GTF Chromium 200µg

High strength well absorbed form of this important trace mineral.

Chromium is an essential nutrient that we must obtain from our diets, and recently it has been the focus of considerable research as there is some evidence that some people’s diets provide insufficient levels. This is because it is found mostly in meats and shellfish and so anyone who eats little of these may have a low intake.

We sell a form of chromium called a picolinate, a compound that occurs in nature and which is known to be a bioavailable source of this interesting trace mineral, and is sometimes called GTF (glucose tolerance factor). Chromium picolinate is a huge product in the USA and you can find out more about it by searching online.

We use a high quality grade of picolinate and our product is manufactured to GMP pharmaceutical standards here in the UK. We have always believed chromium was an important nutrient and so most of our multis for adults provide a full 200mcg per day.

I have been taking chromium for about 10 yrs for two reasons, firstly to dampen down the really sweet tooth that I used to have and now to ward off type 2 diabetis. I take 3 per day and much prefer savoury food now. For me they work!!

Helps My Chocoholism
By Julia Claxton - 6th February 2016
I have always had an addiction to chocolate - I can eat several family size bars in a day. I investigated the ingredients of chocolate and apart from calcium and iron and the cocoa bean there is Chromium. I have taken GTF Chromium 200µg for many years now and when I take it I do not crave chocolate and when I stop I do. I avoid carbs until 4pm in the day to stop me craving sugar. I don't eat fruit or raisins at breakfast etc. However, although all these things help it is the Chromium that keeps me stable. I am not diabetic as have been tested - I am just one of millions who is sensitive to carbs.

Seems To Work

By Anonymous - 13th August 2014

Why do you use this product GTF Chromium 200µg ?

Tried this as I do have cravings for sweet stuff especially chocolate. I also do lots of fitness stuff and at 59yrs I was feeling a bit tired afterwards. I thought my blood sugars dropping might be the reason, so i tried Chromium. So I have not had any cravings for chocolate since taking, which is unusual for me and my energy level seem more stable throughout the day.
I will continue to take but have a break from the supplement after 3 months as to see if there is a difference also to detox, as when checking the internet on Chromium it does get mixed reviews on safety.Might try Cinnamin as an option as this is supposed to have similar effects on blood suger levels.

Our Response: Thank you for your review.
It is great to read that you are finding GTF Chromium 200mcg (code 675) useful.
The three month stage is a good time to reassess how useful this supplement is to you. Please be assured that GTF Chromium 200mcg is based on up to date clinical literature with regard to both safety and efficacy and it is suitable for long term use should you require.

As you are aware, research suggests that cinnamon may also help to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Nature's Best Cinnamon 2500mg (code 125) is from the relevant species and part of the plant, from the tree bark as opposed to the oil, which is thought to be principally responsible for cinnamon’s actions. The recommended dose is one tablet per day with a meal. I attach a link to Cinnamon 2500mg, below.

It may also be of interest to you to know that our multivitamin Multi-Guard Balance (code 578), has been formulated with blood sugar balance in mind and provides both chromium and cinnamon. Multi-Guard Balance also provides excellent levels of B vitamins and magnesium, micronutrients which are thought to support energy levels and which may be more readily depleted with intensive exercise. I recommend taking two tablets per day with meals. Please find a link to Multi-Guard Balance, below.

Zebedee Zeal

By Juliette Porter - 18th April 2014

Why do you use this product GTF Chromium 200µg ?

My brother is T1 diabetic and recommended this supplement for me as I've recently been diagnosed as T2 diabetic. I've been feeling sluggish for some time, but within a couple of days of taking Chromium, I felt an extra zeal for life. I take my chromium with several other supplements (CoQ10, B-50 and choline/inositol to name just a few) and together, I've got more Zebedee bounce. I feel like me again.

Gtf Chronium 200

By Anne Stebbings - 15th March 2014

Why do you use this product GTF Chromium 200µg ?

I am Diabetic. I have been taking Chromium for several years and find them very beneficial in controlling my blood sugar levels. I am not now taking any diabetic tablets. With a low carbohydrate diet and chromium and Omega 3, I am able to control the levels much better. I have tried other supplements, including a Multivitamin with 200mg of Chromium in, but it did not have the same effect as the pure Chromium.

Really Helpful

By Guinette Davies - 24th January 2014

Why do you use this product GTF Chromium 200µg ?

Chromium was recommended (with others) as a supplement for helping to reduce blood sugar levels (I am a diabetic). Together with a Low GL diet I have seen a dramatic drop in levels within 10 days. I have also been amazed at my increased energy levels.

By Kathleen Simpson - 27th July 2012

Why do you use this product GTF Chromium 200µg
I have to admit that I have forgotten the reason why I started taking Chromium, except that it must have been recommended for my lifestyle in the pieces of health journalism I read from time to time. Nevertheless I have used Natures Best Products for many years, keep on ordering them, and am very satisfied with the quality of the items and the efficiency of the ordering system and delivery.

Cromium

By Joergen Hasselkjaer - 28th May 2012

The reason that I started taking crome is that at one time I was diagnosed with diabetes 2, but Medizin I could not tolerate. I then read that one of the causes of diabetes may be a lack of chrome / vanadium which is helping to form insulin. This is why I bought cromium with you in hopes that this can help me.

Sincerely
