Chromium GTF is a product by Nature’s Sunshine that may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Chromium is a mineral that not only helps support normal blood sugar but also helps balance glucose and fatty acids in the body. It also helps take glucose to the cells and reduces the body’s requirement for insulin. In turn this may have an effect on cardiovascular health and the health of the arteries.
GTF stands for glucose tolerance factor. Every glucose tolerance factor molecule in the body needs chromium to serve as its main atom. These molecules are somewhat like hormones that work in conjunction with insulin to bring glucose from the bloodstream to the cells where it needs to be.
The liver is another part of the body that requires chromium in order to make important fatty acids, lipoproteins, lecithin and cholesterol. Although chromium is found in certain foods, processing and cooking removes a substantial amount of it. This formula features chromium amino acid chelate and chromium nicotinate together with red clover, yarrow and horsetail herb.
