PROVEN MOST EFFECTIVE FORM OF CHROMIUM AVAILABLE!
Chromium is an essential trace mineral required for maintenance of proper sugar and fat metabolism. Chromium is present throughout the body, with the highest concentration being in the liver, kidney, spleen, bone, brain and muscle.
Studies show that there is a significant age-related decrease in chromium levels, which may play a part in the increased risk of diabetes and arteriosclerosis in older people. Poorly absorbed, only 2-10 percent of dietary chromium intake is absorbed by the body. Niacin bound, oxygen generated chromium polynicotinate is the most absorbed form of chromium available, mimicking the biological active form found in the body. It has been shown to reduce the amount of insulin required by diabetic patients, increase glucose metabolism, increase fat loss while sparing muscle (lean body mass), and lower serum cholesterol. A minimum dose of 200 mcg. daily is recommended.
CURB SUGAR CRAVINGS!
Dietary supplements containing chromium are gaining popularity among Americans, especially those seeking a weight-loss program.
Research suggests that chromium polynicotinate supplements may cause weight loss, reduce fat and increase muscle mass. Studies show that a daily supplement of 600-1000mcg. of chromium along with a moderate diet and exercise program, result in significant weight loss.
