Osteoporosis is a bone disease responsible for 35,000 cases of hip fractures per year, according to studies. There are several options for treating this condition and its complications. Want to know if strontium supplements help fight osteoporosis?


Loss of bone mass and damage to internal bone structure are the hallmarks of the disease. Strontium is a naturally occurring trace element that can be stored up to 99% in bone. Over the years, this mineral has been used to treat osteoporosis, sensitive teeth, bone pain and even prostate cancer.
 


What is strontium?


Strontium is a soft metal found in nature as a sulphate and carbonate. This element has similar characteristics to calcium and magnesium, so it is able to bind to the tissues of the human body. It can occupy the position of calcium in bones, encouraging development and growth.


 

Benefits of strontium citrate in osteoporosis


Strontium citrate is a recently studied drug used in the treatment of osteoporosis. This substance has a dual mechanism of action, as it is able to inhibit the destruction of bone while stimulating the formation of new tissue.


Research states that strontium citrate increases collagen synthesis in bone and promotes the differentiation of osteoblastic precursors responsible for mineralisation. It has great benefits in preventing fractures and increasing bone density in people with osteoporosis.


The SOTI (Therapeutic Intervention for Spinal Osteoporosis) study examined the effect of strontium in preventing vertebral fractures. It evaluated 1,649 postmenopausal women with at least one vertebral fracture treated with 2 grams of strontium per day for 3 years. The end result was a reduction of up to 40% in the risk of new fractures, with an early reduction of 52% per year.

On the other hand, the TROPOS (Treatment of Peripheral Osteoporosis) study of 5,091 postmenopausal women in Europe and Australia showed that using 2 grams of strontium per day significantly improved bone density and reduced the risk of fractures by up to 36%.


Currently, some researchers recommend a dose of 500 milligrams to 1 gram per day to prevent osteoporosis and a dose of 2 grams to treat existing osteoporosis.
