Binding Minerals and Trace Elements to PCA (Pidolic acid, Pyrrolidone carboxylic acid) creates an innovative and highly bioavailable molecule called Pidolate.

PCA is a natural and physiological derivative that is involved in numerous biological mechanisms. It is a key physiological intermediate within the body and is for example involved in the Krebs Cycle and also the ỿ-Glutamyl2 Cycle. PCA possesses a carboxyl function, which allows the formation of salts chiefly from minerals. The low molecular weight of the PCA residue allows a higher level of minerals to be obtained compared with other derivatives currently used such as gluconates or orotates.
