Cr-Zyme x 100 Tablets
- Vegetarian product
Cr-Zyme™ is a source of non-yeast chromium from the Biotics Research proprietary vegetable culture.
Chromium is an essential mineral and plays a significant role in the function of the hormone insulin. Although chromium is widely distributed in the food supply, most foods only supply very small amounts (under ~2 mcg per serving). Furthering the challenge to maintain adequate chromium stores is the fact that several factors, including diets high in simple carbohydrates, infection, acute exercise, pregnancy, lactation, trauma, and generalised stressful states may all result in increased chromium excretion.
Older people also tend to be more susceptible to depletion than younger adults. Additionally, certain medications such as antacids, corticosteroids, H2 blockers, and proton-pump inhibitors alter stomach acidity and may further impair chromium absorption or enhance excretion.
Chromium deficiency has been associated with impaired glucose metabolism, weight gain, fluid retention, increased blood pressure, carbohydrate cravings, elevated cholesterol, anxiety, and fatigue.
