The biologically active form of Chromium Supplements participate in Glucose metabolism by enhancing the effects of Insulin. Insulin is a peptide hormone produced in the beta-cells of the pancreas. It is central to carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Insulin causes the cells in the skeletal muscles, liver, and fat tissue to absorb glucose from the bloodstream.*
VITAL TO GLUCOSE METABOLISM
Insulin plays an important role in weight management, both in controlling body fat and building muscle tissue. Insulin resistance has been linked to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. Chromium Picolinate aids the body’s metabolism by helping insulin function efficiently.*
