Strontium is an oligo-trace mineral that sits below calcium on the periodic table, placing calcium, strontium, and magnesium in the same chemical family. Strontium is a naturally-occurring mineral in soil and food, and up to 99% of the body’s strontium supply is stored in the bones. Although no deficiency level has been established for strontium, it is highly involved in the healthy formation and duration of strong bones. Strontium may strongly complement Calcium’s bone-building activity, although the two minerals must be taken at a separate times for good absorption.
According to numerous studies, Strontium can greatly protect bones even if they are starting to thin, particularly in the spine and hip. Studies from the US and Europe show a strong ability to help build bone at a fairly rapid pace, possibly reducing the risk of a fracture within the first year. These studies used various forms of Strontium, including Strontium ranelate, gluconate, carbonate, and lactate. InVite’s supplements use Strontium Citrate because minerals in Citrate form have greatly improved absorption, with higher potency in fewer capsules. Strontium may improve the strength of the spongy-inner core of the bone (called trabecular bone) by 8%. The dense outer layer of bone (called cortical bone) may improve in strength by a powerful 11% with Strontium supplementation.
Strontium is useful for anyone who takes prescription drugs that may contribute to thinning bones. These drugs include diuretics, prednisone and other steroid drugs, and Synthroid (levothyroxine) which is commonly prescribed for an under-functioning thyroid.
Citrate itself is used in the production of energy by all cells in our body, making this a very natural form of the mineral for our body. Many of InVite’s minerals are in the Citrate form.
InVite®’s Strontium Citrate provides 250mg of elemental strontium per capsule. Suggested serving size is one (1) vegetarian Vcaps® taken three times per day.
Take at least one hour before or two hours after any other calcium source including food, medicine, or other supplements.

Here, Jerry speaks about the benefits of Strontium…
We’re getting fabulous feedback on Strontium for bone health. Strontium is a mineral just like calcium, just like zinc, just like magnesium. When you take it for your bones, you have to take it separately. And who should take it? People who need stronger bones. It has an appetite for building new healthy bone. So, calcium helps to rebuild the old bone; Strontium favors new bone. That’s a good thing. A lot of the drugs you’re taking only favor old bone. They slow down the breakdown of old bone. They don’t favor building new bone. So, when you take your Fosamax, alendronate, all those drugs, they’re maintaining the old bone, and they work. There’s a lower incidence of fractures on those drugs, and it’s important. Fractures are disabling. They mess up your mobility. They can cause infection. So, those drugs are lowering the number of women and elderly men who are developing hip fractures and spinal fractures.
The other thing about Strontium is that it works, according to the research, in every age group. The drugs lose some of its effects in older women. They don’t work as well when you’re 70, 80, and 90, but if you take the Strontium, it still has an impact. So, you’re doing the best you can and preventatively, taking two once a day, will help. And if you really have a bone issue, three to four a day is better. So, sometimes, people are taking three a day; I’ll say, “Take all three at bedtime. Don’t worry about it.” Or, take two twice a day, away from food. That’s the best case scenario. And Strontium also is very good for the hip and very good for the spinal bone. It’s good for bones all over the body; your wrist bone, your ribs, your ankle bone, you name it. But it’s great for the spine, it’s great for the hips, and it’s a mineral like calcium. You don’t take it at the same time as calcium because they’ll bond together and you’re not going to absorb neither. So, there’s no point. You take it a couple of hours apart. You’re fine. You’ll get the benefits of both, and that’s the way to go. So, our pharmaceutical-grade Strontium and strontium citrate is great for bones.
As a dietary supplement for adults, suggested serving size is 1 vegetarian Vcaps®, 3 times per day one hour before or two hours after any calcium source including from food, medicine, or supplements.

What is Strontium Hx®?
Strontium is a mineral just like calcium or zinc. Research shows that Strontium tends to become stored inside our bones, helping them become thicker, stronger and less fragile. Some research has also shown that that Strontium, like calcium, lowers the risk of a fracture due to thinning bones.
Where does Strontium Hx® come from?
Strontium is a naturally-occurring mineral found in small amounts in water and food, as well as in our bones. Strontium is also found in small amounts in spices, seafood, whole grains, root and leafy vegetables, and legumes. The amount of strontium found in food would not be sufficient for bone-building, so it must be taken in supplement form in order to reap these benefits.
| Benefits: |
- May help build up bones, making them both thicker and stronger
- May be helpful for the bones of women after menopause, or any man or woman at any time that may need it. Men with low testosterone may need extra Strontium for bone health.
- Dual activity: slows the rate at which bone is resorbed (the rate at which bone is broken down) while speeding up the rate at which bone is rebuilt (drugs mostly slow the breakdown with few exceptions, without speeding up the rate of rebuilding)
- Works in all age groups, even in those over 80 years of age (many drugs work poorly for building bone in those over 80)
- May improve the bone strength that is weakened
- May help improve back pain due to arthritis
- May help improve the health of the meniscus
- May be used along with medication to rebuild bone – however, be sure to take at a separate time of day from prescription medications
- May be used by anyone who has thinning of the spine, hips, wrist, or any other bones. Strontium may help rebuild all of these bones.
- Convenient serving size of 1 vegetarian Vcaps®, 3 times per day. Take one hour before or two hours after any other calcium source including food, medicine, or supplements
- Provided in Vegetarian Vcaps® capsule for enhanced bioavailability and absorption
- Made using GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices)

I am a 67 year old female. Two years ago my Dexa scan showed an 8.7 decrease in bone mineral density of the femoral neck. I then took strontium for 1 year. My most recent Dexa scan showed a 4.7 increase in bone mineral density of the femoral neck. The doctor is asking what am I doing?
