Water-Miscible Vitamins A, D and E (WM): We utilize dry, water-mixable forms of vitamins A, D and E to further enhance absorption. That means these nutrients do not have to be ingested with fat to ensure absorption. In contrast to fat-soluble vitamins, as you can find them in many other products on the market.
Chelated minerals - Mineral-Chelation means "attaching to". By chelating our minerals to an amino acid (the building block of protein), we have increased the likelihood that these minerals will be absorbed in a low-acid environment.
