Reacted Chromium includes 200mcg per serving of chromium, ideally formulated using the superior chromium polynicotinate (niacin-bound) form for enhanced absorption and superior function. Chromium enhances insulin control, promotes healthy glucose metabolism, and supports appetite control.
Insulin resistance greatly increases your risk for many health conditions that can reduce your quality of life and decrease your life expectancy.
If you are experiencing insulin resistance, I have found Reacted Chromium to be an excellent supplement, when combined with a healthy diet and exercise to improve insulin receptor sensitivity. And as always, this is based on scientific evidence.
Here is the summary of one such review:
“Chromium is an essential mineral that appears to have a beneficial role in the regulation of insulin action and its effects on carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism. Chromium is an important factor in enhancing insulin activity. Studies show that people with type 2 diabetes have lower blood levels of chromium than those without the disease. Insulin resistance is the common denominator in a cluster of cardiovascular disease risk factors. One out of every five Americans has metabolic syndrome. It affects 40% of people in their 60s and 70s. Insulin resistance, with or without the presence of metabolic syndrome, significantly increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Insulin resistance is present in two serious health problems in women; polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and gestational diabetes. Several studies have now demonstrated that chromium supplements enhance the metabolic action of insulin and lower some of the risk factors for cardiovascular disease, particularly in overweight individuals. Chromium has been shown to reduce insulin resistance and to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Dietary chromium is poorly absorbed. Chromium levels decrease with age. Supplements containing 200-1,000 mcg chromium a day have been found to improve blood glucose control. Numerous animal studies and human clinical trials have demonstrated that chromium supplements are safe.” PMID:15208835
