What are chelated minerals?
Chelated, basically means “firmly attached,” usually to an amino acid or other organic component so that the two do not disassociate in the digestive system. Chelation is implemented because sometimes it is able to enhance mineral absorption. However absorption is not always improved by chelation, so other factors must also be taken into account when formulating products. We also look at which forms are better tolerated, more compatible, and more bioavailable.
