Vitacost Chelated Zinc - Albion(R) Zinc Glycinate Chelate Description

Advanced mineral nutrition! Essential mineral zinc in chelate form for optimum absorption.

What is Vitacost Chelated Zinc - Albion® Zinc Glycinate Chelate?

Vitacost Chelated Zinc - Albion® Zinc Glycinate Chelate is a high quality chelated form of the essential mineral zinc.

Chelated minerals are minerals that have been chemically bound to another molecule (typically an amino acid) to form a complex. Chelation naturally occurs during digestion, after stomach acid and enzymes break down protein into amino acids. Amino acids bind to minerals, assisting their transport through the intestinal walls.


Unfortunately, the body is not efficient at producing chelated minerals. So, Albion developed an exclusive technology that mimics the body’s natural chelation process, producing readily absorbable organic chelated minerals in supplement form. Glycine, an easily identified and efficiently absorbed amino acid, is the chelator (binding agent) most commonly used in Albion formulations.


Albion chelated minerals are:

  • Produced in laboratories under carefully controlled conditions, utilizing an advanced, patented chelation process
  • Nutritionally functional with an ultimate glycine-to-mineral molar ratio
  • Clinically researched and chemically validated with TRAACS (The Real Amino Acid Chelate System)
  • Guaranteed pure and stable

High quality This form of zinc I absorb exceptionally well. I believe the Albion chelate which this product contains is the most highly absorbable form of zinc. August 13, 2013
Best quality and bioavailability Awesome Albion quality product which is the best there exists. Other chelates are just imitators but this products is true chelate. Besides it contains black pepper and digestive enzymes which improve bioavailability even further. I highly recommend the product to any endurance athletes to replenish zinc due to losses through perspiration. July 28, 2013
Favorite Zinc It's incredibly hard to find a good Zinc supplement, I've been searching for one for years! This one is reliable and not overpowering (won't cause a problem with copper lowering too much). You can even open the capsule to take out a little. I do that to try & fool the body into thinking it's more natural, and to offset other minerals (copper). I don't take copper personally as it's known to promote depression and tends to accumulate though it needs to be considered for each individual body type. Also like to take ZMA at night to promote sleep. Zinc tends to be lower in men. June 5, 2013
Zinc.... I don't know how to tell if it's working, but Vitacost great price is why I bought them here. March 24, 2012
