the action of insulin (Glucose Tolerance Factor) and plays an
important role in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates.
an essential nutrient required for normal carbohydrate and
fat metabolism. Insufficient dietary intake of chromium leads to
signs and symptoms that are similar to those observed in diabetes
and cardiovascular diseases.
intake of chromium in the U.S and most industrialized
countries is suboptimal due to the extensive processing of our
foods. The estimated and safe daily intake for chromium is 50 to 200
micrograms. Most diets, however, contain less than 60% of the
minimum suggested intake. Supplemental chromium given to people with
impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes leads to improved blood
glucose, insulin, and lipid variables.
exercise, high sugar diets and physical trauma result in
high chromium losses and increase the need for chromium supplements.
Chromium has been also shown to improve lean body mass in humans and
significantly increased rate of growth was observed in a
group of malnourished children given a chromium supplement.
chromium is dependent upon the form and the amount of
supplemental chromium. Organic GTF is an excellent source of
biologically active chromium.
signs of chromium toxicity have been reported in the many
chromium supplementation studies over the past three decades.
Yeast is grown from special strains of yeast on natural
ingredients enriched with chromium. Primary grown high chromium
yeast is reported to have significantly greater level of
biologically active chromium than inorganic chromium.
Yeast is a biologically active form of chromium and is
better absorbed than inorganic chromium. High chromium yeast is the
preferred form of chromium for nutrition supplements.
TOLERANCE FACTOR Chromium is recognized as a trace element
essential for human nutrition and it must be obtained from the diet.
Chromium, as the central part of Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF),
enhances the effect of insulin in the body. This factor improves
glucose tolerance and insulin efficacy. Nutritecks Organic GTF
contains high levels of organic chromium that is available for GTF.
Tolerance Factor (GTF) has been shown to be related to
normal carbohydrate metabolism.
deficiency in humans leads to symptoms associated with
diabetes such as glucose intolerance, unexpected weight losses and
impaired nerve conduction.
deficiency occurs in older individuals, diabetics and those
consuming large amounts of carbohydrates and sugars. Chromium
supplements are suggested for those individuals.
requiring diabetics have been shown to have an abnormal
rate of chromium absorption. During the first 24 hours after a
single oral dose of chromium, the individuals absorbed two or more
times more chromium than normal subjects.
potentiates or enhances the action of insulin, it does not
replace insulin. With an optimum level of chromium in the body, less
insulin is required to keep glucose levels under control.
A study with
diabetics showed that inorganic chromium was ineffective in
improving glucose tolerance while a six month supplement of high
chromium yeast normalized the glucose tolerance as measured by the
glucose tolerance test.
Biologically active chromium supplements, such as high chromium
yeast, will decrease blood sugar of people with elevated
glucose values (hyperglycemic) and increase that of those with low
blood sugar (hypoglycemic).
ESSENTIAL TRACE ELEMENT
IN LIPID METABOLISM
in overall lipid metabolism, like those for glucose and insulin
variables, are dependent upon the amount of supplemental chromium.
Suboptimal chromium intake is associated with signs and symptoms of
chromium deficiency that are similar to those for cardiovascular
cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL)- and high
density lipoprotein (HDL) -cholesterol, total cholesterolIHDL
ratio, and triglycerides have all been shown to improve in humans as
well as animals following chromium supplementation.
supplementation of elderly subjects causes significant
decreases in total cholesterol with larger decreases in subjects
with the highest levels prior to supplementation.
supplementation in test group of men led to significant
decreases in serum triglycerides and increases in HDL-cholesterol
compared to placebo-treated subjects.

contains about 9 mg of molybdenum. Present in all tissues,
it is found mainly in the liver, kidneys, adrenal glands, bones, and
skin. It is important to several enzyme systems, most significantly
that of xanthine oxidase, which supports many functions, including
uric acid metabolism and mobilization of iron from the liver for
body use. Molybdenum is fairly easily absorbed in the
gastrointestinal tract, though it competes with copper at absorption
sites. It is eliminated through the urine and the bile.
Molybdenum is a vital part of
three important enzyme systems, xanthine oxidase, aldehyde oxidase,
and sulfite oxidase.It has a vital role in uric acid
formation and iron utilization, in carbohydrate metabolism, and
sulfite detoxification. In the soil and possibly in the body, as the
enzyme nitrate reductase, molybdenum can reduce the
production or counteract the actions of nitrosamines, known
cancer-causing chemicals, especially in the colon. Found more in
molybdenum-deficient soils, nitrosamines have been associated with
high rates of esophageal cancer.
(XO) helps in the production of uric acid, an end product
of protein (purine) metabolism. Though an excess of uric acid is
known to cause gout, recent studies show that, in proper
concentrations in the blood, it has antioxidant properties and helps
protect the cells and tissues from irritation and damage caused by
single oxygens and hydroxyl free radicals. Thus, uric acid has a new
image as being an important part of balanced human function and not
just a waste product. Xanthine oxidase may also help in the
mobilization of iron from liver reserves.
helps in the oxidation of carbohydrates and other aldehydes,
including acetaldehyde produced from ethyl alcohol.
Sulfite oxidase helps to
detoxify sulfurs in the body, particularly sulfites, which
are used to preserve food. These potentially toxic and harmful
substances can cause nausea or diarrhea and precipitate asthma
attacks in sensitive individuals.

to increased levels of nitrates and nitrosamines, which increase the
risk of cancer, especially in the esophagus and stomach.

IMPORTANT CONCEPTS ON ZINC ENRICHED YEAST
As the use of
nutritional supplements increase, there is a growing
consumer demand for more sophisticated information on the products
they are consuming. Some of the questions on Zinc Yeast concern the
importance of zinc in the diet, the bio-availability of organic Zinc

IMPORTANCE OF ZINC YEAST IN HUMAN DIET
is considerable evidence that zinc deficiency in humans is
a serious worldwide problem as a result of soil losses and losses in
food processing, this deficiency or depletion can produce a variety
of symptoms. Zinc is involved in a multitude of human body functions
and is part of many enzyme systems. Zinc is important in normal
growth and development, the maintenance of body tissues, sexual
function, the immune system, and detoxification of chemicals and

fairly non toxic, especially in amounts of less than
100-150 mg of elemental zinc daily. The Recommended Dietary
Allowance (RDA) for zinc in adults is 15 mg with additional amounts
needed during pregnancy and lactation (up to 25 mg). With
infections, burns, before or after surgery, in pregnancy, or with
aging, 50-75 mg of zinc per day is suggested as a therapeutic dose.
Groups at risk, such as growing children, pregnant women and elderly
people should have a higher zinc intake provided by dietary measures

Yeasts (of Saccharomyces cerevisiae) are widely used in
Beer and Wine Brewing, baking of foods such as bread and cookies and
in feeding of humans and animals. It is very important to emphasize
that yeasts are able to naturally metabolize inorganic minerals into
organic forms, similar to what plants do. Plants do the conversion
for us taking the minerals from the soil. Mineral enriched yeasts do
this by taking the minerals from enriched molasses providing one of
the best natural food forms of minerals human can consume.
Furthermore, yeasts have an excellent storage mechanism for
B-vitamins , as do other organisms, for factors needed for growth
and life. Yeast is a naturally rich source of proteins, minerals and
B-complex vitamins. Not only does mineral enriched yeast offer a
natural form of mineral, it also provides other nutrients when
