Ultra Chromium – Supports Healthy Insulin Function and Glucose Metabolism
When you eat a meal containing carbohydrates, your pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin. Insulin then binds to receptors on your cells, which allows the sugar (a.k.a. glucose) in your blood to enter the cell. Once inside the cell, glucose is used to make energy.
Unfortunately, many people these days are insulin resistant. This means that your cells don’t efficiently respond to insulin when it binds. They don’t open all their doors to let glucose in. So the sugar stays in your blood and your blood sugar begins to rise. If ignored, insulin resistance leads to type 2 diabetes. It’s also associated with several other conditions, including heart disease, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and high blood pressure.
However, chromium helps amplify insulin’s signal when it binds. So your cells respond and let glucose enter, which ultimately lowers your blood sugar.
Using chromium supplements to overcome insulin resistance and support diabetic patients is controversial. However, studies do exist demonstrating that chromium supplementation may help improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar as well as reduce the effects of oxidative stress.
Ultra Chromium was formulated to:*
*Support healthy blood sugar levels
*Promote insulin sensitivity
*Provide important minerals and antioxidants for optimal metabolism
