Glucose metabolism in the brain is associated with cognitive function and mood
A NUMBER OF STUDIES CONTRIBUTED TO A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF CHROMIUM PICOLINATE’S ROLE IN BRAIN NEUROTRANSMISSION AND ITS CONNECTION TO INSULIN METABOLISM. OTHER STUDIES HAVE UNCOVERED KEY INSIGHTS INTO THE BENEFICIAL ROLE CHROMIUM PICOLINATE SUPPLEMENTATION PLAYS IN THE METABOLIC AND BIOCHEMICAL PATHWAYS OF THE BRAIN.
Proper cognitive function, such as memory, perception and cognition, requires a constant supply of glucose to the brain. As a result, low levels of glucose can lead to a breakdown in cognitive function and have a harmful effect on overall brain health by significantly reducing brain glucose transporters.
Nutrition 21’s Chromax® chromium picolinate supports brain glucose transmitter function and contributes to improved glucose metabolism, significantly affecting a healthy mood and cognitive function.
Building on pioneering research at both the University of North Carolina and Duke University, published studies have shown that chromium supplementation helped support a healthy mood.
In addition, research has shown that Chromax® chromium picolinate supports cognitive function, learning, recall, recognition and memory tasks. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted at the University of Cincinnati demonstrated that daily supplementation of 1000 mcg of chromium as Chromax® chromium picolinate helped improve cognitive function.
