What is chelated calcium?
Chelated calcium is a type of calcium supplement that has been chemically bound to an amino acid (or other organic compound). This process, known as chelation, enhances the absorption and bioavailability of the mineral.
How does chelated calcium differ from regular calcium supplements?
The main difference is how our body absorbs these two types of calcium. Regular calcium may not be fully absorbed by everyone’s body, while chelated calcium's unique chemical structure allows for better absorption and utilization by the body.
