The Missing Mineral Your Body Needs to Prevent Insulin Resistance

by lydia on January 23, 2015

Recently, in my post ‘How To Decrease Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes in Just A Few Weeks‘, I shared that blood sugar can be well managed through your diet. Today, I’m here to share a bit more in case just diet alone isn’t cutting it for some of you. The truth is, while diet is a primary way to maintain health, often it is too broad to fix underlying imbalances. One key reason is that most of us have serious mineral imbalances and if we don’t know exactly what they are we can’t correct them through diet alone. That said, there is one missing mineral that is playing into the issue of insulin resistance (and diabetes); chromium.

A deficiency of biologically active chromium can lead to insulin resistance. WHY?

First let’s look at the issues of why chromium is missing…..

  1. Not enough in the diet to begin with (processed foods/soil depletion)
  2. Excessive loss due to constant high carb diet and or refined/processed foods diet
  3. Or the body’s inability to convert chromium into it’s biologically active form.

Soil depletion and our diets are key reasons chromium is missing for most everyone these days (namely in the United States). The modern day S.A.D diet (Standard American Diet) both due to processing/refining and excessive intake of starches and sugars spells disaster for the blood sugar as well as that it both does not contain much if any chromium to begin with in addition to further depleting any there may be to begin with.

Amazing how impactful our depleted soils are to our food supply.

Would the hair analysis show the trace minerals also? Such an interesting way to test. Does it show a history of your health based on length of hair?

Nice article.

Yes, hair analysis shows the trace minerals. We only test the newest hair growth closest to the scalp and that gives us a look at the past 3 months to current of someone’s biochemistry.

Glad you enjoyed the post! :)
