What is ZERAMAX™
ZERAMAX™ is a patented medical food containing 1,200 mcg of chromium as chromium 2-pyridine carboxylate and 4 mg of biotin, specifically formulated to address the unique unmet dietary need for chromium in patients with type 2 diabetes. ZERAMAX™ comes in an easy-to-swallow capsule that is taken once daily, with or without food. ZERAMAX™ should only be taken by adults (18 years or older). Because it is a medical food, ZERAMAX™ should be used under the supervision of a medical professional.
The ingredients in ZERAMAX™ have been medically evaluated together and alone in people with type 2 diabetes in double-blind, placebo-controlled, peer-reviewed clinical trials. The largest study was conducted with 447 subjects. In clinical studies, adding these ingredients to a patient’s anti-diabetic drug(s) provided high levels of an enhanced bioavailable form of chromium which promoted healthy blood glucose and cholesterol without increasing the incidence of adverse events, such as hypoglycemia, or weight gain.
Clinical studies have shown that the two primary ingredients in ZERAMAX™ can be safely taken with many types of oral prescription drugs that your patients may be taking for their type 2 diabetes, such as metformin, sulfonylureas, and TZDs. These ingredients have also been shown not to interfere with prescription medications, such as statins, anti-hypertensives (ACE-Inhibitors, ARBs, Beta Blockers, Calcium Channel Blockers, HCTZ), NSAIDs, or antiplatelet therapy.
ZERAMAX™ is not available in pharmacies or in retail stores. ZERAMAX™ can be purchased by your patients directly from the company by going online to www.zeramax.com or by calling Customer Service at 888-ZERAMAX (937-2629).
