Adaptogen Research Chelated Minerals

Bisglycinate Chelates

Extensive clinical research and laboratory studies have shown that the amino acid glycine is the ideal size and type of ligand.[1] Glycine is an amino acid the human body produces naturally as a building block for larger protein chains.

A 2:1 ratio of glycine-to-mineral is the most nutritionally beneficial mineral chelate form, known as a mineral bisglycinate chelate.

There are three factors that make a bisglycinate chelate uniquely more biologically effective: 

1) the double ligand ratio protects the mineral as it passes through the stomach’s digestive process, 

2) the combined molecule is less than 500 Daltons in size, which is small enough to be absorbed by protein receptors in the intestinal tract intact. The mineral and ligand are then separated by metabolic processes and used by the body, and 

3) the molecule is neutral in charge, keeping it from interacting with food and drug content during digestion.

Adaptogen Research offers supplements with Chelated Minerals.  Chelated Minerals are well tolerated and very well absorbed.

Zinc Plus - this mineral may enhance immune function, stabilize blood sugar levels, and help keep your skin, eyes, and heart healthy.
Iron Chelate - crucial for maintaining healthy blood and delivering oxygen to tissues throughout the body. It is essential for proper energy levels, a healthy pregnancy, connective tissue integrity, cardiovascular health, normal cognitive development, and a strong immune system.
Mineral Support - ideal for use when mineral replenishment is desired.
Magnesium Buffered Chelate - one of the best absorbed forms of magnesium.
