21ST Century GTF CHROMIUM works with insulin in the metabolism of sugar, protein, fats and carbohydrates. GTF CHROMIUM helps bring protein to where it is needed. It has been discovered that as one gets older, less GTF CHROMIUM is retained in the body.
The effects of chromium deficiency can be very serious. Food processing tends to remove much of the naturally occurring GTF CHROMIUM.
GTF CHROMIUM is found in natural sources such as calves’ livers, wheat germ, brewer’s yeast, chicken, corn oil and clams. For low chromium levels, a chelated Zinc supplement is recommended.
It is listed as an essential mineral in the U.S. with an RDI (recommended daily intake) of 200mcg.
