Kenali Hati Diri Anda dan GTF

Pn, Masrisa, a very senior nutritionist and an expecting mother who is going to give birth soon had delivered a talk related to liver and GTF on 28/12/2009 (Monday).

From the talk, the audience were well-informed that the liver is the largest single organ in the human body. The liver has more than 200 functions and plays a central role in nearly all body functions, including detoxifies the blood by filtering out the toxins such as air pollutants, pesticides, cigarette smoke, environmental chemicals, alcohol, prescription and nonprescription drugs that assault the body on a regular basis. There are over 100 types of liver diseases, let’s say jaundice, loss of sexual drive etc and because of it's many functions, many can be life-threatening unless treated. Hence, it is very important for maintainence of liver health.

Chromium is crucial for liver health because it helps control the metabolism of glucose, which is the most bioavailable form of muscle energy in nature. Good liver health depends on trace minerals like chromium. The liver needs chromium to manufacture fatty acids, lecithin, cholesterol and lipoproteins. Without chromium, blood fats tend to rise because the liver cannot filter them out.

Chromium is the central atom in the “glucose tolerance factor” (GTF), a hormone-like compound that works with insulin to transport glucose out of the blood and into the cells. Glucose is the body’s quickest fuel. GTF (containing niacin, vitamin B3, glycine, cysteine, glutamic acid etc.) enhances insulin, which results in the sugars passing quicker into the cells and in that way they are removed from the bloodstream. By stabilizing the blood sugar level it also assists in regulating the cholesterol in the blood. When this function (GTF) is not working properly, the cells resist insulin and do not properly absorb the glucose needed for energy. With chromium present in the diet, the intestines can produce GTF. However, food processing destroys much of the chromium content in foods and natural chromium levels decline with age and so with the action of the GTFinside our body.

Hence, GT&F® milk powder which is a patented biotechnology product serves as the best choice for GTF supplementation. The unique structure – Lactoferrin Chromium mimics the natural chormium inside mother breast milk thus it eases the best absorption of GTF by our body and allows cells to receive the glucose and nutrient needed from our daily diet. When body cells are healthy, indirectly our whole body system will be healthy as well since cell is the smallest unit to build up organ and system.

Before she ended the talk, she had also shared some of the testimonials that reflected the effectiveness of GT&F® for liver diseases.
