Natural Factors Chromium & Vanadium
This combination of minerals is especially helpful for people with blood sugar difficulties as both minerals assist in glucose metabolism.
Chromium is a component of a molecule called glucose tolerance factor (GTF) that regulates blood sugar levels, making it beneficial for both high and low blood sugar problems. The hormone insulin will not work without chromium. When we get enough chromium our sensitivity to insulin is improved and blood sugar levels may become normalized, whereas insufficient chromium may be responsible for hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, glycosuria and insulin resistance.
Vanadium is an ultra-trace mineral found in our body and in a variety of foods. Vanadium seems to help improve blood sugar levels and insulin resistance. Often as people age, their cell receptors sites are not as responsive to their own production of insulin, causing a dangerous rise in blood sugar. Studies show that vanadium may improve glucose tolerance in persons with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM).
