Douglas Chromium-GTF 100 VCapsRegular price $23.00 Save $-23.00
Douglas Chromium-GTF is a trace element supplement that contains chromium bound to nicotinic acid (chromium poly-nicotinate). Each capsule provides 200 mcg of chromium in its non-toxic trivalent form. Once in the body, the biologically active form of chromium is also referred to as glucose tolerance factor (GTF) as chromium provides support for healthy glucose metabolism. Although the exact mechanism is unknown, it is suggested that chromium interacts with the amino acids glycine, cysteine, glutamate, and aspartic acid in the form of low-molecular-weight chromium (LMWCr) binding substance, which then attaches to insulin receptors in the body when there is a spike of insulin in the body.
Chromium is generally accepted as an essential trace mineral that potentiates insulin action and thus influences carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Chromium absorption is typically less than 2% efficient and variable depending on its form. Studies have demonstrated that chromium from Chromium-GTF has a higher bioavailability than other chromium compounds, such as chromium picolinate or chloride. Furthermore, tissues retained anywhere from 2 to 8 times more chromium from Chromium-GTF compared to other sources.

Chromium is an essential trace mineral needed by the body for a number of vital biological functions, the most well-known being its role in blood sugar management. This is based on its ability to unlock the “cell door” to the hormone insulin, allowing it to enter the cells. Multiple double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have been carried out, mainly on type II diabetics, showing marked improvements in blood glucose levels. However even those who do not suffer from diabetes have found that chromium can help with weight loss and reducing food cravings, due to its ability to help keep blood sugar levels stable.
Since insulin resistance and high blood sugar appear to be risk factors for heart disease and metabolic syndrome, higher chromium intake can also help reduce the risk of developing these conditions.

New Roots Chromium Picolinate 100 VCapsRegular price $16.99 Save $-16.99
Chromium picolinate is a patented version of the trace element chromium, chemically bound to picolinic acid.
The body produces picolinic acid as a mechanism to improve the assimilation of trace minerals at the cellular level. Fully reacted chromium in picolinate form saves the body a metabolic step and improves the rate of absorption. Studies have shown chromium picolinate supplementation to improve metabolism as well as to lower blood serum cholesterol and glucose levels. Chromium enhances the ability of insulin to lower serum glucose levels; this has a favourable effect on the development of coronary heart disease, as diabetes is a major risk factor.
Athletes that train extensively should also consider supplementation, as excessive excretion through perspiration can lead to a deficiency.
