If you've never heard of Chromium before then you might be surprised to discover that it is actually an essential mineral. That means that not only does your body need it but it also cannot synthesise it organically, in other words, you have to get it from your diet.
It is most commonly found in oats, whole grain breads, cheeses, black pepper and cereals. All fairly common foods, so is there really a need to worry? As it turns out, approximately one out of ten of us is Chromium deficient in some way. Modern food processing has had a radically detrimental effect on the way we supply our bodies with Chromium, stripping it from almost all of its usual sources.
Without Chromium our bodies struggle to perform a range of processes properly. Principally, it plays a huge role in how insulin helps our body regulate sugar levels. Without that insulin, not only can our bodies fail to metabolise sugar and starches into much needed energy but we also run the risk of becoming diabetic.
Swanson Ultra Niacin-Bound Chromium is a revolutionary step in the way we can all introduce Chromium into our diets because it is protected by Niacin. Not only does this boost the bioavailability of the Chromium but it also strengthens the cholesterol busting qualities of the mineral.
As far back as the time of American Civil War, Chromium has been used to help balance sugar levels (they used brewer's yeast), but what else can it do for us? Well, Swanson Ultra Niacin-Bound Chromium has a range of healthy benefits to offer you, so much that you'll wonder how you've been doing without it.
A recent study at Auburn University, USA found that when 34 athletes were supplemented with a Niacin bound Chromium, there was an average lowering of serum cholesterol to 14%. That amounts to an overall 28%decrease in heart attack risk. At the same time, the ratio of LDL (good) cholesterol to total cholesterol rose by 7%, helping to protect the athletes.
So who needs this incredible supplement? There's no doubting that pretty much everyone stands to benefit from Swanson Ultra Niacin-Bound Chromium supplementation but there are several groups who are at particular risk of deficiency.The elderly Anyone who regularly exercises strenuously Those who eat a lot of sugary foods Pregnant women
