Chromium is an essential trace element that functions within cells and regulates the functioning of insulin, for faster and more efficient metabolism of fat, carbohydrates and proteins.
An organic complex of chromium was identified as the active ingredient and was named "glucose tolerance factor» (GTF).
H specific nature of the tolerance factor GTF and the mechanism by which enhances the action of insulin in the body are not fully understood so far, however, chromium is likely to promote the entry of insulin into cells, facilitating the transfer of longitudinal of cell membranes.
Research has shown that chromium can be used as a supplement for weight loss, and is necessary for athletes or endurance or dynamic sports, because after the exercise is increased urinary loss of chromium.
Since chromium influences the metabolism of glucose and fat, researchers have examined the potential ability to promote weight loss and improve body composition (eg less fat, more muscle mass).
In type 2 diabetes, although the pancreas produces enough insulin, muscle cells and other tissues become resistant to the action, which ultimately leads to poor control of blood glucose levels.
Many studies have examined the effect of chromium supplementation in people with type 2 diabetes and found that chromium supplementation does improve blood sugar control in these patients.
