Cronimex® 3+ is a chromium supplement in its trivalent form (3+) with positive effects in carbohydrate metabolism.
Chromium is essential for protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Its a trace element described as ‘essential' because the body cannot make it and therefore must be obtained from the diet. However, even the diet cannot provide sufficient chromium, especially because cereal-based foods are often refined. In addition, levels of chromium tend to decline as we age and marginal deficiencies are not uncommon.
This new form of chromium has been formulated to preserve the chromium in its trivalent form (Cr3+), offering better consistency, and in particular, significantly improved bioavailability.
Crominex® 3+ is also effective at reducing fasting and post-prandial blood sugar levels, glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), hsCRP levels and microalbuminuria in diabetics. It is widely prescribed for type 2 diabetes, reducing micturition frequency, general weakness, dizziness, excessive appetite, tingling of the skin and arthralgia in diabetics. In addition, studies on moderately-arthritic dogs have shown that administering Crominex® 3+ reduces joint pain during manipulation of limbs and following physical exercise.
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 which prevent chromium in its trivalent state - a safe and effective state - from being oxidised into toxic Cr6+, by covering all the coordination sites of Cr3+. Amla is now also recognized for its effects in regulating blood sugar and complications of diabetes (particularly those of the kidneys), its beneficial effects thus complementing those of chromium.
Fulvic acid from PrimaVie (a patented and purified Shilajit extract) which acts as an effective support molecule and enables the Cr3+ to travel to insulin receptor sites, thus increasing chromium's bioavailability. Shilajit is also known to maintain and restore cellular energy levels by helping the mitochondria to convert fats and sugar into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), one of the body's two main sources of energy.
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+, while chromium picolinate and chromium nicotinate samples tested did contain it. Each vegetarian capsule provides 200 µg of trivalent chromium, 3mg of Capros (Phyllantus emblica) and 3 mg of PrimaVie® (shilajit extract). For optimal efficacy, one to two capsules a day of Crominex® 3+ is recommended, preferably with meals.

What’s the best time of day to take your dietary supplements in order to gain maximum benefit from them? Which ones should be taken with food and which in between meals? Here we address all your practical issues.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), two billion people across the world suffer from anemia, which means they’re deficient in iron. But when and why should you start taking iron supplements? Here we provide some possible answers.
In developed countries, the nutrients most often lacking in the diet are calcium, vitamin D, iron, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B12. Discover how such deficiencies can be easily addressed.
