What happens if i'm mineral deficient?
In short, a deficiency in these five minerals can lead to suboptimal testosterone levels, disappointing results in training, fatigue, and difficulty losing body fat or staying lean.*
ElitePro™ minerals contain the highest quality, most easily absorbed forms of these minerals, ensuring that your body has what it needs for high-level performance.*
What makes ElitePro minerals "elite"?
NFL players are required to supplement with vitamins and minerals. Tim Ziegenfuss, a PhD in Exercise Science and Sports Nutrition, works with a lot of these players, providing them with dietary protocols. But a few years ago he had a problem. He knew that average store-bought mineral supplements weren't designed for the elite athlete's needs, and he knew that most of these formulations just didn't work well.
Dr. Ziegenfuss asked Biotest to come up with a designer formulation using only the highest quality minerals that the body can actually absorb and put to work.
Biotest utilized the ultimate mineral research group and manufacturer, Albion Labs, to make the world's best mineral supplement. Albion's patented technology produces totally reacted amino-acid chelates. This means that each mineral atom is double-bonded to an amino-acid molecule, thereby making an amino-acid chelate that's not only small enough to pass through the intestine, but small enough to be transported right into the cell itself.*
Mineral formulations that aren't chelated are problematic. At worst, they're not absorbed. At best, they're nominally utilized because the majority of the foods we eat have chemicals in them that inhibit their absorption. But because of the chelation process, it doesn't matter if you take ElitePro Minerals with food or without food. However, we recommend taking the formulation at night because magnesium has a mild sleep-inducing effect.
How do you know your minerals are fully chelated?
The amino-acid chelates used in ElitePro Minerals have been tested by the following methods:*
- X-Ray Diffraction
- Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometry
- Infrared Spectrometry
- Fourier-Transformed Infrared Spectrometry
