- Albion Chelated Copper is a high absorption trace mineral
- Readily identified and absorbed across the intestinal wall
- Patented mineral glycinate chelated form for optimum absorption
Meet the latest addition to our complete line of Albion chelated minerals, chelated copper. Like our other Albion chelates, our copper capsules feature Albion’s patented glycinate chelate form to further guarantee maximum assimilation.
What Makes Chelated Mineral Glycinates So Superior? First we need to understand the chelation process. Chelation is the result of minerals becoming chemically bound to amino acids in a very specific manner. Chelation occurs during the digestive process to facilitate transport of minerals across the intestinal wall so that they may be utilized throughout the body. Amino acids are not the only “chelators” available, but they are ideal for minerals. The body is very efficient at absorbing individual amino acids, and Albion has identified the amino acid glycine as the preferred molecule for creating organic chelated minerals. Glycine is readily identified and absorbed across the intestinal wall, and Albion’s glycinate chelates are actually small enough to transport right into the cells themselves!
