The Truth About A Popular Supplement

May 28, 2017

If you’re working to reverse Osteoporosis chances are you’ve heard of Strontium, a new supplement that claims to help promote strong bones. A few have asked me why I don’t include it in my supplement protocol… here’s the skinny on this supplement.

Natural Does Not Mean Nutritious
The word “natural” gets thrown around a lot in the field of nutrition and amongst the practitioners of holistic medicine. But the meaning of ‘natural’, or the actual value of a natural substance is often unclear.

A compound such as strontium is marketed as natural because its components occur in nature. While you can find strontium in nature, keep in mind, just because something is labeled natural, doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Nature is full of toxins and venoms that are dangerous or even deadly, regardless of their organic origins. Just because something occurs naturally, doesn’t mean it’s nutritious.

Does Your Body Need Strontium?
Supplements are intended to ensure that you consume nutrients that are vital to your bones and your overall health. In other words, they should fill in potential gaps in your diet and bolster your nutritional intake of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. But, your body does not need strontium, even though it does occur naturally in a few of the foods we eat in very, very, very small amounts.

Thick Does Not Equal Strong
While strontium can make your bones thicker it does not prevent fractures because it doesn’t improve the overall strength of your bones. Thicker bones are actually less flexible and have lower tensile strength — which is your bones’ ability to resist stretching and pulling.

Can Strontium Be Harmful?
Studies reveal all of the side effects the drug can have: nausea, diarrhea, headaches, serious skin reactions, liver inflammation, reduced number of red blood cells, and in some rarer cases fainting and dangerous blood clots.

Additionally, the European Medicines Agency in 2013 recommended the use of strontium ranelate be restricted due to the risk of heart problems. The Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee advised that these drugs not be used to treat osteoporosis. However, European regulators refused to ban Protelos. Instead the issue a warning that doctors shouldn’t prescribe it to anyone with a heart condition.

The take-away is that strontium (whether combined with ranelate or another compound) has unintended negative consequences on your body.

How To Get Strong & Flexible Bones
You don’t need Strontium. Following my nutrition guidelines, eating a healthy, alkaline diet and taking the supplements outlined 
in my protocol will make your bones strong WITH tensile strength — which gives your bones their flexibility.
