Higher Power Chromium
The dietary supplement up for review is called Chromium by Higher Power Nutrition. There is nothing in this essential for a human body or its functions so it is a true supplement. This bottle contains 100mg with other ingredients called dicalcium phosphate and magnesium stearate.
Since this item is less than $10 per bottle of 100 capsules on http://www.bodybuildingpro.com it does not have the benefits as other products by Higher Power do such as CoQ10 for example. Therefore if you only want to take limited pills a day then stick with more expensive products.
In the movie Erin Brokovich, a large amount of people had various health problems because of the hexavalent chromium found in the water from industrial pollution which resulted in a class action law suit which was successful on behalf of the people in the small town that was polluted. However, the other form of chromium called trivalent is found in foods and is known to enhance the action of insulin that is a hormone critical to the metabolism and storage of carbohydrate, fat, and protein in the body. Recently a compound in brewers' yeast was found to prevent an age-related decline in the ability of rats to maintain normal levels of glucose in their blood where Chromium was identified as the active ingredient in this glucose tolerance factor more recently.
Chromium has long been of interest for its possible connection to various health conditions. Among the most active areas of chromium research is its use in supplement form to treat diabetes, lower blood lipid levels, promote weight loss, and improve body composition.
Certain medications may interact with chromium, especially when taken on a regular basis. Before taking dietary supplements, check with your doctor or other qualified healthcare provider, especially if you take prescription or over-the-counter medications.
Chromium deficiency impairs the body's ability to use glucose to meet its energy needs and raises insulin requirements. It has therefore been suggested that chromium supplements might help to control type two diabetes or the glucose and insulin responses in persons at high risk of developing the disease. The effects of chromium supplements were assessed on three markers of diabetes in the blood: glucose, insulin, long-term glucose levels; also known as hemoglobin. Results summarized data from 15 trials on 618 participants, of which 425 were in good health or had impaired glucose tolerance and 193 had type two diabetes. Chromium supplementation had no effect on glucose or insulin concentrations in the non-diabetic subjects nor did it reduce these levels in subjects with diabetes, except in one study. However, that study, conducted in China in which 155 diabetics were given either 200 or 1,000 mcg/day of chromium or a placebo might simply show the benefits of supplementation in a chromium-deficient population.
To get these benefits, view http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/hp/chromium.html and do not take more than one capsule every two days because the quantity of each pill on the site is 1000mcg.
Chromium is distributed by Higher Power Nutrition, 305 Steelhead Way, Boise, ID 83704 USA.
LyteNGo is manufactured by LifExpand Inc. Which is located in Boca Raton, FL 33488 USA.
