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.
Enhances strong‚ healthy bones
Bone is a unique tissue with a number of functions. The bones provide support and shape to the body‚ and also function to store minerals and maintain mineral balance. The influence of strontium on bone metabolism has been researched from as far back as 1870.
Bone health and strength is constantly being maintained by remodeling processes that are managed by osteoclasts (cells that break down bone) and osteoblasts (cells that build up bone). Strontium is now known to activate various cell signaling pathways to promote both a decrease in osteoclast activity and an increase in osteoblast activity. The maturation‚ numbers‚ and activity levels of osteoclasts are decreased by strontium‚ while renewal and activity of the osteoblasts are enhanced. Overall these strontium effects lead to supportive benefits to the microarchitecture‚ strength‚ quality‚ and density of healthy bone.
In addition to its effects on bone metabolism‚ strontium is also incorporated directly into bone when taken orally; in fact‚ 99% of the strontium content in the body is found in bone. Ongoing intake of strontium seems to improve the quality of bone mineralization as observed at the microscopic level. It seems that when calcium intake is adequate‚ strontium hardly substitutes for any calcium in the bone and instead promotes mineralization of new bone that is being formed. Studies suggest that after strontium consumption ceases‚ strontium in the bone is replaced over time by calcium.
Both animal and human research suggest that consumption of ionic salts of strontium‚ including the citrate form supplied by Strontium Bone Maker‚ leads to accumulation of strontium in the bone as well as enhanced bone density. The evidence strongly suggests that regardless of the ionic form being supplied‚ it is the strontium itself that has the positive effects on bone.
Animal studies suggest strontium may be a kind of catalyst for building bone. In one study with adult rats‚ a relatively low intake of strontium increased the number of bone forming sites in the thigh bones‚ without adverse effects on the mineral content or the mineralization quality of the bone matrix. Another study in rats indicated that strontium could support bone health associated with a deficiency of the hormone estrogen in females.
There is also some evidence that strontium can support healthy cartilage tissue. It seemingly can promote cartilage formation without affecting cartilage breakdown.
Serving Size: 2 capsules

Amount Per Serving %DV
Strontium 680 mg †
- (elemental) (from 1944mg Strontium citrate)
† Daily Value not established.

Contains nothing other than listed ingredients.
Does Not Contain: milk‚ egg‚ wheat‚ gluten‚ corn‚ soy‚ sugar‚ sweeteners‚ starch‚ salt‚ or preservatives.
Take two capsules daily with or without food. For maximum absorption and benefit‚ do not take at the same time as calcium or milk products. Be sure to take at least the RDA of calcium and Vitamin D3.
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.
Caution: To prevent mouth or throat irritation do not open capsule and pour contents directly into mouth
