- Supports Healthy Glucose Metabolism*
- Three Chromium Forms
- Vegetarian Formula
Chromium Picolinate has been used in studies which show that this form of the mineral is useful to support healthy glucose, insulin and blood fat levels, with a dose-related effect. It is also related to increasing lean body tissue according to a study done at Duke University. This form of chromium has been featured in many studies, some supported by the USDA.
Chromium Chelavite and ChromeMate are patented compounds known as chelates, which are predigested and easily absorbed. These particular chelates have chromium bonded to a niacin complex. Niacin-bound chromium complexes significantly increase the bioavailability and biological activity of chromium. Some studies have shown that niacin-complexed chromium is absorbed and retained 300% greater than chromium picolinate, supporting body weight reduction, increasing lean body mass and aiding in healthy insulin function in the body.*
True Cinnamon is one form of the common spice (Cinnaminum verum bark). Experiments conducted by the USDA have shown that it may lower blood sugar by mimicking insulin, activating insulin receptors and working with insulin in the cells to reduce blood sugar by up to 20%.* Cinnamon has some antioxidant benefits, whereas insulin is oxygen-reactive.*
