Chromium, the metallic element once believed to be toxic, is now generally recognized to play an important role in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in those within normal levels when used as part of your diet. Age-related decreases in chromium levels in 51,665 hair, sweat, and serum samples from 40,872 patients indicate the possible benefits of chromium intake for healthy blood sugar levels. In addition, supplemental chromium has been shown to promote a healthy cardiovascular system.
For many years, Life Extension has included niacin in its chromium supplements. In response to evidence that people may benefit from higher doses of chromium, a formula was developed to provide 500 mcg of chromium along with 60 mg of flush-free niacin in just one capsule. To provide full-spectrum benefits, the antioxidants and gene-protecting nutrients like curcumin, resveratrol, and green tea have been included.
