MBi Nutraceuticals Bio-Chrome GTF 200mcg 100 Count
Get the power of renowned GTF Chromium from the inventors of the U.S. patented product. GTF or Glucose Tolerance Factor Chromium is considered to be the most absorbable and effective type of chromium available.
Chromium supplementation may improve glucose tolerance in diabetics. It is also used to treat hypoglycemia, cardiovascular disease, glaucoma, obesity, and osteoporosis.
IMPORTANCE OF GTF CHROMIUM
There is scientific evidence accumulating on the importance of GTF chromium in blood-sugar and blood-lipid metabolism. There may be health hazards relating to chromium deficiencies, including diabetes mellitus and ischemic heart disease. Postpartum and multiparous (having two or more offspring at one birth) women are at significant risk for chromium deficiency, as well as diabetic children and the aging. GTF may stimulate the production of HDL as well as facilitate the metabolism of fatty acids and cholesterol. Supplementation with GTF Chromium may be beneficial in hyperlipidemia and ischemic heart disease, as a nutritional support.
OTHER AREAS OF REPORTED BENEFITS FROM GTF SUPPLEMENTATION
These areas include an anabolic or tissue building effect in which the protein-sparing action of a given level of plasma glucose is greater with high GTF activity. GTF chromium may also aid in weight-loss by stimulating blood sugar and blood-lipid metabolism. GTF has a stimulatory effect of insulin on the hypothalamic satiety center in high doses, which might have a useful hunger suppressant action during calorie deficit dieting.
AS MANY AS 90% OF AMERICANS DON'T GET ENOUGH CHROMIUM
Consuming highly processed foods reduces dietary intake of chromium as the element is destroyed during the refining process. Factors that further reduce chromium absorption include elevated simple sugars, too much vigorous work or exercise, physical trauma, and infection. Symptoms of deficiency include: glucose intolerance, impaired growth, decreased longevity, brain disorders, and decreased fertility.
As a dietary supplement, take two to four tablets per day following meals or as directed by your health care professional.
