UltraChrome is Thornes patented chromium product, consisting of chromium arginate and chromium 4-oxopyridine, 2, 6-dicarboxylate. Compared to other chromium compounds, including chromium picolinate, this combination of chromium chelates appears to have the highest bioavailability.*

In an in vitro study testing glucose uptake by adipocytes, chromium 4-oxopyridine, 2, 6-dicarboxylate chelidamate was shown to have the highest tissue levels and biopotency.* Chromium arginate was the most effective at enhancing the action of insulin at the cellular level.*

Chromium is an essential nutrient for human life and is widely distributed in small quantities in food; however, the refining of flour and sugar has depleted chromium levels in many foods. Metabolic stress, strenuous exercise, and pregnancy can all increase chromium needs.* Studies suggest adequate chromium intake supports already normal blood glucose levels, insulin sensitivity, and sperm count.*
