Chromium is an essential trace mineral that is deficient in New Zealand soils. On top of this, the average Western diet is deficient in chromium containing foods. Chromium is needed for correct insulin function, it stimulates the activity of enzymes involved in the metabolism of glucose for energy and the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol. It appears to increase the effectiveness of insulin to handle glucose and can help prevent hypoglycaemia or diabetes.
Chromium - Not easy to get enough in your diet
The ability to maintain normal blood sugar levels is jeopardised by the lack of chromium in our soil and water supply and by a diet high in refined white sugar, flour and junk foods.
Chromium and Blood Sugar
If a person is not getting enough chromium, their insulin cannot perform as effectively as it should. Impaired insulin activity is referred to as insulin resistance. If your body becomes insulin resistant, more glucose remains in your blood stream and is more likely to be stored as fat, rather than moving into your cells to be burned for energy. Insulin is known as the master metabolic hormone.
Chromium enhances your metabolism by improving impaired insulin function therefore, chromium supports healthy blood sugars, giving you more energy and an improved sense of well being. If insulin and blood sugar are working better, a person can expect health benefits such as improved blood sugar and insulin function, which are strongly associated with overall good health.
