Strontium Citrate Supplements

Description:  90 Vegetarian Capsules / 750 mg per 3 Vege caps by Life Extension

Mention strontium to most people, and they will almost always immediately think of strontium-90, a highly dangerous, radioactive component of nuclear fallout produced during atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons in the 1950s.  As a result of above-ground nuclear testing, radioactive strontium spread throughout the environment and contaminated dairy products and other foods, and subsequently accumulated in the bones of both children and adults.

The media made us well aware that strontium-90 could cause our bones to become radioactive, causing canc or some other horrible disease as a result.

So, in the minds of many, strontium is a poison to be avoided just like other toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum.

However, stable strontium -- meaning non-radioactive is nontoxic, even when administered in large doses for prolonged periods
.  It appears to be one of the most effective substances found for supporting bone-strength.

Furthermore, repeatedly administering stable strontium can even gradually eliminate radioactive strontium from the body.  The stable form slowly replaces the radioactive form in bone and radioactive strontium is excreted in the urine.

Strontium is a naturally occurring trace mineral.  For optimal utilization do not take strontium with calcium-containing supplements or foods.  Dr. J.Y. Reginster, one of the principal strontium researchers, cautions that co-administration of strontium with calcium appears to impair strontium absorption.  So, strontium citrate should be taken on an empty stomach and not be taken with other multi-minerals that usually include calcium.

Strontium is element number 38 of the periodic table of elements.  It was discovered in 1808 and was named after Strontian, a town in Scotland.  Strontium is one of the most abundant elements on earth, comprising about 0.04 percent of the earths crust.  At a concentration of 400 parts per million, there is more strontium in the earths crust than carbon.  Strontium is also the most abundant trace element in seawater, at a concentration of 8.1 parts per million.  The human body contains about 320 mg of strontium.

Strontium is just below calcium in the periodic table.  Like calcium, strontium has two positive charges in its ionic form.  Strontium in these crystals imparts additional strength to these tissues.

Recommended dosage:  One to two capsules per day in divided doses on an empty stomach away from calcium-containing foods and supplements.
