Through extensive research in humans and animals trivalent chromium has been found to be an essential nutrient for optimal body functions. Chromium enhances the action of insulin and therefore aids in the regulation of blood sugars in the body. This allows for sustained energy, increased lean muscle mass, and a possible reduction of insulin shots in diabetic patients. “The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) found that many middle-age diabetics can overcome their symptoms by taking a chromium supplement. The USDA’s findings suggest that very low chromium intakes may be putting millions of Americans on the road to diabetes (and high blood cholesterol) and that the process could be reversed simply by supplementing with chromium.” (Robert M. Hackman, 1991).
Cardiovascular health is another documented benefit of chromium supplementation. There is a significant amount of research showing that low levels of chromium in the body may be one of the primary risk factors for cardiovascular disease. “The data, reported in numerous studies over the past 30 years, suggest that chromium may help reduce the risk of heart disease and help prevent the buildup of plaque in arteries by lowering harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and increasing beneficial high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.” (Robert M. Hackman, 1991).
While many nutritional supplements may contain trace amounts of chromium it is generally not enough for the body to use, furthermore, some forms of chromium are more effective and safe than others. Our MiraChrome, chromium supplement, delivers all the benefits without any negative side-effects. It’s completely natural and safe. For the past twelve years we have manufactured MiraChrome for horses and ponies. The extraordinary results caused us to branch out to provide our customers with a product appropriate for dogs and cats. Although we were previously not manufacturing MiraChrome for humans, some of our customers were sharing with their pets and getting documented improvement of their blood sugar levels. So now we are bringing MiraChrome to the dietary supplement market for humans. While MiraChrome can help, it is not a total solution; no single nutrient can work in a vacuum. Proper nutrition is key to the potential therapeutic action of MiraChrome.
