An amino acid-chelated trace mineral
Promotes carbohydrate metabolism
Patented mineral glycinate chelated form for optimum absorption and enhanced benefit
Swanson Vanadium is helpful for promoting healthy carbohydrate metabolism. Classified as a trace mineral because it is needed only in small amounts, each capsule contains 5 mg of chelated vanadium from Albion, the leaders in supplemental mineral chelates. For more information on Albion products, see www.albionminerals.com.
What Makes Chelated Mineral Glycinates So Superior? First we need to understand the chelation process. Chelation is the result of minerals becoming chemically bound to amino acids in a very specific manner. Chelation occurs naturally during the digestive process to facilitate transport of minerals across the intestinal wall so that they may be utilized throughout the body. Amino acids are not the only "chelators" available, but they are ideal for minerals. The body is very efficient at absorbing individual amino acids, and Albion has identified the amino acid glycine as the preferred molecule for creating organic chelated minerals. Glycine is readily identified and absorbed across the intestinal wall, and Albion's glycinate chelates are actually small enough to transport right into the cells themselves!
