Serious Cardiovascular Risks Associated with Strontium, Health Canada Warns
Strontium supplements should not be taken by people with a history of, or risk factors for heart disease, circulatory problems, or blood clots, according to a safety review conducted by Health Canada (the Canadian equivalent of the FDA). The recommendation is based on findings of increased risk of cardiovascular events seen in people with known risk factors or history of cardiovascular disease who took a prescription form of strontium (strontium ranelate) at a dose of 680 mg per day.
