Natural Factors Chromium Picolinate enhances the action of insulin, metabolizes glucose, and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels. As most North Americans are at risk of chromium deficiency, supplementing with easily absorbed chromium picolinate ensures adequate levels of chromium, maintains healthy blood sugar balance, and reduces food cravings.
- Improves blood sugar control
- Helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and fats
- Helps prevent chromium deficiency
- Helps reduce carbohydrate cravings
- May reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels
Chromium is an essential mineral for enhancing the action of insulin, metabolizing sugar (glucose), and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Although it is naturally present in food in trace amounts, the majority of North Americans do not get enough chromium in their diet and are at risk of gradually developing a deficiency. Elevated cortisol levels caused by stress can also deplete the body’s chromium. Chromium deficiency can lead to elevated levels of blood sugar and insulin.
Chromium supplements have been shown to improve blood sugar balance in people with glucose intolerance, and can reduce food cravings and improve appetite regulation. Chromium may also be useful in managing reactive hypoglycemia, a condition where blood sugar falls below normal after eating.
Inadequate chromium intake is linked to increased levels of low density (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides, and decreased levels of high density (good) cholesterol, factors that heighten the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Chromium picolinate is the form of chromium most easily absorbed by the body, which is why it is often used in clinical trials. Easily absorbed Natural Factors Chromium Picolinate is an effective way to obtain your daily requirement of this essential mineral.
