Strontium is one of the many trace minerals essential for bone health. Studies indicate that strontium positively effects bone strength and helps maintain normal bone density. Strontium may support bone formation and decrease bone resorption (or breakdown), thereby enhancing bone mineral density (BMD).
Strontium supplementation may be contraindicated for individuals with impaired renal function. Those who have this impairment should therefore consult a healthcare practitioner before beginning use of stontium.
