Blood Sugar/Metabolic Study

The inability to regulate blood sugar within normal ranges over time leads to a condition called insulin resistance. This condition can have devastating effects on the body, and scientists have linked insulin resistance to various forms of cancer, heart disease, obesity, and even kidney and respiratory disorders. The good news is that prudent diet and lifestyle choices can greatly reduce your risk of these health conditions. In addition, some studies have shown that chromium supplementation can improve insulin resistance and allow a tighter (more healthy) regulation of blood sugar.

The purpose of this study is the examine the effects of a patented form of chromium on biomarkers of blood sugar regulation, cholesterol levels, waist and hip circumference and food cravings.

The Center for Applied Health Sciences is looking for 80 men and women (25-65 yr) to complete the study. Qualified participants will receive up to $600 in compensation for their time and successful completion of the study.
