Vitachrom™ is a food supplement that contains Chromium Picolinate as the active ingredient.
Chromium is one of the trace minerals needed by the body. It is needed to ensure the proper functioning of body reactions by acting as a coenzyme. Coenzymes are organic or inorganic compounds or elements that are needed to activate enzymes. Chromium helps to activate enzymes in the body.
What Does Chromium Do for Your Body?
CONTRIBUTES TO THE MAINTENANCE OF NORMAL BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS
Supplementation with this element is especially recommended for diabetics. It improves cell insulin sensitivity and lowers glycated hemoglobin. Increased blood glucose has a negative effect on the general condition of blood vessels, thus reducing their elasticity. Thus, it helps maintain normal blood glucose levels.
Chromium increases glucose and amino acid transport to muscle cells and inhibits catabolic enzymes.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL MACRONUTRIENT METABOLISM
Chromium helps in the metabolism of macronutrients. Macronutrients are high-weight molecular compounds that are found in foods. Examples of such are carbohydrates, proteins, and Fats. It is believed that Chromium helps in the metabolism of these nutrients. It does it by acting as an inorganic coenzyme that activates enzymes that catalyze the metabolic reaction of these macronutrients. Thus ensuring that the metabolism goes on normally.
Symptoms of Deficiency
Chromium deficiency is significantly common as people don't pay attention to the intake of chromium in their diet. Chromium deficiency may be more common with pregnant women, athletes, and diabetes patients. Symptoms of chromium deficiency may include any of the following:
- Impaired metabolism of macronutrients like proteins.
- Abnormal metabolism of macronutrients in the body may be an Indication of chromium deficiency.
- Some deficiency symptoms may mimic type 2 diabetes
Because chromium helps to regulate blood sugar and increase the sensitivity of insulin, some deficiency symptoms may present as insulin-dependent diabetes. Symptoms of this may present as Neuropathy, weight loss and decreased insulin sensitivity.
The body can't produce chromium and so it has to be taken. Vitachrom™ supplement would help in increasing the intake of chromium.
