InterHealth’s Zychrome Wins Best New Ingredient NutrAward

Zychrome, a form of chromium, received the NutrAward for best new ingredient at Nutracon 2012.


 InterHealth is proud to announce that Zychrome™ form of chromium received the NutrAward for best new ingredient at Nutracon 2012 on March 8th. Industry experts, scientists, nutritionists and Nutracon attendees voted among the four NutrAward best new ingredient finalists based on scientific merit, efficacy, market potential, safety, innovation and the ability to increase market credibility. Zychrome embodies all these attributes—it is a superior chromium that will help millions who need to manage their insulin and blood sugar levels.

Preliminary clinical research shows that Zychrome is 2x more effective than chromium picolinate in supporting insulin function. InterHealth started development of Zychrome over five years ago with the objective of creating the best possible chromium available. InterHealth’s Director of R&D, James Lugo, PhD, accepted the NutrAward on behalf of InterHealth. “The blood sugar health market has not seen anything new in over 20 years. Zychrome will reinvigorate this market as the next generation in chromium supplementation. This is a step in the right direction in managing insulin function and ultimately blood sugar control for millions of Americans,” commented Dr. Lugo.

“InterHealth is honored to be choosen as the NutrAward winner by industry leaders and colleagues,” added Dr. Lugo. The NutrAward program was created over 10 years ago to reward and recognize companies that are investing in rigorous and measurable scientific studies to prove the efficacy of their proprietary ingredients, products or technologies. The real winners are consumers that will benefit from Zychrome.
