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.

  • Saved my marriage

    star

    I have been on these for just over 3 months & l can honestly say they saved my marriage. I had no energy, was irritable, had no sex drive & just was a horrible version of me, now l am happy, have heaps of energy, sex life is awesome & my husband is loving the new me. They only took a couple of weeks to start working & a full 2 cycles to feel the full effects. I have changed so many things since l started like my diet which is healthy, l go to the gym nearly everyday & my life is happier cause l am a happier person now. My kids have seen a big difference in me & l love the energy l have to spend with them. Best thing l have ever done for me & worth every cent. Thank you for giving me my life back.

  • Worthwhile investment

    star

    I started taking these about 2 months ago now and I can already see such a difference in myself. Previously, I had days where I was a nervous wreck and crying from anxiety from roller coaster hormones and snapping from something small. Took about a month to see differences but I noticed I'm more even in mood, swollen tender breasts have gone, sugar cravings decreasing, and generally feeling consistently better in my cycles since starting these. Highly reccomended. Give it a go!
