What does Pharma Nord Bio Chromium do?
Chromium is essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fat and protein, helping to maintain healthy blood glucose and cholesterol levels. Chromium is a component of the so-called Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) complex, which together with the hormone insulin, regulates carbohydrate metabolism and glucose balance within the body. Inorganic chromium is not incorporated into the GTF, and not all forms of organic chromium are GTF active. Chromium makes the action of insulin more effective, and helps the body to remove fat from the bloodstream. Chromium plays an important role in the natural weight regulating mechanism of the body. Chromium also helps maintain healthy immune function.
