Vitacost Complexed Selenium - Albion® Selenium Glycinate Complex Description
Advanced mineral nutrition! Essential trace mineral in chelate form for optimum absorption.
What is Complexed Selenium - Albion® Selenium Glycinate Complex?
Complexed Selenium - Albion® Selenium Glycinate Complex is a high-quality form of the trace mineral selenium.
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
