Chromium is an essential nutrient that is depleted from foods by processing and refining and diets low in whole grain cereals may provide inadequate levels of this essential trace mineral. Chromium helps the body to use insulin and is therefore involved in the processes that maintain normal blood sugar levels.
The importance of this mineral has recently been officially recognised by it being given a Recommended Daily Amount (RDA), although at just 40mcg, this is below the level often recommended by Nutritionists.
We have selected the organic Glucose Tolerance Factor form of the mineral called chromium picolinate to help ensure maximum absorption and utilisation. Each tablet provides a full 200µg of chromium and our product is manufactured to GMP pharmaceutical standards.
Several of our multi vitamin and mineral formulas also provide 200mcg of chromium per daily dose and one of these may be a sensible choice for anyone who has a diet consisting largely of highly processed foods.
