Optimized Chromium with Crominex 3+ (500mcg) Description from Life Extension
Chromium is an essential mineral that is not made by the body and must be obtained from the diet. It is widely recognized for its role in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in those with already normal levels.
Crominex 3+ is a new, highly stable and bioavailable form of chromium that is complexed with Capros amla (Phyllanthus emblica) and PrimaVie shilajit. These ingredients help to stabilize and enhance the bioavailability of the chromium.
Capros is obtained from Phyllanthus emblica, the superfruit Indian gooseberry using a patented water-based process. Capros is distinctly different from other commercially available Phyllanthus emblica extracts. The bioactive tannins in Indian gooseberries give Capros its cascading antioxidant effect, which means that its metabolites have antioxidant properties. The levels of these bioactive tannins are maintained at more than 60 percent, allowing for long-lasting protection.
Shilajit has been shown to help restore and sustain cellular energy. Part of shilajit's beneficial effects derive from its ability to help the mitochondria convert fats and sugars into adenosine triphosphate, or ATP - the body's main source of energy.
Chromium has a positive effect on blood glucose regulation and is needed for insulin to function properly. This chromium complex has excellent delivery of the chromium ion to target sites.
