Biotin and chromium...not very well known as far as vitamins and minerals go. But oh, so VERY important. I learned this today as I came across yet another blog called Total Health Breakthroughs. The site is jam packed with articles on weight loss, nutrition - you name it, and yes, it will be permanently added to my sidebar.
The two minerals mentioned above are actually necessary for managing blood sugar levels. More important than exercising, according to THB, ensuring that your body is not deficient of vitamins and minerals is key for weight management, however, the majority of Americans are deficient in many vitamins and minerals. This is due in large part to soda consumption, and processed foods. Neither of which are on the food chain, but contribute greatly to the epidemic of obesity. If you sincerely want to lose weight, or your health demands it for survival, cut soda and processed foods, food dyes from your diet and see the pounds come off. Cut white/simple carbs and processed sugars and watch the weight melt off! (Even without exercise!)
Back to today's minerals - biotin and chromium - both are vital for controlling blood sugar and are crucial for the diabetic. Biotin is a B complex vitamin and helps your body use insulin; chromium, on the other hand, enhances the action of insulin. Together, they are your first line of defense in keeping blood sugar levels steady. The pair regulates the metabolism of fat and carbs in the diet, making sure you use up blood glucose at the cellular level, rather than storing them as fat.
The two minerals are obviously quite important, but most of us are quite lacking. Fortunately, AB Daily Essentials supplements provides all that one needs of these two minerals in a daily power pack. I love learning and discovering more and more about the products I am blessed to offer, especially when it the information comes from a source outside the company. It simply affirms what I already know - AB Essentials are pure, safe and BENEFICIAL!
