question about strontium

Just got back from my obgyn and she said I could quit the Actonel for 2 years and try the Strontium. She looked at all the studies I took with me and said it was my decision and she would go along with it. It's great to have doctors who listen. My question- can i get this at a health food store? What should I be looking for on the bottle. Any suggestions. Thanks for all the help.

Re: question about strontium

Hi 59yrold... Sounds like you have a good doctor. You can get the brand I use which is Dr. Best strontium Bonemaker at most health food stores, but you will pay through the nose. Buying online you can probably find it many places for 1/3 the price in store. NSI is another reputable brand, but I am not sure if you will find it in the store. Maybe only online. But it also at a very decent price. Maybe someone else will come along who knows if the stores sell it. I found a site where I get dr. best for $9.11 for 60 caps. If you search around online you should be able to find what you want.

Re: question about strontium

HI..i've been taking NSI strontium for several years and have never seen it at a store, i order it online. It does have a good price...i get a 3 month (240 caps) supply for just under $40. When shopping for strontium just be sure to get one with only strontium citrate and not one of the ones with a combo of things. You want to look for 340 mg. caps, which you'll take 2 of at the same time..many of us take it at bedtime. Welcome to the "out of the box bone builders club"..take care..phyllis
