|What Is It?
Strontium is one of many trace minerals essential for
bone health. It is a divalent cation and is transported
through the body using many of the same transport
molecules and receptors as calcium. Recent research
has highlighted strontium's potential to support bone
strength and health.*
Uses For Strontium
Bone Support: Strontium supports healthy osteoblast
differentiation and helps to keep osteoclast activity in
balance. Additionally, strontium supplementation supports
healthy collagen formation by osteoblasts, enhancing
bone tensile strength. In a multi-national, prospective
two-year placebo-controlled trial with 353 women,
strontium supplementation maintained healthy vertebrae
integrity as well as healthy bone mineralization. A
three-year placebo-controlled, double blind study with
1,649 postmenopausal women, indicated that a strontium
salt supported healthy vertebrae composition and was
well tolerated. In a preliminary analysis of a three-year
placebo-controlled, double blind study of 5,091
postmenopausal women, strontium supplementation
promoted healthy hip bones.*
What Is The Source?
Strontium is a naturally occurring mineral derived from
earthen ore and purified through a proprietary synthetic
reaction process with citric acid. The citric acid is derived
from corn dextrose fermentation. Vitamin C (ascorbyl
palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and
palm oil. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine

Pure Encapsulations recommends 1-3 capsules per day, in divided doses, with or between meals, away from calcium-containing foods or supplements.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?Since strontium is absorbed using calcium transport mechanisms, strontium supplements should not be taken at the same time as calcium supplements or calcium-containing foods. While supplementing with strontium, adequate calcium intake should be maintained. Strontium supplementation may be contraindicated for individuals with impaired renal function as altered excretion may have an effect on strontium accumulation and bone deposition characteristics. If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product.Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?At this time, there are no known adverse reactions when taken in conjunction with medications.
