Benefits of Chelated Minerals
Do you take a mineral supplement?
I hope you so, minerals are some of the most important nutrients that you can consume. In fact, minerals are vital for a healthy life. They are found in every cell of your body, which shows how important they are.
That being said, most people (especially in the United States) are deficient in key minerals such as magnesium and potassium. This is due to poor eating habits as well as the fact that the soil that our food is grown in is deficient in minerals (due to intensive farming techniques).
Combat this by taking a multi-mineral supplement.
When taking a multi-minerals supplement it is important to make sure you are taking a high quality product. Not all minerals are the same. Some supplements are made with cheap, low grade minerals.
Stay away from these.
Look for premium chelated minerals. You can read more about mineral chelates below.
What Are Chelated Minerals?
Chelated minerals are minerals that specially processed to be more readily absorbed. They are chemically bound to amino acids (known more simple as proteins). Doing this helps to increase the bio-absorption of the the mineral supplement.
Having an amino acid means that the mineral is “protected” as it navigates your digestive tract. The amino acids acts as a shield to protect the mineral from being broken down until it reaches your gut wall, where it can then be easily broken down and used.
This increases the bioavailability of the mineral.
When a nutrient is more bioavailable that means that your system can digest it more easily. Low-grade minerals are very difficult for your system to digest, which means you’ll get very little benefit from it. You have to take twice as much of a low grade mineral as you would a premium chelated mineral supplement.
Plus, you’d be making your gut work twice as hard.Pay the extra money and get a mineral supplement that you are actually going to be able to digest and utilize. Think of it as an investment in your daily health.
