Diabet-Life helps in the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels which supports healthy heart and circulatory health. Chromium also diabetic management macronutrient metabolism.
Chromium is a metallic element that humans require in very small amounts. It is an essential part of metabolic processes that regulate blood sugar and helps insulin transport glucose into cells, where it can be used for energy. Chromium also appears to be involved in the metabolism of carbohydrate, fat and protein.
Chromium helps in enhancing the actions of insulin and is necessary for maintaining normal metabolism and storage of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Inadequate intake of chromium has been linked to the development of glucose intolerance, a condition seen in type 2 diabetes. Chromium can also help raise HDL ("good") cholesterol levels and may play a role in preventing heart disease.
Because adequate dietary chromium helps to maintain insulin sensitivity, chromium deficiency can contribute to the development of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Even mild deficiencies of chromium can produce problems in blood sugar metabolism and contribute to other symptoms such as anxiety or fatigue. Altered cholesterol metabolism, accelerated atherosclerosis, decreased growth in young people and delayed healing time after injuries or surgery can result from chromium deficiency.
Benefits of Chromium :
→ It is an important element in the metabolism of glucose into energy, as well as assisting in the conversion of fat, proteins and carbohydrates into energy for your body to use.
→ Specifically, it seems to help regulate the effects of insulin on sugar, making it an important dietary need for those who are either prediabetic or have type II diabetes.
→ In addition, chromium is essential in the breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates and fats also may help promote muscle tone, as well as lowering cholesterol in the blood.
→ Chromium may be useful in improving lipid profiles – i.e. – lowering bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol. This has been suggested by the results of a handful of studies, but is not yet confirmed.
