NOW® GTF Chromium 200 µg is a dietary supplement which contains a large dose of the best absorbable form of chromium. It is produced by using the so-called GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor), which is a chromium form naturally present in animal products, characterised by the highest bioavailability and safety of use.

Chromium is necessary to support living. It is a component of numerous enzymes, and its multidirectional effects support the proper functioning of the body system. It regulates processes associated with metabolism of glucose and fatty acids as well as insulin activity; it supports slimming and takes care of the healthy cardiovascular system. Its concentration can decline with age, in physically active people and diabetics.

Glucose metabolism
Already in the 1950s., the scientists isolated a compound which regulated carbohydrate management. Chromium was its active component. The substance was called GTF, Glucose Tolerance Factor. Since then, it is recommended for people suffering from type 2 diabetes to use this element.

The scientists claim that the reason for this phenomenon is the ability of chromium ions to increase insulin activity. This allows for regulation of glucose concentration in blood in people with hyperglycaemia. Moreover, a decline in glycosylated haemoglobin level is observed, which indicates the possible use of chromium as a support for a long-term diabetes control.

Physical activity
Because of the ability to increase insulin activity, chromium supplementation can be beneficial for physically active people, especially those aiming at muscle mass building. The hormone improves glucose and amino acids transport to muscle cells, increases the activity of growth hormone and inhibits the activity of catabolic enzymes which destroy muscles.

Support in weight loss
Chromium can also support the body system in lossing excessive adipose tissue. On the one hand, this is because of the above-described mechanism activating insulin action, and on the other hand, because of the larger use of fatty acids in energy processes. Moreover, because of the ability to regulate glucose level in blood, it can reduce craving for sweets.

Studies prove that chromium supplementation, especially combined with regular physical activity, can lead to faster weight loss and muscle mass building.

Support for the cardiovascular system
Cardiovascular diseases are still a frequent cause for death and severe complications. In order to stay healthy for years, you need to systematically take care of this important system.

Studies prove that chromium affects the cardiovascular system in various ways. On the one hand, it can reduce the level of the dangerous LDL cholesterol and increase the level of HDL. On the other hand, it can also reduce high blood pressure, which is one of the most common causes for atherosclerosis development.

Only few people are aware that high glucose level in blood also negatively affects blood vessels. As chromium normalises hyperglycaemia, it can be also beneficial for the protection of the cardiovascular system in people suffering from diabetes.

Health of the postmenopausal women
Postmenopausal women are at risk of many diseases, including the diseases of the cardiovascular and skeletal systems. Studies prove that supplementation with chromium can counteract some changes in the body system, which protects it from such diseases as atherosclerosis and osteoporosis.

The above-mentioned influence of chromium on cholesterol concentration and blood pressure can also counteract various pathologies of the cardiovascular system, including infarction. In recent years, scientists reported that the element reduces calcium excretion from the body system and increases the activity of dehydroepiandrosterone, which is particularly important in osteoporosis prevention.

To sum it all up, NOW® GTF Chromium 200 µg is a dietary supplement which contains a large dose of the best absorbable form of chromium which shows different health-promoting properties. It is especially recommended for people who want to lose excessive adipose tissue and build muscle mass. It is also intended for people suffering from diabetes and postmenopausal women.
