Clinicians Chromium AA Chelate provides a quality high potency form of the essential trace mineral Chromium.
Chromium is an essential trace element that plays an important role in the normal function of insulin and glucose metabolism. Interest in this trace mineral grew after studies showed that a deficiency in chromium was related to blood sugar imbalances. Chromium also appears to stimulate lipid metabolism and support healthy blood lipid and cholesterol levels in individuals with low body stores of this mineral. A deficiency may be caused by low dietary intakes, physical trauma, pregnancy and breast feeding, acute exercise and infection. Under normal conditions, the bodies requirement for chromium is quite low. Supplementation may however provide additional benefits such as metabolic and cardiovascular support. The absorption of chromium is naturally low and may be enhanced by taking Vitamin C alongside it. Chromium is found in low levels in most foods. Brewers yeast, meats, whole grain products, fruits, vegetables and spices are all natural sources of chromium.
