Understanding Albion chelated minerals
Compounds are made up of two or more elements and ‘chelation’ describes how these elements are bonded together. In their natural state, minerals are known as ‘inorganic elements,’ which means they are not biological in origin. The human body cannot use inorganic minerals directly. It must first convert them to an organic or biological form. During the digestive process, when an inorganic mineral is presented, this conversion process starts to work, chemically bonding the inorganic molecule to an organic molecule. This process is called chelation and the end product is referred to as a chelate. Hence, this chelate becomes an organic compound that can now be absorbed and used by the body.

This product is iron-free and utilizes the finest chelated minerals from Albion Advanced Nutrition for optimal absorption.
Mineral Support iron-free formula contains a comprehensive array of minerals which the body needs in order to sustain life and work properly. The body uses minerals for a wide range of functions — including building strong bones and teeth, making hormones, participating in the conversion of food into energy, transmitting nerve impulses, and helping muscles to contract and relax. Since magnesium is more difficult to obtain in the daily diet, a 1:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium was chosen for this formula.

“Minerals are the basic spark-plugs in the chemistry of life, on which the exchanges of energy in the combustion of foods and the building of living tissues depend.” - Dr. Henry Schroeder, a leading authority on trace elements
To compensate for this, Mineral Support contains the finest chelated minerals from Albion Advanced Nutrition – the leader in chelate technology – for optimal absorption and utilization.
Albion uses patented technology to create an organic molecule already in a form the body can assimilate. These molecules are mineral amino acid chelates, minerals bonded to amino acids (i.e., calcium malate, zinc glycinate, etc.). This chelated organic form substantially increases the probability that you will absorb the mineral for its use and benefits. True chelates are not only better absorbed, but they are better retained by the body.
Unfortunately, many situations can negatively impact the efficiency of our body’s natural chelation process, such as interference from dietary fiber and phytates, a non-ideal pH, or certain medications, any of which can cause minerals to pass through unabsorbed. Thus, in reality it can be very difficult to get minerals from food or non-chelated supplements to keep you at optimum health.
