  • 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.

                    Comments about Doctor's Bes Strontium Bone Maker - 60 Veggie Caps:

                    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!!

                        Three years ago I had my first bone scan and it indicated osteopenia. My doctor recommended Boniva. Boniva made me violently ill and I decided to find something without the side effects.

                            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.

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.

                                        Janet H: 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. Feb 6, 2013

                                        Eileen H: I've used this product and can't answer about the possibility of and increase in my blood pressure as I didn't do an readings during that time. However I do know that I stopped taking it as it made me feel dizzy on occasion. I'm not sure if that caused it, but I stopped taking it and felt better within a couple of days. I continue to just take Calcium (Vitamin Shoppe brand 1200 mg) every day and exercise.
                                        I think I remember reading another review of this product where another person did have elevated blood pressure.
                                        Hope this helps.

                                        Georgann G: I have been taking strontium citrate for over 2 years now and have not found it to raise my blood pressure at all. In the research I did before taking strontium there were no indications that blood pressure would be a problem. I was pleased that my last bone density test had improved my osteopenia after taking it for only 3 months. Next month I am due for another test and am very hopeful that my bone density has improved even more since taking strontium for the last two years. Feb 11, 2013

                                        Barbara Y: I have used this product and it has not caused any side affects. My chiropractor advised that I take Strontium rather than regular over the counter calcium tablets. I do have high blood pressure and take medication for it but it is totally under contro, actually runs a little low most times and has not changed since taking Strontium. I hope this helps.

                                        Helen B: 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).

                                        Suzi M: I have been taking strontium for over 2 years. One of those years from a another source. I compared the type and dose with that of Stontium Bone Maker and found them comparable and considerably less expensive through Vitamin Shoppe. I saw measurable improvement in my next complete bone density scan which was around 9 months later. However, I have to say that since I have osteoperosis, my program for treatment consists of walking 3 to 5 miles a day and taking a total of around 1500 mg calcium (Ultimate Woman +50 and Bone-Up) and vitamin K-2. My last bone scan showed that in one area, I moved to osteopenia from osteoperosis! Jun 6, 2013

                                        Eileen H: I have to be honest, I quit taking the capsules as I noticed after a couple of weeks I felt some dizziness. I hadn't changed anything else in my diet and continued to take the 1200 mg of calcium each night that I've done for years. I don't know i the Strontium had anything to do with what I was experiencing, but I quite and haven't had a problem since. I'm just sticking to my trusted calcium (Vitamin Shoppe brand of course).

                                        Janet H: 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. Dec 8, 2012

                                        Sharad Y: My father has been taking these supplements for ~1 year. There is a minor improvement of around 0.3 in bone density.

                                        He is also taking Aclasta and the improvement could be due to synergy between the 2 products or because of either. Very hard to tell.

                                        However, many docs are now recommending Strontium as it acts as a natural pore blocker for bones.

                                        Shari S: I went for x-rays on my hips and spine. There was no 'machine' other than that, and the results were very thorough. I am taking Stontium, but it's too early to know the outcome. I'm also taking a calcium supplement with phosphorous, and once a month Actonel to mitigate bone loss. Next bone scan should reveal how all this is helping (or not). Nov 27, 2012

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? Nov 26, 2013
