As an essential mineral‚ chromium works to support heart health and the metabolism. Perhaps most importantly‚ it supports a healthy metabolism--especially the metabolism of the glucose (sugars and carbohydrates) and lipids (fats) you consume. This may promote healthy body composition (with sufficient lean muscle mass and appropriate levels of body fat)‚ even assisting you in maintaining a healthy weight when combined with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Chromium is found in a wide variety of foods‚ but usually in tiny amounts; biologically active chromium is most prevalent in foods such as wheat germ‚ Brewer's yeast‚ and liver‚ which you may not be eating enough of on a regular basis. Factors such as heavy physical activity‚ stress‚ or a diet consisting mostly of processed and fast food may contribute to a mild chromium deficiency. Fortunately‚ a convenient supplement like ChromeMate® GTF 200 by Pure Encapsulations can help you maintain sufficient levels‚ while also supporting Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) activity. GTF activity is thought to decline with age.
Every capsule of ChromeMate GTF 200 contains 200 micrograms of chromium polynicotinate‚ which combines chromium with nicotinic acid. Nicotinic acid is also known as vitamin B3 or niacin; this B complex vitamin makes chromium more bioavailable‚ since chromium polynicotinate is almost chemically identical to the type found naturally in foods. Meanwhile‚ niacin itself may help the body convert food into the fuel that provides energy for exercise and other activities on a daily basis.
Take one to three capsules per day‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' ChromeMate® GTF 200 should last from two to six months.
