Crominex® 3+ is a chromium supplement with high bioavailability.
Crominex® 3+ is a chromium supplement in its trivalent form (3+). The primary benefit of Crominex 3 Plus is its ability to help the body metabolize carbohydrates, but there are others. Below are more details related to all the benefits of taking chromium capsules, as well as information related to side effects.
Chromium is essential for protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism. It's considered an essential trace element because the body cannot produce it on its own, and therefore must be obtained from the diet.
However, it can be difficult to consume enough chromium-rich foods, especially because cereal-based foods are often refined. This makes a chromium nutritional supplement, such as Crominex® 3+, a great choice for those looking to boost their chromium intake.
What is crominex 3, and how does it differ from chromium? Crominex® 3+ is a trivalent chromium supplement created in an aqueous process to retain the active principles of chromium with polyphenol and fulvic acid. This process offers optimized chromium with Crominex® 3+ to assist bioavailability and chromium absorption to obtain the best chromium supplement benefits.
This new form of optimized chromium with crominex 3 has been formulated to preserve the chromium in its trivalent form (Cr3+), offering better consistency, and in particular, significantly improved bioavailability. Chromium micronutrients and crominex 3 benefits include:
Crominex® 3 studies have shown benefits in tandem with fish oil supplementation that includes reducing oxidative stress and supporting healthy levels of sugar, fat, and cholesterol in blood vessels and circulation. In addition, a study on efficacy with moderately-arthritic dogs administered Crominex® 3+ found a reduction in joint pain during manipulation of limbs and following physical exercise.
While further research is needed, a study examining the molecular mechanisms of chromium found chromium may improve blood sugar sensitivity by assisting with hypoglycemia signaling, enhance activated protein kinase (AMPK) responses for cellular energy sensors, and combat oxidative stress.
Animal studies on chromium supplementation and growth performance noted an implied benefit of chromium supplementation. Chromium supplementation may augment and increase support of cellular function for responsive glucose transporters (GLUT4) in muscle cells. This effect of organic chromium on protein synthesis and glucose uptake suggests potential improvement in glucose metabolism and amino acid uptake in muscle cells, specifically.
Studies on the effect of chromium picolinate on food intake and satiety for both human and animal studies showed reduced hunger levels and fat cravings, reduced food intake, and a tendency toward weight loss. While further studies are needed to understand the mechanism of chromium that supports these benefits, the role of food intake regulation of CrPic may have a direct impact on the brain.
Crominex® 3+ is obtained through an entirely aqueous process which enables all its active principles to be retained and is guaranteed to be completely free of toxic Cr6+. Tests have produced traces of Cr6+ in other types of chromium, including chromium picolinate and chromium nicotinate. Crominex® 3+ is a stable blend obtained by reacting chromium with the following ingredients:
Polyphenol antioxidant compounds in Capros, a patented fruit extract of Phyllanthus Emblica, also known as Amla (Indian gooseberry). These polyphenol compounds are excellent antioxidant ligands that prevent chromium in its trivalent state — a safe and effective state — from being oxidized into toxic Cr6+, by covering all the coordination sites of Cr3+. Amla fruit research has recognized it for its effects in regulating blood sugar, and therefore, complementing the beneficial effects of chromium.
Fulvic acid from PrimaVie (a patented and purified Shilajit extract) acts as an effective support molecule and enables the Cr3+ to travel to hypoglycemic receptor sites, thus increasing chromium's bioavailability.
Before starting a new supplement regimen and taking Crominex® 3+, you need to do the necessary research on chromium supplement side effects, and should also speak with your primary care provider. Before taking chromium supplements for weight loss, or for the benefits of chromium and blood sugar regulation, you should discuss your current medications, treatments, and supplement regimen with your doctor to ensure there won’t be any negative drug interactions.
Chromium dietary supplement benefits are intended for healthy adults looking to increase their overall wellness and are not intended for children. If you are currently under treatment for a medical condition, pregnant, lactating, or may become pregnant in the near future, speak with your licensed medical health practitioner to discover if taking Crominex® 3+ chromium supplements is right for you.
If you notice any side effects once you start taking Crominex® 3+ supplements, stop taking them immediately and consult with your primary care provider.
Only resume taking chromium for appetite suppressant benefits, weight loss, or blood sugar regulation, after your doctor has approved you to begin taking it again.
|Daily dose: 2 capsules
Number of doses per pack: 60
|Amount per dose|
|Crominex® 3+ [providing 400 mcg of trivalent chromium, 6 mg of Capros® (Phyllanthus emblica) and 6 mg of PrimaVie® (shilajit extract)]||20 mg|
|Other ingredients: Acacia gum, rice flour.|
Each vegetarian chromium capsule provides 200 µg of trivalent chromium, 3mg of Capros (Phyllanthus Emblica), and 3 mg of PrimaVie® (shilajit extract). For optimal efficacy, we recommend taking one or two Crominex® 3+ capsules a day, preferably with meals.
One bottle of Crominex® 3+ contains 120 capsules. With a chromium supplement regime of one to two capsules a day, your bottle should last between two and four months. Do not take Chromium supplements that have exceeded their expiration date. Instead, dispose of them properly and purchase a new bottle. Store your Crominex® 3+ bottle in a cool dark place away from children and pets.
