        • Strontium is a naturally occurring mineral present in water and food. Trace amounts of strontium are found in the human skeleton. Strontium has an affinity for bone and is taken up at the bone matrix crystal surface. The influence of strontium on bone metabolism has been researched since the 1950's. Studies indicate that strontium positively effects bone metabolism to promote bone formation and decrease bone resorption, leading to normalized bone density.
        • Helps maintain strong, healthy bone.**

              My doctor recommended Strontium after my last bone density test results. This is an alternative to the once a month bone density medications which I had concerns about.
              I have just recently started using this product, so I really can't comment on the product as yet.

                        For the past few years, my GYN has been insisting, I take a prescription medication for bone loss, due to, my Bone Density test results, which had not been good. He said, I was at great risk for fracture, and the last few test results, had gotten worse. I refused to take any of these medications, as I had read bad reports on them all, and so, I decided to try "Doctors Best Strontium Bone Maker." I took if for a year, then had a bone density test. My GYN called me, because he could not believe the test results. I was now building bone, and the test results, were greatly improved. "What are you doing, he asked??? Whatever you are doing, keep doing it!"
                        Thanks so much to Doctors Best!! I am thrilled with the results!!

                                After reading an article a female pharmacist wrote stating the 3 well known prescription brands have proven stress fractures occurring in long term users but that this product actually does what it is supposed to do I stopped taking Fosamax after 11 months of painful knee joint pain that I never had before. I started on this product & now my Dexa Scan results went from Osteoporosis to Osteopenia. After two years I am due for another Dexa Scan in a couple of weeks & am anticipating pleasing results. I take two of these pills every morning & they do not upset my stomach. I take my calcium w/D at least an hour or more after taking the Strontium. Remember if your calcium pill does not dissolve in a glass of water it most likely is not in your stomach either. I would recommend Doctor's Best Strontium bone maker to everyone.

                                    My gyno seemed to be amazed when he compared my bone density test for two years in a row since taking Strontium. I am very please with the results. It shows osteopina but he tells me the numbers are good and they seem to be getting better. I need to check with him for this years results.

                                            I've been taking Strontium for a year and significantly improved my bone scan results after my doctor recomended it. She said everyone she recomends it to has shown improvement. I take 2 tabs (680 mg) in the morning and take my calcium at night. I also take 5000 mg of D. My bone scan was normal. Happiness.

                                            After taking this product for 18 months my DEXA scan showed improvement in my bone density. I will continue to use this product and expect continued improvement.

                                            I have been taking another strontium product, so I thought I would compare this to that.

                                            Did anyone get diarrhea taking strodium.?

                                            Best Answer: I don't know about anyone else, but it has never caused a problem for me. I do know it should be taken on an empty stomach since food and anything with calcium in it will interfere with absorption of strontium.

                                            Best Answer: I have taken Strontium Ranelate, the product that is available in Europe by prescription. That is not one of the reported side effects of that drug which has been studied extensively. High blood pressure among older persons is so common that I would look for other reasons for it than taking Strontium. I have been treated for high blood pressure before I started taking Strontium Citrate and it has not caused my blood pressure to increase in the 4 months that I have taken Strontium Citrate. I would suggest that you stop taking the Strontium and monitor your blood pressure at home to see if it goes down. If your blood pressure stays up, then you will know it is not the strontium that has made it go up and you should talk to your doctor about other causes of high blood pressure.

                                            How long before you see the results from taking strontium?

                                            Best Answer: A 2005 study gives result indicated below.

                                            Findings: In the entire sample, relative risk (RR) was reduced by 16% for all nonvertebral fractures (P = 0.04), and by 19% for major fragility fractures (hip, wrist, pelvis and sacrum, ribs and sternum, clavicle, humerus) (P = 0.031) in strontium ranelate-treated patients in comparison with the placebo group. Among women at high risk of hip fracture (age 74 yr and femoral neck bone mineral density T score –3, corresponding to –2.4 according to NHANES reference) (n = 1977), the RR reduction for hip fracture was 36% (P = 0.046). RR of vertebral fractures was reduced by 39% (P < 0.001) in the 3640 patients with spinal x-rays and by 45% in the subgroup without prevalent vertebral fracture.
                                            Strontium ranelate increased bone mineral density throughout the study, reaching at 3 yr (P < 0.001): +8.2% (femoral neck) and +9.8% (total hip).

                                            This question is for someone who has taken this product who has osteoporosis: When you had a bone density test, did the machine get recalibrated so the test was accurate?
                                            Judith G on Nov 27, 2012
                                            Best Answer: I have not had a bone density test yet. This is only my 3rd month of taking Strontium. You should ask the person who does your test or whoever is in charge how often their equipment is calibrated. If you are concerned about the accuracy of your test results, you should talk to your doctor.

                                            Does anyone have past experience in taking Strontium by opening the capsule and swallowing the powder mixed with another substance(like juice or apple sauce)? I can't swallow a capsule that size. The Mfg. says it should be taken whole or it would irritate the throat, and they don't know if it would still be effective if taken in a manner other than recommended. Anyone have any advice on this issue? I really want to take this product, but I just can't swallow the pill?

                                            Is it advisable to take this supplement while also taking Forteo which is a bone building synthetic parathyroid hormone? I have the question because it is advised on the product information to not take calcium while taking this product.
