Description

60 capsules, 500 mcg Chromium is an important trace mineral in blood glucose metabolism. When glucose rises above a certain level, insulin is excreted by the pancreas. Insulin attaches to specific receptor sites on every cell and opens the cell door so glucose can enter the cell. In patients with Diabetes Type II these receptor sites have become unsensitive to insulin and do not react when insulin binds to them. As a consequence, glucose can not be used properly, the blood levels stay high and the pancreas produces far too much insulin. This overabundance of insulin creates a constant feeling of hunger and craving for sweets and is responsible for the accumulation of fat; it thus leads to obesity. As obesity is thought to be the reason for the receptor site's loss of sensitivity,a vicious cycle goes into effect. Chromium increases the sensitivity of these receptor sites to insulin, so insulin is used and produced efficiently. This stops the overproduction of insulin and reduces the hunger and craving. It thereby assists fat loss.
