Chromium Plus 300 CAPS - 500 MCG
Chromium niacinate is the result of a chemical reaction that combines chromium chloride with nicotinic acid (niacin), for improved absorption. Chromium helps support normal insulin action by increasing glucose transporters on the outside of the cell membranes. Our unique formula combines a multi-mineral base for synergistic bioavailability and optimal absorption.
- Supports healthy glucose metabolism *
- Aids in managing sugar cravings *
- Promotes balanced lipid levels *
What is Chromium Plus?
Chromium is an essential mineral that is necessary for normal glucose and lipid homeostasis. Trivalent chromium, originally discovered in brewer’s yeast, is considered the biologically active form . Chromium chloride, chromium nicotinate, and chromium picolinate are commonly used formulations of trivalent chromium. Chromium niacinate is the result of a chemical reaction that combines chromium chloride with nicotinic acid (vitamin B-3/niacin), for improved absorption. Chromium helps support normal insulin action by increasing the abundance and activity of glucose transporters on the outside of cell membranes. Our unique formula also contains a multi-mineral base, including essential nutrients magnesium, zinc, copper, and manganese for synergistic bioavailability and optimal absorption.
How does Chromium Plus Work?
Severe chromium deficiency is known to cause reversible insulin resistance and diabetes . Chromium is thought to be a cofactor necessary for optimal insulin action, due to its relationship with glucose transport. Therefore, chromium supplementation may exert its potential benefits by improving insulin sensitivity, supporting a healthy glucose metabolism .
Chromium may also aid in the regulation of lipid metabolism. Chromium supplementation has been associated with benefits related to the stabilization of serum triglyceride levels, lower total, and LDL-cholesterol levels, and increased HDL-cholesterol levels . Niacin-bound chromium, in particular, has not only shown an ability to restore insulin function and metabolization of fat but has also been linked with increased efficiency of new muscle building from dietary protein and energy metabolism, thereby playing a role in appetite regulation and the facilitation of healthy weight maintenance .
What are the Suggested Uses for Chromium Plus?
- Supports healthy glucose metabolism by promoting normal insulin action. *
- Aids in managing sugar cravings and appetite. *
- Promotes balanced lipid levels and healthy metabolism of dietary energy. *
