Common Uses

GTF chromium was discovered when yeast extracts mixed with insulin were found to make insulin work better in the lowering of blood sugar levels. GTF, which contains chromium, was also found to be important in reducing cholesterol and triglycerides in diabetics.

GTF is an essential micronutrient but can not be classified as either a trace element or a vitamin. It is currently classified as a "nutrient" which means that it can be sold over the counter (without prescription or regulation).

While glucose tolerance factor chromium is found naturally in our foods: beef, beer, black pepper, brewer's yeast, calves' liver, cheese, clams, fresh fruits, lobsters, mushrooms, potatoes, scallops, thyme, whole grains, wines, research studies at the United States Department of Agriculture have estimated that as many as nine out of ten American diets are deficient in this important nutrient. Not only do most of us not get enough GTF chromium, the simple sugars in our diets, stress, and the simple act of aging all reduce the chromium supplies our bodies may have.

Suggested Dosage

Adults and children over 12 years of age: Take 1 tablet once or twice daily with food.

Health Information

GTF Chromium is a trace mineral that plays a role in regulating blood sugar levels. Each "glucose tolerance factor" (GTF) molecule, a hormone like compound, requires chromium as its central atom. GTF works with insulin to transport glucose from the blood into the cells. When this function is not working properly, the cells resist insulin and do not properly absorb the glucose needed for energy. The liver also needs chromium to manufacture fatty aids, lecithin, cholesterol, and lipoproteins. Without chromium, blood fats tend to rise because the liver cannot filter them out. Processing destroys much of the chromium content in foods.

Other ingredients: Cellulose, stearic acid (vegetable source), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and vegetable coating.  Contains no sugar, salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.
