Hi-Chrome® – For Obesity, Hypercholesterolemia & Diabetes Mellitus

Composition

Each tablet contains chromium picolinate 1.6 mg (200 mcg chromium).

Chromium is an essential element required for normal carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Chromium is not formed by the human body, therefore, it needs to be supplemented. Normal dietary intake often appears to be suboptimal.

Properties

Chromium potentiates the action of insulin by forming a ternary complex with insulin receptors, facilitating the initiation of insulin action. Chromium also improves sugar tolerance. Its severe deficiency may cause diabetes-like illness.

During pregnancy, deficiency of chromium may explain gestational diabetes. Chromium leads to modest increase in HDL cholesterol and lowers LDL and total plasma cholesterol. Thus chromium improves HDL/LDL ratio and clears the arteries. Elevated serum cholesterol is considered as one of the risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, thus chromium may be a protective factor against ischemic coronary heart diseases.

Chromium has anabolic effect on skeletal muscles, promoting amino acid uptake and protein synthesis, thus increasing gain of lean body mass.

This action is attributed to the anabolic effect of insulin.

Chromium acts as insulin cofactor, thus it promotes fat burning, muscle building and cholesterol utilization.

This plays an important role in decreasing body fat and losing body weight.
