Biotron demonstrates proof of mineral chelation.

In collaboration with the Canadian National Synchrotron (CLSI) research facility at the University of Saskatchewan, Biotron Laboratories has demonstrated conclusive evidence of mineral bonding in a heterogeneous mixture of individual amino acids and short chain peptides. While chelation has been shown previously using single, chemically purified amino acids, such evidence has been elusive for more complex compounds, given the lack of methodologies to probe mineral bonding in such a varied chemical environment that includes a broad spectrum of both essential and non-essential L-amino acids.

Biotron, working with scientists at the CLSI, developed a set of experiments, which compared bond lengths, conformations and bonding energies for several Biotron products (including iron and copper chelate as well as chromium complex) and unreacted physical blends of starting materials. The CLSI team was able to detect measured differences between the fully reacted materials and unreacted inorganic mineral blends. The results were summarized and published in Innovision, the CLSI news publication. For further information:
