Innate GTF Chromium – 90 tablets




Product Description

Chromium, a trace mineral, is essential for fat and cholesterol metabolism. An important supplement for hypoglycemic and diabetic persons, as well as all sugar sensitive people. This is a biologically active form of Chromium. GTF Chromium, or Glucose Tolerance Factor Chromium, is the biologically active form of chromium in the body. Other than in the body, GTF chromium is found only in food. There have been many attempts to isolate or synthesize the GTF; none have been successful. It has been proposed that GTF chromium is a complex of chromium, nicotinic acid, and possible the amino acids glycine, cycteine, and glutamic acid. GTF chromium works closely with insulin to facilitate the uptake of glucose into cells.

In individuals with impaired glucose tolerance, such as those with diabetes, hypoglycemia and obesity, supplementation with GTF chromium, the bioactive form, is of paramount importance. Without GTF chromium, blood sugar levels may stay elevated because the action of insulin is blocked so that glucose is not transported into the cells. One study showed that this product benefited certain diabetics by improving blood glucose control, lowering serum lipids, and decreasing the risk of coronary heart disease. The utilization of GTF chromium from FoodStateTM is further enhanced by the inclusion of the mineral-rich foods rice bran, kelp and dulse.
