When it comes to managing weight, Sugar Glucose (glucose) levels play a major role in whether or not we gain or lose the pounds. Chromium Polynicotinate plays an important role in our bodys proper use of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. This helps maintain healthy blood Sugar Glucose and cholesterol levels, heart health, and healthy weight management.* Although chromium is essential for your metabolism to function efficiently, chromium is not produced by the body and must be obtained from ones diet and supplementation. Foods rich in chromium such as mushrooms, broccoli, brewers yeast, brown rice, cheese, meat, and wheat germ- often are not consumed at levels high enough to supply the daily recommended levels of the nutrient to be effective. Olympian Labs Chromium Polynicotinate is made with ChromeMate, a patented biologically active oxygen-coordinated niacin-bound chromium complex. It works together with insulin as a part of the body's natural function for regulating glucose metabolism. Insulin depends on chromium to help move Sugar Glucose and fat into the bodys cells where nutrients are either burned for fuel or stored. An independent athlete-based study reported that six weeks of chromium supplementation significantly increased lean body mass and decreased body fat.
