The central atom in the “glucose tolerance factor” (GTF), Chromium transports quick fuel glucose into cells for energy. Enhanced benefit from horsetail, red clover and yarrow.
- Helps maintain blood sugar levels already within the normal range
- Helps support circulatory systems and vascular health
HOW IT WORKS
Chromium is the central atom in the “glucose tolerance factor” (GTF), a hormone-like compound that works with insulin to transport glucose—the body’s quickest fuel—out of the blood and into the cells. GTF is composed of two niacin molecules and three amino acids, and it requires zinc and manganese. With chromium present in the diet, the intestines can produce GTF. The liver also needs chromium to manufacture fatty acids, lecithin, cholesterol and lipoproteins.
WHY OUR CHROMIUM GTF?
Your health takes more than just this essential trace mineral, and Chromium GTF delivers. With a unique blend of ethically sourced ingredients, including wild-crafted, kosher-certified horsetail from the black, fertile soil of Bulgaria, Chromium GTF supports circulatory function and so much more. This soulfully crafted formula features botanicals with a rich history of traditional use to support circulatory, immune and nervous system health.
THE STORY BEHIND CHROMIUM GTF (300 MCG)
Discovered by Louis-Nicholas Vauquelin in the late 1700s, chromium is prominent in the body. As a trace mineral, it’s found naturally in many foods, including meats, grains, fruits, vegetables and spices. But the amount of chromium in these foods varies dramatically.
Use of horsetail dates back to ancient Rome and Greece. Traditionally it was used for wounds and kidney problems. Due to its silicon content, horsetail has been recommended for bone health as well. And it has been researched for its diuretic and antioxidant properties.
Wild red clover commonly grows in meadows throughout Europe and Asia, and it’s now cultivated in North America, too. It has been used traditionally for respiratory problems, and skin concerns. Health care practitioners believe that red clover’s diuretic activity “purifies” the blood, improving circulation and helping cleanse the liver.
Yarrow, or Achillea millefolium, is named after the mythical Greek hero Achilles, who used it on the wounds of his solders. In ancient times it was referred to as Herba Militaris. Native Americans embraced yarrow for a variety of applications, including minor discomfort and digestive support.
