Take a look at the ingredient label on your multivitamin bottle. Likely, it contains a variety of minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, and Selenium. You probably know that minerals are important to your overall health. But do you realize that minerals are every bit, if not more, critical to your well-being than vitamins? Your blood, bones, nervous system, cells, tissues, and immune system all rely on minerals to keep your body functioning and thriving.
In their natural inorganic form, many minerals are unusable or poorly absorbed by our bodies. Because minerals are inorganic elements, our body attempts to convert the mineral to an organic or biological compound, a process known as chelation (key-lay-shen). But this natural chelation process is often disturbed, meaning the minerals found in your daily supplement could be exiting your body without ever being absorbed and put to use. And because most of us simply can’t consume the recommended daily allowance of minerals and vitamins from the food we eat, we depend on supplements to fill the void.
That’s Where Albion Chelates (Key-lates) Come In.
Fortunately, science and patented technology can help by creating an organic molecule that’s in a form the body can assimilate. These special organic forms of mineral elements are known as mineral amino acid chelates. Albion’s pharmaceutical-grade chelates used in food and nutritional supplements provide complete organic mineral nutrition, giving our bodies the ultimate chance to absorb the minerals for our best biological advantage.
Our Science Makes all the Difference.
Long known as The Mineral People™, Albion is in the business of making very specific molecules backed by sound science and research. We’ve been making chelated minerals for more than 50 years, first to improve performance in animals, then to aid in crop production, and finally to help humans better absorb minerals to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Albion is renowned for its science and recognized as a world leader and innovator in mineral amino acid chelate nutrition. Years of extensive research, clinical analysis, third-party critiques and careful laboratory manufacturing enable Albion to produce a highly effective and fully reacted chelate. In fact, we are the only chelate manufacturer that can scientifically prove our molecular structure! By identifying a unique "fingerprint" for each molecule we develop, our customers know Albion minerals are what we say they are: true mineral amino acid chelates.
Albion is a family owned company that has been granted more than 100 patents in the field of mineral nutrition. Albion’s team of distinguished scientists includes published researchers who’ve addressed scientific congresses throughout the world. They have invented the Albion human nutrition
line of organic mineral products, which contains chelated macro minerals and trace minerals designed to provide optimal health, superior absorption, and quality.
Although Albion does not sell direct to consumers, top companies around the world incorporate Albion’s amino acid chelates in their own high quality product brands. These include food and fortified food manufacturers as well as vitamin/supplement makers. To find companies recognized for mineral excellence who offer a complete selection of Albion mineral products, look for the Albion Gold Medallion
on their labels.
