In small amounts, chromium is essential for metabolic processes that regulate blood sugar, and help insulin transport glucose into cells, where it can be used for energy. Chromium maintains stable blood sugar levels through proper insulin utilization and therefore helps maintain normal metabolism and proper weight.
As it enhances the action of insulin, chromium is necessary for storage of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. It is needed for energy production and is also vital in the synthesis of cholesterol, fats, and proteins. Inadequate intake of chromium has been linked to glucose intolerance.
Vanadium has been shown to have the ability to improve insulin utilization, resulting in improved glucose tolerance. Natural Factors Chromium &Vanadium supplies two essential minerals for healthy glucose metabolism. It helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and fats, and is a factor in the maintenance of good health. These minerals are chelated to help increase absorption and are highly suitable for those with digestive disturbances.
