Why are Chelated Minerals a Better Form of Minerals?

Why are Chelated Minerals a Better Form of Minerals?Many of us may know that minerals are essential to health, and many of us even take a daily multivitamin or other supplement that contains minerals.

But did you know that with the typical minerals found in many supplements (such as oxides, sulfates, and carbonates), numerous factors can interfere with absorption? And that can mean that the minerals you’re taking may not be doing you much good?

That’s (one reason) why chelated minerals are better. Chelated minerals are minerals that are already in a form the human body can easily absorb—unlike typical minerals. Chelated minerals are already bound/”chelated” to an amino acid, which makes it much easier for your body to absorb and metabolize them for critical functions essential to your health.

Did you know that typical minerals can also compete with each other for absorption, as well as block the absorption of vitamins? Typical zinc can block the absorption of iron, calcium can block zinc, and iron can block calcium and vitamin C. Ordinary minerals can also accelerate the degradation of vitamin C, vitamin A, and B vitamins.

That’s (another reason) why chelated minerals are better. Thanks to their chelated form, they are ionically neutral and thus don’t block the absorption of each other or other nutrients, or degrade vitamins, like typical minerals do—ensuring that your body gets the most health benefits from all the nutrients you take.
