Metabolics uses Chromium Picolinate, which is an effective source of chromium, with superior bio availability, making it an excellent trivalent source of chromium.
Chromium is an important trace mineral. It is found in 2 forms,
Trivalent (Chromium 3+) which is biologically available in foods such as broccoli, meat, tea and grains although levels of Chromium in foods vary depending on the soil content. Chromium is poorly absorbed from the digestive tract, between 0.4% -2.5% of the amount consumed, the rest is excreted. Chromium absorption is enhanced by Vitamin C and is stored in the liver.
Hexavalent (Chromium 6+), a toxic form resulting from pollution.
Chromium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. It does this by participating in glucose metabolism, enhancing the effects of insulin. Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas when blood glucose increases after a meal. It binds to insulin receptors on cell surfaces, activating them and stimulating glucose uptake by the cells for energy. It is believed that when the insulin receptor is activated chromium moves into the cell, binds to a peptide enhancing the insulin receptor activity
Contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism by facilitating the action of insulin. It therefore promotes the breakdown of fat, carbohydrates and proteins
