The Minerals and Herbs in GlucoChrom

Two statistical ingredients that indicate a person’s state of health are blood glucose levels and body weight. And there’s a causative connection between the two. An unhealthy body weight can lead to the complications of high blood sugar.

GlucoChrom is formulated with four natural ingredients that support both healthy blood sugar levels and weight management in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

The Minerals

This trace mineral acts like a facilitator for insulin, a hormone that regulates the transfer of glucose from blood into cells. Chromium is thought to be a cofactor of chromodulin, a chromium-binding substance that enhances insulin sensitivity and the uptake and storage of glucose for energy. Furthermore, chromium plays a role in the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.

The activity of this mineral has an influence on the insulin signaling pathway that effects glucose uptake and storage. In the July 2020 Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, vanadium is called a partner of insulin in regard to metabolic regulation. Even though the body requires only a trace amount, vanadium’s biological action is extensive, right down to cel-
lular metabolism.

The Herbs

Bitter Melon
This edible, tropical fruit is a food that provides benefits for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Over 200 compounds have been identified in bitter melon, including bioactive carotenoids, flavonoids and phytosterols. A study published in 2022 focused on the peptides in bitter melon that prove to be effective for lowering blood glucose levels.

Gymnema Extract
This herbal ingredient comes from the leaves of Gymnema sylvestre, a woody, climbing plant that is native to India, where its Hindi name means “destroyer of sugar.“ Recent research indicates that gymnema enhances the secretion of insulin, lowers blood sugar and suppresses cravings for sweet foods and snacks, thereby reducing caloric intake and contributing to weight management.

One capsule of GlucoChrom delivers 200 micrograms of chromium,
37.5 micrograms of vanadium and a combined 475 milligrams of bitter melon and gymnema extract.
