Chromium GTF (Wholefood)

  • Information
  • Ingredients / Directions
  • Further Reading
  • Health Uses
 
Chromium is used for blood sugar stabilisation, weight control and to help keep arteries clear. We consider it an essential supplement in cases of Diabetes, Obesity and Arterial Congestion. Chromium deficiency in soil is widespread, and levels of more than 20ug per day are rarely achieved from food consumption.
 
Chromium is the essential part of Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) and has a vital role to play in the following;
  • Carbohydrate metabolism
  • Insulin metabolism and balance
  • Enzyme activity related to the metabolism of glucose
  • Synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol
  • Transport of protein to where it's needed
  • Arterial Health
  • Blood sugar regulation
It may also help to regulate blood pressure and cholesterol, especially in those who consume a diet high in refined and processed foods.
 
Wholefood Chromium is made from a species of broccoli that has been hydroponically grown in a chromium-rich environment. As such, it is a whole food form of the mineral, which has high bioavailability.
 
Wholefood Chromium is in a whole food matrix, and hence demonstrates a high bioavailability and non-toxicity. We believe this is the only wholefood GTF chromium on the market.

If you have any of the above listed problems then supplemental chromium is sensible at between 100-200ug daily. Most people receive 20ug of chromium from their diet, which is well below the optimum intake.
 
Please note that there is often little relationship between RDA and optimum levels, and a lot of sickness can occur at levels above the RDA of any nutrient. Since wholefood chromium has high bioavailability it is better absorbed and assimilated. 100ug per day in this form, may be optimal, although 200ug could be taken for a few weeks. Experiment to find an individual optimum intake as individual needs vary.
 
A recent review of 15 studies looking at the usefulness of Chromium for Diabetes found that Chromium had significant benefits. A total of 1690 subjects received chromium at between 200-1000ug per day for periods ranging from one week to nine months. "The data indicate that chromium supplementation represents a uniquely efficacious modality for glycaemic control in subjects with diabetes, indeed, 13 of 15 clinical studies reported significant improvement in at least one outcome of glycaemic control.”
C. Leigh Broadhurst and Philip Domenico, Diabetes Technology and Therapeutics 2007
 
Six out of ten studies measuring fasting glucose levels showed a significant improvement of 15.3%, and postprandial glucose levels of 18.9 per cent. Fasting insulin levels, measured in four studies, improved by 29.8 per cent, while postprandial insulin improved by 15 per cent from baseline as a result of chromium supplementation. The authors note that people with type-2 diabetes may need higher doses than non-diabetics for a benefit to be observed. The supplement has a "compelling safety profile”, said the researchers, and is an inexpensive and efficacious way of improving diabetes control.C.
