Chromium Picolinate 250 μg
Chromium is an essential trace element for the controll of the blood sugar levels as well as for regulating the carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. By being bonded to picolinic acid (chromium picolinate) its bioavailability as been increased. A health benefit has been found, especially with respect to carbohydrate-rich diets (increased need), as it occurs in athletes, or to balance a reduced chromium intake (for example, in old age).
• Very high bioavailability due to chromium picolinate
• Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and diabetic people
• Concentrated source of chromium without "empty" calories
• Essential trace element
As macronutrients are defined the nutrients from which the body obtains its vital energy. These include carbohydrates, proteins and fats, as well as the trace elements chromium that in spite of being present only in small quantities in the body, is essential for the health. Chromium is taking part in numerous processes that keep your body healthy and balanced, especially with respect to the carbohydrate metabolism. With our preparation, you get trivalent chromium, the biologically most valuable form of this trace element. In this way it is rapidly transported to its destinations: the muscles and fat cells, where it is contributing to the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels.
Organic chromium picolinate from Zeinpharma®
With your health in mind, we have dealt with the sources of organic chromium that come into question, because it is much better absorbed by the body than the inorganic one. The chrome salts, chromium chloride and chromium nicotinate, contained in the products of other manufacturers have only a low bioavailability. The combination of chromium picolinate contained in the ZeinPharma® capsules provides a superior bioavailability. The chromium is rapidly absorbed and does not burden your metabolism.
High tolerability guaranteed
Take a highly-dosed capsule of chromium picolinate a day (250 μg) in order to sufficiently supply your body with additional chromium. By maintaining the recommended daily intake, the additional chromium has no side effects to your body. Chromium picolinate has a high bioavailability, thus it is rapidly available for your body and can act quickly. Moreover, the high-quality and controlled sources from which we extract our preparation are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The capsules do not contain any relevant additives for allergy sufferers. Chromium picolinate is therefore an uncomplicated nutritional supplement that can contribute to your well-being and health.
Chromium in the daily diet
Chromium, as a trace element, is also present in the foods we daily consume. Fruits and vegetables contain between 2 and 8 μg of chromium per 100g of food. Meat and fish have also a similar high content of between 1 and 10 μg. A higher content of chromium is found, for instance, in nuts. While almonds contain about 12 μg per 100g, hazelnuts contain in average about 14 μg per 100g. This means that you would need to consume about 2 kg of almonds or 1.8 kg of hazelnuts in order to absorb 250 μg of chromium. Use ZeinPharma capsules to take even amounts of this essential trace element without unnecessarily adding "empty" calories.
5 Reasons for taking Chromium Picolinate
An important notice for you: If you take zinc or iron supplementation, it is more difficult for your body to absorb chromium. For this reason, the best solution is to take the respective supplements with a time distance of about two hours. On the other hand, there are indications that taking vitamin C together with chromium leads to better bioavailability. For this reason, we recommend the combination of chromium picolinate with vitamin C, as vitamin C contributes to a normal energy metabolism.
