Your body breaks down the food that you eat to release energy. Glucose is one of the most readily available sources of energy‚ and is quickly released into your blood stream shortly after you eat sugary foods. To prevent the glucose levels in your blood from becoming dangerously high‚ your body produces insulin to convert the glucose into compounds that can be stored.
Insulin works in harmony with glucose tolerance factor (GTF)‚ a natural compound that contains chromium. People who have chromium deficiency may not produce enough GTF‚ lowering their tolerance of glucose. Mental confusion and an inability to focus is another symptom of a chromium deficiency. Chromium picolinate may also improve your mood.
Eating a diet that’s very high in sugar can also lead to high levels of chromium being excreted in your urine‚ instead of staying in your body where it’s needed. Good dietary sources of chromium include broccoli‚ eggs‚ and fish. It can be difficult to obtain a healthy amount of chromium in your daily diet‚ because foods such as whole grains‚ nuts‚ and green beans‚ only provide very small amounts of it. That’s why you may want to consider taking a supplement.
Chromium (Picolinate) by Pure Encapsulations is a good source of chromium‚ which is even more necessary than usual during pregnancy or illness. In addition to chromium‚ these capsules also contain vegetable fiber to aid the digestion and absorption of the active ingredient. This supplement is free from common allergens like lactose and soy.
