Understanding the Essential Importance of Chelated Minerals

By Steve Johnsen

Chelated Minerals are the most absorbable for the body to be able to utilize. Minerals are absolutely critical to maintaining good health. Approximately 75% of the people living in the Western World are not ingesting the right amount of Magnesium, approximately 68% are not ingesting enough Calcium, approximately 58% are not ingesting enough Iron, and approximately 40% are not ingesting enough Zinc. A deficiency in minerals can affect so many areas of the body in such serious ways, you really need to read this section. The imbalance or deficiencies in trace mineral nutrition can affect many areas of the body like the reproductive system, immune system, hormone production, vitamin production, blood production, as well as other critical areas of the body. The bones, the heart, the blood, and almost every other area of the body require these vital minerals. The sad fact is that our diets are not getting the job done.

Many times you will hear people say, "I can't take supplements because they just don't agree with me." Most minerals found in supplements are cheap and not what we would recommend for the body. They are not chelated minerals and therefore it is extremely difficult for the body to absorb and utilize these minerals after ingesting them. Many times they cause problems with the digestive tract and other systems of the body. What you might not know is that a chelated mineral acts differently within the body. A chelated mineral is a mineral that is bonded with amino acids or malates naturally found within the food in a stable form. Since 95% of amino acids are absorbed through the intestinal tract, it makes it very easy for high quality chelated minerals to be absorbed and utilized by the body. So, we found the highest grade and most stable form of chelated minerals and made them part of The Greatest Vitamin in the World! This patented chelation process allows the mineral to be absorbed intact through the intestinal wall, even through the acidic environment of digestion.3 To put it simply, you don't want to take minerals if they are not chelated because they will be hard to absorb and could cause irritation to the digestive system. The key reason for using patented chelated minerals is to increase the ability of the body to absorb and utilize these minerals as it increases the body's tolerance in handling their ingestion. Scientific research shows by using this amazing chelation process, minerals are absorbed more easily by the body.
