Chromium is essential for protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. It plays a fundamental role in:
Chromium is a trace element described as ‘essential' because the body cannot make it and it must therefore be obtained from the diet. However, even the diet cannot provide sufficient chromium, especially because cereal-based foods are often refined. In addition, levels of chromium tend to decline as we age and marginal deficiencies are not uncommon.
This new form of chromium has been formulated to preserve the chromium in its trivalent form (Cr3+), offering better consistency, and in particular, significantly improved bioavailability. Crominex® 3+ is a stable blend obtained by reacting chromium with:
Crominex® 3+ is obtained through an entirely aqueous process which enables all its active principles to be retained, and is guaranteed to be completely free of toxic Cr6+, while chromium picolinate and chromium nicotinate samples tested did contain it.
Either on its own, or in synergy with two allopathic active substances widely prescribed for type 2 diabetes, Crominex® 3+ is effective at reducing fasting and post-prandial blood sugar levels, glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), hsCRP levels and microalbuminuria in diabetics.
Crominex® 3+ - combined with these two substances - reduces micturition frequency, general weakness, dizziness, excessive appetite, tingling of the skin and arthralgia in diabetics. In addition, studies on moderately-arthritic dogs have shown that administering Crominex® 3+ reduces joint pain during manipulation of limbs and following physical exercise. Crominex® 3+ therefore helps to:
Each vegetarian capsule provides 200 µg of trivalent chromium, 3mg of Capros (Phyllantus emblica) and 3 mg of PrimaVie® (shilajit extract). For optimal efficacy, one to two capsules a day of Crominex® 3+ is recommended, preferably with meals.
