Description: Chromium GTF 200 100c (Veggie Capsule) is available by Douglas Laboratories.
A Dietary Supplement
100 Vegetarian Capsules
provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a trace element supplement that
contains chromium bound to nicotinic acid. Each tablet provides 200 mcg
of chromium in its non-toxic trivalent form.
ChromeMate may be given orally as a
daily supplement for individuals who wish to supplement their intake of
chromium or who have a demonstrated need for supplemental chromium in
its active form due to dietary deficiency or impaired metabolism.
Chromium is generally accepted as an
essential trace mineral that potentiates insulin action and thus
influences carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism. The biologically
active form of chromium, sometimes called glucose tolerance factor
(GTF), occurs naturally in brewers yeast. GTF has been proposed to be a
complex of chromium, nicotinic acid (vitamin B3), and possibly the
amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. Many attempts have
been made to isolate or synthesize natural GTF, but none have been
entirely successful. The most promising approach to natural GTF is
Chromium Polynicotinate, the active form of chromium in ChromeMate.
other synthetic chromium complex comes as close to natural GTF as
Chromium Polynicotinate (niacin-bound chromium) in terms of biological
activity and chemical structure. Chromium absorption is typically less
than 2% efficient and variable depending on its chemical form. Studies
have demonstrated that chromium from ChromeMate has a higher
bioavailability than other chromium compounds, such as chromium
picolinate or chloride. Tissues retained anywhere from 2 to 8 times
more chromium from
ChromeMate compared to Chromium Picolinate
or Chromium Chloride. The typical dietary chromium intake in the U.S.
can vary considerably depending on eating habits. Meats and unrefined
whole grain cereal products, especially bran, are good sources of
chromium. However, most self-selected diets contain less than 50 mcg
per day, which is below the minimum of the Estimated Safe and Adequate
Daily Dietary Intake established by the National Research Council, Food
and Nutrition Board. Chromium requirements may be increased with high
intake of refined carbohydrates and simple sugars, strenuous physical
exercise or work, infection, or physical trauma.
