Helps maintain strong, healthy bones.
Strontium is a naturally occurring mineral present in water and food. Trace amounts of strontium are found in the human skeleton. Strontium has an affinity for bone and is taken up at the bone matrix crystal surface. The influence of strontium on the bone metabolism has been researched since the 1950's. Studies indicate that strontium positively affects bone metabolism to promote bone formation and decrease bone resorption, leading to normalized bone density.
Helps Maintain Strong, Healthy Bones Mechanism of Action
Strontium is a bone-seeking mineral incorporated by ionic substitution for calcium onto the crystal surface of bone. Researchers have looked at the therapeutic potential of strontium based on in vitro, animal and human studies. After assessing and analyzing the results of several investigations, scientists theorize that strontium may benefit bone health via a two-pronged effect. It appears that strontium interacts with the cells responsible for the normal bone remodeling process. The cells responsible for bone formation are known as osteoblasts, and the cells responsible for bone breakdown, or resorption, are called the osteoclasts. Strontium may stimulate the replication of pre-osteoblasts, leading to an increased proliferation of osteoblasts (cells that build bone). This causes an increased synthesis of bone matrix. In terms of effects on osteoclasts (cells responsible for bone resorption), in vitro work shows that strontium directly inhibits their activity and prevents bone breakdown.
Animal studies have shown that supplementation with strontium is extremely beneficial as a bone building catalyst.
In one such study, strontium administered at low doses has been shown to increase the number of bone forming sites in thighbones of adult rats, without adverse effects on the mineral content of bone or mineralization of the organic bone matrix. A second study in rats indicated that strontium could reverse bone loss associated with a deficiency of the hormone estrogen in females.
Multiple clinical studies utilizing different forms of strontium have been conducted since the 1950s. Stable strontium as gluconate, carbonate, lactate and chloride have all been used in various trials that have reported efficacy of supplemental strontium in promoting healthy bones. Regardless of the form, it is the elemental strontium itself that exerts the positive effect on bone. While all of the various forms have a bioavailability of between 25 and 30%, gastric tolerance is reportedly better with strontium citrate, the form used in Strontium Bone Maker.

The best way to take your strontium is in the morning on an empty stomach as you will digest it quickly and you can then after one hour have your breakfast and take all your vitamins. Take the two caps at the same time. If you cannot swallow capsules please open capsule and put into apple sauce but not into any dairy products as the calcium in it will compete with the Strontium Bone Maker’s absorption.
