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.

  • A girl's best friend...

    star

    This product is a game changer. After years of ever worsening PMS symptoms - bloat, cravings, acne, terrible mood swings, feeling psycho for 3 weeks out of 4 - I finally broke and decided to try supplements, I didn't like the person I was becoming. After reading through these reviews I decide to try the Go Hormone Harmony. Ah-may-zing!!! After only one month I feel like a new woman! Only one day of psycho irrationality, shorter, a less painful period, less acne and bloat, and just generally feeling all around happier. My new best friend. I am recommending this product to all my girlfriends and will be giving it to my daughters once they are older. Thank you Healthpost!!

    I started taking these about 5wks ago and have definitely noticed a huge difference in sweetness of food.
    Biscuits & cakes which are my evening downfall, have gone by the by as they taste too sweet. When I have tried, most of it goes in the bin as I don't want the sweetness.
    I know different products suit different people, but they are not expensive give them a try, as they have definitely helped me get out of my evening food picking.

    This product is amazing! I'm in my late thirties, and have suffered hormonal problems for the last decade. I went to the doctor a couple of times thinking I may be able to get to the bottom of what was going on with me, but tests came up with nothing. My mood swings only got worse, so I tried this product and have been taking it for about a year now and LOVE it! It has made such a difference - I'm back to the happy person that was hiding behind the hormones! I stopped taking it for a couple of weeks and found my moods went back downhill, so went back on 30 Plus and have never looked back. My family are very grateful, but mostly I am so happy to be back to my happy self!
