Aliness Chromium GTF is a dietary supplement which is a source of chromium from the fermentation process of nutritional yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). This form of the element is characterized mainly by very high bioavailability and safety of the usage.
Chromium is an element of great biological significance for the human body. It is one of the microelements necessary for the proper functioning of the system. Its presence has been found, among others, in active sites of numerous enzymes and in the so-called glucose tolerance factor (GTF). We are also attributing chromium the role of coenzyme in numerous important metabolic reactions.
A unique form of chromium
Most chromium supplements contain organic chromium salts (mainly picolinate) or its inorganic forms (chromium chloride). The source of chromium in the presented preparation are yeasts (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), which during the process of controlled fermentation were fed, among others, with this mineral, which made it possible to build it into their structure. As research shows, the chromium from the yeast is very well absorbed and has excellent bioavailability. It should also be remembered that apart from chromium, such a complex of yeasts may also contain other, very desirable compounds naturally occurring in nutritional yeasts, such as amino acids, vitamins, fibre and glutathione.
Effects of chromium on glucose-insulin metabolism
Chromium supports the metabolism of macronutrients (especially carbohydrates) and helps maintain blood glucose levels in a normal range. The exact mechanism of this action is yet unknown. It is probably related to the active form of this element, the so-called chromodulin, which can bind to an insulin receptor located on the inside of the cell wall, thus promoting the effective transport of compound to the cell. Studies show that chromium deficiency may result in abnormal glucose tolerance.
To sum up, Aliness Chromium GTF is a dietary enrichment supplement with easily absorbed and highly bioavailable chromium. It is best suited for people with a deficiency of chromium, although it may also be useful for lovers of a high-carbohydrate diet to support its possible side-effects.
Chromium supplementation is sometimes recommended for people who cannot cope with an excessive appetite for sweet food. In addition, some studies show a positive correlation between increasing the intake of chromium and losing excess weight. It is worth knowing, however, that mentioned study concerned obese women, so they would especially benefit from supplementation in the form of losing excess weight.

Chromium (chemical element from transition group of the chromium, chemically active) is actively involved in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It comes in the easily assimilable organic form and inorganic. Along with insulin, as a component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), is used in insulin-dependent diabetes treatment, insulin involved in the metabolism of glucose in t proteins transport. Activator of enzymes involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol. Available in animal origin products (liver, veal, chicken, turkey meat, oysters) and plant-origin (bananas, broccoli, cereal, wheat germ, spinach). Supplements containing chromium are recommended for fat loss (also thermogenic), and improving the functioning of the body. The sports supplementation used chromium in the form of mono-preparations or in the form of vitamin-mineral minerals supplements.
Chromium deficiency results in impaired glucose, reducing the insulin sensitivity. It causes a decrease in immunity and endurance of the body. It may be a cause of coronary heart disease. Sometimes it causes neurological disorders.
Dosage: A varied diet prevents from the deficiency of chromium in the body.
Dosage: The recommended dose of 50-150 mg per day.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae – yeasts from the group of monocellular fungi, commonly used by the researchers as test material, because of its small environment requirements. They are also popular in food industry.
The yeasts show health-promoting properties and are a good substitute for offal in vegetarian diet. They are a good source for vitamins, particularly B-vitamins. They have also positive influence on the condition of bacterial microflora, as they improve the functioning of intestinal barrier.
In dietary supplements and drugs, they are used mainly as a support for the functioning of the digestive system. They are also present in products improving the quality of skin, hair and nails, however the newest research suggests that the influence on these tissues results from the influence on the microbiota.
