Pure Encapsulations Strontium Citrate 90 vcaps
Trace mineral for bone health
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. 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 1649 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 5091 postmenopausal women strontium supplementation promoted healthy hip bones. 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.
Strontium promotes healthy osteoblast activity while maintaining healthy osteoclast activity to support healthy bones.
