Chromium, the metallic element once believed to be toxic, is now generally recognized as playing an important role in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in those within normal levels when used as part of a healthy diet.123-125 This most recent version includes Crominex® 3+ with standardized extract of Indian gooseberry and a proprietary form of the adaptogen shilajit for even greater support of heart health and healthy blood sugar levels already within normal range.
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.126,127 To provide full-spectrum benefits, antioxidants and gene-protecting nutrients like curcumin, trans-resveratrol, and green tea have been included.128,129 A recent study suggested that chromium, together with vitamins C and E, is effective for minimization of oxidative stress and improvement of glucose metabolism for those within normal range.130
