The Real Thing Bone Revolution 2 Tablets

We are not aware of any problems with the use of Bone Revolution 2 and have only had very positive feedback about its effectiveness. However, since we currently are not able to show that the recent findings of potentially serious side effects of a similar but registered pharmaceutical product, do not apply to Bone Revoluion 2, we cannot take the risk of making it available to you without prescription.

The REAL THING is committed to providing products that are for the benefit of the consumer and it is in the REAL interest of your health that we have decided to stop selling BR2 until we are able to make it available through the proper channels.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the warnings associated with strontium and how this may affect you, please speak to your Doctor or Pharmacist.


Natural strontium citrate. A bone-building mineral in its own right. And an added bonus for the Bone Revolution 1 team.



What? Strontium is a structural cousin of calcium. Both minerals are found naturally in bones, especially those being remodelled or rebuilt.

So what’s the problem? Strontium works with calcium in building bones. You just can’t take them simultaneously. They’re family, they look alike, meaning they compete for the same absorption sites and get in one another's way.

The solution? Yes, strontium is a bone mineral in its own right. But it also works well with the calcium and other nutrients in the Bone Rev 1 team. You just can’t take the cousins simultaneously. We’ve kept them apart so you get the best of both.


ALL TOGETHER NOW. New bone health research has led to a multi-pronged approach that combines calcium with other bone nutrients like vitamin D, magnesium, boron, strontium and a spread of trace minerals. It might sound like a lot to swallow. But it’s easier with the Bone Rev 1 and 2. Take both supplements as directed for at least six months. You’ll see.



It’s a triple threat, or rather a triple benefit. Various animal studies and a 2001 review of strontium’s mode of action have summarised the efficacy of this mineral in skeletal health.

The result? There is now clear evidence that stable strontium has many effects on bone metabolism at a tissue and a cellular level. And these effects are due to three modes of action…

  1. Strontium stimulates bone formation
  2. It inhibits bone resorption, or prevents bone loss
  3. It increases bone mineral density and helps prevent fractures.



The strontium in health supplements usually comes bound to one of two salt molecules – namely a citrate or a ranelate. The Real Thing Bone Rev 2 is a pure strontium citrate supplement, but what does that mean for you and your bones?

  • FIRSTLY, strontium ranelate is a synthetic molecule while strontium citrate (like other stable strontium forms) is naturally occurring.

  • SECONDLY, although human bone mineralisation studies have so far focused on strontium ranelate, previous research with animals has used many different forms of stable strontium, all of which seem to be effective.

  • FINALLY, there’s little evidence that the ranelate part of the compound contributes to strontium ranelate’s effect on bone. In fact, even the small amount of ranelate that gets absorbed is quickly eliminated from the body without being metabolised.

The message: it seems it’s the strontium that counts, not the salt it’s attached to.


FACT: It’s not the ranelate or the citrate, but the strontium part of the molecule that has most or all of the bone-boosting effect. In vitro (in a petri dish) and in vivo (live cell) studies have shown that stable strontium forms – including strontium citrate – can increase bone mass and improve mechanical bone properties. That’s why this compound may play a valuable role in maintaining optimal bone health for you. 



  • Bones firm up and fill up with minerals while you’re growing. But only into the 20s. Then things start to reverse.

  • From age 35 bone is gradually weakened, demineralised and lost – even more so in women after menopause.

  • But it’s not just age, research shows that diet, exercise, environment, genetics, smoking, certain medications and exposure to sunlight (or the lack thereof, which leads to too little vitamin D) can all influence bone weakness or strength.

  • That’s where nutrient therapy comes in. It’s been shown to be central to the maintenance of optimal bone health – especially the bone-related nutrients like calcium, strontium, magnesium, vitamin D, phosphorous, fluoride, manganese, zinc, boron, copper and vitamin K.

  • Bone Revolution 1 and 2 help to improve levels of nutrients involved in healthy bone turnover. Simple. So they can help to prevent or minimise bone loss– due to age, bone-reducing medications like corticosteroids, or low bone-nutrient intake (as in lactose intolerance or life in dark, sunless parts of the world).



  • What we put in it. Nothing but natural strontium, mined from the earth, combined with pure citrate (or citric acid) from fresh citrus fruits. The result is a totally natural and stable strontium citrate salt.
  • What we don’t put in it. No colourants, flavourants or preservatives of any kind.
  • How it’s made. Bone Rev 2 is produced in ISO and HACCP approved facilities.




Studies have shown that 680mg per day of elemental strontium is beneficial for bone health. But it’s not just how much you take. How you take it counts too.

  • Adults should take 3 Bone Rev 2 tablets daily, at least two hours before or after food, other supplements or medication. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Not recommended for children or teens under the age of 20, as strontium can affect rapidly growing bones.
  • NOTE: For optimal bone health, it’s advised to take strontium with an additional calcium and vitamin D supplement, such as The Real Thing Bone Revolution 1 (if dietary intake is insufficient). Strontium should be taken with calcium, but not at the same time. Therefore take Bone Rev 1 and 2 at least four to six hours apart. And continue taking both as directed for at least six months. 
  • Supplementation should not replace a healthy, balanced diet. If you have a medical condition, please speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any supplement.



Do not take Bone Revolution 2 if you are...

  • Allergic or hypersensitive to strontium

Avoid taking Bone Rev 2 and speak to your doctor if you...

  • Are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Are under 20 years of age
  • Have reduced kidney function
  • Have a risk of blood clots, or thromboembolism


If you take more Bone Rev 2 than you should…

Well, you shouldn’t. As with any supplement, it’s not advised to take more than the recommended dose. If you do however, nausea, diarrhoea, headache, dermatitis and eczema may occur. In the event of overdose, consult your doctor or pharmacist. If neither is
available, seek help at your nearest hospital or poison control centre.


If you forget to take Bone Rev 2 for a day or more…

It’s no problem. Simply start again at the regular daily dose. In other words, don’t double up your doses to cover the days you forgot. And remember: you may not see optimal benefits if you don’t take Bone Rev 2 regularly.


If you stop taking Bone Rev 2…

The benefits and improvements you’ve seen may slowly start to decline if you discontinue the recommended dose on a regular basis.



  • Low doses of up to 680mg per day of stable strontium are well-tolerated. If side effects do occur they’re usually mild and temporary and commonly include nausea, diarrhoea, headache, dermatitis and eczema.
  • Uncommonly, venous thromboembolism may occur and rarely, serious and life-threatening hypersensitivity can be seen within three to six weeks of initiation.
  • Not all side effects reported for this supplement are included in the leaflet or on this website. Should your general health get worse while taking this supplement, please consult your doctor, pharmacist or other health care professional for advice.
