Chrome and diabetes

Most of us like chrome finish many household items. But where people are working in contact with chromium and forced to breathe chrome dust, they, unfortunately, in 29 times more likely than other inhabitants of those places, and 11 times more likely than workers in other industries, sick lung cancer or bronchi.
Still, chrome, this dangerous when it too much, our body is also required. Of course, in certain doses. Today it is considered the norm about 150 mcg per day. It is especially useful for older people, the body which is bad metabolizes carbohydratesand chromium enhances the processes of exchange with these compounds. It was discovered that certain chromium compound called GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor), facilitates the absorption of glucose, or rather, its penetration through the membrane into the cells.
Inorganic chromium poorly absorbed, much easier - in organic compounds, i.e., in the form in which it is in living organisms (plants he discovered in 1911, and in every life - only in 1948). However, our body can produce GTF, but in very small amounts, regardless of whether in the body chrome and in what quantity.
Experiments have shown that if the organism of rats little chromium, level of cholesterol and sugar in the blood, and fatty substances deposited on the joints of the aorta. When rats finish feeding this item, the level of cholesterol and sugar in blood decreases. Similarly acts and vitamin B6 (as confirmed by experiments on monkeys).
In healthy people, the content of chromium is slightly above the norm. This is a sign of full assimilation of glucose. If the absorption of Sugars violated, the content of this element is reduced.
Too much chrome is usually around factories and in industrial areas, where due to the absence of a good system of dust-collecting this metal in large quantities carried in the air.
Asthma, which suffered Japanese workers cement plants, recognized occupational disease, because chrome contained in copper dust and other residues, has the property to cause this disease.
Dr. Edward Kopecky in his work "the Role of glutathione (Tripeptide) in education cataract eye" (1973, University of Qualif, Canada) reports that chromium (1 mg a day), zinc (50 mg daily) and cysteine (5 mg daily) prevent cataracts and treat it. But for chromium and zinc should be associated with amino acids and thus to pass in a digestible form. Lack of chromium - it is especially important to know the people of the senior age - filled healthy, not treated industrial methods of food, and yeast.
Chrome really needs to patients with diabetes, he cooperates with insulin, helping to regulate the level of sugar or glucose in the blood. Despite the fact that the resulting synthetic GTF, it is better to prefer natural chromium contained in the yeast - rich its source, as more effective. In addition, biologically active chromium is found in black pepper, veal liver and sprouted wheat grains.
But the sources of chromium - for those who have too little.
The excellent sources: brewer's yeast, liver.
Sources are good: the potatoes in their skins, beef, fresh vegetables, bread from wheat flour, cheese, chicken legs.
The sources of the poor: pasta, cereals, skim milk, butter, margarine, sugar.
It should be added that pregnant women, and lactating women, diabetics, alcoholics, people over 45 years of age, and convalescents after fractures, operations, etc., should Supplement their diet and chromium. Every day they have to take 12-16 tablets beer yeast or 3 tablespoons of the same yeast powder.
