The Irish are on their way to becoming the most obese in Europe. Eating a healthy diet and maintaining stable blood sugar levels seems more relevant than ever, and this is where chromium fits nicely into the picture.
Ireland is predicted to become the most obese country in Europe, together with the UK, according to a new study that is published in the Lancet. By 2025, the authors predict that 37 per cent of Irish women and 38% of Irish men will be obese. Nearly 20 per cent of the world’s obese adults currently live in Ireland and five other high-income English-speaking countries, and the number of obese people in the world has increased from 105 million (1975) to 641 million (2014).
Think of your health
Being overweight or, worse yet, obese is not only a cosmetic issue, it seriously compromises your health. Overweight individuals face the risk of metabolic syndrome (or Syndrome X) with symptoms such as
• High blood pressure
• High triglycerides
• Low HDL and high LDL cholesterol
• Excess belly fat (visceral fat)
• Elevated blood sugar
Left untreated, metabolic syndrome increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Chromium keeps your blood sugar stable
One of the best ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid these conditions is by making sure to keep your blood sugar levels within the normal range. This is where chromium comes into the picture. Studies show that chromium helps to maintain stable blood sugar levels, which makes it a useful nutrient to supplement with.
Why organic chromium yeast?
Chromium contributes to the maintenance of stable blood sugar levels. Put differently, the nutrient plays a role in keeping blood sugar levels in their normal range. This is important for ensuring normal metabolism of macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrate) and ensuring that the body is able to convert what you eat into energy.
Scientific studies of different chromium types show that some chromium sources are absorbed better than others. According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), ChromoPrecise is absorbed up to 10 times better than synthetic chromium types like chromium picolinate and chromium chloride.
ChromoPrecise, which is the chromium source used in Chromium Pharma Nord, is the only organic chromium yeast in the EU.
