Fully-Reacted Chelated Mineral
Calcium bisglycinate, a chelated form of calcium, has been shown to have improved absorption and bioavailability compared to other forms of calcium. ‡
Calcium bisglycinate and calcium glycinate refer to the same mineral. Calcium bisglycinate is the chemical or scientific name of this form of calcium.
The calcium bisglycinate produced by Cypress Ingredients is fully chelated, which increases its bioavailability in the body. Fully reacted, chelated minerals remain covalently bonded and can be properly absorbed and used by the body. Additionally, they do not dissociate in the stomach’s acidic environment. ‡
Fully reacted mineral ingredients, such as our calcium bisglycinate are up to four times more bioavailable, with less inhibition by other minerals, and have fewer potential side effects. ‡
WHAT IS Calcium Bisglycinate?
Calcium bisglycinate is chelated or bound to two glycine molecules. The chelation process improves the absorption and bioavailability of the mineral. ‡
Because calcium bisglycinate is more readily absorbed and easier on the digestive system than other forms of calcium, it is a popular ingredient in supplements. 1 ‡
