Nutrition / Strontium / Treatment / July 28, 2014

The body needs strontium because it contains relatively large amounts of it, 90% of which is found in the skeleton. Strontium is an element from the earth discovered in 1790 by a Scottish chemist Adair Crawford. He found it in a barium crystal ore near the Scottish town of Strontian. By the 1940’s research began to prove that strontium was important in the development of a healthy skeletal system. In fact, strontium is shown to stop bone loss. Interest in strontium increased when animal diets with added strontium were proven to increase the buildup of dentin tissue in teeth. [1] Further evidence confirmed that healthy teeth contain more strontium than teeth with cavities, which gave indication to researchers that it would likely help bone too. [1] It’s worth noting that strontium is almost always present in the same foods in…

The European Medicine Agency (EMA) has issued cautionary advice to doctors on prescribing strontium ranelate, sold under brand names Osseor or Protelos by Les Labaratoires Servier, to those who are immobilised, have or run the risk of venous thromboembolism. The warning prohibits doctors from prescribing this strontium ranelate to such patients. Venous thromboembolism is a deadly condition that occurs in those who have been admitted to hospitals for long and even those at home who are immobile due to any health condition. It includes both pulmonary embolism as well as deep vein thrombosis. Strontium ranelate is used in the treatment of osteoporosis in premenopausal women so that they run a lower risk of hip or spinal fractures. Strontium ranelate has a dual function in that it increases the production of bone-forming cells osteoblast and reduces osteoclast production or cells that…

Nutrition / Research / Strontium / January 10, 2012

Osteopenia and osteoporosis patients are often confused when their doctor recommends strontium for them. Patients then typically read up information about strontium, come across sensational write ups that misinform and create fear for Strontium. Doctors usually prescribe either of the two variants strontium ranelate or strontium citrate. After doing some of their own spade work, patients then begin to wonder why they were not prescribed the other form. First let’s begin by dispelling the fear of strontium. Strontium is a naturally occurring silvery white or yellowish mineral found in the soil, and it has some serious health benefits. People who consume organic and farm produce usually get enough of this mineral and do not require strontium supplements. You can find out more about strontium-rich foods on our dedicated strontium food sources page. In it’s natural state strontium is a stable…
