Strontium is a mineral that is similar in its physical and chemical properties to calcium. Research has shown strontium to provide all natural bone support through its ability to naturally increase the formation of osteoblasts (cells that build up bone) and slow down the formation of osteoclasts (cells that breakdown bone tissue) helping to maintain healthy bone density. As a result, strontium imparts a balancing effect on the osteoblasticosteoclastic ratio, boosting skeletal strength via two different mechanisms. Strontium’s ability to strengthen both the bone matrix and skeletal density makes it an important part of any bone building regimen.

Bone is the rigid structure that makes up our skeleton, but is actually an active, living organ that is constantly being built up and broken down by osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Aging, genetic predisposition, lifestyle factors, and co-morbidities can alter the balance between breakdown and building of new bone structure, bone strength, and flexibility. Mineral balance is one nutritional factor that is essential to bone. Strontium is a trace mineral that may help contribute to bone integrity, increasing BMD when bone anabolic processes are impaired by hormonal imbalance, aging, genes, or behaviors such as smoking, drinking carbonated beverages, or excessive alcohol intake. Strontium is abundant in nature and occurs naturally in sea water and in soil. Good plant sources include cabbage, parsley, grapefruit, nuts, asparagus, onion, carrot, tomato, dandelion, oranges, and cucumber. Though not considered an essential nutrient, early research suggested that strontium levels in water may be inversely related to the incidence of dental caries and that it may help control processes of bone resorption.
