Chromium Info

Chromium is an essential trace mineral important for maintaining blood sugar levels within the normal range. It is a central component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) molecule, a hormone-like compound that enhances insulin activity in moving glucose from the blood into cells. Because tissue sensitivity to insulin is increased, less insulin is needed, leading to reduced fat deposits.

Chromium is also needed for several liver functions including fatty acid, lecithin, cholesterol and lipoprotein metabolism.

Vitamin C and niacin (vitamin B3) both increase dietary chromium absorption, which is stored in the liver, spleen, soft tissue and bones of the body. Unfortunately, modern food processing methods destroy much of the chromium content of food. The typical modern diet, high in refined foods with added sugar, creates a chromium deficiency.

Chromium Benefits

Chromium supplements may benefit people who consume a high sugar diet, which leads to increased urinary excretion of chromium. Other factors that can reduce chromium stores are infection, strong exercise, stress, pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Specific benefits of chromium include maintaining balanced blood sugar levels, controlling glucose and fatty acid metabolism, improving energy, managing food cravings and reducing the need for insulin (leading to improved arterial health).

People with diabetes types I and II, hypoglycaemia, sugar cravings, obesity, low energy or high cholesterol may benefit from taking a chromium supplement.

Chromium Side Effects

Safe when used as directed. Consult your health practitioner before taking if you are diabetic, hypoglycaemic, on medication, pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Amazing life saving product !

    I was getting constant migraines and was generally very very moody. It was really starting to affect my everyday life so I went to the doctor who wasn't really that helpful at all and just prescribed some pills to take when the migraines came on (never mind the very bad side affects I had been advised on taking the pills). She did suggest however that my headaches could be due to hormones. My Mum was told the same thing when she was my age so it was pretty much a given that that was the cause. I've always been one to look into a more natural approach rather than prescribed medication so I looked into the 30 plus and started taking them (as recommended by a few women) twice a day. They have completely changed my life ! I have gone from having a migraine maybe twice a week to maybe one in the past two months. And my moods have completely changed I am more balanced and definitely more tolerable :-) At the moment I take these twice a day without fail as if I don't I really notice the difference !
    I can't rate this product highly enough. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

  • completely changed my life!

    Incredible! was on just vitex, which was helping but switched to this and have had my first pain free and moody free cycle in years! Added bonus is my skin has cleared up too, which was frustrating being 40ish with pimples!!! I would highly recommend you try it if you are suffering from PMT or painful periods!
