Contains a naturally occurring mineral that has a proven effect on bone health.* The tablets contain an herbal extract to improve absorption. They are designed to break down quicker than capsules. Two tablets a day provide an equivalent dosage to recent clinical studies. BioStrong is meant to be adjunct to Calcium and Vitamin D.*
Strontium was listed in the British pharmacopoeia in 1884, and has been used since that time to treat and prevent osteoporosis. Studies over the past one hundred years have shown that it benefits bone health. In a Mayo Clinic study of 32 patients receiving Strontium for up to three years, symptoms improved in all patients. In a study of six osteoporosis patients at McGill University, 600-700 mg of strontium carbonate resulted in a 172% increase in the rate of bone formation, decreased pain, and improved mobility.*
In a two-year French study of 338 post-menopausal women taking strontium with 500 mg of calcium and 800IU of vitamin D daily, women taking a comparable dosage of BioStrong showed bone density increases of 3% in the first year, 2.4% in the second year, with a 44% reduction in new vertebral fractures compared to the placebo group. In a larger study of 1649 post-menopausal women who had a least one vertebral fracture participants taking strontium had half as many vertebral fractures at the end of a year as the control group who received placebos. After three years, bone density increased 14.4% in the spine, and 8.3% at the femoral neck. In the largest study, 5,091 women who took therapeutic dosages every day for three years, showed a 41% reduction in hip fractures.*
Strontium is found in small amounts in human bones and teeth. Clinical studies have shown it to be safe. It is found in many foods including, seafood, whole grains, legumes and vegetables. BioStrong contains the same active dosage of strontium used in most recent studies with an herb extract, peperine that has been found to increase nutrient absorption. Tablets are designed to dissolve more quickly than capsules.*
