GTF CHROMIUM Supplement
One of the things that I did when I was changing my diet and losing a lot of weight was to add GTF Chromium to my daily supplements.
Chromium is something that we all need in our diet, but unfortunately, it is usually greatly lacking given the way people eat today and given the poor soil that most of our produce is grown in.
CHROMIUM is an essential nutrient that provides nutritional support for normal, healthy insulin action and glucose utilization.
The Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) is a biological test of this ability.
Chromium is an essential mineral that your body needs but can't produce.
Chromium works with insulin to improve the transportation of glucose out of the blood and into the cell.
This function improves health in many ways, including 1. Decreasing blood sugar - Chromium may reduce the amount of sugar circulating in your blood, thereby decreasing your risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
2. Decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol) 3. Increasing the good HDL cholesterol
4. Decreasing blood pressure 5. Decreasing the risk of heart disease and stroke
6. Decreasing body fat - Chromium may improve your body's insulin sensitivity, helping to reduce body fat.
7. Increasing lean body mass
I would personally recommend taking 200 mcg per day.
I only recommend "GTF CHROMIUM" that is biologically active.
I DO NOT recommend Chromium Picolinate because it has not stood the test of time and has not been proven to be as effective as the GTF Chromium.
I would recommend that you first consult your physician or other health or nutritional professional before adding this to your diet.
