Chrom Activ is a dietary supplement which provided 200 µg of chromium ions in a single serving.
Chromium is an element crucial for many processes occurring in the human body system. It is responsible for the maintenance of the proper amounts of glucose in blood (especially in obese people and those with insulin resistance) and the proper fat metabolism.
Nowadays, chromium deficiencies are very common. The factors that promote its loss include improper diet, excessive physical effort, pregnancy, infections and injuries. Deficiency of this element can be associated with improper functioning of the cardiovascular system and type 2 diabetes.
Chromium is an element which is absorbed mainly in the large intestine, where it is bound to a protein, transferrin. Transferrin receptor is placed on the cell membrane and it is activated by insulin action, which allows for chromium transport into the cell. In cytoplasm and the cell nucleus which are insulin sensitive, there is an inactive oligopeptyde called apochromodulin, which, after binding to 4 atoms of chromium, is activated to chromodulin. Such a complex binds with a beta-subunit of activated insulin receptor, which results in an activation of tyrosine kinase and improvement in the signal sent after insulin action. The result of such action is an increase in GLUT4 protein functions, which is responsible for the transport of glucose into the cell to resynthesize the muscle glycogen. Thanks to that the high blood sugar is reduced to the physiological level.
Moreover, chromium is responsible for the proper activity of enzymes regulating fat metabolism, which is why it affects the proper cholesterol level and the optimum relationship between its fractions as well as it reduces triglycerides level, which is important for the functioning of the cardiovascular system.
Next to the influence on the metabolism of valuable nutrients, chromium causes the increase in tryptophan, which is the basic substrate for the synthesis of serotonin, which is called a happiness hormone. Moreover, the hormone is important for reducing appetite, which facilitates avoiding sugar and unhealthy food during reduction.
Chromium positively affects the immune system, which helps to reduce the risk of diseases during reduction.
The supplement Chrom Activ is intended for everybody who observes the deficiencies of this element in his body system, and mainly for people who want to stay fit. Moreover, the element has a scientifically proven influence on insulin action, which is why it regulates blood sugar which is beneficial for fat reduction. It also helps to maintain the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system, whose disorders nowadays cause severe diseases.
Chromium has the ability to increase cell sensitivity to insulin, thanks to which its supplementation during a meal rich in carbohydrates may contribute to lowering its glycemic index. It is especially important in the case of people who has to control glucose level in blood – people with diabetes, those who try to lose weight and those who have a tendency to eat excessive amounts of sweets.

Chromium (chemical element from transition group of the chromium, chemically active) is actively involved in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It comes in the easily assimilable organic form and inorganic. Along with insulin, as a component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), is used in insulin-dependent diabetes treatment, insulin involved in the metabolism of glucose in t proteins transport. Activator of enzymes involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol. Available in animal origin products (liver, veal, chicken, turkey meat, oysters) and plant-origin (bananas, broccoli, cereal, wheat germ, spinach). Supplements containing chromium are recommended for fat loss (also thermogenic), and improving the functioning of the body. The sports supplementation used chromium in the form of mono-preparations or in the form of vitamin-mineral minerals supplements.
Chromium deficiency results in impaired glucose, reducing the insulin sensitivity. It causes a decrease in immunity and endurance of the body. It may be a cause of coronary heart disease. Sometimes it causes neurological disorders.
Dosage: A varied diet prevents from the deficiency of chromium in the body.
Dosage: The recommended dose of 50-150 mg per day.
Chromium Picolinate is a complex containing trivalent chromium and picolinic acid, for greater assimilation, it has chelating and anti-inflammatory properties. Trivalent chromium is a part of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), supporting the anabolic effect of insulin in the creatine transport into the muscle cells. Chromium is used to treat type 1 diabetes melitus, and with insulin it is involved in the metabolism of glucose it transport of protein. It is an activator of enzymes involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol. Chromium picolinate is used by people active beyond sports and in sports supplementation as fat burners affecting fat reduction, weight loss, as well as a compound which enhances uptake of nutrients by muscle cells and the vitamin and mineralizing supplements, available www.muscle-zone. pl
