What is the difference between metallic and chelated (organic) mineral?
Chelated or organic minerals are a more absorbable form of mineral than metallic. Just because a product is sold as a chelated (organic) mineral does not mean that all of the minerals in the product are chelated. If one ingredient in a vitamin and mineral product is chelated the final product can be marketed and labeled as chelated (organic). As a consumer you need to be aware of exactly what ingredients are indeed chelated or organic.
