Chromium picolinate improves both blood sugar levels and energy levels
Chromium Picolinate - Improves and helps maintain healthy glucose levels
Chromium Picolinate improves both blood sugar and energy levels by helping the transport of glucose into your cells to be used for fuel. It helps decrease sugar cravings, helps hold calcium in the bones and may help with osteoporosis, it increases antibodies, helps burn calories, and also helps to increase the hormone DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), which plays many and various roles as a steroid hormone, and which is believed to effectively protect against many diseases.
Chromium is a micronutrient (meaning the body only needs it in trace amounts - generally no more than 200 micrograms a day) and is essential to the body. However, the body has difficulty absorbing it by itself, with the addition of the protein picolinate found in this supplement, it enters the bloodstream more easily.
Chromium is found in various foods such as scallops, green pepper, brewer’s yeast, shrimp, lamb chops, lettuce, cabbage, but is greatly lacking in today’s highly processed and factory-farmed food supply.
The microminerals, arsenic, cobalt, nickel and tin can be sufficiently consumed through diet.
Chromium has been seen to stimulate muscle development, increase physical endurance, help lower excess cortisol (therefore play a role in weight loss, specifically abdominal fat), and help reduce bone loss.
Chromium deficiencies may occur due to ageing, over exercise, high carbohydrate diet, high intake of refined sugars, and where foods have been grown in soil that is low in chromium.
