7. What is Chelation?

Chelation is a process by which mineral substances are changed into their digestible form. Common mineral supplements such as bone meal and dolomite are often not chelated and must first be acted upon in the digestive process to form chelates before they are of use to the body. The natural chelating process is not performed efficiently in many people, and because of this a good deal of the mineral supplements they take is of little use. For example, only 2 to 10 percent of inorganic iron taken into the body is actually absorbed, and, even with this small percentage, 50 percent is then eliminated. Thus, it is greatly advantageous to take minerals that have been chelated. Amino acid bound chelated mineral supplements provide three to ten times greater assimilation than the non-chelated ones, and are well worth the small additional cost.
