Chromium is an essential trace mineral required by the body in very small amounts. The biologically active form of chromium known as GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor) is a complex of chromium and the B-vitamin niacin. Several forms of chromium exist, but ChromeMate® (generically called chromium nicotinate, chromium polynicotinate or niacin-bound chromium) is the only patented niacin-bound chromium complex backed by significant scientific research. ChromeMate® closely resembles GTF and, therefore has similar biological activity. Chromium has been shown to be important for proper insulin function, nutrient metabolism, normal energy production, and promotion of healthy body weight and lean body mass.*
- Provides 200 mcg of chromium from niacin bound ChromeMate® per capsule.
- Efficacy and safety backed by numerous scientific studies.
- A unique niacin-bound chromium complex that supports the bioavailability and biological activity of chromium. Studies have shown that ChromeMate® is 18-times more bioactive than other forms of niacin-bound chromium
- Studies show ChromeMate® is absorbed and retained 600% better than chromium chloride and 300% better than chromium picolinate.
- ChromeMate® helps potentiate (support) the action of insulin in the body. Insulin is a vital hormone responsible for transporting glucose and other nutrients into cells, and maintaining healthy blood sugar and blood lipid levels.*
- Studies show that ChromeMate® (by supporting lipid and cholesterol metabolism) helps maintain cholesterol levels (total, LDL and HDL) already in the normal range.*
- ChromeMate® helps support healthy blood glucose, insulin and triglyceride levels as well as HgbA1C (marker of long-term blood glucose control). These are all markers used to measure risk for metabolic syndrome and Type 2 diabetes.*
- Clinical studies using ChromeMate® show that it helps support lean body mass and healthy body fat levels.*
