NOW Tri-Chromium w/Cinnamon
Chromium is an essential trace mineral that works with insulin to support healthy blood glucose levels already within the normal range and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat and carbohydrates. It is a mineral nutrient that serves as a cofactor for insulin, making it essential for insulin to function properly in its role as a chemical signal. Insulin is the signal that allows glucose and amino acids from the bloodstream to enter the cell. Insulin is also one of the chemical signals that tells the body when to produce muscle tissue and when to store fat. Therefore, both insulin and Chromium are critical for the maintenance of serum glucose levels within healthy ranges.
Cinnamon has been used throughout history by herbalists to promote healthy digestion and metabolism. Studies have shown that cinnamon helps balance blood sugar and reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
