Product Overview

Description
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

UltraChrome is Thorne's patented chromium product, consisting of chromium arginate and chromium 4-oxopyridine, 2,6-dicarboxylate. Compared to other chromium compounds, including chromium picolinate, this combination of chromium chelates appears to have the highest bioavailability.

In an in vitro study testing glucose uptake by adipocytes, chromium 4-oxopyridine, 2,6-dicarboxylate was shown to have the highest tissue levels and biopotency. Chromium arginate was the most effective at enhancing the action of insulin at the cellular level.

Although much of the research on chromium has examined amounts given in the range of 500 mcg twice daily, Thorne Research also offers UltraChrome in a 200-mcg capsule. Individual situations that might determine the need for a lower amount of chromium could include use in children, in pregnancy, or in conjunction with another supplement that contains chromium.

Chromium is an essential nutrient for human life and is widely distributed in small quantities in food; however, the refining of flour and sugar has depleted chromium levels in many foods. Metabolic stress, strenuous exercise, and pregnancy can all increase chromium needs. Studies suggest adequate chromium intake supports already normal blood glucose levels, insulin sensitivity, and sperm count.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Aspartic acid, hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.
