Chromium is a mineral required to enhance inulin activity, supporting blood sugar uptake into the cell and balancing blood sugar levels, in addition to inhibiting the "sweet tooth", assising with the management of sugar and carbohydrate cravings.
- Two Chromium Forms.
- Boost Carbohydrate Metabolism.
- Assists in the Uptake of Glucose into Cells.
- Supports Healthy Blood Glucose Levels.
- Manage Sugar Cravings.
Chromium is an important mineral that has a number of crucial roles in the human body. One of the most well researched uses is its support of glucose disposal. The pancreas plays an important role in managing our blood glucose or sugar levels, releasing insulin. Insulin binds to receptors on cells, like muscle cells, and trigger the uptake of glucose into that cell. In fact, research shows that chromium supplementation can decrease fasting blood sugar levels1.
However, not all cells have the same response, and those responses certainly aren't set for life. As we age, or with inactivity or increases in carbohydrate intake, the ability of insulin to lower our blood sugar level can reduce. This can contributes to conditions, such as type II diabetes and obesity. Herbs of Gold Chromium Max contains a massive clinical dose of this mineral, at 250mcg of elemental chromium per capsule.
Herbs of Gold Chromium Max has also been demonstrated to decrease LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotien B levels, compared to placebo2. This makes the mineral quite unique in its role for supporting the management of cardiovascular disease, obesity and type II diabetes. Chromium is also often used to reduce cravings for starch-rich foods, and sweets, making it a useful supplement for weight loss programs, as it also supports insulin signalling.
Herbs of Gold Chromium Max is a versatile product, providing a clinical dose of this mineral in a highly bioavailable form.
