3 - Natural Factors Chromium & Vanadium
Both chromium & vanadium improve glucose metabolism, this making this combination particularly helpful for those with blood sugar problems.
Chromium is part of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) molecule, which is responsible for regulating blood sugar, and is therefore beneficial for those with both high and low blood sugar. When our body has a sufficient amount of chromium, it may regulate blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. Without adequate levels of chromium, the insulin hormone is unable to work, and may be a chief factor of insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, and glycosuria.
Vanadium is found within our bodies and in various foods. It is an ultra trace mineral that is believed to be helpful for insulin resistance and improving blood sugar levels. With aging, oftentimes out cell receptor sites become less responsive to their production of insulin, which causes dangerous elevations of blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that vanadium may also help glucose tolerance in individuals with non-insulin dependent diabetes.
