, simply by taking this nutrient, strontium, that’s been shown to be more effective for building strong bones than calcium and vitamin D combined.
Strontium is not a "magic bullet" and a comprehensive approach to regaining bone strength is needed. Other natural modalities of bone support, along with strontium, include vitamin D, magnesium, vitamin K2, weight bearing exercise and green leafy vegetables.
