santahat Possible Bone Health Benefits of Strontium

Strontium a supplement probably most people are not familiar with may help keep bones strong, and resistant to fracture. Strontium is a naturally occurring mineral, in the same family as calcium and magnesium, and it’s been shown to promote bone growth in both animals and people.

In a 2002 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 160 post-menopausal females who did not have osteoporosis were asked to take placebo or varying amounts of strontium daily. Compared to the placebo group, women who took 340 milligrams strontium a day had a significant increase in bone mineral density in two years’ time. All groups also took 500 milligrams of calcium daily

In another recent study, 353 women who had already experienced at least one osteoporosis-related vertebral fracture took varying levels of strontium ranelate or a placebo. In the group who tool 680 milligrams of strontium daily, there was a 3% increase in lumbar bone mineral density per year, significantly greater than placebo. At the end of the second year of the study, there was a significant decrease in fractures in the strontium group compared to placebo.


Calcium inhibits the absorption of strontium. If you choose to use supplemental strontium it is very important not to take it at the same time that you take calcium containing supplements or even eat calcium rich foods. Therefore, avoid bone support supplement formulas that contain both calcium and strontium. Take calcium at night and strontium in the morning
It’s also suggested you get at least the RDI of calcium and vitamin D3 for best results. Suggested dosage is 680 mg a day.

As always, do your own research and decide for yourself if strontium might be something you want to try.
