Strontium is a silvery metal found naturally as a non-radioactive element. About 99% of the strontium in the human body is concentrated in the bones.
A special form of strontium called strontium ranelate can increase bone formation and prevent bone loss when used in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. There is some interest in using strontium for osteoarthritis because developing research suggests it might boost the formation of collagen and cartilage in joints. There is also interest in studying strontium for preventing tooth decay because researchers have noticed fewer dental caries in some population groups who drink public water that contains relatively high levels of strontium.
What is Strontium used for?
- Bone pain related to bone cancer.
- Sensitive teeth.
- Osteoporosis ("bone thinning").
- Prostate cancer.
