What Are True Chelates

For minerals to properly form coordinate covalent bonds with the amino groups of amino acids, they must be mixed in liquid solution. These bonds cannot form in a dry environment by simply mixing ingredients together in powdered form. True chelates need to be small enough in molecular weight to be absorbed by the body (not more than 800 daltons).

True chelates are absorbed better than mineral salts and are better retained in body tissue. Chelates are better tolerated than non-bound mineral salts. Since they are better tolerated and absorbed they are less likely to cause loose stools or other gastrointestinal discomfort. The ligands the minerals are chelated to are important as the chelated compound will remain chelated throughout the gut and into the bloodstream.

Mineral salts from non-true chelate's break apart far sooner, usually in the stomach, leaving the body with the extra compound to deal with and the mineral in ionic form. Ionic minerals can interfere with the absorption of other minerals such as iron and zinc whereas chelated minerals do not. Albion minerals are mainly chelated with the amino acid glycine due to its low molecular weight. Glycine is very safe, even in high doses. It helps to slow the degeneration of muscle tissue as it helps to synthesize creatine. Glycine is involved in energy production, formation of amino acids for the immune system, CNS function, liver detoxification, and prostate health.

Mineral Testing
  • Hair Mineral Analysis
    This section includes the option to do a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. The TMA is one of the most cost effective methods for testing a variety of mineral levels, ratios and toxic metals. While there are many methods for doing this, the TMA is the least expensive and non-invasive. Based on your analysis a personalized report and supplement program is provided.
  • Iodine Testing
    To test for the common problem of iodine deficiency and possible hypothyroid do the Iodine Test.
  • Toxic Metals Testing
    If you are concerned about toxic metals we recommend doing the Provoked Toxic Element Clearance Test.
