GTF Chromium helps regulate your blood sugar levels; it can either lower or raise blood sugar levels. It is necessary for insulin to work properly.
In Type 2 diabetes insulin is not produced in adequate amounts. Studies in the past show people with Type 2 Diabetes, or Pre-Diabetes need GTF Chromium.
Type 1 Diabetes is quite a different condition to Type 2 diabetes as in Type 1 Diabetes the body does not produce any insulin. New research shows the need for Chromium for those who have Type 1 Diabetes. Children just diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes were found to have very low levels of Chromium. GTF chromium given as a supplement not only helps insulin work, it also has a separate effect by acting like insulin to decrease blood sugars.
A study showed the Entire Katoa Food State form of GTF chromium reduced blood sugar levels by 16.8%, compared to only 6% with another chromium supplement.
Entire Katoa Food State supplements are research based with high absorption, low dose and high bio-availability. Available online at www.entirekatoa.co.nz.
Chromium is more effective when combined with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Zinc. These protective antioxidant nutrients and vitamin D and selenium are crucial to help prevent the damage diabetes causes.
Magnesium helps stabilise blood sugar levels too. Sugars cravings indicate low magnesium, you need more magnesium not more sugar!
New Zealand soils have low levels of magnesium, selenium, and zinc so the Entire Katoa Food State GFT Chromium 100 plus Antioxidant, Magnesium designed for NZ includes all of these minerals plus Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin D.
During your Naturopathic appointment diet, herbal medicine and lifestyle changes may also be recommended to improve your blood sugar levels.
