Strontium is of proven value in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis and is available on NHS prescription for this purpose. The problem with the NHS prescribable version is that it is made up with aspartame - a toxic sweetener. Indeed, this preparation has been associated with a risk of thromboembolism - most likely that is an effect of aspartame, which has been linked to such. There is no biologically plausible mechanism by which strontium could cause osteoporosis. See Osteoporosis - practical nutritional considerations
Studies show that strontium 300mgs daily is effective, 600mgs daily even more so. When strontium is taken together with the JOINT MIX I suggest taking 2 capsules of strontium 300 mgs ONCE A WEEK to compensate for the omission from the new joint mix.
As important in the prevention of osteoporosis is vitamin D. The above should be taken in addition to the Basic Package of supplements and a stone-age diet.
