Trophic’s patented Albion Chromium plus Vanadium, chelated with natural amino acids, provides superior biological activity or bioavailability and absorption. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that plays a critical role in the human system’s glucose tolerance factor (GTF) structure. This structure is responsible for balancing blood-sugar and insulin levels, which ensures a more efficient transportation system for glucose (fuel for metabolic processes) and amino acids into cellular structures. Vanadium, another trace mineral, has the ability to mimic the function of insulin and thus creates a powerful anabolic and stimulating effect. The addition of co-factors – Vit C, niacinamide, niacin and Vitamin B6 – provide all the raw materials necessary to increase the body’s production of the GTF structure and act as synergistic “catalysts,” enhancing the action of the two main minerals.
