Strontium is one of the many minerals essential for bone health. Studies indicate that strontium positively affects bone strength and maintains healthy bone density.
Strontium is very safe and non-toxic. This product contains strontium citrate, not strontium 90, the toxic radioactive form that may come to mind. Strontium citrate has been a safely used substance for over 100 years, and there have been studies using 2 grams of strontium with no significant side effects. In fact, there are several forms of strontium in use today. However, strontium citrate is the most easily absorbed and used by the body. However, strontium supplementation may be contraindicated for individuals with impaired renal function. Please consult your healthcare practitioner if this is a concern.
