Ultra Chromium GTF Addresses the Following Body Systems:
Every second of our lives, billions of biochemical reactions are taking place in our bodies. New molecules are produced and spent as old ones are broken down and disposed of. Our metabolism is a massive, complex, yet perfectly orchestrated system of energy that enables us to survive and thrive. In almost every chemical reaction in the body, a spark is needed to energize the reaction. This spark is provided by adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the energy molecule. It is fundamental to our physiology.
Our modern, “on the go” diet of processed, unnatural junk foods is overwhelming our bodies. Drastic increases in refined carbohydrates and sugars have led to health concerns unheard of even a generation ago. Increased blood glucose can lead to excess body weight and inefficient use of insulin... all are part of a spiraling, self-perpetuating cycle that is highly challenging to health. Through this cycle, increased blood sugar can lead to reactions like inflammation and glycation. Excess inflammation is an underlying imbalance that can affect cells and tissues and lead to concerns about our health. Glycation occurs when excess blood sugar binds with protein to produce Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs), compounds that impact healthy cells. Many nutritional supplements can increase insulin efficiency and help maintain blood sugar in a normal range.
Metabolism / Hormones
At any moment, millions of biochemical reactions are taking place in or around our nearly 100 trillion cells. To function at high levels of health, our metabolism is constantly binding molecules together and breaking them apart. In a way, our health is a function of the ease, speed, and coordination of these myriad reactions, processes named methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation, and sulfation. Hormones are messengers that tell the body to begin its various physiological activities, such as growth or sexual development. Hormones are produced in our glands and are often triggered by the brain. They are part of the intricate mechanism that makes us humans with unique personalities.
The heart is a muscle that must contract without missing a beat about every second of our lives. The cardiovascular system’s importance to our health goes beyond the critical function of supplying food and oxygen to all the cells. The blood transports hormones and other messenger molecules that signal the coordination of numerous critical functions, and through the white blood cells, the circulatory system is the site of significant immune protection. Numerous factors can impact circulatory health: the oxidation of molecules, cholesterol levels, homocysteine buildup, fibrin viscosity, lack of nitric oxide, capillary and blood vessel strength and integrity, metabolic inflammation, and energy generation for a heartbeat. Maintaining these and other functions is an intricate balancing act. That balance can be provided by the intelligent use of nutrition.
About Source Naturals
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
