Advanced mineral nutrition! Essential mineral magnesium in chelate form for optimum absorption. What is Vitacost Chelated Magnesium - Albion® Magnesium Glycinate Chelate Buffered? Vitacost Chelated Magnesium - Albion® Magnesium Glycinate Chelate Buffered is a high quality chelated form of the essential mineral magnesium. Chelated minerals are minerals that have been chemically bound to another molecule (typically an amino acid) to form a complex. Chelation naturally occurs during digestion after stomach acid and enzymes break down protein into amino acids. Amino acids bind to minerals assisting their transport through the intestinal walls. Unfortunately the body is not efficient at producing chelated minerals. So Albion developed an exclusive technology that mimics the body’s natural chelation process producing readily absorbable organic chelated minerals in supplement form. Glycine an easily identified and efficiently absorbed amino acid is the chelator (binding agent) most commonly used in Albion formulations. Albion chelated minerals are:. Produced in laboratories under carefully controlled conditions utilizing an advanced patented chelation process. Nutritionally functional with an ultimate glycine-to-mineral molar ratio. Clinically researched and chemically validated with TRAACS (The Real Amino Acid Chelate System). Guaranteed pure and stable.

"This isn't necessarily a bad product, but you should know what you're getting. The description makes it sound like you are getting 133mg of magnesium chelate per capsule, when in fact it is "magnesium glycinate chelate buffered" -- "buffered" in this case indicating it's actually only 50% chelate (the rest is cheap magnesium oxide)
Definitely something to keep in mind if you're looking for chelate instead of cheap filler!"
"My digestive system is very sensitive to anything I ingest, so I am always looking for better, more "Body Friendly", supplements to take. Buffered supplements always catch my eye for a try. Now, Vitacost is offering Several Albion processed products and I am finding them to be of superior quality. Supplemental Magnesium is so important to my specific nutritional needs, my quest for the best Magnesium Supplement is over. And, so is my digestive upset! Thanks Vitacost for the best "Body Friendly" supplements."
"I take 3 of these twice a day and no loose stool; just the benefits of magnesium, which are many. I am also impressed with the extra ingredients, like the FOS and multi-enzyme complex! Excellent product for a great price. Can't beat Vitacost!!"
"I wanted to take a chelated magnesium as recommended in the book Your Bones (2013) whose recommendations I follow to improve bone health. The strength I want is 400 per day in a divided dosage. This product comes in a 133 mg per capsule, which allows me to take three to reach my 399 mg per day. The other thing I like about this product is that it has NO added calcium because I want to take my calcium citrate separate from the magnesium at a different time of the day and I want it to be the form of calcium that I choose and not something added into a supplement."
"I bought this magnesium supplement after reading that most Americans don't get enough of this mineral in their diet. Magnesium has a calming effect on me. It is also good for loosening tight or cramped muscles. I will continue to use it."
"This is not a whole food source of magnesium that the body was designed to ingest. But if you're going to choose non-whole food sources of nutrients this is one of the best in that category b/c Albion has proof of it's bioavailability. But it's still un-natural to the body. We were meant to eat whole foods not isolated nutrients."
