Description

Each tablet of BioActive Chromium contains 100 micrograms of elementary chromium. The chromium used in BioActive Chromium is organically bound meaning it is bound to yeast and natural amino acids (chromium yeast). It has an excellent bioavailability in the body ensuring that it is up to 10 times more absorbable than other approved sources of chromium. BioActive Chromium is made with a patented organic source called ChromoPrecise®, which is a chromium yeast developed specifically to provide optimal bio-availability. This specific chromium source is manufactured in compliance with the most rigid set of control rules (the GMP standard that is normally used to manufacture pharmaceuticals) to ensure excellent quality and safety with exhaustive documentation.

  • Organically bound chromium from chromium yeast
  • High bio-bioavailability
  • Helps to maintain the body’s normal blood sugar levels
  • Contributes to a normal metabolism of dietary nutrients
  • Manufactured under Danish pharmaceutical control
  • Scientifically tested

What is chromium?

Chromium is an important mineral that contributes to normal metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. In addition, chromium supports biological processes involved in maintaining normal blood sugar levels. Inorganically bound chromium usually has a poor bioavailability in the body. The effect of a chromium supplement is determined by how effectively the nutrient is absorbed in the body.

Chromium is several things

Normally, we associate chromium with the chromium-plated fixtures in bathrooms or on motorbikes. The chromium form used for these purposes (industrial chromium) is not part of human biochemistry. We need chromium in its so-called trivalent form. Trivalent means that it is able to form three chemical bonds with other atoms (industrial chromium is hexavalent).

Scandinavian, British, and American dietary analyses show that the average chromium intake is somewhere around 30-40 µg daily. EFSA (the European Food Safety Authority) recommends a daily chromium intake of 40 µg, while the WHO considers the nutrient as safe with intakes up to 250 µg
