Strontium Support II
Strontium was the first mineral that was shown to rebuild bone at the same time as reducing its resorption. It is an essential nutrient in the development, structure, function and health of the skeletal system. While supplements like calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K maintain bone health, and conventional bone drugs reduce bone degradation, strontium actually helps rebuild bone.
It does this by increasing osteoblast production while decreasing osteoclast production, resulting in increased bone development and decreased bone loss. Since strontium is similar in molecular structure to calcium, it is thought to activate the calcium receptors in the bone, stimulating the building of new bone and telling the body to use calcium effectively in bone tissue, while inhibiting bone breakdown. Strontium also improves the retention of calcium, phosphorus and protein. Many clinical trials have shown that strontium supplementation significantly reduces the risk of fracture in women with osteoporosis.
It’s important not to take your Strontium supplement at the same time as your calcium supplements. Calcium and Strontium use the same pathways for absorption in the intestinal tract, so taking a calcium supplement along with your Strontium can dramatically reduce absorption. The best protocol - and the one used in the most recent clinical trials - is to take your Strontium either three hours after your last meal of the day, or one hour before breakfast in the morning, or both. Because studies suggest that one last dose of calcium just before retiring can help prevent excessive resorption of bone overnight, it may be best to take all of your Strontium before breakfast, leaving you free to take a calcium supplement just before you go to bed.
AOR's Strontium Support II is an excellent addition to calcium supplementation for those with an increased risk of bone fractures or low bone mineral density.
Take one or two capsules daily on an empty stomach, at least two hours before or after consuming food, calcium or milk since these can significantly reduce strontium absorption if taken together. Ensure an adequate daily intake of calcium and vitamin D.Supplement Facts
