regulating carbohydrate and lipid metabolism by enhancing the efficacy of insulin.2 Chromium may improve insulin sensitivity and facilitate glucose utilisation.3 It is maintained in the bloodstream bound to the protein transferrin.2 Chromium is involved in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism and is a fundamental component in healthy glucose utilisation and glycaemic control by aiding cellular glucose uptake. People with high intake of dietary sugar and refined carbohydrates have an increased requirement for chromium. Both picolinate and chloride forms are supported in clinical trials, and using a mix maximises availability and allows for higher dosages. 4,5\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eManganese\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eManganese is an essential nutrient required for a variety of metabolic functions including the functioning of antioxidant enzymes involved in reducing free radicals formed in the body. Inadequate intake of manganese can lead to the impaired metabolism of carbohydrates. 6 Manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) is the main antioxidant enzyme found in the mitochondria. The mitochondria is particularly vulnerable to oxidative stress. During ATP production in the mitochondria, the superoxide radicals – a reactive oxygen species (ROS) – are created. MnSOD provides the catalyst for the conversion of superoxide radicals to hydrogen pyroxide, which then allows other antioxidant enzymes to reduce it to water for easy excretion.7\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVitamins B3 and B5\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVitamins B3 and B5 act as coenzymes in the enzymatic processes involved in mitochondrial energy production. Pantothenic acid (B5) provides the main substrate for the citric acid cycle through the formation of Acetyl-CoA. Both B3 and B5 are precursors of the enzymatic reactions to form NADH and FADH which transfers the energy created by the citric acid cycle to the electron transport chain resulting in the production of ATP and energy for cells.8\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6)\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVitamin B6 is a cofactor in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and melatonin. Even mild deficiency can result in low mood, disordered sleep and reduced hypothalamus-pituitary control of hormone excretion.8 Pyridoxal phosphate (PLP) is the biologically active form of the vitamin that functions as an enzyme cofactor. In energy metabolism, PLP plays a role in generating glucose from amino acids, a process known as gluconeogenesis.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eWarnings\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eWarnings: Blackmores Professional Bio-Chromium Plus\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVitamins and minerals can only be of assistance if dietary intake is inadequate.

Magnesium and zinc may decrease the absorption and efficacy of tetracycline and quinolone antibiotics. Administer Blackmores Bio-Chromium Plus at least two hours apart from these medications. Absorption of vitamin B12 may be decreased by clofibrate, sulphonamides, PABA, colchicine, neomycin, metformin, phenformin, primidone, pyrimethamine, ranitidine and sodium nitroprusside. Folic acid may decrease the efficacy of methotrexate and other folic acid antagonists. The efficacy of folic acid may be decreased by co-trimoxazole, sulphasalazine, phenytoin, phenobarbitone, primidon and methotrexate\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eReferences\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eReferences: Blackmores Professional Bio-Chromium Plus\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003col\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eLiu, L., Cui, W.
