Chromium with High Active Red Beet Root is 9 time stronger, with 50mcg of elemental trivalent chromium (whole molecule is 500mcg). The ligand on each of the new trivalent chromium is a molecule of nicotinic acid – Niacin.
Chromium is well represented in scientific literature with findings on cardiovascular health, including blood sugar metabolism and weight loss support (Hua et al., 2012; Wright & Hunter, 2014; Kim, 2018; Nair, 2019).*
High Active beet root offers a standardized 10,000ppm plant nitrate, which the body converts to nitric oxides (McDonagh et al., 2019). Beets promote nitric oxide bioavailability, which is shown in research to relax blood vessel muscles and open up circulation. Beets are reputed to be heart healthy, enhancing phase II liver enzyme (our body detoxification pathway), weight loss, and energizing the body with more oxygen (Beals et al., 2017; Clifford et al., 2015).
