GTF Chromium is a trace mineral that works with insulin response to support healthy blood sugar. It is important for the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) and the support of normal insulin activity.  Perfect for horses with elevated blood sugar that do not respond to a low sugar/starch diet.

GTF Chromium Yeast is for performance horses on high grain intakes or horses with elevated blood sugar that do not respond to a low sugar/starch diet and require support to maintain normal metabolic function. It is an excellent source of Chromium to help support healthy glucose tolerance and normal blood sugar levels. Chromium is most likely to be deficient in hays grown on alkaline soils.

Chromium is a trace mineral that works with insulin to regulate blood sugar. Insulin’s primary function is to stimulate the transport of sugar from the bloodstream to the cell. Chromium helps metabolize sugar by facilitating its uptake into the cells.

Research has shown that Chromium supplementation to horses on high grain diets improves the clearance of sugar from the blood after meals and also increases the metabolism of glucose inside the cells.*

Chromium does not improve insulin sensitivity, but it can help maintain normal blood glucose levels.
