Bluebonnet's Yeast-Free Chelated Chromium Capsules provide 200 mcg of elemental chromium from fully reacted chromium nicotinate glycinate, an amino acid chelate mineral from Albion. Available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.
Chromium (micromineral) is an essential nutrient required for normal sugar and fat metabolism. It works primarily by augmenting the action of insulin and by stimulating fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, which are important for brain function and other bodily processes. Plus, it activates enzymes that drive numerous essential chemical reactions, as well as assists in nucleic acid metabolism, growth and immune function. Dietary sources high in chromium include eggs, beef, whole grains, spices, mushrooms, coffee, broccoli, brewer’s yeast and molasses.
Mineral chelates (pronounced KEY-lates) are minerals bound to special “carriers” like amino acids and are particularly effective in propelling nutrients into the blood stream. Few nutritional substances cross the intestinal wall as quickly and easily as amino acids, thanks to their unique active transport mechanism of absorption. By linking the two, the amino acid is able to transport the mineral across the intestinal lining into the body, so it can be put to use. However, to be transported intact, the mineral must have a stable bond to the amino acid. Simply mixing minerals with amino acids – a basic ionic and hydrogen bond – will not produce a stable product. Mineral “chelates” created in this manner often lose their integrity during digestion and compromise the nutrient’s availability.
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
