Mineral Chelation

The term chelate (pronounced key-late) is derived from the Greek word chele (“χηλή “) meaning “claw-like”, and describes the structure of a certain mineral form in which a mineral molecule is held at more than one point of attachment and a ring structure is formed.

What Are The Benefits of Chelates?

Appropriate intake levels of certain nutritive minerals have been proven to be required to maintain optimal human health.

Organic mineral amino acid chelates have been scientifically proven to be more easily absorbed into the human body and to cause less gastric upset than inorganic minerals. Part of the reason for this higher tolerance and bioavailability is that chelated minerals are absorbed intact and break apart in the intestinal cell for transport.
