Recent studies have emphasized the potential benefits strontium citrate can offer to promote support of bone strength and overall health. Strontium levels in the soil determine how much strontium will be in the foods grown in particular areas. Studies to date have predominantly focused on strontium ranelate rather than the readily available strontium citrate supplement as used in this study. It is also available in certain dietary or nutritional supplements. The use of strontium ranelate has never been approved in the u. Bone mineral density is a major determinant of bone mass and is the most commonly measured quality of bone. Natural strontium citrate in supplement form, on the other hand, is freely available all over the world.
Research conducted for 36 months on human hip bone tissues from postmenopausal osteoporotic women treated with strontium ranelate), found a very small number of calcium ions were replaced by strontium ions in the hydroxyapatite crystals in newly formed bone. Regardless, i still think you are correct in suggesting a lower than 680 mg/day dose of strontium citrate may be helpful. Although hormone therapy is a beneficial treatment for certain men, it does have negative side effects, one of which is an increased risk of low bmd (Bone mineral density) and osteoporosis.

Strontium, like calcium, incorporates into both trabecular and cortical bone, but strontium deposits almost entirely into new trabecular bone, with one strontium ion substituting for less than one calcium ion out of 10, in other words, for every 10 calcium ions your bones absorb, they will absorb less than 1 strontium ion. Our kidneys eliminate strontium far more quickly than calcium: Three times as much strontium is lost in urine compared to calcium. The purpose of this paper is to report the main results concerning the interactions of strontium (Sr) with bone mineral in animals and in osteoporotic women treated with strontium ranelate (Sr). In addition, algaecal suggests taking strontium boost along with algaecal plus. Furthermore, one of the studies measured bone mineral density after treating two groups with differing doses of algaecal, yet the treatment regimen also included their strontium boost product. However, i read your book and see that one study shows no bmd increase after a year on strontium for those that were on bone drugs for 10 years or more. I use algaecal plus because it provides not just calcium (Although it naturally contains 4 different types of calcium), but the entire diversity of trace minerals utilized by the marine algae to build it’s bony structure, plus vitamin d3, plus vitamin k2, plus extra magnesium, vitamin c and boron. In order to not loose more bone and get osteopenia in the future, i decided to also take strontiumboost, which i just ordered. Take a look at my post on magnesium supplements for a full discussion of this.
Researchers usually adjust for this when reporting bone density in strontium studies. Once in bone, strontium beneficially affects both aspects of the bone remodeling process: It not only slows down the development of osteoclasts (The cells that take away bone) thus lessening bone removal activity, but also enhances the development of osteoblasts (The bone cells which build bone), thus increasing bone forming activity. Just as restoring gestational folic acid to prevent open neural tube defects or supplementing with iron to ameliorate iron-deficiency anemia are recognized as credible and indicated nutritional interventions, remediation of essential biochemicals to restore and maintain bone strength is both evidence-based and science-based medicine. Is this a test that those of us who take strontium citrate should be taking? Strontium is a mineral from the earth that is naturally found in your body in small amounts. If i have strontium two hours before the kale will that be sufficient? The key takeaway here is the difference between safe, natural strontium citrate in supplements and the synthetic strontium ranelate drug and it’s long list of side effects. Radioactive strontium isotopes (85Sr and 89 sr) are also used as delivery agents for chemotherapy drugs and for diagnostic purposes in kinetic studies. There are many causes of bone loss, none of which are treated by these drugs, and all have numerous adverse effects. Secondly, strontium boost is strontium citrate.

All of this concern has been caused by a single article that claimed that strontium accumulates more so in the thicker outer portion of the bone (Cortical bone) rather than the inner matrix, or cancellous bone, that is most affected by osteoporosis. I will not know that for a fact until i complete at least 6 months of the algaecal/strontium regiment and my next dexa scan. Boron supplementation elevates the serum concentrations of 17 beta estradiol and testosterone, again only when dietary magnesium is low.

While all of these studies reported positive findings, none of them present compelling evidence that algaecal is significantly more effective at improving bone health than other calcium supplements. While similar in nature to calcium, strontium is not an essential mineral and is found in comparatively small amounts compared to calcium. At low doses, strontium ranelate results in uncoupling of bone turnover by stimulating osteoblastic activity and decreasing osteoclastic activity. I had stopped taking strontium several years ago as i felt i no longer required the extra support, but after reviewing all the latest research on this extremely beneficial mineral a little over a year ago now, i started taking a half dose (340 Mg/d) myself to maintain the health of my bones and will continue to do so. How do you take strontium so it is properly absorbed?
