Chromium is also provided in a significant level byWeight-Less. This essential trace mineral, andvanadium as well, potentiate insulin action and thusinfluence carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism.In its biologically active form, sometimes calledglucose tolerance factor (GTF) from brewer's yeast,chromium is associated with nicotinic acid (vitaminB-3). Chromium polynicotinate closely resembles thebrewer's yeast GTF in both biological activity andchemical composition as it also contains chromiumassociated with nicotinic acid. Chromiumpolynicotinate is yeast-free and has documented highbioavailability. The typical dietary chromium intakein the U.S. can vary considerably depending oneating habits. Most self-selected diets contain lessthan 50 mcg per day, which is below the minimum ofthe Estimated Safe and Adequate Daily DietaryIntake established by the National Research Council,Food and Nutrition Board.
