Chromium is a mineral essential to humans, but as many as 90 percent of American diets are low in it. Chromium is at the heart of a biologically active complex called Glucose Tolerance Factor or “GTF,” which is responsible for increasing the action of insulin in the body.
Insulin is a vital hormone responsible for transporting glucose inside cells and maintaining proper blood sugar and blood lipid (cholesterol) levels in the body. Chromium helps insulin metabolize fat, turn protein into muscle, and convert sugar into energy. In fact, chromium-activated insulin increases the amount of blood sugar available for energy production nearly 20-fold.
Dr. Walter Mertz, former director of the US Department of Agriculture’s Human Nutrition Research Center, established that GTF chromium consists of chromium bound to the B vitamin niacin. ChromeMate® is a unique form of oxygen-coordinated, niacin-bound chromium.
Protected by three US patents, four international patents, and other worldwide patents pending, ChromeMate® is the only niacin-bound chromium supplement with proven biological activity.
Studies have shown that ChromeMate® is 18 times more potent than other forms of niacin-bound chromium. In animal models used to evaluate bioavailability in humans, it is absorbed and retained more than 600 percent greater than chromium chloride and 300 percent greater than chromium picolinate.
Combined with exercise and a sensible diet, ChromeMate®:
- Plays a role in the release of energy from cells.
- Supports carbohydrate and protein metabolism.
- Maintains healthy blood sugar levels that are in a normal range.
Several studies have shown that chromium supplements may improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood glucose and elevated body fat. However, further studies are needed before concrete benefits can be established.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take one (1) capsule daily at mealtime, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.
