Chromium is an essential micronutrient that our body cannot produce; therefore, it has to be supplied externally through nutrition. The absorption of chromium taken in with food (whole grain, bran, legumes, meat, liver, cheese, etc.) is unfortunately very low; therefore, it is important to supplement the amount of chromium needed for the operation of our body from other external sources.
Daily chromium requirements:
|Children aged 1-3:||60 µg|
|Children aged 4-6:||80 µg|
|Children over 7 :||120 µg|
|During pregnancy and breast-feeding:||120 µg|
|Elderly people:||120 µg|
The role of chromium in the body:
- Its main role in the body is to control carbohydrate metabolism and to stabilize blood glucose levels
- it activates pancreatic functions
- it increases insulin activity
- it stabilises our energy balance
- it has a good effect on metabolic processes, thereby increasing the body’s strength and performance
- it positively affects fat metabolism and maintains the healthy level of ‘good cholesterol’(= HDL).
Symptoms of chromium deficiency:
- It is assumed that in case of chromium deficiency there is a higher risk of type 1 diabetes, also known as juvenile diabetes, and of coronary diseases.
- increased blood lipid and cholesterol level
- increased blood glucose level
- nervous system disorders, anxiety
- increased craving for sweets
- glucose intolerance
- amino acid metabolic disturbance, etc.
Due to its chelating property, the natural humic acid content of Humicin® Chrome capsule enhances the utilization of the added chromium, and its better absorption. Chelating molecules “grab” metal ions, thus saving them from the acids and enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract or other substances in the food, which would render them unavailable for absorption
