Chromium in the Glucose Tolerance Factor: The Natural, Well-Absorbed Probiotic-Extracted Form
Glucose tolerance factor, or GTF, is a compound containing chromium, nicotinic acid, glycine, glutamine, and a sulfur-containing amino acid. Chromium GTF potentiates the action of insulin, regulating glucose and lipid metabolism (Gropper, 2009).
Probiotic yeast-bound chromium contains naturally-occurring GTF, in addition to 100% organically-bound chromium. Chromium GTF provides the twin benefits of higher chromium absorption and pre-formed GTF.
Chromium has been shown to improve profiles of serum glucose, insulin, and HbA1C by increasing insulin sensitivity (Anderson et al., 1997). Chromium has also been shown to be effective in lowering serum triglycerides and cholesterol (Gropper, 2009). Chromium supplementation can alleviate the symptoms of low blood sugar such as sudden weakness, irritability, confusion, and sugar cravings (Clausen, 1988).
We recommend supplementing with a combination of either a Multivitamin or B-complex and usually also extra magnesium, should other symptoms indicate deficiencies.
1 tablet daily, or as directed by the healthcare practitioner.
Adults with blood sugar problems and/or a chromium deficiency.
