Chromium Polynicotinate Increases Lifespan of Test Animals

Chromium nicotinate, also known as chromium polynicotinate, is a patented oxygen-coordinated, niacin-bound chromium.  It demonstrated its ability to prolong the life span of test animals by more than 20 percent. The study, conducted by researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center (Washington, DC) and Creighton University Medical Center (Omaha, NE), was presented at the 46th Annual Meeting of the American College of Nutrition, September 22-25, 2005, in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

In the study, rats prone to many of the manifestations of aging were fed diets containing Chromium nicotinate, which increased their average life span by 22 percent compared to rats fed the same diet without chromium nicotinate. Rats fed chromium polynicotinate also experienced lower systolic blood pressure, lower circulating glucose levels, and a trend toward lower, normalized hemoglobin levels, a long-term indicator of blood sugar status. There were no abnormalities in blood chemistry, kidney or liver function in any group.

The first death in the chromium polynicotinate group did not occur until week 59, while the first death in the control (placebo) group occurred at week 47. Thirty three percent of the animals in the chromium nicotinate group lived at least one month beyond the last animal in the control group.

"We've long known that niacin-bound chromium provides significant health benefits relative to metabolic syndrome," stated lead researcher, Harry G. Preuss, M.D. from Georgetown University Medical Center. "These new results open the possibility that chromium nicotinate -- niacin-bound chromium -- may prolong human life as well."

Generically known as chromium nicotinate or chromium polynicotinate, ChromeMate is a unique oxygen-coordinated niacin-bound chromium complex that plays an important role in proper insulin function, maintenance of healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels, normal energy production, and promotion of healthy body weight. ChromeMate is protected by three U.S. patents, four international patents and other worldwide patents pending, and is the only niacin-bound chromium supplement with proven biological activity. Earlier this year, ChromeMate received GRAS status (Generally Recognized as Safe) for use in functional beverages.
