Health and energy through Chromium Picolinate

Health and energy through Chromium Picolinate


Scientific research conducted in the United States showed that 90% of people have a chromium intake well below the daily requirement of 50-200 mcg. 80% of ingested chromium is lost in the digestive tract. This problem can be solved by using chromium picolinate, biologically active form. Chromium picolinate lowers LDL cholesterol in the blood and increase the HDL (high density lipoprotein), which results in lowering cholesterol deposition on arterial walls and thus the risk of cardiovascular disease. Chromium occurs in the metabolism of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. Research conducted on cellular models have demonstrated that insufficient intake of chromium slows the development of the body, contribute to shortening life and favor the impotence. In contrast, consumption of natural supplements containing chromium led to remarkable results

Without chromium, insulin is not able to participate in carbohydrate metabolism. Chromium is so helpful and diabetes, especially in the early stages of the disease, but it cannot be a substitute for insulin or oral hypoglycemics. Because participate in glucose metabolism, enhance the effect of insulin, regulates the internal energy distribution stabilizes blood glucose concentration facilitates uptake of amino acids, protein metabolism and enhances most metabolic processes, chromium enhances the ability to work and self-regeneration of the body.

The fact that Chromium picolinate helps weight loss without harmful side effects is a scientifically proven thing. Along with diet and little exercise, preparations chromium can help achieve ideal weight and maintaining it.

From SUN WAVE PHARMA portfolio, we can mention two products containing chromium picolinate: VITALIN PLUS to improve the disorders associated with neuropathies and REVISAN FORTE  – unique combination of minerals and vitamins to energize the mind and body.
