Studies have shown that strontium, when taken before a healthy dose of calcium, plays a key role in the building and strengthening of bones. With just two capsules per day, Strontium Support II from AOR gives your bones that boost they need to be healthier, stronger, and keep you on the move.
Most conventional supplements that promote themselves as helpful against bone loss are just that: they can be great for preventing bone loss, but do little to promote the building of new, strong, healthy bones. AOR's Strontium Support II has two mechanisms of activity. It helps reduce the process of bone resorption: the breakdown of bones to release their mineral content. But when bone resorption occurs without the bone tissues and cells and cells being replaced, it leads to weakened bone structure, thus increasing the risk of fracture. So Strontium Support II also promotes the building of new bone tissue by increasing the absorption of the essential mineral strontium, which supports the function of osteoblasts (the cells which form new bone).
Each capsule contains:
Strontium* (from citrate) … 341 mg
[*Produced through pharmaceutical synthesis.]
Contains no wheat, gluten, corn, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulphites, mustard, soy, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish or animal byproducts.
Take one or two capsules daily on an empty stomach, at least two hours before or after food, calcium or milk since these can significantly reduce strontium absorption if taken together. Ensure an adequate daily intake of vitamin D and calcium.
