    Matrix

    Hi,


    IMPROVED & INCREASED "JUMBO" EXTRA INGREDIENT MATRIX (12,244 MG)!

    What does "Matrix" mean here?

    Does it refer to "Bone Matrix"? (more unlikely). Can I replace it with "substance"?

    Re: Matrix

    I don't see how the ingredients in a food supplement can be "connected or arranged in a network" as in a matrix.

    Re: Matrix

    It's not well-worded, but I gather it's referring to the chemical or atomic molecular matrix.

    Their product supposedly has an improved chemical formula that allows more protein and other desirable nutrients in a smaller serving size.

    Re: Matrix

    It's an ad. It doesn't have to have a proper meaning. It has to sound good. It seems to simply mean the combination of ingredients. But "matrix of ingredients" probably sells more of the stuff.

    Re: Matrix

    I think it is similar to 'ingredient complex'.
