Vitacost Chelated Multimineral - Albion® Chelates and Complexes Description
Advanced mineral nutrition! Twelve-mineral blend formulated with exclusive chelation process for optimum absorption.
What is Vitacost Chelated Multi-Mineral - Albion® Glycinate Chelates and Complexes?
Vitacost Chelated Multi-Mineral - Albion® Glycinate Chelates and Complexes features a blend of 12 highly bioavailable chelated minerals plus a proprietary blend of ginger root, black pepper (Piper nigrum), digestive enzymes and prebiotics to further enhance absorption.
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
