Albion is a science and research based company. At the cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars, Albion has conducted clinical studies that prove its raw material selection and manufacturing process is 100% proven to form effective, absorbable chelates. Given the above possibilities in process variation, do you think another company could use someone else’s clinical studies and research to prove their process and their product? Can they further use those clinical studies to prove their product is fully reacted or even if an effective chelation process has taken place? Of course not.
It is to the advantage of some industry manufactures to genericize the word mineral “chelate”. It gives consumers a false understanding of what a “chelate” is and implies there is no difference between companies claiming to offer fully reacted chelates.
Through precise manufacturing processes, carefully controlled conditions and carefully monitored state-of-the-art facilities, a 100% proven, fully reacted mineral chelate can be created. This process is unique not only for the type of manufacturing process but for each specific nutritional mineral being chelated. This is why Albion has acquired over 100 patents to date on chelation-related manufacturing processes. Albion is so confident its chelated products are the highest quality we stand behind them right to your shelf.
