Clinical studies on GTF chromium (chromium yeast) have found significant clinical effects at lower doses than in studies using chelated or salt-based chromium. The data indicates that food-form chromium yeast may yield increased levels of absorption of chromium over a long period of time, making it the superior form for supplementation.
GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor) is a compound the liver can use to produce fatty acids, lecithin, cholesterol, and lipoproteins. And that’s only half the story.
Supporting healthy blood sugar levels, promoting energy production by helping transport glucose to cells, and stabilizing appetite for healthy weight management are just three more amazing things GTF Chromium can do for you.
Chromium is a micronutrient with clinical doses below 1mg. When working with such small amounts, a consistent mineral potency in the raw material is critical!

Inorganic chromium salts are associated with a lower bioavailability in tissues and circulation over the long term compared to food forms, despite their more rapid rate of initial absorption. Based on the excretion dynamics of chromium, rapidly absorbed chromium salts may not contribute to tissue chromium status like food forms.
The limitations in bioavailability of chromium, along with the discovery that GTF and food-bound chromium may be better absorbed into the body’s tissues, led to the development of yeast fortified with chromium (GTF chromium) as a more bioavailable form of chromium.
Our chromium product is bound by a yeast fermentation process (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that mimics the way plants organically bind minerals into membranes and protein structures, so you get a food-form mineral your body can actually absorb. This method creates a product that is 20-50 times richer in whole-food forms of chromium complex than other forms of GTF. Chromium any other way just doesn’t make sense.
