Chromium GTF

Chromium GTF
Generally measured in micrograms (mcg), Chromium, as naturally organic Chromium GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor), is an important mineral that stimulates certain enzymes involved in the metabolism of glucose. A deficiency of Chromium GTF can lead to and aggravate adult-onset diabetes.

A Chromium GTF deficiency is quite common in the United States (not so much in the rest of the world) because the soil does not contain enough to supply the proper amounts to plants or the water supply.

Food Sources:
  • Brewers Yeast (best)
  • Meats
  • Liver
  • Whole Wheat Bread
  • Beets
When supplementing, look for products with that indicate either GTF or from “chromium yeast.” This is the only form of chromium proven in peer review journals to produce the results the body wants.
