How It Works:
Chromium is the central atom in the "glucose tolerance factor" (GTF), a hormone-like compound that works with insulin to transport glucose--the bodys quickest fuel--out of the blood and into the cells. GTF is composed of two niacin molecules and three amino acids, and it requires zinc and manganese. With chromium present in the diet, the intestines can produce GTF.
The liver also needs chromium to manufacture fatty acids, lecithin, cholesterol and lipoproteins. Chromium may positively affect blood fat levels and the liver filtration process.
