Modern biochemistry tells us that trace minerals zinc, manganese, boron, vanadium, molybdenum, strontium, silicon, iron, chromium and selenium are essential to health. Our biochemistry expects to find them in plant foods. Human digestion adapted to the task of extracting phyto (plant) minerals over the course of millions of years of evolution.
Of Primary Concern
Our body’s ability to manage the metabolism of carbohydrate and fat, two of the three macro nutrients, relies on Chromium. Biochemical sequelae following carbohydrate metabolism can also influence the handling of protein, the third macro nutrient. As a result, Chromium can be viewed as a foundational trace nutrient: One that supports sound health from the point where nutrients first arrive (after a meal is consumed), in circulation, and in the liver’s processing plant. It is there that so many biochemicals essential to life are manufactured, and Chromium is often involved in the process.
A new technology has been successfully developed with the goal to overcome the inherent low bioavailability of most supplemental minerals. The cruciferous plant, Indian mustard, (Brassica juncea) is now hydroponically cultivated in such a way that it hyperaccumulates minerals into natural, organic complexes that the human body may more easily absorb. Unexcelled safety and natural bioavailability are the hallmarks of Phytominerals bound into organic complexes composed of proteins, carbohydrates and other food factors in the stem and leaves of the plant. Such compounds are ideally matched to, and recognized by the human digestive tract.
A Very Unique Process - Hyperaccumulation
Scientists control all nutrients fed to the plants using advanced hydroponic techniques to yield a consistent, standardized mineral content in the Brassica juncea plant itself. Harvested plants require no additional processing other than drying and milling to a fine powder.
Vibrant Health’s Phyto-Chromium is:
A good source of antioxidants, indoles and isothiocyanates
Standardized in mineral content
Free from contaminants
Safe for human consumption
Minerals are difficult to absorb. Now a new, patented technology has been developed to purify and concentrate minerals into organic complexes the body can easily recognize. Only one tenth of a gram of Phytochrome™ special, cruciferous vegetable delivers more than the Recommended Daily Value of Chromium.
