Vital Nutrients Chromium 200 mcg 90 caps is an essential mineral found in the body that has been shown to be important in carbohydrate metabolism. Chromium is a critical component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF). It increases the effectiveness of insulin, the hormone produced by the pancreas that aids in blood sugar regulation. Chromium allows insulin to bind to certain cell receptors to allow glucose to enter the cells, decreasing blood glucose levels. Chromium also stimulates the activity of enzymes involved in glucose metabolism and fatty acid synthesis, and competes with iron in the transport of protein. Chromium is a blood sugar regulator.
