Life Extension - Strontium Caps 750 mg. - 90 Vegetarian Capsules
Life Extension's Strontium Caps contains minerals for bone health. Prescribed for years in Europe to promote healthy bone aging, strontium is an organic trace mineral whose metabolism is closely linked to that of calcium. (It resembles calcium at the molecular level.)
Strontium citrate concentrates in the skeletal system, where it plays a key role in supporting bone tissue density. The suggested daily serving of Life Extension's 3 vegetarian Strontium Caps supplies 750 mg of this vital trace mineral.
Taken together with Dr. Strum’s Intensive Bone Formula, the new Strontium Caps provide a complete daily nutrient regimen for individuals in need of especially comprehensive bone health support.
Strontium is a mineral that is not classified as essential for the human body.
Where is it found?
Strontium is widely distributed throughout nature. Strontium levels in the soil determine how much strontium will be in the foods grown in particular areas. Areas with strontium-rich soils also tend to have higher levels of strontium in the drinking water.
Life Extension's Vison
Our goal at Life Extension is to increase the quality and longevity of human life with science-based, “cutting edge” formulations. The unique ingredients included in Life Extension products are sometimes five to ten years ahead of the products sold by commercial vitamin companies.
Every week, Life Extension's in-house research staff analyzes thousands of scientific studies, reviews dozens of the world's leading peer-reviewed scientific, health, and medical journals, and interacts with leading anti-aging researchers to uncover the very latest breakthroughs as they relate to nutritional supplementation. This information is then passed on to their product development team which develops scientifically innovative, health-promoting formulations.
For over 25 years, Life Extension has developed nutritional supplements with the highest degree of quality, potency, and purity. Unlike discount supplement providers, Life Extension differentiates itself through quality, not price. Many discount products, for example, use low grade vitamin C imported from China that contains traces of arsenic, lead, and iron. Since the FDA does not believe anyone should take more than 100mg a day of vitamin C, the FDA permits the importation of this contaminated vitamin C. Many Life Extensionists take over 3,000 mg of vitamin C a day, so it is crucial that they use top-quality vitamin C that has gone through 18 purification steps to remove contaminants.
Life Extension’s complete line of nutritional supplements includes vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phyto-nutrients and standardized herbal concentrates.
Life Extension's Commitment to Scientific Research
Commercial companies have made huge profits on products such as coenzyme Q10, melatonin and DHEA, each of which was introduced to the U.S. market by Life Extension at considerable risk. Life Extension performed the research on these products, determined their validity and viability, and subsequently brought them to market based upon the strength of evidence behind them.
In the past seven years, Life Extension has funded over $21 million in research through their affiliations with such esteemed institutions as U.C. Berkeley and Mt. Sinai Medical Center. In 2004, Life Extension's scientists were awarded a $900,000 grant to continue their pioneering work, and they collaborated with BioMarker Pharmaceuticals and scientists at the National Cancer Institute to develop new anti-aging and anti-cancer therapies. This resulted in a recently accepted publication in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In addition, Life Extension has funded life span studies at the Universities of Wisconsin, California at Riverside, and Arkansas, gene transfer studies at the Gerontology Research Center in Baltimore, neurotransmitter studies to find the key to brain aging at the University of California at Berekely, and resveratrol studies BioMarker Pharmaceuticals in collaboration with Harvard Medical School and Critical Care Research.
