Chelates Zinc Albion Glycinate Chelate Zinc
What is Chelated Zinc - Albion® Zinc Glycinate Chelate? 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 What are the key benefits of Vitacost® Chelated Zinc - Albion® Zinc Glycinate Chelate?
