Calcium, Magnesium, Iron: What does the body assimilate?

Human body cannot do without vital minerals; the lack of a certain mineral may destroy the balance of all others. They are not generated by the body, but are received from the outside with mineral water and food.

It is possible to replenish minerals by taking dietary supplements. However, a problem arises with assimilation of minerals, since minerals represent inorganic forms, and human bodies are organic.

The intake of regular minerals may adversely affect human health. Therefore, it is better to select such mineral forms which are assimilable by the organism.

The most digestible form of minerals is the chelated form assuming combination of minerals and amino-acids (organics and nonorganics). Chelates do not require additional biochemical transformations, since they are already prepared to their assimilation by the body.

Various clinical and scientific studies have proved the advantages of chelated forms if compared to regular ones: high degree of biological availability. Chelates can be 90–98% assimilated, while others are only 5–40% assimilated.

Evalar has developed a line of amino-acid chelated minerals providing for maximal absorption of calcium, magnesium and iron. Easily digestible chelate complexes Chelated Calcium, Chelated Magnesium, Chelated Iron are recommended to adults and children aged 14 up. Besides, they can be administered to pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers.
