Bluebonnet Nutrition’s Albion™ Chelated Calcium Magnesium Caplets provide amino acid chelates including calcium bisglycinate and magnesium glycinate. Bluebonnet Nutrition's Chelated Calcium Magnesium is available in easy-to-swallow caplets for maximum assimilation and absorption.
Calcium (macromineral) is the most abundant mineral in the body found primarily in the teeth and bones, supporting their maintenance and growth by making them dense and strong. A small amount of calcium is present in blood plasma (1%) and other body fluids, where it influences muscle contraction, nutrient passage through cells, nerve transmission and blood clotting. Dietary sources high in calcium include milk, cheese, fortified cereals and green leafy vegetables.
Magnesium (macromineral) helps maintain muscles, nerves, bones, and teeth and is essential for carbohydrate and protein metabolism, cell reproduction, and smooth muscle action, including heart muscle tone. Magnesium is required for cellular metabolism and energy production. It also facilitates absorption of calcium and potassium and the processing of vitamin D. Dietary sources high in magnesium include milk, cheese, yogurt, green leafy vegetables, grains, apples, bananas and wheat bran.
Albion® Laboratories has developed a process that produces a stable, nutritionally functional mineral chelate, which provides reliable and effective mineral nutrition. Albion’s patented technology replicates the body’s natural chelation process, essentially turning inorganic minerals into small, highly bioavailable organic molecules (non-ionized). This process ensures that the mineral will remain stable throughout digestion and ultimately result in maximum absorption.
Mineral chelates (pronounced KEY-lates) are minerals bound to special “carriers” like amino acids and are particularly effective in propelling nutrients into the blood stream. Few nutritional substances cross the intestinal wall as quickly and easily as amino acids, thanks to their unique active transport mechanism of absorption. By linking the two, the amino acid is able to transport the mineral across the intestinal lining into the body, so it can be put to use. However, to be transported intact, the mineral must have a stable bond to the amino acid. Simply mixing minerals with amino acids – a basic ionic and hydrogen bond – will not produce a stable product. Mineral “chelates” created in this manner often lose their integrity during digestion and compromise the nutrient’s availability.
