ChroMist by Molecular Biologics - MBi Nutraceuticals
Molecular Biologics is excited to introduce ChroMist a proprietary blend of minerals and vitamins proven to assist healthy blood glucose levels and insulin sensitivity. ChroMist is a bio-available sublingual spray that combines SoluChrome liquid chromium nicotinate, vanadium, pyridoxine, folic acid, and vitamin B12 in a refreshing mint flavor.
SoluChrome is a proprietary formulation of liquid chromium nicotinate that is absorbed instantly in the mouth. SoluChrome is the most bio-available chromium supplement on the market. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that aids in glucose metabolism, regulation of insulin levels, and maintenance of healthy blood levels of cholesterol and other lipids. Chromium forms part of a compound in the body known as glucose tolerance factor, which is involved in regulating the actions of insulin in maintaining blood sugar levels and in helping to control appetite.1
Chromium deficiency contributes to insulin resistance in many people. It is estimated that 90% of Americans consume less than the recommended amount of chromium each day. In diabetic and overweight individuals, chromium supplements have been shown to reduce triglyceride levels by almost 20%, improve glucose tolerance, and normalize insulin levels.2 Also, the urinary excretion of chromium is known to increase in people who exercise, suggesting that active people and athletes may have higher dietary requirements for chromium. Supplements of 400 mcg have helped overweight women lose about 50% more fat in 3 months compared to a placebo group.3
Vanadium is an essential trace mineral that plays a role in metabolism of carbohydrates and has functions in cholesterol and blood lipid metabolism. Vanadium supplements have been shown to normalize blood glucose levels and reduce glycosylated hemoglobin levels in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.4
B Vitamins help the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose (sugar), which is burned to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B complex vitamins, are essential in the breakdown of fats and protein. Pyridoxine (B6) is an especially important vitamin for maintaining healthy nerve and muscle cells and it aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body s genetic material. It is necessary for proper absorption of vitamin B12 and for the production of red blood cells and cells of the immune system. Folic Acid (B9) works closely with vitamins B6 and B12 as well as the nutrients betaine and S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) to control blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine.5 Vitamin B12 has primary functions in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. B12 is necessary for the rapid synthesis of DNA during cell division. B12 plays a vital role in the metabolism of fatty acids essential for the maintenance of myelin, the insulating sheath that surrounds nerves.6
