What to Look For in Dietary Minerals

image via Wikipedia

When buying minerals, look for chelated on the label. Only 10 percent of average minerals will be assimilated by the body, but when mixed with amino acids in chelation, the assimilation is three to five times more effective.

Hydrolyzed stands for water dispersible. Hydrolyzed protein-chelated signifies the supplement is in its most easily assimilated form.

Predigested protein is protein that's already been broken down and can go straight to the bloodstream.

Cold pressed is crucial to look for when buying oil or oil capsules. It means vitamins have not been ruined by heat and that the oil, taken out by cold-pressed methods, continues to be polyunsaturated.
