- Stimulates bone growth while slowing bone loss
- Reduces the risk of fractures
- Clinically effective dose & safe for long-term use
Strontium is an important mineral for bone health and it is found in most foods where calcium is found.
While supplements like calcium vitamin D and vitamin K maintain bone health and conventional bone drugs reduce bone degradation strontium actually helps rebuild bone. It does this by increasing osteoblast production while decreasing osteoclast production resulting in increased bone development and decreased bone loss. Since strontium is similar in molecular structure to calcium it is thought to activate the calcium receptors in the bone stimulating the building of new bone and telling the body to use calcium effectively in bone tissue while inhibiting bone breakdown. A recently published study showed that strontium was not only safe to take over the course of 10 years but also that it continued to reduce the risk of osteoporotic fractures throughout this time period. Strontium Support II is an excellent addition to calcium supplementation for those with osteoporosis or osteopenia post-menopausal women or those at an increased risk of bone fractures.
In 2002 AOR introduced the world’s first supplemental strontium citrate for those with osteoporosis osteopenia post-menopausal women and those at an increased risk of bone fractures. AOR’s Strontium Support II comes in two sizes and provides an effective dose of this bone health powerhouse in a convenient two capsule-a-day formula.

Non-medicinal Ingredients*: sodium stearyl fumarate. Capsule: hypromellose.
*NMIs are subject to change. Always read and follow the label for accurate ingredient and allergen information.
Adult Dosage (50 years and older): Take one or two capsules daily on an empty stomach, at least two hours before or after consuming food, calcium or milk since these can significantly reduce strontium absorption if taken together. Ensure an adequate daily intake of calcium and vitamin D.
Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you have or are at high risk for blood clots (e.g. if you are temporarily or permanently immobilized, over the age of 80, taking birth control pills, etc.), heart diseases and/or circulatory problems (e.g. Venous Thromboembolism (VTE), heart attack, peripheral arterial disease, stroke, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, etc.), or have kidney disease. May cause temporary transient increases in levels of creatine kinase that are unassociated with any disorder. Discontinue use and consult a health care practitioner in case of rash or hypersensitivity, as this may be a sign of a serious allergic reaction (DRESS or Stevens-Johnson syndrome). Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond six months.
