Strong Bones Need Strontium

We’ve all heard about the benefits of calcium for bone health and bone density, but have you heard of strontium? 
Strontium is a naturally-occurring alkaline earth metal that is very similar to calcium. Once absorbed in the body, strontium is mainly deposited in the bones and teeth. distributed throughout the body but preferentially deposited in bone and teeth.(Ref) Strontium has a number of positive effects on bone.

To have healthy bone mass, you must have bone mineral density. A number of factors contribute to bone mineral density: regular physical activity, not smoking, minimizing stress levels and maintaining hormonal balance.

Consuming a healthy diet and ensuring optimal levels of bone-building vitamins and minerals are a key therapeutic consideration for preserving bone strength. Strontium is a natural component of foods like meat, poultry, vegetables, and fruit, but these foods contain relatively low amounts. Cereals, grains and seafood have higher concentrations but in general the strontium content of the human diet and the daily intake of the element varies according to the geographic area and the type of food consumed.(Ref)
Why It’s Important
The bone remodeling process directly drives bone mineral density. Bone remodeling is a lifelong process of removing bone tissue from the skeleton (bone resorption) and depositing new bone tissue. Cells drive the process: osteoclasts break down bone, while osteoblasts create new bone. The osteoblasts create the new bone matrix of proteins and collagen and are responsible for bone remineralization and the formation of new bone.
Calcium is certainly prominent for bone health, but other nutrients are required for bone mineralization. Strontium is a key component, as are magnesium, vitamins D/K/C/B-complex, and other trace minerals. The right combination can significantly enhance bone remodeling and increase bone strength.
My private label Opti Bone Health offers the full spectrum of nutrients required for proper bone mineralization. These nutrients also help the body maintain a balanced osteoclast:osteoblast ratio. This easy-to-use supplement comes with an AM and PM packet that separates the calcium and strontium for better absorption.
If you are having bone density issues, have osteoporosis or have been cautioned that you are on the path to osteoporosis, consider Opti Bone Health today. Here’s to a stronger you!

08-09-21 Deep Dive PREMIUM – with Jamie Walden

Meet Jamie Walden, of Omega Dynamics. Imbued with matchless passion for all things “adventurous” and “fun”, Jamie’s teen years were filled with significant tumult (injuries, arrests, and choices of near life-long consequence). However, amid the rebellion and ruckus, Jamie continually endeavored to one day earn the title, “U.S. Marine”. After being nominated to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Defense, Intelligence, and Diplomacy in Washington, D.C., where he subsequently secured a nomination to the US Naval Academy, Jamie made the determination to simply enlist in the Marine Corps Infantry and achieve his childhood dream.

After leaving the Marines Corps, Jamie obtained a double major B.S. in Law Enforcement and History. Pursuing a career in Federal Law Enforcement, Jamie was selected as an Intern for the United States Marshals Service, and subsequent recruitment to a “Three Letter” agency. It was then, when Jamie received “the call”, that the Lord began testing and affirming the genuineness of his faith.

After again returning to Iraq in 2014 to serve the Christians suffering under the savage campaign of ISIS, Jamie and his wife Virginia were compelled to surrender their paradigm and follow the Lord into full-time ministry.

“The Mission of Omega Dynamics is this: to teach, train and equip “Those with ears to hear” to stand anew in their rightful place as more than conquerors in a kingdom that cannot be shaken…this generation is literally, eternally dying for us to”
