PRO GTF

Feeling tired? Got those dreaded afternoons drugs ? Do you need to rest far too often ?_Chances are you have one of the most prevalent disorders of modern humanity : Glucose Intolerance, popularly called "Sugar Blues ",referring to that down-in-the -dumps feeling which occurs because your cells simply aren't getting enough sugar to keep you going properly. Because of the prevalence of highly refined foods in our diet , this condition has now reached epidemic proportions world-wide. One of the main reasons for this is that refining removes the important trace element Chromium.

Diabetes and Hypoglycemia

These days almost everyone is aware of the crucial importance of Insulin. This essential hormone is produced in the pancreas, and what it actually does is to "escort" the blood sugar to the cells where it will be used as fuel. Actually, the blood sugar level can be quite high, but if it doesn't have an escort it will never reach the cells where it will be used as fuel. But even if there is an abundance of insulin, there are often problems, because the escorts needs a partner. That's right; insulin alone isn't enough-it needs the further assistance of Chromium. Because of the fact that biologically active Chromium can restore glucose level to normal, it was named the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) when it was discovered by Dr. Kalus Schwarz, M.D. in 1969 This Science, and resulted in the widespread use of GTF as the supplement of choice for many savvy naturopaths dealing with hypoglycemia and mild diabetes.

In the U.S.A. the National Commission of Diabetes reported that in 1975 diabetes was the nation's third ranking cause of death and the number of sufferers were increasing at the rate of 5 to 6 percent per year, doubling the number of diabetics every 15 years! Realizing that this tragedy could be alleviated and even reversed, many mainstream doctors have now turned to GTF Chromium. Unlike pharmaceutical insulin or anti-diabetic drugs, GTF potentiates the action of internally produced insulin secreted in response to psychological needs. This has now been proven in clinical trials conducted by doctors such as Esther Offenbacher of Columbia University, New York. We at Pro Health are proud of the excellent results achieved by doctors using our own special GTF Chromium. As it is molecularly bonded to the food matrix, our GTF has a significant advantage, and doctors have found it useful even in intractable cases of diabetes.

Heart Disease and Atherosclerosis

Wait! There's still plenty more to tell of the miraculous story of the mighty little micronutrient, GTF! It can also be a powerful deterrent of heart disease and atherosclerosis. This has now been confirmed by a whole host of doctors, like Dr. Richard Doisy of the State University of New York Upstate Medical Center, who reported results of a 16% lowering of cholesterol in a test group over a one-month period. In addition, doctors now concur that GTF supplementation can reduce the arterial plaque formation which includes blood clotting, eventually resulting in a heart attack. An American doctor name Rebecca Riales has demonstrated that this is due to the fact that regular intake of GTF increases the level of "HDL" in the blood. These are the carriers which scavenge excess cholesterol out of the body.

Building Stronger Bodies

Studies carried out by Minnesota State University, U.S.A. reported that Chromium can help in gaining and maintaining healthy muscle tissue while on a training programme.

Doctors in America are now recommending Chromium as a muscle-builder, and a safe legal alternative to harmful steroids. As well as building muscles, Chromium has the function of decreasing body fat, so that regular use will result in more strength and a trimmer waistline. Therefore it is also recommended as a healthy adjunct to those on a diet.
