The term, chelated mineral, refers to the formation of a complex between a mineral and an amino acid. Evidence supports the importance of chelated minerals in the central nervous system (CNS), citing a beneficial psychotropic effect, although the exact mechanism is not fully understood. Chelated minerals are used orally as dietary mineral supplements (marketed to be more bioavailable than non-chelated minerals), for supporting normal growth, stabilizing bipolar disorder, building strong muscles and bones, and improving immune function and overall health.
