Introduction: Strontium is an element that has both stable and radioactive forms. The radio active form that you get after an atomic bomb explosion is not what we care about here. What we are talking about here is the stable form of strontium. This element has 38 protons, reside as element 38 of the periodic table of elements.
It is right below calcium in its position in the periodic table, and it is not surprising when we see how and what strontium do for our body. Source of Strontium: One good news is that our earth has plenty of strontium. 0.04 percent of the earth crust is composed of strontium. It also present in the seawater, and as a trace element in our body. On average, the human body contains about 320 mg of strontium, most of them are for the bones and connective tissues.
What Can Strontium Do for Us? It has been shown by Mayo Clinic that a fairly high dose (like 1.7 gram)of strontium does no harm to our human body. It has also been shown using x-ray that people who live in areas that has more strontium in their water, their soil has stronger teeth and bones.
Those people in comparing with the population in large, has healthier teeth, no cavities and very little osteoporosis. Strontium, like calcium is a double charged base element, it can take place of calcium and help in the bone and connective tissue formation. It is also known by scientist that calcium and strontium should not be taking together. Calcium would be absorbed and strontium would be left alone if both are taking at the same time.
From the above study, we can see that strontium is also very important and vital to keep our bone healthy. Another important discovery of strontium is how it prevent the irritation effects of chemical on our skin. It is possible that strontium prevent sensory irritation such as stinging, burning,itching, and inflammation by interacting with the nociceptive neurons on our skin. How do we get Strontium?

However, with the depletion of essential minerals in our food, we have to be more aware of what and where we can get enough strontium. Taking strontium supplement is necessary.
